What gear should I use for cross-country-skiing?
Cross-country skiing is divided in two techniques, classic and skating, and each one requires some very-specific gear.
What gear should I buy for classic cross-country skiing?
The classic technique is the most traditional way, at first it was used for journeys and hunting and progressively developed to become the most practiced technique in the world. Thanks to its similarities with walking, it’s the guarantee of having nice and easy sessions on the physical and technical levels.
Regardless of your preferences and ambitions, the Simon Fourcade Nørdic experts have selected products suited for all levels and all expectations.
