The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Mountain Race Junior from Åsnes is a ski made for little mountaineers. Versatile, it will be used for both Nordic Backcountry skiing and cross-country skiing.
Its 3/4 steel edge offers control; its soft tip and prominent sidecut allow easy turns. A perfect ski for playful days in the snow, frustrating slides in slippery conditions can be prevented with the attachment of a short skin: good times for all guaranteed (well, almost).
A 30mm mohair skin is recommended for these skis, cut to about 3 to 5 cm behind the heel of the boot. A 45mm for better grip is also possible.
We also recommend NNN bindings or junior bindings, allowing the use of the same shoes as classic cross-country skiing. Combi boots are a good idea, too – they’re usually thicker, warmer and more stable. There is nothing wrong in mounting a NIS plate or an adjustable touring binding either.
