December 17, 2015

Seattle, Wash. (December 17, 2015) – Madshus, the world’s leading performance Nordic ski company, has expanded its IntelliGrip® skin program to include an integrated base solution in a variety of new ski models for a more hands-off classic skiing experience. First introduced on the Terrasonic Classic IntelliGrip® model for 2015, the IntelliGrip® base will now be available on Race, Race Performance, and Classic Performance models within Madshus’ 2016 ski line.

The goal behind the integrated IntelliGrip® Base is to deliver a product that appeals to a wide range of users, from newcomers to professional Nordic racers looking to expand their quivers with the latest in waxless technology.

Fully merging the progressive-profiled IntelliGrip® skin into the base underfoot gives the mohair/nylon blended skin optimal grip and glide in all conditions. It’s what Madshus describes as a “Simply Skiing!” solution that will keep users skiing for longer, while removing the guesswork out of ski prep.

Key features include:
·       Confident traction in all snow conditions
·       Prevention of ice formulating in the kick zone
·       Better glide than normal waxless skis
·       Easily replaceable skins via hot melted glue application

Available on the following models:
·       Nanosonic Carbon Classic IntelliGrip® ($655.00)
·       Terrasonic Classic IntelliGrip® ($370.00)
·       Ultrasonic IntelliGrip® ($270.00)
·       Brikebeiner Carbon Classic IntelliGrip® ($340.00)
