Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

In a perfect world, I would like to have a ski that tracks straight during the kick and glide on hardpack. I would not even need a very snappy kick, as I am quite happy with the Eons on the hardpacked trails. It's just the wandering of the Rabbs that make them slightly annoying on I suggest you try...

How do you make the holes for the screws in the backcountry?
Do you carry a drill in your pack? :D

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

Damn, I didn't really want to buy any more new skis! The Rabbs were supposed to be the ultimate ski for me :lol:
Now I'll have to see if I can find a good deal on some fishscale skis...


Lilcliffy, the Intelligrip skins are 38mm wide.

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

How would the skins have compared to fishscales if they were available on that ski, in those conditions? I am also really interested in this. I don't have any fishscale skis, but I am thinking that the current conditions might suit them. We have still some snow on the forests, but that is very wet ...

Re: Frankenbindings

Not sure if this quantifies as FrankenBinding or not but it’s working AND giving me peace of mind as I’ve still got a tender ankle from last months misadventure... WonderfulWife gifted me with a set of brand new Telebry release plates. I mounted them (on inserts) with a Voile binding. The cables ar...

Re: Safety Gear

Black Diamond kneepads are light and nice but a pain to put on and off for yoyoing. Voile's have the clip that makes it easier but they seem bulkier. I've never used them though. I like the idea of using MTB kneepads. Most MTB pads are very comfortable nowadays, no need to take them off for climbin...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Verskis you are much wiser than me. Light touring skis just get deflected too much by heavy, chopped up, refrozen, tilled, and granular snow. On the other hand heavier, stiffer, skis more suited for resort snow wouldn't be nearly as pleasant in the backcountry. Being hard headed, I refused to ackno...

Re: Safety Gear

I use G-Forms and POC VPD 2.0s for mountain biking and skiing. G-forms are not that protective, but they are thin and comfortable, while the POCs are much more heavy duty but still pretty comfortable. POCs are very expensive but they will probably last much, much longer than the G-forms, as the thin...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

So- I just looked at the map of Finland. What's the climate like where you ski? And- is the deep soft snow you have very cold, dry and fluffy? Doesn't Finland have a much colder, more continental climate than Scandanavia? Northern and eastern parts of Finland have continental climate, with colder t...

I have the Eon Wax.

Sorry! I didn't get that impression, nor did I mean to suggest that!

No problem at all!
