Cross-country skiing gear for adrenaline-fueled adventures
Whether you’re a seasoned snow pro or a curious first-time skier, cross-country skiing gear for classic skiing and skate skiing helps you glide onto the trails and enjoy the breathtaking winter wonderland.
Classic cross-country skiing is a straight-forward motion, following tracks in the snow and requiring equipment designed for grip and glide. Classic cross-country skis are long and narrow and have a grip zone in the middle of the ski for traction. On your feet, classic cross-country ski boots have a flexible sole for easy movement and classic cross-country bindings let the heel lift as you glide forward.
Skate skiing mimics the motion of ice skating, with no need to follow any tracks. These skis are shorter and stiffer and designed to glide smoothly with each step forward. Cross country ski poles are made of lightweight materials with a strap on each handle for a comfortable and secure grip. Cross-country boots for skate skiing have extra stiff ankles for protection and stability.
