Technical info:
Åsnes is back. Well, they have never really been gone, but touring skis made in China is novelty. Fyk is the test's narrowest ski. Although it is made with cap construction and has a relatively low weight, it is not in the forefront of the weight competition. Tear has a classic geometry, with a long sidecut and camber in the waist, but new to this version is the little rocker in the front. The tip is soft while it is stiffer towards the back.

On snow:
It´s great that Åsnes are making touring skis and we believe that the brand will rise again. However, the first impression of Fyk was not convincing. It feels like an old fashioned ski that cuts down into the snow. With a little adjustment it gets better. It turns well on an even and preferably soft surface. But it lacks the modern shape that allows skidding whenever you like. Fyk never became a favorite among the test skiers at Fri Flyt.
