Re: New OAC XCD GT UC

OAC XCD 160 GT UC: Width - 116-86-116mm Oh! my bad, didn't see this... This is definitely the one I have seen, the wider one. I couldn't match a 85-72-80 profile with what I remember from the skis... From what I recall, they had different graphics from the actual MEC picture too... But hey, I might...

Re: New OAC XCD GT UC

I had the chance to see the new / upcoming OAC XCD GT UC here last winter... I was very excited about it... According to Miika at OAC, it's a " wider version of the ski ". Well, there must be something I don't get here since the specs are the same as the first model. According to the NA d...

Re: OAC XCD Skis

Here's another of the original OAC XCD 160 on the tour in Lapland. Lots of uphill and flat in this one. Looks like a bit of a slog, but still fun: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eHDC-8Mw-D8 And another with some downhill/turn action... (music makes me wanna kill my self though [emoji24]) https://m.yo...

Re: OAC XCD Skis

Whoaaaaa! Just realized that the skis in the video test are NOT the standard XCD 160- they are the new XCD GT UC. OAC XCD profile: 85-72-80mm OAC XCD GT UC profile: 116-86-116mm Oh shit! I'm still new to this and I did notice the "GT" designation in the video but somehow just thought it w...

Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

Looked at your ORS shopping cart- my family has a couple pairs of the Offtrack 5 BC boot- it is super comfortable and warm- BUT- it is VERY soft and not very supportive. Certinainly softer than a boot like the Alpina 1550 you were looking at. The Offtrack 5 is not much more supportive than my Rossi...

Re: OAC XCD Skis

Man LC....I was actually gonna start a thread about these today myself! But I see there already is one. Good stuff! They are a really intriguing Ski for sure. They feel "accessible" in a way that I like. This almost seems like a great Ski to have around just so when friends from the city v...

Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

You can't go wrong with either one IMO, they will be lots of fun. Lot of good information from LC on these skis. You will have to find out what kind of BC skier you are. When I did lots of resort skiing & snowboarding I still liked the occasional day in the BC doing XC skiing, usually at local ...

Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

This is definitely still a bit of a point of confusion for me. I actually reached out to Woods directly to ask more specifically about his feelings on the 78s in light of the fact that he mentioned that he liked them quite well at first, but once he got the 88s they began gathering dust quickly and...
