When the moment arrives, and your little ripper wants to follow you into the backcountry, they will need the right equipment starting with the right skis. A fantastic and affordable option is the Boost JR ski from Hagan. In creating a kid's ski, Hagan has downsized ski length, but has not downsized ski construction. Featuring a reinforced mounting area, capped construction, sintered base, full twin tip profile, and skin notch in the tail, these skis are built to handle whatever your youngin' can throw at them. When designing this ski, Hagan chose to implement their, "tour rocker," allowing for flotation in deeper snow while still maximizing edge hold on the firmer days. The reinforced mounting plate helps with durability and power transfer, while the twin tip makes turn initiation a breeze. A ski that is light enough for a morning ski mission followed by an afternoon of hot chocolate and riding chair lifts is ultimately what you have been searching for. Every little kid wants to be a big skier so give them the equipment that can make it possible with the Hagan Boost JR ski.

Questions & Reviews
any thoughts on using this ski in 145cm as part of a lightweight, easy to ski, budget friendly touring/mountaineering set up? Skier would be 5ft 2in, 135lbs, intermediate skill level- not looking to ski super steep or fast, just trying to maximize efficiency on the way up and ease of control on the way down. currently skiing a DIN of 5. would there be any performance or compatibility issues with putting something like the Dynafit Superlite 2.0 on these? and is there a pre cut skin to match them? thanks!
I own a pair of Ride Junior skis and was wondering if the Boost pre-cut skins would fit them. It looks like there are also pre-cute Ride Junior skins, but they're sold-out and don't seem to have a clear timeline of being back in stock whereas the Boost look like they'll be in stock around October.
