Re: Lurk or 2 sticks for xcD with soft leather boot ?

Well... I tried Yesterday. One pole help. But this is not as good i was hoping ! You get more stability but the turn is too slow to initiate and you can't reach this stability enough quickly in tight turn. And, I can say that for me and my ski technic, the Alaska NNNBC boots are too soft in challeng...

Re: Lurk or 2 sticks for xcD with soft leather boot ?

Hello Yes. I'm ok with you, one pole on the flat is not so efficient than 2 poles... In fact, where I'm skiing in the Alps, there is almost no flat but always challenging downhill around 35 degres ! With soft leather boots (Alaska NNNBC) and Asnes FT62, on bad snow, even with a good ski technic i th...

Re: Lurk or 2 sticks for xcD with soft leather boot ?

Maybe !
But when you see the altai skier, they are using one pole and walking all day long taking there pole with 2 hand ;)

Re: Lurk or 2 sticks for xcD with soft leather boot ?

Hello Thanks for the advices. I already used lurk in the past with big solid shoes and, yes, the outside is the best way to use one pole ! Now, I have to try this technic with the combo : soft boots / bad snow / alpin mountain... That's a lot challenging ! :? However... I will make my one experience...

Lurk or 2 sticks for xcD with soft leather boot ?

Hello :?: I'm wondering if using a lurk (one long stick) with soft leather boots would be more efficient for the xcD with telemark turn in challenging snow ? Does anyone want to share his thougts or experiences ? For me, having 3 contacts points with the snow help to get more balanced position... Bu...

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

Hello Cannatonic, Yes you are right ! But some time, in technical terrain, it's a question of safety. I'm using both (excursion on a wide ski and Alaska on FT65 ski) I agree that beiing abble to ski well the Alaska/FT62 combinaison in hard conditions give me more satisfaction. But Excursion give me ...

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

Thanks for your feedback Like you on my alpi-nordic mountain, with variable snow condition, it's easier and more fun to ski with fat ski (84mm under foot) and plastic boots... But i agree that when the snow is good NNNBC binding & Alaska boot ( with FT62 ski) is really good (even better) in comparai...

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

Hy Lo-Fi

Then ? What's your conclusion ?
The NNNBC is your new choice for the xcD ?

Or will you be back on 3pin and strong boots (plastic or leather).
