The opinion of Aventure Nordique

As our Canadian cousins would say, the Amundsen Fram BC is an off-piste cross-country ski. Except that this ski is Norwegian and it is totally cut to get out of the tracks and go over large expanses... With its narrow sidelines, you will certainly be able to take some passages on prepared Nordic tracks, but please, it is a bit of an offense to Roald Amundsen, not to go on an adventure in the wilderness of our massifs here and elsewhere.

I grant you, for the moment, you don't know too much about these technical characteristics. Now that I have given the framework of the use, here is his Nordic identity card:

This ski has a topsheet with the figure of Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian polar explorer who was the first man to reach the South and North Poles. Numerous expeditions were carried out aboard his polar ship the "Fram".

So Åsnes (the brand), Amundsen (the explorer) and BC (as Backcountry). Ok?
Well, now, you should know that this ski has metal edges all along its length, an efficient anti-backwards system made of scales. In addition to the scales, these Amundsen are equipped with the Skinlock device, which allows you to attach an X-Skin half-skin system. These half seal skins, sold separately, are positioned on the centre of the ski, on the scales in the support area to avoid recoiling when moving forward. With this system, you get a good grip on the supports and enough glide on the heel and spatula. For the record, Åsnes invented this integrated half-skin system.

The Amundsen therefore offers a very good glide and good grip. The sidecut of this ski is clearly designed for long hikes on slightly hilly terrain, high plateaus and long traverses.
