Madshus Fjelltech M50 IGS Ski
A do-it-all Nordic touring ski with a 3/4-metal edge and integrated IntelliGrip skin. Compatible with NIS bindings
The Fjelltech M50 has proven itself as a popular all-around touring ski over the past two seasons. The use of skins instead of fish scales on a wider, metal-edged ski makes for excellent performance in a broad range of conditions. Just narrow enough to fit in a groomed track while still wide enough to provide excellent stability on backcountry trails. Integrated NIS plate allows for use of NNN-compatible bindings or NNN Backcountry (BC) bindings can be screwed in over the NIS plate.
- For NNN-compatible classic, touring, or combi boots: Rottefella Performance Classic
- For NNN-BC compatible boots: Rottefella BC Manual or Rottefella BC Automatic
Ski Size Selection
There are a number of factors to consider when selecting the right backcountry or touring ski. While each manufacturer has different sizing guidelines, in general, there are 3 main variables: skier weight, height, and experience.
Madshus’s sizing is based on skier weight. Less experienced skiers may want to size down if you are near the bottom of your weight range. More advanced skiers may want to size up if you are at the top of your weight range. A longer ski will be faster while a shorter ski will be easier to control.
