Thule Ascent 1100
This box is long enough for the xc skis or any other the gear that won’t fit in the car. It mounts quickly and opens on both sides so you don’t have to walk around to get your boards out.
Fischer Carbonlite Skate NNN Boot
If you can’t ski in the World Cup, you might as well ski on the same boot used by World Cup skiers. Fischer’s Carbonlite Skate boost are becoming one of the most popular options on the market.
This state-of-the-art skating boot platform has been upgraded from the well known and respected Hyper SKC to the all-new soft shell constructions. This boot is exceptionally lightweight with high torsional stiffness and now 100% breathable and water resistant.

Madshus Nanosonic Carbon NIS 186 Skate Ski
Madshus is proud to offer the Nanosonic 186 Skate Ski this 2009/2010 season! This ski is designated to address World Cup conditions, and is suited for top racers or any racer with solid technique. The 186 is a marriage of the very popular sidecut profile of the Madhsus Soft Condition skate ski, and a stiffer shovel.
This ski has been available to World Cup skiers for several years now, and has the potential to be the best Madshus skate ski available.
Rossignol X-ium Skating WCS NIS Skis
New for the Olympic year, the Rossignol X-ium Skating WCS NIS Ski has thicker wood side walls, full carbon deck all the way to the tip, and offers better torsion box and greater edging than the X-Ium NIS2 Skate Skis. And they are orange!
Fischer RCS Carbonlite Hole Plus Skate Skis
Fischer’s most technologically advanced skate ski just got a little more exciting. The all new Fischer RCS Carbonlite Hole Plus Skate Skis are the latest technology from the Austrian Fischer Factory. It’s all about swing weight with the hole ski. With less material in the tip you exert far less energy there by creating much great efficiency. Each pair is still perfectly matched using Fischer’s CFC system.
In general, the Carbonlites’ reduction in weight is accomplished with an internal construction called Air Core Carbonlite. The use of T300 1K Carbon Fiber in the tip and tail improved ski swing weight significantly. The Carbonlites are pre-waxed to prevent base oxidation and to make the skis faster out of the box. Diamond Tuning lays in the proper structure for each base type.
The Concept2 SkiErg
MSRP for the PM3 (wall-mounted version): $730 plus shipping, optional floor stand: $200 plus shipping.
Concept2 is excited to offer Nordic skiers a new way to train without snow: the Concept2 SkiErg. Similar to the Concept2 Indoor Rower, the SkiErg is designed to help athletes build strength and endurance in a sport-specific motion. Although no machine can duplicate all the subtleties of Nordic skiing, the SkiErg enables you to train using the motion that is essential to all techniques of skate and classic skiing. It’s a convenient and safe alternative to roller-skiing, a nice option when the weather is bad or you’re short on time.
The SkiErg, within months of release, has become very popular with college teams, clubs and ski schools, as well as elite athletes. Ideal for testing and supplementary training, the SkiErg is the first really useful indoor ski simulator.
