The Ingstad BC is a modern back country ski with a generous sidecut, built for speed and agile turns.
An ideal ski for demanding descents and extended traverses across flat terrain alike, its versatility comes from a moderate wax pocket, a pronounced Nordic rocker, and a tapered tip: it is stable, willing to turn, and easy to handle in deep snow and demanding terrain.
The ski’s triple core of paulownia and poplar allows a low weight: a pair of 200cm skis is fractionally over 2kg.
Ingstad BC skis are equipped with Skinlock, ready for a climbing skin to be attached in an instant for climbing. For this ski, we recommend a 58mm X-Skin in nylon for wet and steep terrain or a narrower mohair skin (45mm) for cold temperatures and flat terrain.
Helge Ingstad, once Governor of Greenland and Svalbard, was known as a trapper, polar hero, and scientist. He published several best-sellers about hunting in Canada, Greenland and Svalbard. Through this work he contributed to the creation to the heroic representations of the hunter’s adventurous life. Ingstad was also a researcher with a particular interest in the history and ethnography of the Arctic who contributed to our knowledge of the cultures of polar societies and the Norse settlements of North America.
