Amundsen Fram BC

The best choice for adventurers with a sled and a load

The Amundsen Fram BC is the perfect choice for those who enjoy skiing on endless plains or planning an expedition. Stiffer than the Amundsen BC, and with a more pronounced wax pocket for a grip that lasts, this is a stable ski with a full steel edge that makes it a similarly superb option for adventurers planning treks with a sled or a heavy backpack.

The Amundsen Fram BC comes equipped with Skinlock, allowing the Åsnes X-Skin climbing skin to be attached in an instant for climbing.

Roald Amundsen (1872–1928), the first man to reach both the South and North Poles, was a polar explorer, discoverer, researcher and flight pioneer. He navigated the Northwest Passage and was a pioneer in the use of airships and planes in polar research. Many of his expeditions were made with the Polar ship ‘Fram’, owned by the explorer Fridjtof Nansen.

 

Choosing the right length

Ski length is determined according to body weight and height. The table below is only a guide, however – experience, skill, terrain and individual needs can all influence your choice of length.

Generally speaking, moving through rugged terrain calls for shorter skis than the open mountain plateau. And for beginners, short skis are easier to control. If you’re mainly skiing along tracks, length isn’t the most crucial factor. For good float on deep snow, a slighter wider ski is useful. Lighter skiers might consider a shorter ski; heavier skiers a longer ski. Skiers with loads such as backpacks and sledges might consider a longer ski.

Body length Weight (kg) Ski length
165-170 cm 60-70 180 cm
170-175 70-80 187
175-185 75-85 194
180-190 80-95 201
190 + 95 + 208
