The key is to be in sync with your skis, let them do the work, ride them as opposed to driving them

This is one of the main secrets of the XCD doctrine...

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

so what's the difference w/ Gamme? Softer tip and lighter weight? A few subtleties but yes that is the main difference... Seems like the Ousland is better for traditional XC - or an expedition ski that can do turns (unlike Amundsen). If you plan to make more turning descents is the Gamme still the ...

Re: Asnes Falketind 62 versus Rabb 68

Can anyone comment on this year Rabb vs FT or simply on the FT? The new Rabbs are the same as last year. The redesign comment Crister made was referring to the old FT68, which is slghtly different from the current 68s. The Rabbs are *totally* different from the previous ST68 though... About the 62'...

Re: Nnnbc magnum bindings on wide skis???

I see no reason for not doing it... NNN-BC is much better than pins for XC skiing... And much better on the downhill too... They sure would make a nice skishoes / sliding setup... Don't expect to be able to make precise turns though, unless your 106 waisted skis are holy grail fatties under 5lbs... ;)

Re: Asnes USGI skis/bindings/boots

I'm not in the loop, but it looks like a company named Serket USA partnered with Icelantic to provide skis and has come up with a 'universal' binding to supply the USMC. Nice find Rongon... Absolutely beautiful military Iceland skis... Price is a bit steep at 800$ for 7.5lbs planks though... I gues...

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

you made me consider getting the WL version, but I don't want the drag and the noise that usually come with the scales ;) If your waxless skis are making noise, it means that you are doing something wrong. Either using them on the wrong type of snow, or skiing under unhygienic conditions (Other peo...

For example- Asnes' current Telemark binding mounting recommendations for their downhill skis is to mount at BP.
Hummm... Wrong, all the Asnes downhill skis have boot center marks on them... :)

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

Awesome skis... Much faster than the Ingstad... More versatile and smoother than the Gamme... Who else got a pair?
I know a few of you guys bought them this season... What do you think about the Ousland so far?

Re: New Asnes WL Waxless Skis 2018-2019 Ingstad WL & Nansen WL

I gave my smooth Ingstads to Lilcliffy two years ago... I stick to the WL ones now and couldn't be happier...
The Magik Å pattern is amazing, perfect grip and glide even on cold snow... Happiness is a pair of waxless Asnes skis...
