Re: Ski Length Dilemma

Hey Musk Ox- I weigh 80kg without a pack. I have the Gamme 54 BC in 210cm and would not want them shorter- be it deep soft snow or dense consolidated snow. I do not have any difficulty compressing the camber, getting grip- when kick and glide skiing and when climbing steep slopes. As far as pressuri...

Re: FT 62

Crister from Åsnes ;) . So this an excerpt from his detailed post on the FT62 that can be found on the Asnes thread : in short words, the Falketind 62 is made to be a really playful and easy to handle Nordic BC ski. At the same time, it has a lot of the same technical details as an Alpine Touring s...

Re: FT 62

I have both the first-gen FT62 (red&white) and the current (green&white)- both in 188cm. The camber-flex profile between the two models is identical. The weight and balance points are identical as well. The only difference I can find is the upturned "twin-tip" tail is much toned down on the current ...

Re: Ski to fill the Gap

@bgregoire All good man- he asked me before he posted my private message- I speak to it in my reponse to him asking my opinion about the 195 vs 205 Ingstad.

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

I have no experience withe MR48- nor the MT 51-\ I do some limited experience with the E89 Xtraltite- and it is much stiffer and more cambered than the E99 Xtralite. I wonder what the "big" difference is between the MR48 /MT51/Gamme 54... Stephen- The difference between this myriad of BC Nordic tour...

Re: hemiboreal forest skiing in New Brunswick Canada

So- perhaps I am too enthusiastic!
Woods is probably more realistic...
A 220cm Gamme 54 is probably too much underfoot for me...
It is stiff.
But the 210cm is a dream.
175-200lb (with pack) BC-XCd dream in all imaginable snow.

Re: Newbie looking for wide fit NNNBC Boots?

Thanks. Just to be clear - I absolutely do NOT want a wax ski. Would the e109 with quick skins work? Can you ski with the quick skins on all the time if the terrain is really lumpy?? If you are XC skiing you do not need a "E109-type" ski- A ski like the E019 is designed for hill country. Currently ...
