I've only used it a couple times, but for low-angle touring, this ski seems to be perfect. The traction base can climb a decent angle without skins and on flats with a lightweight boot, you can kick-glide as if you were classic cross-country skiing. It's way faster to be able to glide up a 10% grade road on scales than trudge along with skins.
This is the perfect ski for my needs touring backcountry mine and cattle roads. They work in both hard and soft snow conditions. Skins recommended in steeper uphill hard packed trail. This is my second BC set up I have purchased from these guys. Cripple Creek staff are knowledgeable and great to work with. Ask for Paul.
