As the narrowest ski in Alpina's Discovery nordic backcountry series, the Discovery 68 Touring Ski blends the smooth-gliding on-trail capabilities of a narrow cross country ski with the off-track adventure capabilities of a backcountry model. With a 60mm width at the waist, the Discovery 68 is narrow enough to perform well on groomed trails while giving you the width necessary to get off the beaten path to explore. Unlike Alpina's other lines, the Discovery series utilizes steel edges, which provide stable security and grip in hard or variable snow conditions. The Discovery 68 features a poplar wood core for fluid and easy flex, which means you won't have to fight the ski to get maximum performance. An embossed waxless base allows the ski to glide freely on flats or downhill sections while still maintaining balanced control and easy forward motion on the uphills. A polyethylene topsheet adds a layer of tough durability for many years of use.
The Alpina Discovery is a great multi-Use backcountry ski designed for ungroomed terrain. Wide body, shorter design with steel edges has great flotation and carving ability. Non-wax Posi-grip base works great in all conditions and has great kick on the up hills.
It is the time to discover something new! No, this isn't about perfecting your Columbus impersonation, but rather a chance to explore the wilderness like never before. Grab your Alpina Discovery Cross Country Skis and head out into the great snow covered unknown. Alpina creates innovative cross country skis for all to enjoy. PRODUCT FEATURES: Shorter length for maneuverability Versatile width narrow enough for the trail, but wide enough for float Posi-Grip no-wax base for glide, grip, and downhill performance Full-length steel edges for grip Scuff-Tuff top skin resists sharp edges for durability Made from renewable resources for sustainability
