Madshus- Even Better

Madshus- Changing the game again!

US Ski Team Athlete Hailey Swirbul sums it up in a recent message from her

“I’ve got my new fleet! I have been testing on the glacier and am absolutely loving them”

 

 

The Red Line 2.0s will have totally redesigned geometry and side cuts – especially the skating version 2.0 where geometry changes the company describes as “revolutionary”.

RL 2.0 will have totally new base material. No, there still will be old good Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWP) more commonly ( if wrongly) called P-Tex. The properties of the new base, however, will be very different to what we all are used to, Madshus says .

Perhaps, more significantly, for the first time in many years ( and please correct us if we are wrong here) any ski manufacturer would use for its top model UHMWP not supplied by storied Austrian Isosport!

Per Wiik, Madshus marketing & racing department boss says “We looking into very limited quantity introduction for loyal dealers with racing focus for late fall 2018” Translation: if you are one of those people who absolutely must have the latest & best, start schmoozing your local dealer already now!

The rest of the folk would see the RedLine 2.0 in the fall of 2019.
