Get off the trail when the soft powder looks too good to tour over with the Madshus Eon, a nordic ski that can cut a turn on easy slopes. The extruded, positive Omnitrak base is super durable and really takes a bite out of steep terrain. Added camber makes your glide more efficient than most hybrid skis.

Sprung from the same mold as the Karhu XCD-GT, but with improved base finishing, this is the ski to spring you into exploring snow covered wild lands. The Madshus Eon backcountry skis mix a alpine ski turnability with reliable no-wax kick and glide. This is the ski that, decades ago, started the Cross-Country Downhill (XCD) trend. Wood core/ Torsion cap construction MGV Omni positive grip pattern base is a proven design for varied snow conditions Note: most users find that when in-between sizes, best results are to size down.
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.
Enjoy a relaxed, smooth ride on rolling terrain with the Madshus Eon cross-country skis. They bridge the gap between cross-country and downhill skis for efficient off-trail travel. Durable cores feature laminated stringers of wood and a double camber tuned for quick off-trail skiing. Triaxial braiding weaves fiberglass around the cores to produce excellent torsional rigidity and to increase strength. Omnitrak(R) waxless bases have closely spaced round scales underfoot and widely spaced scales in the transition zones for a combination of efficient glide and good grip. 62mm waists and 83mm tips help you stay on top of fresh snow and provide enough sidecut for turning on rolling terrain. Madshus Eon cross-country skis have full metal edges to help you carve turns on hardpack snow and icy slopes. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo.
A classic Nordic backwoods ski, the Madshus Eon is the embodiment of efficiency and versatility in the back country.
