Re: Asnes Tindan 86 Ski Review

Be careful what you wish for Fisheater, better be very precise with your requests... What if Father Christmas brings you those cheap, Chinese made G3 FINDrs with a 86mm waist? I have to say that mounting the Tindans was probably the hardest mounting decision I ever made. Yep, they only have a boot c...

Re: Asnes Ingstad BC 2018 Ski Review

40mm Race X-Skins are my favorite to-go ones here... Couldn't live without them, better than mohair, the closest thing to wax, works under any condition. Access Skins or Nylon X's for climbing...

Even better: The Double-U-L Ingstads!

Re: The Norpine Thread

Until now I wasn't even sure what "norpine" was....so it's the old-school tele skis - skinny and flat camber. You can norpine on whatever you like with leathers... But hey, double camber XC skis are not fun at all on hard pack. And modern alpine skis are way too heavy for this graceful sp...

Re: NNN-BC Leash plates

I have been in touch with Rotte, and they are simply impossible to find.

Also keep in mind that if you find some, they are NOT compatible with the current NNN-BC models. There is no space under the newer bindings for it, and the hole is not at the same place...

Re: Asnes Tindan 86 Ski Review

I attributed the additional weight in the Tindan to the poplar core, the Objective has a paulownia core. Probably... I think it also might be due to the different geometry... But hey, they will bring it down to 500g in only a few years...! ;) I had not even considered NNN in that terrain, it was an...

Re: The Norpine Thread

Cooool...! Ski Marches plus FT62 makes a killer Norpine setup! Sounds like a lot of fun... Hey, I bought the 62's because of your review...! Try getting rid of the cables at some point... It's quite harder, it requires more muscle power and finesse, but the reward is 10 times the fun! (No matter wha...

Re: What is the ultimate compromise ski?

After catching the Åsnes fever on this forum, I will be buying Åsnes Rabb68 skis in 180cm length once the Finnish retailer gets them, maybe right after Christmas. I am pretty excited, I hope this will finally be my ultimate compromise ski that I am happy to ski everywhere! A very, very wise choice....

Re: The Norpine Thread

Yep, the Asnes Nordic are the woodies I restored a few years ago... I have another pair of old Asnes with a bit less camber that I think I will strip too... Thank you so much for the lead on the XCD Comp. It's honestly the most precious and dearest ski I own. You have no idea how much I love this sk...

The Norpine Thread

Definitely my favorite free-heel discipline after NTN and XCD. Single camber and skinny light skis are nearly impossible to find nowadays... Thank God for the Falketinds, they are almost the only ones on the market over 160cm. (I can't wait for the day skimo racing skis will be available in 220cm!) ...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

I have been stuck with this incurable fever for 42 years... If you ever hear of a good therapy, please drop me a note...
