Nordic Skis

Nordic skiing is a fun alternative to typical downhill skiing. Nordic skiing is typically performed on flatter terrain using narrow skis with boots that can be raised off the ski at the heel when striding. There are two main types: classic and skate skiing.

Slide Unique

The second generation of the Slide Unique remains the lightest and most adjustable offering on the market. To meet the needs of stand up skiers the Slide Unique now offers a balance of infinite adjustment and strong hold through a combination of tooled clamps and pinned positions. Custom clamps have been sourced to improve ease of use while its custom boot allows tool-less size changes.
