Our 45cm A100 skate with two colors inspired by southcentral Alaska’s world-famous Kenai River. Kenai Teal is a rich teal with a subtle metallic sparkle that evokes the river’s glacial waters. Kenai Pink is a light salmon pink with a subtle iridescent green/gold sparkle.
The A100 is the original Ermine Skate. Rugged, reliable, and well-designed for the toughest wild ice you can throw at it.
Each order includes one pair of A100 Nordic skates. Every skate is made by hand in Alaska out of US materials. Skates do not include bindings, but do include a set of mounting hardware (select your binding type below).

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 bumpers provide increased performance at low cost.
Note: If firm bumpers are purchased along with a pair of NNN BC bindings, we will install the firm bumpers on your skates for you and include your stock medium flexors in a bag along with your order.
