Outdoor Action Finland's "gliding snowshoes", as they were called, were an immediate hit. This new super short, super wide ski was equipped with integrated skins giving them excellent grip in all conditions. Perfect for deep snow, they were a blast in downhills as well.
OAC Skinbased skis remain a smoother, more efficient alternative to snowshoes but the current lineup is much more than that: they are perfect for backcountry exploration and thanks to their compact size they are superbly easy to transport.
OAC also offers a great all-around backcountry binding, the EA. With these bindings, you can wear pretty much any winter boots with no compatibility problems. Two well-padded straps with ratchet buckles keep your skis secured to your feet.
