Looking for the perfect gifts for the avid skiers and future champions on your list? We’ve got you covered: Enter the Race Pro/Race Speed line.
From the top-of-the-line Race Pro/Race Speed ski models to the race-ready-worthy Race Speed boots and the feather light Carbon Race 100 ski poles, you’ve got gear based on the same construction and geometries as the World Cup-level models, with many of the same materials, features and performance – real-life tried and tested.
“While the World Cup-level Redline racing skis will be marginally lighter and somewhat livelier, they also requires rock solid technique in order to get reliable grip for classic and the most from each push-off in skating. Race-oriented skis such as the Madshus Race Pro and Race Speed that’s one or two steps down the ladder will deliver most of the same properties and performance, but come with a softer flex and mellower camber. These slight adjustments make it easier to get reliable grip and maximize glide and power, while still enjoying the benefits from World Cup-level design and engineering,” says Petter Soleng Skinstad of Team Madshus, who has more than 15 years experience both as an elite skier at the national level and a marathon racer.
