Madshus – Progressive in Many Ways

Madshus being the OLDEST ski brand in the market today (1906) may not be the biggest but they are one of the most progressive…..

  1. Supporting Women in Sport! Team Out There athlete & Women’s Nordic Combined Pioneer Tara Geraghty-Moats has recently signed with Madshus. Growing up she skied on Madshus and always loved the products. Heading into the 2019-20 Season we spoke with Madshus and they came back to Tara with a great opportunity and excited to see where she and the sport of Women’s Nordic Combined is headed, in the USA & the world. They maybe the Oldest Ski Brand but they as their Norwegian Heritage and progressive in equal thinking.
  2. Ski Technology. When Madshus debuted the Redline ski it was a shift in the feel of a ski on the snow. They have continued to revolutionize this with the launch last season to select retailers (we were one) of the NEW Redline 2.0. Or as we like to say 2.ohhhhhhhhhhhh . They are AMAZING.

Tara crushes the first of the Summer Grand Prix!

This past weekend was the first event of the Women’s Nordic Combined Summer Grand Prix and our own Team Out There athlete Tara Geraghty-Moats was coming into the weekend a heavy favorite after a fantastic 2018/19 Nordic Combined Season. With the PCR Jumps for qualifying happening on Friday Tara lead out the group in first with some great flight. Sunday was the day of competition and due to wind the Jumping was cancelled and the PRC Jumps were used to seed the 5km Freestyle ski portion of the event. Tara took out right from the start and controlled the pace for the entire 5km. Now the Ladies are off to Klingenthal Germany for another day of competition.

Madshus News- For any of you noticing Tara is a recent addition to the Madshus Family. Keep an eye out for future updates!
