The new Redline 3.0 fills the same needs as previous models, but the way this is done is totally new. Unlike in previous years where camber has been used to alter the "effective stiffness" of our skis, we have now taken an approach of altering the material laminates as well to better express the ski qualities and improve performance. Just as important as changing this approach to ski construction the new Redline 3.0 also changed their approach to camber design to better serve the needs of the racing world. Double poling is a critical aspect of modern skiing, and the Redline 3.0 classic ski reflects this. A successful racing ski will provide near-frictionless glide in double pole, and bomber kick during striding. Madshus has sought to achieve this by focusing on the dynamic properties of the ski, looking at the ski response through the whole loading phase from below half of skier-weight all the way up to over full skier-weight.
