Closeouts. Maintain control in any situation on Atomic Xcruise 59 Posigrip cross-country skis. The G3-nowax base efficiently grips and glides over varied terrain, and the Helium-Tube-Densolite core enables the ski to respond to your every movement.

Nice skis, mounted them with Rottefella NNN for a well balanced set-up. There are for beginners/intermediates or if you just want a cheaper 2nd set for not-so-ideal conditions. The wax-free system is only so good in icy / steep conditions as is to be expected. Tried them just a few times before the snow unfortunately melted in the parks where I go xc skiing around here. These are 2nds, the top markings are a smidge off including the balance point indication so pay attention when you mount the bindings. Also the top of the ski at the back end is (deliberately?) cut off. I covered that with epoxy to prevent moisture from getting into the ski. Tip: I still wax the front and back with a good glider wax to enhance the glide - I feel it works quite well that way.

Wife and I each purchased a pair (163 & 183) and after a few trips out, are quite satisfied with them, especially for the price. Disagree with previous review that the skis are too stiff - ours seem appropriate for the lengths. They've performed well on varied terrain and in the mostly new snow we've had so far this season. The bases seemed surprisingly quick, if a bit soft/prone to damage. Upon close inspection they appear to be slight 2nds - but nothing to lose sleep over given our intended use - touring/bushwacking.
