Product Description

Åsnes Nansen Waxless Skis: Effortless Backcountry Exploration

The Nansen ski is great for active skiers who explore different terrains. It’s wide with good turn-in and flow properties, and has a full steel edge and moderate walking span. It’s ideal for challenging trips, especially in deep snow, and comes with an attachment for short skis to tackle tough terrains.

The skis with the grease-free pattern offer a good walking range, and their self-developed “shell pattern” is effective in several snow conditions. These lubrication-free skis provide a good grip, support, and usability in normal winter conditions, making them suitable for many skiers.

The Waxless skis have an integrated trap leg, which allows for the use of the X-Skin short trap with the grease-free sole. This is a convenient and dependable combination, especially for individuals who prefer not to deal with lubrication and glue.

Fritjof Nansen was a remarkable person who lived from 1861 to 1930. He was a polar explorer, scientist, diplomat, international humanist, and celebrity. He is known for skiing across Greenland in 1888, which was the first recorded crossing of the area. Nansen’s observations aboard the polar ship “Fram” improved our understanding of the Arctic Ocean. He received numerous research awards for his scientific contributions. In 1922, Nansen won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in promoting peace and humanitarian work.

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.
