Re: WAX HELP, PLS!!

OK, if we're talking simple 'basic essentials' kits, Swix Blue Extra, Violet Spesh, Red Silver, two scrapers, a cork, some environmentally unsound base cleaner and some fine FiberTex pads would be in mine. Special mention for Polar. I also use Blue once or twice. They'd probably all go in my desert ...

Re: WAX HELP, PLS!!

I suspect Musk Ox, a circumpolar mammal, probably knows a thing or two about skis and wax. I don't claim to know more than him. Basically everything I know I learned either here or from my ex-landlady who's in her 70s and goes up proper mountains on a pair of E99s! Yes there's no doubt that grip wa...

Re: WAX HELP, PLS!!

The first rule of Wax Club is 'Don't overthink it'. The second rule of Wax Club is 'Knock yourself out, literally dork yourself to death, smear the balls of your feet in pasteurised Swix and get a PhD in the hydroresistant properties of paraffined stearates in a conditions of contact-friction melt o...

Re: Musk Ox

In a way I'm glad this footage is out there, honestly. I want to apologise to everyone I've saddened, angered, or headbutted like a rutting beast over the last few years. I'm getting the help I needed now, and with the support of Mrs Ox I'm going to make it through this, repay my debts, moral, finan...

Re: XC BC ski suggestions for intermediate skiier?

Hi johnnycanuck ! Åsnes-wise, both of those sound like what you're after. The Nansens are really ridiculously easy to get about on, and can get you to some surprisingly hair-raising places. And down again. They're really good fun. The Gamme 54s are better on the flats, and better in deeper snow, but...

Re: Uh oh. Norrøna skis.

Well, I knew I'd seen Norrona hardgoods, just had to jar the memory. Norrona did make/sell XC boots and shoes in the distant past... I think I'll keep searching but there were probably bindings as well. Norröna is not the same brand as Norrøna. Logo is different, font is different, spelling is diff...

Re: Uh oh. Norrøna skis.

Some information has leaked. The skis are being made "in partnership with" (ie made by) EVI skis in Norway. Some figures: Norrøna Lyngen: Lightweight touring ski Lengths: 165, 170, 175, 180, 185 and 190 cm Measures: 126-96-115 Weight: 1200 gram Norrøna Lofoten: Lightweight freeride ski Lengths: 167...

Re: Asnes Ingstad users question

Also, one guy from ski services told me to do not use kick wax or klayster at backcountry or together with skins. He told me that kick wax or klayster would attach a lot of dirt, tree needles etc., and it can also damage the glue side of the skins. Do you have any experience of using both kick wax ...

Re: First Nørrona skis, now this!

Probably won't be SO expensive (I mean, not, like, Norrøna's 5000 NOK for a basic hiking jacket).

Åsnes have good form on nice knitwear!
