The Newest from Madshus!

We are pleased to announce that we will be the ONLY Brick & Mortar Nordic Retailer in the US market stocking two NEW items from Madshus for the 16/17 Winter Season!

First: Madshus Super NANO Classic Boot

The Super Nano Classic Ski Boot is one of the first classic ski boots to use an integrated carbon base specifically engineered for classic ski performance. The Super Nano Classic Boot delivers flex and spring that maximize kick while simultaneously providing torsional rigidity needed for top race performance and control. This boot’s one-piece Integrated Carbon base wraps through the boot’s arch and around the heel, coming together with our RevoWrap™ upper for a seamless fit all around.

Pair the Super Nano Classic with our Redline Carbon Classic Ski and you’ll have the ingredients you need for groundbreaking, World Cup performance.

Second : Madshus Propulsion Double Pole Ski

No Kick wax on these Classic Skis. The Madshus design Team has created a Classic Double Poling ski with the Ultimate in performance for distance racing. 3D Geometry & Fast Acceleration Camber was developed to increase the speed of the ski on the flat & UPHILL. This is done through specific pressure distribution throughout the entire ski!

This Ski dominated Podiums  last season in the Swedish Vasaloppet & the Nordenskiöldsloppet (220km)

These skis will not be available officially to the masses until 2017/18. Select Nordic retailers were offered them for this upcoming season. PRE-Ordered only! We will be the ONLY Brick & Mortar Nordic Retailer stocking them in the US market! Over 65% of our incoming stock is SOLD! 9.14.16

Classic ~ It still makes you Better!

Even after about 10,000 yrs of folks Nordic skiing in the “Traditional” or Classic style there are still folks out there that seem to want to disregard this technique. When we look at how the top elite skiers in the world train the answer for 30 yrs has been ” At least 60% Classic” Even this past weekend at the “Out There with Adam Loomis” event someone asked Adam if he ever classic skis ( as Nordic Combined utilizes the skate / freestyle technique) his reply was ” Yes we spend about 60% of our time classic skiing”. Kris & I both being big Classic skiers as well as CXC/USSA certified coaches see the benefits of classic skiing to all skiers. This technique really holds the fundamentals of the sport. From single leg balance to the double pole. One large component of classic skiing though is “Ski Fit”. If you are unable to collapse the pocket or the pocket has to much drag you will not enjoy this technique. With a vast selection of recreational to race ski options there is a GREAT Classic Ski Out There for you! Bring in your current skis and lets look at the fit and see with your goals in mind what can be done with your current skis or what is available in New equipment. We also still offer FULL kick service for the Am. Birkie & other events as well.
