    • 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)

    Madshus Glittertind MGV+ Cross-Country Skisis rated4.0out of5by2.
    Rated4out of5byfromThe Jury is Still OutI have been looking to replace my wonderful Fisher Touring Crown (not Country Crown) skis (without metal edges), as they are about 10 years old and may be wearing out. I want skis that can be used for light backcountry skiing, sometimes with a pack, and occasionally in groomed tracks. I have tried a few other skis, but find them too slow or too heavy. Although I have only used them one weekend, I find that they are faster than many backcountry skis, because they are thinner and longer. I am still trying to see if the extra weight with the metal edge is worth the metal edge.

    Rated4out of5byfromExcellent Classic BC/Tele SkiThis is a very nice BC touring ski. Lacks a little float in deep powder but pretty good considering how skinny it is. The glide and grip of the waxless pattern are very good. Control seems very good stemming down hills but I can't speak for it's telemarking prowess; it is however an old school tele ski so it should perform with the right boots and technique. I mated mine with some 3 pin bindings and I am very happy with the setup. They are super easy to control and very light feeling. Even skiing a longer ski than I had previously tested, they feel easier to get around on. These also are thin enough to ski in others tracks and they glide well in them. Overall an extremely versatile ski that can be pushed either towards touring or tele based on the boots you use.
