Did you buy the new Ingstad- or the previous generation?
too deep for Nansens.
This is great experienced info...And not surprising with that narrow waist...
My Nansens have no Nordic rocker by the way, nor do they ski like it.
Again- thank you- great info.
They do it all, but do not shred like my e109s.
VERY interesting...I am assuming that you have the current model E109 with the Nordic-rockered tip? What produces that "turniness" in the E109 vs. the Nansen- the rockered tip?
My wish is more for tip rocker- with less sidecut- on these midwidth BC-XCD skis designed for fresh, soft snow. More width underfoot = better flotation and traction. The rockered tip can make up for the loss of sidecut on fresh, soft snow. They would track better when XC skiing in deep soft snow as well...
However, I have shredded my e109s to tatters in two years! Not a durable ski at all,
This, unfortunately, does not surprise me- performance and cost reduction over durability...
I will share more when (and if) the Ingstads show up. My ski bench is ready.
Looking forward to it!
