Lars's Bio

Just getting back into skiing after spending my summers and winters xc training and racing. Looking forward to relearning to ski since I've snowboarded since I was 10. #iworkout

Andrew it correct. CH4 is the coldest. But while he said "if you are really concerned about top speed as soon as you start skiing, you can brush with a nylon to top it off" the way to really get the fastest skis would generally be to put some sort of graphite on before hand or at least brush with a black and then blue fine brush.

I've had these shoes since Christmas 2009. Best Christmas present ever. I live in Fairbanks, AK and these are the best shoe I've found for walking around campus (I'm a student at UAF). They are super warm and keep your feet 100% dry. I've run through creeks in these and even though water comes in through the ankle my toes almost never get wet.

To sum it up: An amazing shoe that works great for a long time and looks good while doing it.

I've been using these as my normal everyday kicks for 3 months now and they are getting pretty worn. I haven't been running in them since I run on roads and hardpacked trails most of the time and have different shoes for that. But to answer your question, I would say they are very grippy. They are awesome if you are doing any sort of uphill racing in wet, messy conditions.

If you love ripping the groomers and thats what you want from your skis go with the 179s. Managing the trees will take a little more out of your legs but they'll tear up the corduroy like a champ.
