Cleaver 102, Big Horn 96, Tater Tot and UP Pro 92 earn high praise
Victor, Idaho – September 6, 2017
The top ski testers are in agreement, Sego Skis’ 2017/18 hand crafted products offer skiers an array of industry-leading shred sticks. With a plethora of awards from the likes of Freeskier Magazine, Powder Magazine, and Backcountry Magazine, Sego Skis are ready to make a huge impact this ski season.
Featuring Sego’s handcrafted design, the all-new Cleaver 102 (All Mountain) ski recently received Powder Magazine ‘Skier’s Choice’ award and Freeskiers Magazine’s Editors’ Pick award. Its 23 meter turning radius and titanal-reinforced core allowed top testers to stomp their landings and point their skis to “glory”. There is no comparison when it comes to big mountain skis for responsiveness, stiffness, and handling the demands of all day resort skiing. Included in the Sego’s Frontside ski collection is the top selling Big Horn 96. This all mountain steep slope tool has the capabilities and nimbleness designed for all elevations and every aspect.
“A playful poppy little demon,” said one Freeskier Magazine tester about the Big Horn 96. “Carved darn well, too.” Another tester followed pro shredder Sander Hadley for a lap and “ended up popping over some s#it [he] definitely shouldn’t have,” but was pleased when the skis “ate it all up just fine.”
Sego offers the most complete Women’s line in the industry. The new UP Pro 92 offers all the award-winning attributes of the UP Pro 110 in a more playful and versatile 92mm underfoot design. It has already captured the attention of Freeskier Magazine as Editors’ Pick and is expected to receive more accolades this Fall, as it is Sego’s best-selling women’s ski. Testers loved the UP Pro 92’s forgiveness and versatility, leading Freeskier Magazine to call the UP Pro 92 “Really fun for shredding corn, bumps, hard pack and everything in between.”
World renowned professional freeskiers have embraced Sego Ski Co. as their ride of choice. Freeride and big mountain pro Lynsey Dyer, says “today’s skiers need skis that achieve the highest performance whether they are skiing spines, hucking in-bounds, or going deep into the backcountry.” In their 4th season of operation, the Sego Ski line has grown to 16 models and offers something for every type of skier.
The widest ski in the Backcountry line, the Wave BC, and Up Tour have also received high praise this season. The ski’s efficient yet powerful core, which also utilizes Sego’s Directional Early Rise, led testers at Backcountry Magazine to ask, “what can’t this ski do?”
Sego Ski also offers the Lunch line selection for the young at heart. A playful selection of all-mountain jib friendly skis that keeps you coming back for seconds. The Tater Tot and Sloppy Joe received top accolades from Freeskier Magazine. Both skis received recognition for their low swing weight, and “butter zones” in the tip and tail that lend the ability to spin, press and fly off cliffs and BC booters.
As pioneering ski manufacturers based in the heart of the Teton the awards and testers feedback reinforced Sego’s status as America’s best All-Mountain handcrafted and designed ski brand.
Sego Ski Co. designs, tests and builds freeride skis in Teton Valley, Idaho. We are proud to operate a first-class factory staffed by skiers (and one snowboarder) and to offer high quality, American made skis. We ski them on a daily basis, and constantly seek to build the ultimate ride for powder hounds, beer league racers and everyone in between. Look for the Sego Bus at your local ski area to try our demos this winter; and if you visit the Tetons stop by for a beer in our showroom, and a tour of the factory.
