Re: Mystery of the Single Camber Wax Pocket Explained

What I found out recently is that if I just place the tail on the ground, and hold the tip, flexing the ski without pressuring the ski center. Sorry, I don't really understand this. How do you flex the skis without pressuring the center? Are you bending the tip so much that it starts to bend the wh...

Re: Asnes New X-Skin System Review (Nylon, Mohair and Race)

Does anybody have experience on both the Åsnes X-Skin Race and the Madshus Intelligrip? Any noticeable difference in grip or glide? I have the Åsnes 60mm Mohair X-skins but I am a bit disappointed by the lack of glide on them (but the grip is excellent!). I also have the Intelligrip skins that glide...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Thanks for the tips Fisheater! Now I have stripped the glide wax off and ironed in 2 layers of Start Nordic wax (similar as Swix Polar) tip to tail, and corked in a couple of layers of Rex Blue almost from tip to tail, let's see how that works. On my Eons it works fine, so should be working on the R...

Re: Frankenbindings

There is also another simple solution for having you cables out of the way without removing them: 25231.jpg Voile use to make them; you snap them underneath the lip of the heel piece. I use that system on one of my ski for years; great! They are probably easy to make out of HDPE or with a 3d printe...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Now I have a couple of trips with waxed bases and leather boots. The waxing has not been real success so far, probably because I tried to "cheat" and did not use grip wax for the whole base, I used glide wax for the tip and tail. I haven't been able to get a rock solid grip for climbing (o...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Verskis, Reading your comment that you have difficulty pushing the bases of the Rabb skis together leaves me with two thoughts. The first thought being the new Rabb must be similar to the Storetind as your description seems close to what Gareth describes. The other thought is that the flex of the R...

Of course that is applicable here. Nice simple solution to a binding related problem!

And don't forget to add some glue to the hole to seal the ski core!

Re: The Finest Leathers: Nordic Norm 75mm Backcountry/Telemark Boots

I'm really surprised about the size of Cannatonic's Rifugios, as my pair was definitely undersized. Maybe Andrew has adjusted their sizing, or maybe my pair had wrong size labels? But I can confirm that the Alico Ski March boots are much more heavy duty than the Andrew Rifugios. The weight differenc...

Re: Cold Clothing

Oh, forgot to add that mesh base layers are really good because they do not absorb much moisture. I use this one under my wool or fleece layers: https://www.svala.com/en/products/100-dry/181012-1230-100-dry-stretch-mesh-shirt-black/ The yarns are quite thick on the Svala shirt, so there is a layer o...
