The MADSHUS Propulsion is the ski that is changing the face of Distance Classic Marathons.
In the past decade the Double Poling technique in Classic has had a gigantic evolution in distance & sprint races around the world. So much to the point that MADSHUS has developed a Classic ski just for that technique. The Propulsion has an entirely different flex than other traditional classic skis.
HERE’S HOW While double poling, the skier’s weight is evenly divided between the two skis – both in the power and the gliding phases. This is different from skating or classic skiing. Focusing on this, the ski does not need to be engineered with a wax pocket camber or to hold the full body weight when skating. Instead we can design the ski with one thing in mind: gliding efficiency. Without having to worry about the dynamic movement of skating or the wax pocket of classic skiing, we engineered the Propulsion ski with even distribution of pressure points throughout the whole ski and a compliant but stiff camber profile which work together to provide more powerful accelerations, better glide and higher top speed.
This season we were the ONLY Brick & Mortar retailer to bring these skis to the US Market. We have been shipping them from Alaska to Quebec! We have a limited number of pairs left available along with the Madshus Super Nano Classic & Skate Boots!
