Re: Recommend an NNN-BC boot for deformed heels

I am currently squeezing a pair of Stetinds on the leathery arse. The heel is rigid. It's theoretically possible there's a curve of plastic in between the layers of leather. Theoretically. Inside the boots there's some give. Kind of spongy. They do look as if you could take them to a decent shoemake...

Re: Åsnes Mountain Race Skin Sizing

Someone tell ASNES to not screw this up, it would be like getting rid of the Green Man graphic and putting some hobbit thing on it instead and using teal or other weird non-explorish colors. As if this winter wasn't bad enough Ha ha ha, yes, yes indeed, Woods, ha ha! Oh my god. A bold explorish blo...

Re: Åsnes Mountain Race Skin Sizing

I squished them, very much with a load, and this made for a lot of drag. I actually had a green pair and a yellow pair. The same applies for the green ones, if you plan on using X-Skins with the green ones. Just to clarify (forgive me replying to myself but it's kind of relevant so I'm bumping the ...

Re: Åsnes Mountain Race Skin Sizing

Hey there Lurk-People, I try to get myself a pair of Åsnes Mountain Race Skis if I find a good end of season discount somewhere. I am 1.80 m and 75 Kg (naked) - which size would you get? Asnes says 1.90m what do you say? I will use the Ski at the Swiss Jura Mountainrange where there is a combinatio...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

Related to X-skins in general, has anyone tried trimming it lengthwise on the heal-end to improve glide without sacrificing grip? Kind of like shortening the kick wax area to improve glide? Oh yes, all my skins have had the snip. We also have uncircumcised ones in the house for when that's necessar...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

It's a reasonable point, especially for skis that come in increments of 10cm like these. The thing is, as many here can attest, sizing up is often a rational choice: it's all about compromise. I can't say if that 10kg under the recommended size will impact your ability to squash these skis adequate...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

Oh my God, I can't ask her that. She's around the 70kg mark, I'm going to say. I'll try and subtly get a more accurate metric (wish me luck.) My estimate was pretty much bang on. The 190s are good for her. I think, looking at your weight, the 180s would be a reasonable choice... but the 190s would ...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

It will be muskox sausage for dinner this easter. Start rubbing on the juniper berries. https://www.lokalmat.no/no/produsenter/hognamat-as/moskuspoelse-med-einerbaer I was wondering where that smell of juniper was coming from. I’m actually named for this animal largely because muskox is delicious. ...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

I think @Musk Ox mentioned that his wife uses the 190cm so I’d be curious how much Mrs. Musk Ox weighs which puts her in an ideal range for the 190cm MR48 skin. Oh my God, I can't ask her that. She's around the 70kg mark, I'm going to say. I'll try and subtly get a more accurate metric (wish me luc...
