Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

I have mostly used kick wax on this ski, but the 35mm mohair has been the best so far in terms of grip and glide on icy, refrozen snow- allowing me to avoid klister in mid-winter! Thanks, good to know! From what I'm reading it sounds like the mohair skins are better than nylon in every way except d...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

BTW- trimming the kicker skin to just behind the boot heel makes a massive difference in glide when XC skiing. yup, same here, you shorten to about 1-2 inches behind the heel and it starts to feel like a fishscale ski. 200's Gamme's would be cool, I really enjoyed having a set of old E99's in 200, ...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48

Thanks, but im also kind of a noob in bcx and hopefully on my way to my former trail running race weight soon so perhaps the 190s will do the job too? Or is Åsnes own recomendations way wrong? If you use the "height" part of the recommendation it says you should have 210's. The "weig...

Re: Anses Mountain Race 48, Mountain Touring 51, the Åsnes skin system appears to be genius.

Also, I just went down to my basement to fondle my Fischer Country Wax/Crowns that I have. They have very familiar profiles to the Mountain Touring 51. 60-52-57 dimensions and big camber (but no 3/4 metal edges, they are edgeless). They are really great skis, I love them. They are fast and stable a...

Re: Anses Mountain Race 48, Mountain Touring 51, the Åsnes skin system appears to be genius.

I just read your other post - so you're only allowed 1 pair of skis, the waxing MT51's are perfect. First and foremost you live in a cold climate and you don't want to miss out on the pleasure of gliding along on blue wax days, the days that remind us all why we do ski touring! :lol: You'll do fine ...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Gamme 54 BC

great review Gareth, it matches my experience well. It should be said that the edges on Gamme's are thicker than on current Fischers which has a big effect on durability - and this explains the lighter weight of the Fischers. The lighter weight could be desirable if you never ski on rocks and your s...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48

you're very tall, I would go longer to take advantage of your long strides. For comparison I am about 6-2 170 pounds and the MT51 feel good to me at 210cm.

Re: Anses Mountain Race 48, Mountain Touring 51, the Åsnes skin system appears to be genius.

I've been out a couple times recently with my 210 MT51's and love them. I was using the Rex Universal pine tar wax on cold ice and it worked great. I like the simple graphics on the MT series, they are nice-looking skis to leave sitting around the living room! Yes, the waxing version is more flexibl...
