Re: Crispi Evo Boots spontaneously releasing

From TelemarkSkier Mag: https://www.telemarkskier.com/telemark-tech-norm-another-one/ "When issues arose last winter (2019) with a few Crispi boots not cooperating with Meidjo and Lynx something had to change. It appeared the boots were, literally, coming up short at the duckbutt (NTN’s second heel)...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2020-2021!)

Objectives are awesome... But a WL Tindan would be much better... There is a whole universe of skis between the Ingstad and the Objective... And only one single choice comes in the WL flavor, the great S98... (Rossicrap doesn't even count...) Also, don’t you want to get your FT62 back so I can buy t...

Re: The Åsnes Thread (News for 2020-2021!)

No new Asnes models for the 2020-2021 season... And VERY sadly, no wider waxless skis either... :cry: But the good news is that they have been experimenting with wide waxless skis. They have some prototypes being tested, and hopefully they will come out before I spend all my money on... Wait, on wha...

Re: Asnes Combat NATO / Nansen 2-Part Pole Review

The finest (and best looking) poles for everything touring...! For more DH-oriented skiing, I prefer the smaller cork handles like on the Tind Alloy ones... I really, really like the baskets... I've been using Asnes poles exclusively for 2 seasons without any basket problems... Roelant, what broke o...

Re: Thinking about new boots, 75mm vs NTN, from my perspective.

NTN puts your connection to the ski right under the ball of your foot, where you bear your weight and center your balance whenever you're on your feet. This is a far better spot from which to steer and control your skis. More solid connection and in the best spot. Much better than that duck bill ex...

Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

Man, I am so glad you have received your order... What a relief bro! LaCordee owes 22 million dollars to honest people. Honest people and families everywhere around the world are losing money because of them. Including more than 50 local family-owned businesses from Quebec. Some of them already went...

Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

Anyway, my main point was, if LaCordee can rip people off in every single possible way, they sure can mess up with labels and tags on ski boots just to liquidate their stocks before closing... Or maybe the 16yo clerk in Laval who never skied mixed up demo boxes, boots and insoles...? I think Alpina ...

Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

A couple of friends received their stuff in multiple shipments. As soon as the pack is sent, they charge it to their account. A couple of friends ordered respectively 3, 4 and 5 weeks ago, got their card charged and still didn't receive anything except cheap bad excuses. I feel so bad for them. Can...

Re: Alpina Alaska real, real bad sizing...

Proofs? Just use common sense... Look at the numbers in La Presse... I hope our friends Asnes in Norway didn't lose too much... No need for any "buy local" bullshit anymore, the poor local manufacturers will NOT get their money anyway! La Cordee can legally continue to steal customers money without ...
