Madshus Glittertind MGV
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
A classic backcountry touring ski, the lightweight Madshus Glittertind offers sturdy, all-round performance particularly well-suited for off-trail and powder snow skiing. A wider tip shape breaks trail easily off groomed snow, while the full length steel edge lets you ski confidently when conditions firm up.
Long time nordic backcountry skiers have a lot to appreciate with the Madshus Glittertind ski. Like most modern BC skis, it is much wider than skis of the past. What makes this beauty different than other wide touring skis, is the retention of near-classic ski length. Why? Ask any long time nordic backcountry skier, and the answer is - glide. Norwegian ski making know-how keeps the Glittertind tough but surprisingly light in weight. Triaxial Cap surrounds a laminated wood core to balance stiff torsional flex with a supple longitudinal flex. Full length steel edge MGV+ gripping base is finely tuned to optimize pattern to the pressure distribution of the ski.
Glide in the groomed tracks or make your own trail through the woods and travel quickly with the Madshus Glittertind MGV+ cross-country skis. Durable cores feature laminated stringers of wood and a camber tuned for off-trail skiing. Triaxial braiding weaves fiberglass around the cores to produce excellent torsional rigidity and increase strength. Tips and tails remain soft for easy turning without wash out; soft flex enhances flotation in new snow. Multigrip Vario+ (MGV+) wax-free base features a positive waxless pattern with variable depth, spacing and angles. MGV+ pattern is most aggressive under foot and then tapers toward the front and back for smooth, natural glide. Ski confidently down firm slopes thanks to the full-length steel edges on the Madshus Glittertind MGV+ cross-country skis. 68mm tips, 55mm waists and 62mm tails create ample sidecut for turning in soft snow; tip shape breaks trail easily on off-trail adventures. Skis pair well with NNN BC bindings or 3-pin bindings (sold separately).
