The Ousland must have easier turn initiation and a shorter effective edge than the Gamme-
I was amazed at how much tip rocker the Ousland has- even more than the current E-99 Xtralite!:

It's almost as much as the Ingstad BC!!!
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

This is interesting since I have a 200cm Gamme but think about a longer ski, mainly for floatation but I worry about maneuverability.

Allround ski Ousland 210 vs Gamme 200. I should post it in another thread probably! Thanks for your invaluable input!
