Profile 2-5 – Novice through expert.
Ski it to believe it! Twin skins are the real deal. Twin Skins have spiked a resurgence in classic skiing.
These skis utilize strips of synthetic fabric embedded in the kick zone for excellent performance across the spectrum from dry to wet snow, icy/glazed or man-made snow. They are much faster in both wet, sticky snow and cold, abrasive snow than skis with “fish scales,” and because you are not using klisters or sticky kick waxes, your skis don’t pick up leaves and pine needles.
Skis: Twin Skin Superlite Skis are race constructed like their ultra-light race cousins, but are constructed for greater stability and sure-footedness - a huge plus when the grooming is not-so-good or in deeper snow. But, the big story is the skins - unlike traditional, 'fish-scale' waxless skis, the Superlite uses special hair strips for grip during the kick. The skins drag less for better glide and they grip in all conditions, even on icy and wet tracks. While these are not true race skis, we often recommend skis from the Superlite family for occasional racers or the casual Birkie skier. An excellent choice for any skier looking for good glide but a bit more stability than a race ski.
Boots: Fischer's XC Pro touring boots put warmth and comfort first where it matters most - your feet!
Bindings: All-new, Turnamic Touring Bindings offer easy, step-in entry and convenient pole-tip release. Turnamic Bindings feature tool-less fore and aft binding adjustment for fine-tuning ski grip, glide, and stability characteristics.
Poles: Light poles are not just for racers. Swix Quantum 6 composite poles deliver your power to the snow efficiently but are rugged enough for the occasional spill. Equipped with Pro-Fit Ergonomic straps to keep your hands relaxed and WARM!
