Asnes Sverdrup BC Wax

Current Stock:

Crafted with state-of-the-art technology, the Otto Sverdrup BC is one of the most versatile choices for the backcountry in our range – a ski with generous sidecut, tuned with more prominent camber and wax pocket than most of our other all-around BC skis.

The modern profile, with taper and a rockered tip, lifts it easily out of the snow. Compared to more traditionally-designed skis, it’s both easy to initiate in the turn and resistant to hooking. This is a playful ski, forgiving when conditions are demanding, and a pleasure even in difficult terrain.

Otto Sverdrup BC’s camber and prominent wax pocket make it an efficient ski suitable for slightly longer trips, especially in varying and hilly terrain – where its sidecut and forgiving tips let you make the most of those playful turns you might find on the way. All in all, a very good compromise for an all-around nordic BC ski. A modern twist on a good classic mountain ski, which will suit most mountain lovers!

If you want to get the most out of Åsnes’ short-skin system, we recommend using the right skin, either X-skin 45mm Mohair for cold conditions / moderate terrain, or X-skin 45mm Nylon for wet conditions / steep terrain.

Dimensions: 78-55-69.  Appropriate boots for this ski include NNNBC or 75MM.   A 200cm weighs in at 1070g./2lbs. 5.6 oz.
