AT-tech vs Fjellski-XC?

Nothing mind-blowing here- just an interesting read:
https://www.utemagasinet.no/fjellski/hv ... g-fjellski

Also interesting to note that both skiers remain convinced that their respective ski tech is better for a multi-day trek!

Re: Combat NATO or Gamme 54, same same?

Hate to add another ski to your consideration- What about the Nansen? You... you just opened the door marked 'Choosing between the Gamme 54 and the Nansen' to some poor stranger on the internet. "Walk right in." You really did it. Just like it was nothing. This should be on your conscience for year...

Re: New BCXC considering Fischer Traverse 78 / S 88 / S 98

I'll likely heed your advice, and be sensible to opt for something for main use case, (70% singletrack / 20% woods / 10% downhill). Based on that going to eliminate S-bound 98. The 98 will definitely offer "better" downhill turning potential with its greater sidecut- I have not handled the current ...

Re: Combat NATO or Gamme 54, same same?

About the fitting in tracks, it was about the fact that in some traverse track that I went, sometime I followed iced tracks left from skinny skies, and even sometime even had to go through a resort at the start or end of a more wilderness trek... Eh, it's like that sometime... Just don't know the e...

@Laurence C

So- from our descriptions/comparisons the Amundsen and the Gamme 54 definitely at least appear to have more in common with each other than with the Combat Nato.

Though the Gamme 54 is clearly more manageable downhills than the Amundsen.

Re: Binges, some help is needed.

Hello Norway Ski! I am not sure if I completely understand what you mean by "stiff binding"? As far as a plain 3-pin 75mm binding- the Rottefella Super Telemark is by far my favourite- easiest to get into and provides the tightest clamp, especially with BC-XC boots that have a narrower duckbill. I u...

Re: Ski Review: 2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

On the Gamme 54 BC over the last few days- trail skiing. Snow conditions have been great- trail-breaking has been brutal for a couple of weeks. We had a bit of rain overnight a days ago- followed by freeze- producing breakable crust with over a foot of soft snow underneath- over a frozen base. Today...
