Has Madshus updated any of their backcountry Nordic touring skis- other than names and or topsheets?
I have put some miles on the blue Glitt- the previous model to current. I wasn't aware that they had changed the flex/camber of the current model?
What I can say is the recent blue Glit is most definitely a double-cambered xcountry ski. It is VERY stiff underfoot for a backcountry ski (MUCH stiffer than the E-99 for example). Gamme the Elder's test suggests it is every bit as stiff underfoot as the Asnes Amundsen!!!https://www.utemagasinet.no/Test/TEST-Ski-for-fjellet
If I take Steve Barnett's word for it- in his book "Cross Country-Downhill"- the blue Glitt has a completely different flex/camber than the one Barnett was describing. The flex of the Glitt that Barnett describes sounds more like the smooth even round flex of the current Asnes Nansen, than it does the current Glitt.
The tip of the blue Glitt is incredibly soft and feels disconnected from its extremely stiff double camber underfoot. To be honest, I don't really understand the flex pattern of the blue Glitt- I MUCH prefer the flex of the current E99 (I tested both before I decided).
IMO- the current Glitt is a XC ski and should be had in a length that takes advantage of its double camber for XC-focused BC skiing.
If one wants a narrow Nordic ski for downhill skiing- then I would be looking at a different ski with a smoother, rounder flex. The only ski that comes to mind immediately is the Nansen- perhaps Alpina's Discovery series?
I would get the Glitt in a XC length for your weight.
