You like Nordic skiing, you have decided to buy your pair of cross-country skis or a ski pack with bindings. Speck-sports has been the specialist in the sale of cross-country and nordic skis for 50 years. You will find on our e-shop everything you need for your cross-country skiing equipment. You can also complete your equipment with nordic ski boots, cross-country ski poles and all the accessories for winter sports.
What type of cross-country skis to choose? 
There are two disciplines in cross-country skiing:
The classic or alternative step is the most traditional technique where you progress with the skis in parallel. To avoid going backwards when climbing, cross-country skis use different anti-recoil devices:
-competition skis, a special retaining wax called Klister that is applied to a middle surface of the ski base. It is sometimes more difficult to implement because you have to consider the temperature of the snow when choosing wax and wax at the last minute.
-recreational or sports skis use scales. Theoretically, we have a little less sliding, but it's more secure.
In recent years, Nordic ski brands have developed an anti-recoil system based on synthetic skins that is becoming more and more efficient.
A discipline apart from cross-country skiing is cross-country skiing. Specific equipment (wider skis, stronger bindings, stiffer boots) is then used to get away from the groomed slopes.
Skating. It is the sportier version of cross-country skiing. We progress by taking skating steps, there is no anti-recoil system. It's more physical than classic cross-country skiing but we also go much faster. The skis are different. We take them shorter, the spatulas are rounded. Skating boots are stiffer with a much higher collar to hold the foot and transmit impulses.

For cross-country ski bindings and Nordic ski boots, there are two standards: one developed by Salomon with a large central groove called SNS Profile and the other by Rossignol, Fischer and Rottefella with two grooves. The strong trend is a convergence towards the standard with two grooves. Salomon now markets products with this standard under the name Prolink.

Cross-country ski poles are chosen according to the discipline you have chosen: Skating or alternative. In skating, we take the sticks much bigger. The more carbon there is in Nordic ski poles, the stiffer and lighter (but also more expensive) the poles will be.
 Speck-sports has selected the best brands of cross-country skiing. The skis are sold either alone or in packs with bindings. 
There are of course women's nordic skis with a construction adapted to the female morphology, junior nordic skis for the little champions.

    Bare cross-country skis.
    You already have your bindings and want to reuse them for your new pair of cross-country skis. Some cross-country skis (those without a pre-assembled plate) can be mounted with a large number of bindings. Speck-sports offers you a wide choice of bare nordic skis and bindings adapted to them.
