Technical info:
Only Åsnes make a touring ski with a skin fastener. And the Norwegian brand deserves credit for making untraditional touring skis. But, except for the skin fastener, Eggi 108 features among the standard models in this test – a little heavy and with average measurements. The flex is even and a little stiff in the back. The turning radius is a notch longer than the average. Long rocker in the front and back, and a relatively high specific weight.

On snow:
Åsnes´ widest touring ski doesn´t make the test riders weep of joy nor anger. The technical measurements are quite normal. It feels a little unstable and unpredictable, and there is not much response. At the same time, Eggi 108 is perfectly ok to skid with, also in the transition from carved turns to skidding. This ski is for ski touring enthusiasts who like Åsnes and prefer moderate speed in deep snow, as opposed to the rough and hard stuff.
