Summary

These were great for me as a beginner.

Pros

  • Affordable
  • Somewhat versatile
  • Stability

Cons

  • Deep powder
  • Turning
  • Uneven icy snow

They are not too expensive, and are of decent quality. I only used them off track in parks, golf courses, and un-plowed streets and sidewalks. They perform well on shallow or well-packed snow, but they sink too much in deep powder. They turn okay when you pick up your feet, but you are not going to get hardly any turn just by leaning.

Now that I have discovered the strengths and limitations of these skis, I recently ordered some new metal-edge skis, which are also wider and should be better for more snow conditions and the woods.

Summary

I use these skis for non-groomed trails and they work pretty well. They stay slick in all temperatures.

Pros

  • Work well in all types of snow
  • Great width
  • Pre-mounted bindings
  • Great value

Cons

  • They seem a little short, I'm tall.

This is my first pair of cross-country skis. They are a great starter set, especially with the pre-mounted bindings. I took them out of box and was on the trail in less than an hour of their delivery! They are very light snd easy to carry.

I purchased the 184 cm. I am 72" so they seem just a bit short for me, but maybe I'm just getting use to Nordic style after skiing alpine my whole life. My 77" husband took them out and he thought they were great. I would recommend these skis for beginner to intermediate.
