Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.
At a pound less than Karhu's in-bounds version, the Jak BC is a featherweight climber made with carbon components and the new environmentally friendly Greenlight Core, which is made of sustainably harvested Chinese wood. 124/90/113, 7.1 lbs; karhu.com
Bonus: Lots of pop for such a light ski.
Bummer: It's a little narrow underfoot for fluffy backcountry days.
