Still crushing and figuring these skis out. I will say the XCD with NNN-BC has always been a bit of a challenge for me but I am the dedicated type. Today I decided to take a page out of when I learned tele. Speed and pitch are your friend, Gamme The Green Knight is your Guide (minus the double pole plant), lean in, feel the wind, and CRUSH ON. I had some serious moments today coming down the mountain after skinning up. The clicking in the brain has begun! WOW. Fun ski! WOW!

I am using the 58mm Mohar X-Skin mostly- when I need the kicker skin (or rather wish to avoid soft wax/klister).

However...

We had a spectacular warm sunny afternoon yesterday- with loads of soft untracked snow to fly through!
I had been on a perfect Swix Green tour the night before and figured I might get away with Swix Blue Extra...no such luck and because it was only Dec 20- not freakin Mar 20- I was unwilling to spread softer wax or klister..

So- I decided to go with the X-Skins...
It ended up being an educational test- by accident.
One skiing partner was on his Ingstad BC with 58mm mohair X-Skin- I thought I was on the same. The third skier was on my E-109 Tour with 50mm Easy-Skin.
I was getting much better glide than the other two- couldn't figure it out until we stopped for a break and I noticed that I had grabbed my 45mm mohair X-Skin by accident!! I then had to try the Ingstad with the 58mm- huge difference in glide!!

If I had to have one skin for a ski as wide as the Ingstad BC it would be the 58mm mohair, but I highly recommend having the 45mm as well!

We should probably move the kicker skin discussion to a separate thread?

Been using the Ingstad for three seasons now... Awesome ski... Still totally amazed at what it can do... I like the Ingstad more and more every day... Every year... Perfect on the downhill side, perfect on the flats, perfect for long walks in the wood... Ok ok, today was my first time taking Helge with me this winter... Falling for them again... 8-)
