The 2014 Madshus Epoch backcountry skis (formerly Karhu XCD 10th Mountain) are waxless, full-metal edge backcountry touring skis with a generously wide platform. Though not as wide as the Madshus Annum, the 99mm-68mm-84mm sidecut (widths of ski at tip/middle/tail) retains excellent flotation on top of deep snow. The Madhus Epoch also features slightly more camber than the Madshus Annum, allowing these all-mountain backcountry touring-telemark skis to aggressively perform on more varied terrain and snow conditions. Serious back country skiers will appreciate its light weight, quickness and maneuverability in tight surroundings and/or less than ideal snow conditions. With 99mm-68mm-84mm dimensions, the sidecut is optimally shaped and tapered to carve remarkable turns.
Rocker: Single Camber Plus, soft for more versatility in varying snow conditions to retain responsive downhill performance and touring efficiency.
