Mountain Race 46

Super-light cross country ski with steel edges

Increasing number of skiers are seeking high-speed trips to the mountains with light equipment – but this should not come at the expense of safety.

The Mountain Race 46, with its pronounced wax pocket, moderate sidecut and full steel edges, is a ski for exactly that – perfect for those who start the journey in groomed tracks and leave for adventure in unmarked terrain.

Strong enough to handle rough terrain and hard conditions, the Mountain Race 46 is built with a Paulownia wood core for strength and weight – it weighs in at an incredible 1510g per pair in 200cm.

The MR46 is also equipped with Skinlock, allowing the instant attachment of the X-Skin, making it possible to climb more demanding hills and negotiate more demanding terrain with little effort.

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.
