Finngrip Easy – ski bindings of champions
Winners trust Finngrip bindings
Kuusamo’s cross-country ski bindings were in heavy use in the 2015 Off-Track Skiing World Championship in Pudasjärvi. The team that managed come out on top was Finngrip Kuusamo, which consisted of Markus Helander, Jaakko Pitkänen, Janne Kortelainen and Jorma Teivaanmäki. Over the gruelling two days the group skied approximately 70 kilometres. The competition was tough and skiers had to make camp for the night in the terrain without any support. Members of the Finngrip Kuusamo team used Finngrip bindings when preparing for the competition as well as during the competition itself.
We asked Markus Helander a few questions about forest skiing.
How many kilometres do you ski a year?
“The members of the team amass several hundred kilometres of cross-country each year. Some of it is skied in unbroken snow and some on hard-packed snow.”
What are the benefits of the Finngrip Easy bindings?
“There are many benefits. They have good suspension, which minimises the stress on the ball of the foot. The functionality of the bindings is highlighted on treks where you need to carry a lot of stuff. I also thought it was good that snow can’t easily pack between the ski and the binding. The metal part of the bindings breaks up potential snow balls, which means you don’t have to be cleaning your skis all the time. These bindings can also be used with various kinds of footwear. I think that is a very important feature – it allows you to choose your shoes based on the conditions or the nature of the trek. This might feel like a small thing, but the bindings are also silent. I know many models that creak with every stroke. It’s very nice to be able to move silently in the quiet forest.”
