Karhu Fusion 2.0 "Kitee Pack"
Karhu ski’s were one of the first produced items in a small workshop located in downtown Helsinki where locally sourced birch was transformed into winter forms of transport.
Worn by the Finnish army through to world champions like Harri Kirvesniemi, who is part of the Karhu family as the official licensee of Karhu ski, cross-country skiing has helped to shape the brand to what it is today. Last winter, the Karhu team visited Harri at the Karhu ski factory in Kitee, a small Finnish town in the east of Finland. Here they got to know more about the factory, the technical aspects of producing ski’s and Harri’s cross-country ski experiences and anecdotes.
To honour the man that is still part of the Karhu legacy and the place Karhu make their ski’s, We intorduce the Karhu Fusion 2.0 “Kitee” pack.
In Keeping with the winter season, the material selection on both Fusion 2.0's consists of a mix of pigskin suede, water repellent nylon and lycra. Extra detail is included with speckled EVA midsoles and rope lacing to add that outdoor sport feel to the shoes. The Fusion 2.0 remains a salute to the original Fusion model from 1996, when it was one of the most technical running shoes in the collection. The Special Edition "Kitee Pack" is available both in store and ONLINE NOW!
