Re: Ski Review: Åsnes Storetind

Though I wonder- as you suggested- if a 68 that was a little "too" short for XC touring might give you excellent hardpack performance? That tension should give wicked edge hold- as long as you are not fighting with too much camber... That was my original idea. A ski that light with a 15m ...

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

The Storetind is both a better XC touring ski and a MUCH better downhill ski than any of the conventional "hybrid" skis (e.g. Epoch/S-98/Annum/S-112). Hummm.... Not sure what makes the ST a better DH ski than the S98/10MTN? The overall flex and the tips? Actually, the resistance underfoot...

Re: Ski Review: Åsnes Storetind

LC, thanks a lot for this comparison. From what you said and Fish reviews, I thought they were single camber, without that a-bit-harder-to-squish second one. I like my DH-oriented skis more flat than this. I wanted the short radius one (15m) for hard pack turns, but if you confirm the resistance is ...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

" The new Ingstad will do everything that the E109 promises, but fails to deliver. " Dude, what a rad way to sum up what the new Ingstad is all about! Brilliant!!! The original Ingstad was exactly the same as the Combat Nato. So you're saying that the old Ingstad/NATO was softer and now t...

Not possible. All the Tinds have been in production for a few years now.
The 2 pairs inside that box are prototypes, skis not yet available on the market... 8-)

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

A mysterious package from some remote land has magically fallen here. Straight from the heavens above. It seems like the winter Gods of Norway dropped some magic here in North America. Something to do with the XCD Knights perhaps? God, I do not deserve to have this come under my roof. That is too mu...

Re: Least active, best edging boot/binding combo?

Yep, Scott Excursions would be the closest thing. T4s are a bit stiffer. With Burnt Mountain pins they make a nice combo. Have you tried NNN-BC and leathers? With the right boot, you can get almost as much edge control and activeness as NTN, but with the smooth-and-cool leather feel... 1,000,000 tim...
