Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

My Gamme 54 have some nordic rocker but I would categorize it as miniscule, it looks about the same as my 2011-2012 vintage E99's, and only slightly more than my Asnes Mountain Tour 51's - the tips open maybe 1-2cm farther back.

Re: Onion River Sports closing...

very sorry to see them go! It's very difficult to make money as a small business these days. Ski shops in New England are practically an extinct species. I also blame the marketing of skiing and winter sports as something exclusively for wealthy people. But general hostility to small business is ver...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

I think Neptune sold the last of the white NATO skis, maybe more came in this year, I don't want to call & bother them when I know I'm not ordering! Looks like they definitely re-stocked as they have the mohair skins which they didn't carry last year. Do a search on the word "Asnes" an...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

I think Neptune has them, I was able to place 200cm Nansen in my cart and go to checkout. I'm guessing it's this year's version because the Ingstad is referred to as "very light" and costs more than Nansen. It's pricey compared to Craigslist, transfer station freebies,etc. but if you're th...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

I think he's joking about the price. I was able to score my pair of Nato Combat (same as last year's Ingstad) for $300 shipped from Neptune Mountaineering. Here you go Teleman, looks like Neptune does have some Asnes this year - the pics are of last year's skis. Nansens only $370 shipped. Either Nan...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

OMG, do NOT run those new Asnes over the rocks! I cringe at the thought of it. So what bindings did you use? let me take a wild guess....NNNBC. I've noticed before how Asnes seems to design all their BC/Fjell skis with BP and CC at the same point, which gives them a great feel for both XC for turns....

Re: Do we really need all that sidecut for powder skiing?

I agree, I never got on board the "shaped" ski revolution, but at 22cm I don't mind the Ingstad sidecut, that is the deepest of any of my skis and the acceptable limit. I'm not in bottomless powder often though.

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

nice picture, the edges do look solid! There must be a lot of rocks in Norway. :lol: They did something to lighten the Ingstad, it's listed at 1950 grams and the Combat NATO at 2400 right? They were both 2400 grams last year. Maybe the pawlonia wood is lighter? The new Ingstad is the same weight as ...
