Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48

Temps were predicted to be in the single digits at the start(which was wrong), and to return to single digits at night(which was correct). I figured I would be starting with the blue, adding red as it warmed up, then getting back to blue conditions as the red wore off, or, worst case, having to scra...

Re: What would you change about NNN-BC?

I don't think I've ever paid more than $65 for NNNBC magnums. If they're retailing for $100 a pair, maybe now is the time to ebay the 3 or 4 I have laying around the garage.

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48

wow, great report, 100 miles ski race, that's crazy. 22 is impressive, the most I've ever skied is 18 miles. So the temps were near freezing? Which grip wax were you using, red? did you consider using the mohair skins? The ski review is pushing me even more to a set of MR 51's....I'm liquidating a ...

Re: What would you change about NNN-BC?

Making it open would drastically reduce, if not eliminate the tendency to ice up in certain conditions. If it's going to be open, making it stouter and removing the slop makes sense.

Re: What would you change about NNN-BC?

I'm not really sure I get where you are going here... There is no play in mine when the lever is closed on the manual bindings. It's a zero lash mechanism, so if you have slop when it's closed, something must be broken. When closed there's no slop because it's under tension. The splay in the mechan...

Re: What would you change about NNN-BC?

I think the biggest improvements would be making the linkage open and remove the play from it. The spring loaded aluminum of Dynafit's mechanism could be applied to the nnnbc mechanism to make it stouter(less flex, not necessarily stronger) and more ice proof without killing it's ability to deflect ...

Re: Waxless ski wax

Swix F4 has worked well for me. I buff it in really well with the felt pad though. I have these tiny, red two finger nylon brushes that we use to clean it out of the fishscales. I get them at the local supermarket, but have seen them at ski shops for twice the price.

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48

Keep us posted! When is the start? Start easy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Race: That didn't go quite like I hoped it would. I can show up on a bike to a hundred miler with minimal to no training and fake it enough to finish in a reasonable time. Turns out that's a lot harder to do on skis. ...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48

Awesome ski. Thanks for taking the time to report on it for us. Sounds like the perfect kit for your long-distance pursuits in the backcountry. Going to read your report on the Gamme 54 for comparison! I'm excited to get more time on both this and the Gamme. The 12 mm of sidecut and soft flexing ti...
