The Nansen is the perfect backcountry ski for active skiers in varying terrain.
Agile and easy to turn, this is a ski built for the winter trek: wide, with a generous sidecut, and excellent floating properties.
Its steel edge and moderate pocket mark it out for challenging winter excursions even in deep, heavy snow.
Nansen Waxless skis are equipped with Skinlock, ready for an X-Skin (short skin) to be instantly locked in place for climbing, and a waxless pattern in the grip zone providing excellent grip, regardless of condition and without time spent waxing.
Fritjof Nansen (1861–1930) was a polar explorer, scientist, diplomat and humanist. His expedition of 1888, made on skis, was the first documented crossing of Greenland. Aboard his ship ‘Fram’, he made important observations increasing our understanding of the Arctic Ocean. The winner of many awards for scientific research, he was awarded the 1922 Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian and contribution to peace.
