posted by ORS Cross Country Skis Direct

You’ll be blazing new trails, reaching peak fitness, and gaining confidence and enjoyment on your skis this winter thanks to the Alpina T5 nordic touring NNN ski boots! Alpina ski boots are known for quality and performance, and the Alpina T5 also delivers impressive value thanks to the economical pricing on this boot. The unisex-sized T5 is compatible with NNN touring bindings and touring cross country skis for light-duty off-trail skiing like rolling hills, snowy lakes, or golf courses, as well as for kicking and gliding on groomed nordic ski trails. The Alpina T5 boot features warm, cozy Thinsulate lining with a sealed tongue to repel moisture, and a wrap-around heel counter for stability and support. The lightweight NNN touring soles flex naturally with your foot when striding, and the simple lace system is quick and adjustable to fit any shape or size foot.

Scott Excursion Backcountry 3-Pin Ski Boot Replaces Garmont Excursion Model
posted by ORS Cross Country Skis Direct

The popular Garmont Excursion backcountry ski boot has been re-released for 2014 as the Scott Excursion plastic bc-tele ski boot. Garmont has been purchased by Scott Sports, which means that these boots not only deliver the same unmatched quality under a new name, but also include a few improvements. The plastic shell Scott Excursion backcountry ski boot for 75mm 3pin bindings pairs well with virtually any bc ski, from wide telemark-style models with lots of sidecut to comparatively narrow, touring-oriented options. New to this year’s version, the Excursion comes with additional bellows protection for natural flex and a stiffer tongue for higher performance. Available in both men’s and women’s sizing, the completely waterproof Excursion also features a Pebax shell for torsional control, a proprietary PadLock liner with EVA foam for comfort and warmth, a power strap and two-buckle closure system for on-the-fly adjustment and dependably snug fit, and a Vibram sole for quality and durability.

Atomic XCruise 53 and Atomic XCruise 59 No-Wax Nordic Touring Skis Now In Stock
posted by ORS Cross Country Skis Direct

ORS Cross Country Skis Direct is thrilled to be carrying two new XC ski models from Atomic for the 2014 season: the Atomic XCruise 53 touring skis and the Atomic XCruise 59 touring skis. These two products offer identical technical features but are different dimensions to cater to specific ski styles and destinations. The Atomic XCruise 53 is ideal for recreational and performance athletes looking to ski for fitness on packed snow or kick-and-glide in tracks at a nordic ski center. The shape on this ski (53mm-48mm-51mm) makes it fast yet stable. The Atomic XCruise 59 is perfect for skiers who want to split their time between striding on groomed trails and exploring the untracked or unpredictable skiing found on snowmobile trails or golf courses; alternately, the XCruise 59 is also a great choice for novice skiers looking to feel confident and secure as they improve. The shape on this ski (59mm-50mm-54mm) makes it stable but versatile for more varied snow conditions or terrain. Both XCruise models provide no-slip grip and smooth glide for climbing, descending, and classic-type skiing, thanks to the extruded PosiGrip 3D waxless pattern on the base of the skis; compact-length sizing for increased control, acceleration, and maneuvering on corners or around obstacles; and a Helium Tube Densolite core/cap that adds durability, reduces weight, and produces a lively, responsive feel underfoot.

Introducing the Fischer Outback 68 Metal Edge Backcountry Cruising Skis
posted by ORS Cross Country Skis Direct

New for the 2013-2014 season, ORS Cross Country Skis Direct is proud to offer the go-anywhere Fischer Outback 68 off-track cruising backcountry ski. This light-duty backcountry ski with full metal edges is perfect for off-trail touring in varied terrain and snow conditions, whether you’re kicking and gliding through fresh backcountry powder, rolling along climbs and descents out the back door, or exploring icy snowmobile trails. The Outback 68 features a proprietary Offtrack Crown waxless base pattern that provides reliable grip for kicking and climbing and effortless glide for touring and descending; user-friendly nordic rocker construction that turns up the tips of the skis for easier maneuvering and flotation through deep snow; universal stone ground Sintec bases that provide optimal glide and can accept hot wax on the ski tips and tails; air channel cores that create lightweight, responsive, and durable skis; and metal edges for exceptional control and stability. The ski dimensions (68-59-64mm) track straight for touring but are easy to turn, too, and the compact sizing makes this ski especially suited for veering through trees or tight corners.

All-New Rossignol Evo OT Partial Metal Edge XC Ski
posted by ORS Cross Country Skis Direct

Sometimes you want a ski you can use in-track on a groomed trail…but sometimes you want a ski you can take out the back door on a snow day. So why not choose a ski that does both? The exciting new Rossignol Evo OT touring ski is ideal for novice or recreational skiers and on or off trail outings. It features wood air core construction and a partial metal edge that provides added control and stability but allows for flex at the tip and tail of the ski, improving grip and glide and reducing weight. Combine this with Rossignol’s superior Positrack waxless base pattern and you’ve got a ski that provides excellent kick, no-slip climbing, and smooth, easy gliding when classic striding or descending. The Evo OT dimensions (65-53-60mm) are narrow enough to fit in a ski track at a touring center, but wide enough to feel confident and comfortable underfoot for off-trail adventures, and the compact sizing of the Evo line makes this ski especially easy to maneuver around corners or between trees. The Rossignol Evo OT is the perfect ski for varied snow conditions and mixed terrain, from golf courses to snowmobile trails to Nordic touring centers to gliding through the backyard with the whole family. The Evo OT is available in 165cm, 175cm, 185cm, and 195cm sizes.
