Madshus Birkebeiner Skis
Longtime skiers will remember Madshus’s beautiful light-blondwood Birkebeiner skis from the 1970s. When the ski was revamped in the 1980s, a waxable fibreglass version with a light sidecut and a fast racing base was offered. Now, several decades later, its updated version is a skin ski. At 47-44-45mm, this new ski features pure race-performance DNA, with greater width and more shape in its sidecut. The new Birkebeiner Intelligrip skin ski has a 70% mohair and 30% nylon skin, which offers the perfect combination of grip, glide and durability. Lightweight skis at 1,175g/190m, with a touch more stability, they are perfect for touring or training. The slightly higher camber height at half-weight compression delivers better glide, but does require a more active kick. Now with Rottefella’s new MOVE system, that allows you to move the binding on the fly, the Birkebeiner can adapt to any skiing style, terrain and snow conditions.
