Børge Ousland BC is a very light and versatile ski that fits down cross country tracks. A ski with a solid steel edge (2.1x1.9 mm) and a very lightweight wooden core, which is equally suitable for long trips and expeditions with pulk, as for days in hard and icy ski tracks. Because we use same steel edge on our mountain skis as is used on most alpine skis, we can guarantee good edge control on all conditions and high-level durability. This ski has a prominent camber profile which stetches in the length of the ski and a distinctive wax pocket, something which makes for an excellent ski for trips where good glide is essential. This ski also comes with a sole that has good wax absorption, is very durable and grinded to work in Nordic conditions– perfect for long outings in Nordic and Polar snow conditions.
Ousland BC ski has a moderate side cut so that the ski is directional, but also turns easily on hard snow. A soft front tip with the Nordic Rocker (lifted tip) and Taper (secluded widest point on the tip) makes for a ski that handle difficult conditions in the mountains well and floats more easily. This ski has a light wooden core in poplar and paulownia, which gives a playful, solid ski with good camber and very low weight. Børge Ousland BC weighs only just over 800 grams per ski in 200 cm length - then there is none bordering on how long and long you can ski!
The longitudinal stiffener and the construction of the Børge Ousland BC ski has good bearing capacity. This ski has been developed in close cooperation with the polar explorer, Børge Ousland, known as one of the most reputable adventures in modern polar history. Børge Ousland was the first man to reach the North Pole without supplies and support in 1990 together with Erling Kagge. In 1994 he went alone to the North Pole and on to Kapp Arkichevsky in Russia, the first in the world, and in 1996/1997 he was the first in the world to cross in and out of the South Pole without supplies, which also was the fastest entry into the South Pole in just 34 days. Since then, Børge Ousland has been at the North Pole during the winter and made several remarkable expeditions before in later years have lived of lectures, as an expedition organizer and on the island Manshausen in Steigen. We are proud to be able to work with Børge Ousland and we look forward to further cooperation and think it is great that we can benefit from his stories and advice.
