Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2019-2020!)

So I have a set of the updated Gamme 54 BC: BTW- the description on the Norwegian site seems up to date- the English site seems to describe the outgoing model? Hi guys. We have had some problems with the English webpage, and the process of updating information and pictures has made more head proble...

Re: Skins- off-season storage

Climbing SKIN STORAGE: Climbing skins should be kept dry, sheltered from sunlight (dark) and in normal room temperature. The is no need to freeze down quality skins, as some rumors have it. The most important to notice is that climbing skins should be dried properly after use, and this should NOT be...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Nah that actually looks much worse than the pattern on those early Amundsen waxless skis I mentioned a long time ago. I bet that pair you referenced has homemade diy scales. As you know, beauty is i the eye of the beholder. And besides, to me, nothing looks and feels better than a properly kicked w...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Great to get your input Christer, helps in making choices. When I look at the Voile Traverse though, it's about the same weight as my TTS set-up on several pairs of my skis. I can see the Traverse as being OK if the climb is gradual where stride and glide is possible, but if you need climbing bars ...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Thank you Crister for all your information. What you you say is the closest thing in the Asnes lineup to a waxless Falketind? Hi! The closest Waxless option would be the Ingstad BC WL. But, I would argue that you can manage a long way with a pair of regular FT62's and a set of 30mm Mohair X-Skins (...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Hello Crister- Could you give us some more information on your FT62 setup? Why did you choose the 3-pin Traverse binding and how does it perform on that ski? Do you always use the heel cable? What do you think of the riser plate on a backcountry ski that narrow? What boot(s) are you using with the ...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

What does the FT stand for?.....The 62 is possibly the ski that can ski the downs well but are a bit slower on the cruise?....Could these do the job at a ski area if one went there with them?....Ski in lots of areas with lots of touring.....Always going up to see what there is at the top....AND hav...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2018-2019!)

Just read your summer care guide. For steel edges, what are the correct angles to use for filing the base and sidewalls of Asnes Nansens? Hi Crister, I wonder what is new with the FT 62 aside the different graphic? There was a discussion https://telemarktalk.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2453 about the ...
