The Combat Nato was originally developed with a white design for military use. It is a very light and robust steel edged ski with a 22 mm side cut. The Nato hosts a moderate wax pocket, a tail insert and a milled area in the base to accommodate the short skin. These are wide back country skis optimized for downhill and flow, with good carrying capacity and driving performance for hunting. They have easy turn capability when downhill skiing, and a short skin system which reduces friction.
