Reviews

Åsnes

Åsnes is a renowned Norwegian brand that has a history of producing high-quality skis for touring and mountaineering for over 100 years. The brand was established by the Åsnes family in 1922, and in 1933, they built their first factory.

The company expanded over the years and experienced significant success, manufacturing over 137,000 pairs of skis in 1977. However, the beginning of the 1980s was a challenging time, and in 1998 the company declared bankruptcy. This led to the establishment of a new company called Åsnes Ski AS. Currently, Åsnes Ski AS is a subsidiary of Active Brands AS, which continues to operate the brand.

Today, Åsnes is a world leader in the production of backcountry nordic skis, also known in Norway as “fjellski,” and is the preferred choice for skis among polar expeditions worldwide. Additionally, the brand is a distributor of trap brands such as Colltex and Pomoca. Åsnes is famous for its alpine and cross-country skis, touring poles, and patented trap lock introduced in 2003.

Apart from skis, Åsnes also produces other ski-related equipment such as bindings, poles, and skins. The company has a strong focus on sustainability and uses environmentally friendly materials and production methods wherever possible.

Åsnes has a long history of supplying the Norwegian military with skis, and the brand is also popular among international expeditions and adventure skiers. Despite the production being moved out of Norway, Åsnes still designs and constructs its skis in Voss, Norway, and continues to be a market leader in mountain skiing and leading other developments in the category.

What are the differences between Colltex BC Skin Nylon and Colltex BC Skin Mohair?

Colltex BC Skin Nylon and Colltex BC Skin Mohair are both types of ski skins produced by Colltex, but they have some key differences:

  1. Material: The main difference between the two is the material they're made of. Colltex BC Skin Nylon is made of 100% nylon, while Colltex BC Skin Mohair is made of 100% mohair.
  2. Wear resistance: Nylon traps are more wear-resistant and durable than mohair traps. They're suitable for longer trips and more demanding conditions, including wet and heavy snow that is coarse-grained.
  3. Glide and attachment: Mohair traps provide better glide and attachment compared to nylon traps. They have less friction, which makes them glide better, and they attach more securely to the ski base.
  4. Width: Colltex BC Skin Nylon is available in a 45mm width and fits mountain skis with a center width of 47-58mm, while Colltex BC Skin Mohair is available in two widths: 45mm for narrow touring skis and 58mm for wider mountain skis with a center width of over 60mm.
  5. Maintenance: Both types of traps require regular maintenance, but mohair traps are more sensitive and require more attention to maintain their properties.

Overall, the choice between Colltex BC Skin Nylon and Colltex BC Skin Mohair depends on your skiing style and the conditions you'll be skiing in. If you're looking for durability and wear resistance, go for nylon traps. If you want better glide and attachment, mohair traps are the way to go.
