Re: FrankNski setup for backcountry

Even a great skate boot won't drive a wide ski like a Sbound 125. I've used a Carbonlite Pursuit (Combi) on a 68mm tip ski no problem. It's a lighter and better fitting setup than a NNN BC. You may be able to get away with a 78mm tip ski. Maybe E89 with a NNN skate binding. If you've never classic s...

Re: Add to my quiver?

I would echo what is said above. Your coach should be able to help answer what conditions your current skis excel at and where the gaps are. Zeros are very much a specialty ski and are good when the conditions are right, usually freshly fall snow right at or slightly above freezing. Skin skis are ge...

Re: Norway outlaws fluoride products from junior competition (<16 yr olds)

I believe it's a good policy and eliminates potential conflict on some teams. Some teams may have enough Flouride wax but not enough for the whole team. Does the n...

Re: Any good combi ski?

A Combi ski will be skiable but it won't be a good skate ski nor a good classic ski. As mentioned above Fischer does sell the SC Combi, their lowest end construction. How many variations of Skate and Classic does Fischer sell? A lot, 7 in the US, more in EU. If Combi was a solid solution they would ...
