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

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 of the ST scares me a bit... Sounds like more work trying to crush that second camber on the downhill... Only one way to know, I sure will buy a pair this fall....

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

Sorry- I guess I didnt answer your question very well- yes I think that the Alaska is a better fit on the 62, than the 68. But- whether the Alaska is enough for the 68, depends on the terrain one is going to ski with it... Of note- based on Bob-s experience- the 62 is a very capable downhill ski as ...

Hey Woods- Right- I guess I thought you were still using 3pin on the wider S-Bounds... I have never been thrilled with either the Epoch or the S-Bound 98- perhaps for different reasons than you- but the Storetind is both a better XC touring ski and a MUCH better downhill ski than any of the conventi...

Re: The Åsnes Thread

If it doesn't, FT62 is next up on the docket for this niche. I am very happy with my long touring skis, I am very happy with my telemark skis (Objective, KOM, Atomics), it's this one weird in between that I'm still struggling to make perfect for the longer moderate downhill tours like the Wildcat V...

Re: happy summer, ya'll

I am starting to get the ski itch...
Though I do need to focus on everything I need to get done before snow fly!

Hey TM- did you get a new pair of skis? E-109s?

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

Translation of Asnes' descriptors of ski flex-camber: Markedly Wax Pocket = True double camber Moderate Wax Pocket = Camber and a half Marked Chamber (FT62, RABB68) = Camber and a half with a lower profile than MWP Classic Camber (TINDAN86) = Flat, single camber perhaps? There is no info at all on t...

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Hey Bob,
When you get a chance give those sweet FT62s a good squeeze for me.
I am wondering how resistant they are underfoot...

Re: Ski Review: Åsnes Storetind

Just came up from the basement- comparing the Storetind to a number of my skis- including the 2018 Ingstad... I have actually changed my mind on the underfoot camber-flex of this ski- I think it is better described and understood as camber-and-a-half ski underfoot! The Storetind has every bit as muc...
