I already asked them... I'd love to... But we don't even know if they will be available in NA...

Hey, I just posted my first impressions on the new Ingstads in the review section... 8-)

I am beginning to think very seriously about the Tind as my new steep and deep yo-yo ski...

I am realizing that I would prefer the smooth, waxable base with the kicker skin, then the waxless scales of the Objective BC...

Both for the backcountry and my occasional tours of my local lift serve...

>>>My 210cm Combat Natos do flatten out if I evenly weight them- but that resistance is still there in that second camber delivering a decent kick and release. However, there is fair little bit of variability between individual Asnes skis- or so I have been told by the Canadian dealer. Perhaps my Combat Natos have a slightly softer flex than yours?

I doubt it! I'm not as thorough as you, I"m probably thinking of the Gamme's or something.

The E99 & E109 might be available in the US, but you're into "special order" territory, paying full retail, it's only a little more in shipping costs to order Asnes at that point.

I thought the integrated skins thing would just pass, just like old kicker skins went out of fashion...

But they are sort of growers right..? The more you use them, the more you love them...! 8-)

They fixed the problem of snow going under the clamps, that was the only problem with kicker skins IMO
