Thread: karhu xcd gt vs. rossignol bc 90 positrack

    Default karhu xcd gt vs. rossignol bc 90 positrack

    I narrowed my choices of new xc skis down to these two. I don't do any tely or down hill, just rolling hills in the backcountry carrying a light pack or pulling a sled. What do you guys suggest?

    i have the rossi bc 70 (narrower ones), they work great, no complaints. I have heard plenty of good things about karhus as well. i don't think you will make a mistake with either choice.

    Thanks for the reply hre 814. Is there any body out there that has skied both skis? How would you compare the karhu omnitrack base to rossignol positrack?

    I have Karhu XCD`s and I like them. Karhu is saying that they are waxless skis but when I first went to ski I had to turn around and go home to but some wax on it (front and back).But the grip is very good and they are easy to climb. ones I waxed them they seems to slide a lot better. I don`t know anything about Rossignol`s and I do only back county ski`ing with them.

    My xcd`s are last year model. And I have old Finnish army bindings on it (cable/spring goes behind my boots) because I like to keep my toes warm. But trying to get something that works with bunny boots. I`m using now insulated rubber boots.

    akomppa: Thanks for the info. To keep the snow from sticking to the no wax base try putting on maxe-glide before each outting. At temps around 32 degrees snow wants to stick to a no wax base. This worked good on my old kodiaks and bushwakers.
