New skis made it this weekend. 3 lb 4 oz per as pictured above, or 2 lb 14 oz a ski naked. Compare to this photo of the 125. Not too much weight gain for the extra area of the 145. Dimensions are the same as the proto 125: 121-110-121. Inserts are more forward than I’d thought they’d be, a subject on which I’ll have to report later. Note three heel pad inserts; I went with a single traction pad over heel wires as I don’t plan on doing steep skinning with the skinsert.

Cool Dave. Is that their 75mm binding or did you mount a different brand/model? Also, what boot do you plan to use?
Dave: I also own the two pairs on the right & am very interested in your view of the 145s…is an assessment pending :)? Thanks.
[…] C’s posts: Altai Hok: by the numbers, Tools; choices (for comparing different options) and The 145 Altai Hok (for those interested in the longer option providing more floatation). The skis are built with wood […]
Please check out the Hive Snowshoes.
Another item for you to review.
BTW: I am waiting in vain for snow to test out my Hok 145s.
I went to swap out my Universal Trace bindings on my Hok 145’s with a generic 3-pin binding (not the Voile).
I noticed that the duckbills on my T3s, which are the same size as my T2s, don’t fit into my generic 3 pin bindings.
Did your T2s fit into the Voile 3 pin system or did you have to cut off some of the duckbill?
