Far away from the groomed track and light years from the ski lifts lies a smorgasbord of backcountry skiing, available for your exploring pleasure with the Madshus Eon Ski. Combining the metal edges and deeper sidecut of a downhill cross-country ski with the lightweight wood core and waxless grip of a touring ski, the Eon bridges the gap between uphill performance and downhill comfort. An OmniTrak base grips slippery terrain and handles moderate downhills with ease, thanks to a grip pattern with sharp, tightly-arranged scales underfoot and softer, rounder scales towards the glide zones. You can mount the Eon with NNN, or classic 3-pin, or even telemark bindings, depending on how you intend to ski, and point this carefully-crafted cruiser towards the trees and stride off into uncharted territories.
A classic Nordic backwoods ski, the Madshus Eon is the embodiment of efficiency and versatility in the back country.
