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

My verdict after two seasons: The Ingstads are freaking awesome. The most amazing XCd ski on the market. If the first two letters of the word XCD are in capitals for you, the Ingstad is probably the only ski you need. And oh, I was wrong about my first impressions of the Ingstad on the groomers: The...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

My verdict after one season: The Mountain Race 48 SKIN is freaking awesome. If the words FAST and LIGHT mean something to you, the whole MR series will make you smile. They are awesome for everything: classic XC tracks, frozen fields skating or pure mountaineering. (Even jump-turning downhill is fun...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Try a stock, unmodified pair of Alfa Guard Advance boots (725g). With the proper technique, they will give you the same control power, at half the weight of your robot boots and 50 times the fun... 8-)

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

130 days of skiing so far this winter... Almost exclusively on the ALFA Guard Advance boots.
My whole fleet of Alpina Alaskas has been collecting dust in a closet all winter long... :roll:

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

Pretty sure there are at least three skiers on this site with the waxless Ingstad BC- Woods and Johnny included. There are only 4 pairs of the new Asnes WL skis in America. But this is about to change... The WL line should invade the US market next season... Stay tuned... 8-) I have about 50 days o...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

Woooah, thanks! AWESOME review! Excellent job! Almost makes me want to buy a 4th pair of Ingstads... 8-) I personally give it a different rating though... I rated them earlier in the Asnes thread as being 30/100 Cross-Country and 70/100 Downhill... After another season I would update my final rating...

Re: The Norpine Thread

A99s!!! Woah, I definitely need a pair... In a Europa world, it's exactly my kind of ski..! It's probably harder to find than Storetind Natos though... I can't even find a picture of these gems... There is no doubt that Norpine started on double camber XC skis, that was the idea. And that was the on...

Re: Boot Review: 2018 Crispi Svartisen BC

Oh man, that is quite sad... Where did you get them, T-Down? But hummm... I'm not sure about the source of your deception... It is very clearly stated on the Svartisen BC page: " Flex: SOFT "... A soft boot with cuff support. While on the other hand the Alaska BC is a ridiculously stiff boot... Not ...

Re: Rant: Rottefella NNN/Universal JIG piece of JUNK

Hey, that's the one I bought last summer... But I actually never used it as I finally found my old Voile one...

Sad to see it's a piece of crap... 3p jigs are getting very hard to find...!
