Skishoes, Sliding Snowshoes, Bushwacking Skis, Skinbased High Tech Mohair Skis

There are a number of products in the Skishoes, Sliding Snowshoes, Bushwacking Skis category:

Finally there are some replacements for the old Trak Bushwacker skis. Most of them are also skinbased, use high tech mohair, for better grip than fishscales.

Altai Skis  – http://www.altaiskis.com  LL Bean, Eastern Mountain Sports list both sizes of the Hok on their web sites.

  • Hok in both 125 cm and 145 lengths.
  • Also the Kom, a fishscale base Telemark ski 162 cm.

OAC, Outdoor Action Finland – https://readymag.com/oac/skinbased/3/, http://Skinbased.com is OAC’s English language web site. http://www.oac.fi/oac-sport/

  • OAC WAP 127
  • OAC KAR 147
  • OAC XCD 160

The korpijaakko.com post says that the OAC WAP 127 and KAR 147 have more X-C ski DNA than the Hok – more camber, binding moved to the ski balance point, less mohair and the mohair is the Swiss mohair. [same brand as the Atomic Skintec skis?]
