Karhu Ski - is one of the oldest XC product manufacturers in the world.
The first Karhu skies have been manufactured in Finland as early as in 1916. (It has to be mentioned that one of the founders, Lauri "Tahko" Pihkala is known for inventing the Finnish national game called pesäpallo, a more tactical version of base ball.) Since those days, Karhu has always been among the leaders of development. Nowadays wax-free ski technology is the big thing and Karhu is right up there with its Beargrip and Bearskin solutions, making for effortless fun in the snow.
