Re: 2015 Åsnes Combat NATO

Took my 210cm Combat Nato out on a wicked stream-valley tour on Sunday on very deep but highly-variable snow- Started out at about 300m- Skied down some 150m vertical to a stream-valley floor and then skied out the floor to the Nashwaak River- Started out on deep soft snow at about -10C = Swix Blue ...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

This is what happens when it’s fresh 1 to 5 F snow and you used swix Polar wax as a base coat. Then pushed through 2 miles of 6-8” powder. Next time I’ll wait a day or two for it to warm up Hey Krummholz- Just curious- I am wondering how the glide was on the skis in that photo? From the photo it do...

Re: X-Skin, Access Skin Questions

Hello guys my first question is something that has not been discussed as of yet. The second has and I hope you guys will save me from the search function. I have a pair of Gamme 54 and Falketind 62, but only one 45 mm mohair X-skin. The stock X-skin comes right to the back of the heel on the FT, ho...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

Anyone skiing the Nosi 76 with BC NNN? how does it compare to the Rabb 68? I am assuming that the Nosi 76 would be a good replacement for the S112 ? similar width but way better and much lighter. I am looking for a ski to tackle the EIGHT feet of snow that has fallen in the past 5 wks. My S112 feel...

Re: Åsnes Nansen Waxless

Excellent review on this ski Roelant- very much appreciated! It sounds like a highly versatile BC-XC ski- much more versatile than the Ingstad for example. My sense is that both the Nansen and the Gamme 54 are intended to be versatile- the Nansen sounds a bit more tuned towards turning than the Gamm...

Re: Åsnes Nansen Waxless

Great review and informative observations! Curious why you only considered waxless and how they compare to your wax Nansens? How much do you think conditions and temp effected grip of scales? Note: Just saw your review of wax Nansen so understand your logic for waxless. I find the kicker skins pret...

Re: Alpina BC 1600 Boot

Somewhere along the line I got the impression that all these BC soles are made by the same company and have about the same flex. The NNNBC outsoles are all identical and made by Rottefella. The stiffness and stability of the boot sole is a result of the materials and design of the midsole. There is...

Re: Alpina BC 1600 Boot

Thank you for your well explained answer. It seems like a very nice boot giving the price (I can get a pair for 140 euros). I was today in a shop and there is quite a difference between the different shoes in term of flex. So far the Crispi Stetind and the Alaska are the two most powerful boots I h...

Re: Alfa vs. Alpina sizing

I emailed Alfa support, enquiring about the "W" models for my extremely narrow feet. They confirmed that the W models are narrower. I also typically where 9.5-10 US mens size and had decided to wait until a 43W became available after doing the centimeter measurement on their site. Now I wonder if I...
