I think that I found another European Asnes supplier that will ship to Canada/US:
http://www.outdoorbergen.no/

Prices are good- depending on shipping:
Asnes Ingstad + NNNBC-Magnum:
1) OutdoorBergen: $3499Kronos ($570CAN)
2) SportAlbert: $435.96Euros ($684CAN)
3) Norseman: $900CAN
4) LaCordee: $590CAN

Hi Gareth

Sorry for late reply, but his one came in our spam mail L

Anyway, Yes, I think we can ship to Canada but I don`t know anything about costs….

If You tell me which skis/equipment You want, I can try to check the costs.

nice, I always like to save a kronos or two when possible! :lol: I don't like the forced-NNN BC bindings though - looks like they don't start using Super Tele until you get to Falktind. Maybe you can request Super Tele on the other ones.

They will mount whichever binding you want- with an adjusted price.

The Falketind 68 is receiving yet another redesign- it will become the "Rabb 68".
Hi again Gareth

The Falketind 68 is totally sold out.

A new version of this will arrive in October, and it will be named Rabb 68. It is exactly the same ski, but with another name and design.

AWESOME! Thanks for the info G!

80F and still skiing (naked) everyday here in QC... But already super-excited about 2018-2019...!

I've been sleeping outside in a tent for a week... Maybe the high altitude air messed up my brain... Am I dreaming or what?

Only 5 months left until the new models hit the streets... If we Asnes Collectors save only 114$ every week until then, we will have enough money to buy them all in the fall...

So the two waxless models are the first and only waxless skis in their lineup? Those wide skis look real nice too.

You've got me beat Johnny, my wife has gotten mad at me for skiing too much also, but I never had to sleep in a tent. :lol:

They already make the Amundsen in waxless flavor for the Swedish market only. They tried to sell them in the US before but distributors didn't want them... :(

According to Asnes, The Breidablikk waxless will be possible to purchase this year, We will most likely not produce the waxless Ingstad. (That is, unless we show them that we really want it I guess...! ;) )

Great to hear that Asnes is still going strong!

I must admit I prefer the graphics/colours of the previous models...

I wonder if they are going to keep making the FT62? That would likely be my next purchase- with NNNBC on deck.

Also want to try the edgeless Kongsvold...

And- of course, the new Ingstad!

Not interested in the waxless models- got that covered!

Funny you mention the FT 62, you have me thing about an FT 68! The FT 62 does not have near as much camber as your Storetind. I am not sure it would be up to your standard in XC performance. However it is such a different ski on soft snow, it just seems to come alive in just 3 or 4 inches of snow. Maybe Johnny will give us the long awaited for review of the Ingstad soon!
I am also curious about the two Tind skis. It sure would be nice to get some good reviews of all these skis.We have reviews for the winter just past on the FT 62, and Storetind (FT 68), some good initial Ingstad reviews, good review of the Combat NATO, a nice review of Cecelie. Maybe the folks at Asnes will send us some bigger skis, and we can become the North AmericN review team. I like the idea anyway ;)

This is interesting..The FT62 is a very unique ski in the current market- the camber/rocker/flex profile of a backcountry downhill touring ski- but with width dimensions and weight that would make them very easy to drive with XC boots...Very interesting- would love to try it!

I keep wondering whether I shouldn't have tried my ST with NNNBC before I mounted the 3-pin hardwire binding. The ST is VERY light- as light as Johnny's Objective mounted to NNNBC...

I am also curious about the two Tind skis.

I am too- what is the difference in performance between the 68/76/86? Obviously the 86 would offer more float than the 68- but if you want a powder ski, why wouldn't you go even wider? PLUS- I am sure all of these skis have different camber/rocker profiles- intended for different snow conditions.

The 68 is intended to be a hybrid between a BC-XC ski and an "AT" ski- what about the 76/86?

It sure would be nice to get some good reviews of all these skis.

I am quite confident that they have been thoroughly tested and reviewed by UTE magazine, but you need to pay a fairly expensive subscription to get full access to the UTE site.

We have reviews for the winter just past on the FT 62, and Storetind (FT 68), some good initial Ingstad reviews, good review of the Combat NATO, a nice review of Cecelie. Maybe the folks at Asnes will send us some bigger skis, and we can become the North AmericN review team. I like the idea anyway ;)

Now your talking- where do I sign on?
