Daily Skier At Oberstdorf 2021: Madshus’ Green Sensation

Gear News, Newsfeed
Madshus has created an instant sensation when its highly regarded but hitherto internationally unknown skier raced to the podium in 15k F in Oberstdorf. Beating in the last 2k Bolshuhov himself! Striking feature of Harald Amundsen's gear? Green base of his Madshus Redline 3.0! [caption id="attachment_18021" align="alignnone" width="300"] Madshus is tight -lipped about their innovations and new materials. Let's say we at Dailyskier.com had no pre-warning something so efficient and visually striking is coming despite being in close contact with the Norwegian manufacturer [/caption][caption id="attachment_18022" align="alignnone" width="300"] The racing conditions in Oberstdorf 15k F: subzero Celsius at night but around 12 at the race start, overcast and, perhaps crucially, no salt used by the organizers to keep the tracks firm on that day[/caption][caption id="attachment_18019" align="alignnone" width="300"] Same uphill, one day…

Redster S9 Gen S: One Size Fits All From Altenmarkt

Redster S9 Gen S: One Size Fits All From Altenmarkt

Gear News, Newsfeed
Atomic Redster S9 Gen S are different, trust us. Right off the bat: if reading about "supreme stride efficiency" and "enhanced power transmission" is your thing in life - we'll direct you to the manufacturer's website , Atomic does a very good job of concocting good sounding and , no doubt ,scientifically supported things here We just give you a rather superficial impression with a bit of a practical twist: [caption id="attachment_17716" align="alignnone" width="1920"] - they are really one-size fits-all. Atomic brands them as 183 cm but in reality it's more like 175. Which means you won't have any trouble fitting it into your VW Golf[/caption] [caption id="attachment_17720" align="alignnone" width="1920"] - being so short they feel fit for all sorts of off-tracks exercises and are extremely nimble on downhills of…

One Day, One Way & Emil Iversen

[caption id="attachment_17656" align="alignnone" width="1646"] Everyone knows who Emil Iversen is. He doesn't really need personal race bib - his 100k+ followers on Instagram well aware of how he looks. So when Emil switched to One Way poles, the company got an exposure every company wants. Guess, that was the point ...[/caption] [caption id="attachment_17652" align="alignnone" width="1920"] 10 minutes before the start of Skiathlon in Lahti. Emil goes for a quick course recce or whatever you wanna call it...[/caption] [caption id="attachment_17653" align="alignnone" width="1578"] ...but hey, what are those bright red or orangy sticks he's using? Got to be the newest One Way poles hitherto unseen on the World Cup but now, clearly, ready to help Emil to kick some ass!...[/caption] [caption id="attachment_17654" align="alignnone" width="1516"] ...Skiathlon kicks off but Emil runs with ole…

New  ( Fancy) Poles In Town

New ( Fancy) Poles In Town

Gear News, Newsfeed
"...Johnny-come-lately The new kid in town Everybody loves you So don't let them down.." We are not entirely sure Don Henley was singing about Nordic ski poles - but he might as well, because it's rather fitting. Two established gear makers have overcome their lingering doubts and are putting on the market true-race ski poles this season. Bones Sport is a text-book story of a company that cut its teeth in mass-market segment and now steadiiy increases quality (and pricetag) of its offerings. Earlier this year the Spanish producer presented Graphene rollerskis - a fantastic piece of engineering with a jaw-dropping price tag (and very difficult to lay your hands on). With Ultron Bolskan the company from Huesca is making another claim to the slice of the premium, race market.…

Skiing Of Tomorrow: Indoor, With Wall Projection Panels Instead Of Dreary Looking Walls

Skiing Of Tomorrow: Indoor, With Wall Projection Panels Instead Of Dreary Looking Walls

Gear News, Newsfeed
We have two revelations to make: A - in the foreseeable future most of cross country skiing will move indoors. Yes, indoors - into those purpose-built ski tunnels. If you're optimistic enough to think otherwise - or lucky enough to live in certain areas in the mountains - our compliments. The rest of the humanity, spurred by the (correct) assumption that cross country skiing is the next-to-none cardiovascular and strength-building activity, will have to practice it indoors. B - skiing in tunnels as a way of receiving pleasure currently sucks. First ski tunnels were built far away from big cities but close to traditional training centers: Vuokatti, Torsby and Oberhof all fit that description. Practical? Check! Convenient? Depends on your idea of convenient, but generally no. No more. Toksovo is…
