Wide and playful skis for Nordic Backcountry adventures The Falketind 62 is a wide and ultra-light backcountry ski designed, simply, to be great fun. Its generous sidecut makes it excellent on the turn – for the 180 cm ski, a radius of 18.7 metres. Designed with a moderate wax pocket and constructed with a responsive poplar wood core, carbon reinforced for optimum torsional characteristics, the Falketind is ideal for those planning longer trips in demanding and steep terrain.
It is a ski for those who love to be on skis – climbing far for the pleasure of the descent. Falketind skis are equipped with Skinlock, ready for an X-Skin (short skin) to be instantly locked in place when climbing. This ski also comes with fixations for race-skins, making it possible to use the fastest climbing skins on the marked and handle them like the pro’s.
The table here is intended as an aid and must not be followed slavishly. Skiing skills, terrain, packing and individual needs / habits are factors that influence the choice of length. Falketind 62 should be chosen close to your own body height.
|Body length||Ski length
|168-177 cm||172 cm|
|175-185 cm||180 cm|
|183-192 cm||188 cm|
|188+ cm||196 cm|
General advice: Skiing in rough terrain requires shorter skis than open mountain ranges. For beginners, it will often be easier with short skis. If you often go with heavy packing, the skis should be a little longer.
