Re: The Åsnes Thread

Running a T4 on everything I am still leary of anything more than a 100 underfoot for me. Maybe if I went really short? It would be a lot of $ to experiment. I'm not sold. I think I can do everything I want to do with a high-90 waist. This makes sense to me too. Voile describe's the V6 as an "...

Re: The Åsnes Thread

I think there is a place for a mid-60 ski, a mid-80 ski, and then a fat ski. Yeah- with you here. Though to be honest- I am so impressed with stability and supportiveness of my Storetind that I think it stretches into the domain of a mid-80 ski... I think it depends on the climate- when I consider ...

sidewall vs. cap; polyurethane vs. ABS

So at some point- when my children are older- I will be planning big mountain ski trips again and looking for big mountain ski touring equipment. At this point, the two ski manufacturers that I am most enamored with are Volie and G3. Voile uses cap construction for their skis. G3 uses sidewall const...

Re: The Åsnes Thread

The FT 62 does not have near as much camber as your Storetind. This is interesting..The FT62 is a very unique ski in the current market- the camber/rocker/flex profile of a backcountry downhill touring ski- but with width dimensions and weight that would make them very easy to drive with XC boots.....

Re: The Åsnes Thread

Great to hear that Asnes is still going strong! I must admit I prefer the graphics/colours of the previous models... I wonder if they are going to keep making the FT62? That would likely be my next purchase- with NNNBC on deck. Also want to try the edgeless Kongsvold... And- of course, the new Ingst...

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

Hey Al,

Yes my daughter's Balla Hoks have the kid-sized universal binding mounted on them:

They allow the use of any boot- they work very well and are very supportive- and, easy to get in/out of.

Re: The Åsnes Thread

The Falketind 68 is receiving yet another redesign- it will become the "Rabb 68".
Hi again Gareth

The Falketind 68 is totally sold out.

A new version of this will arrive in October, and it will be named Rabb 68. It is exactly the same ski, but with another name and design.

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

April 29th was my last day of skiing this season- I could have continued skiing into that week but I had to go into work. Man the snow has melted here very fast come the first of May! Still lots of snow higher up and further North. But- my winter is over! And- it was another great one! Moved the hen...

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

Looks like your ski partner is a hardy northern girl. Hope you had the right skis trying to keep up with her riding those Hoks ;) ! Maeve is now 4 years old (the youngest of us)- she is hardy- and hard to keep up with. It is getting to the point that I almost have to sneak out of the house to dow a...
