Stockli Laser AR Skis

The Stockli Laser AR skis blur the lines of a front side carver and an all-mountain ski. These days, skis are going a bit narrower for more fun and carving prowess. The 83 mm waist of the Laser AR means that you still get solid on-trail performance, but there's a bit of extra width in there for off-trail adventures. You won't feel locked into a particular turn shape, style, or snow condition, as the Laser AR is a well-rounded ski that just so happens to be a strong carver. For advanced and expert skiers who love to go fast and have stability and precision to spare, the Stockli Laser AR loves to rip around the whole mountain. Built with a wood core and metal laminates, these skis are constructed much like a race ski, but have a wider and more forgiving profile and shape. The slight tip rocker profile helps the skier get into and out of turns with ease, and even provide a bit of float for when the snow gets soft. Skiers will love the precision and performance of the skis, and while the on-trail personality is spectacular, the off-trail capabilities are the most surprising. The wide shovel, coming in at 130 mm, can both rise above fresh snow as well as dig in to harder conditions. This is the start of the ski's 16.5-meter turn radius, which is short enough to captivate slalom and GS fans alike.

  • Sidecut: 130/83/112 mm at 175 cm length

I rented a 2020 Stockli AX 161 last season. I raced with them and loved them compared to my All Mountain Blizzard Black Pearl. I was wondering the different between the AX and the AR. I am buying primarily for racing. I am a beginner to intermediate racer.
Question by: Ouida Brown on Nov 16, 2020, 10:40 PM
Hi Ouida!
The wider and more all-mountain oriented AR won't quite have the torsional stiffness and race-like feel of the AX. I think for a racing application, the AX is certainly a better choice. Have fun!

How does the Laser AR perform in the bumps? Do you need to ski the zipper line or could you ski a gentler line?
Question by: JP on Feb 18, 2020, 11:57 AM
Hi JP!
Great bump performance, but slightly on the stiff side. If you're heavier or comfortable driving the tips of skis into the fronts of moguls, they'll do fine in the zippers, but overall, they prefer carving around the bump rather than blasting through it. It's pretty pilot-driven, though. Have fun!

I ski on piste, mostly short turns, no bumps, no powder, like to ski gates too, old school style skis together. I am pretty sure i bought my Stockli SC skis them from you maybe 8-10 years ago, was living in Aspen then, now in Park City, they got lost somehow. I was gifted some K2 Chargers, nice ski, quick, definitely not the Stockli feel. Last year I bought Head iRally Supershapes, kept them last season, never liked them, went back to the K2 skis.

I can probably demo all the Stocklis here in PC and come back to you. What is the current differences between SC and AX? I think the AR model is not for me. I like a 161cm length. I'm 5'7" 140 pounds.
Question by: Neil Hight on Jan 10, 2020, 8:46 PM
Hi Neil!
The SC is turnier, with a narrower waist and a shorter radius shape. The shorter lengths are usually indicative of a shorter turn aptitude, but both are built generally the same way, which is pretty amazing. You'll get more versatility both in terms of turn shape and terrain availability out of the AX while I'd keep the SC on firm, groomed surfaces. Hope that helps!

I'm lightweight (132 pounds) and like skiing the whole mountain including bumps and trees. A couple of years ago i rented a pair of Stockli AX and thought they were a little bit too stiff for me. Are the AR less stiff than the AX? Also the above description says there is metal in the ski but I see no mention of that for AR on Stockli's website. Given my weight, height (5'-2"), and ability (expert) what length do you recommend?
Question by: Paul R on Mar 11, 2020, 10:28 AM
HI Paul!
Yes metal in both and they're roughly the same stiffness. I'd look to the 161 in that ski for your stats and application. Have fun!

I've been skiing on on my AC4 Unlimited's 177cm for years. Just love them above all other skis in my closet and take them out every time except on deep power days. I'm an expert, fast skier. Fewer moguls nowadays but still do well in the steep chutes. Looking at the Stockli Stormrider 88 or Laser AR as replacements. Going to the 184 (in stock) on the 88's seems a little long. On the AR's do you recommend going down to the 175 or up to the 182?
Question by: Peter on Mar 13, 2021, 3:42 PM
Hi Peter,
I would recommend the 175 size, since you are used to the 177 size going up to the 182 might feel too long. The 175's you will have more control of turn shape, especially when you want to hope in the bumps once in a while. With Stockli you do not need to worry about stability at a shorter length, their skis are well constructed to handle all the conditions and are very smooth. Hope this helps, SE

Hello; I'm a 72 year old intermediate skier looking to send into retirement my 12 year old K2 Axis /164 ski's. I have very much enjoyed these ski's however when in Park City a couple seasons ago I demo'ed a pair of Stockli's and throughly enjoyed those but cannot remember the model ? I ski mostly groomed blue runs and enjoy making short radius turns at medium speeds ... any suggestions as to which Stockli model ,,,, ps I'm 5'9 and 175 lbs. thanks,,,,Bob
Question by: Robert Turner on Mar 23, 2022, 6:15 PM
HI Bob!
The Laser AR is 83 mm underfoot and the AX is 78. For 2023, they change name and slight shape to Montero AR at 84 in the waist and Montero AX at 80. Both about the same build. I think the 84/AR is a great choice for you moving forward--wide enough for versatility but still amazing cruisers at a variety of speeds. I'd look to the 166 in that ski. Have fun!
