  • Rottefella NNN BC Manual binding

    We believe the Rottefella NNN BC Manual is the best binding for those who Nordic skate with an NNN BC setup. It is lighter than the NNN BC Magnum and more resistant to icing up in wet conditions than the NNN BC Auto.

    The NNN BC Manual includes stock medium black flexors. We recommend adding firm red flexors to your order to increase performance.

    Sea to Summit Lightweight Dry Sack

    Nordic skaters who carry backpacks should always use a dry sack to keep clothing and other gear dry in the event of a swim. The Sea to Summit Lightweight Dry Sack is a Nordic skating essential: it is rugged enough for winter use, simple and reliable, and awesomely lightweight. The 70D nylon fabric is soft and rolls easily, and the bright white waterproof PU coating is located on the inside of the bag, protecting it and increasing visibility in low winter light. The Hypalon roll-top closure is easy to use and features a D-ring attachment point at the buckle. All seams are fully taped.

    We recommend selecting a dry sack that matches your backpack size, and that is big enough to fit all of your critical safety gear. If in doubt, the 20L size is a good fit for most skaters.

  • Grivel Helix ice screw

    One Grivel Helix 12cm (4.7in) ice screw. Ice screws can be used to quickly test ice thickness, and to anchor a rope while performing a rescue.

    Why we love the Grivel Helix for Nordic skating:

    • The 12cm (4.7in) size is perfect for gauging safe ice depth
    • The shaft is threaded nearly to the top, maximizing hold in thin ice
    • Extremely quick-biting teeth and large handle make placements faster and easier
    • Sleek, simple design and a weight of only 133 grams (4.7oz)
    • Steel screws like the Grivel Helix are less likely to bind in wet ice than aluminum screws
    • Excellent value for a top-quality product

  • Rottefella NNN BC firm red flexor

    Firm red flexors fit all Rottefella NNN BC bindings, and are offered by Rottefella specifically for Nordic ice skating. Though the medium black flexors that come stock on NNN BC bindings do work for most users, firm flexors provide increased performance at an affordable price.

    Note: If firm flexors are purchased along with a pair of NNN BC bindings, we will install the firm flexors instead of the stock black flexors.

  • Rottefella NNN BC medium black flexor

    Medium black flexors for Rottefella NNN BC bindings.

    Note: We recommend using firm red flexors for Nordic skating. The firm red flexor was designed by Rottefella specifically for Nordic skating, and improves performance for Nordic skates. Ermine offers the medium black flexor primarily for those who need to replace flexors on skis or who want to move NNN BC bindings from Nordic skates to skis.
