interesting, sounds like the Glittertind is like a wider E89 rather than the E99. Nothing wrong with that, I would enjoy a little more pop in the kick & glide action. Will float you a little more in loose snow than the narrower ones.

It's nothing of the sort. But these skis have varied so much in camber and stiffness over the years it's tough to compare.

The the blue Glittertind was simply a semi-stiff camber underfoot with extremely soft tips and tails. Most E99s I've handled had a much more even camber and flex. Most E89s I've handled are stiff and heavily cambered.

Well I'm glad we cleared that up!
