Get off the trail when the soft powder looks too good to tour over with the Madshus Eon, a nordic ski that can cut a turn on easy slopes.

The extruded, positive Omnitrak base is super durable and really takes a bite out of steep terrain. Added camber makes your glide more efficient than most hybrid skis.

    Comments about Madshus Eon Ski - Men's:

    This ski is identical to the Karhu XCD GT. This ski comes in either a waxable base; or a waxless base. I currently use the waxless base. These are well designed off-trail xcountry skis. I have skied several hundred kilometers on my current pair, with no problems. Although this ski is marketed as a hybrid between a telemark and a classic xcountry ski; it truly excels as an off-trail classic kick and glide ski. Yes it does have a progressive sidecut; it will turn on the downhill. However it has quite a straight tail, and tracks very efficiently during the kick and glide (this sacrifices some turning efficiency). As far as telemark skiing; there are other skis that turn much more efficiently (true telemark skis). My everyday skiing is off-trail kick and glide, through rolling terrain, with the occasional steep climb and descent. This is an excellent ski for this use, except in deep powder. If you are routinely breaking trail in deep powder; this ski is not enough. For deep, fresh powder I use the Madshus Annum (formerly the Karhu XCD Guide). For off-trail kick and glide skiing I recommend NNNBC bindings with a burly boot (I am currently using the Alpina Alaska). 75mm bindings are much more versatile; but the NNNBC is much more efficient with classic xcountry skiing. Contrary to the marketing; I would recommend choosing a long length. I am currently on 195cm. When I am in the perfect conditions for this ski; I often find myself wanting 205mm (better glide). If you want them short for telemark turns; I would recommend considering a true telemark ski. As is often said, "this ski is more about the tour than the turn."
