Re: What boot is this? Scarpa NTN

Yep, it's just an old Terminator X...

The TX Pro is pretty much the NTN equivalent of the T2... Super soft, yet offering more control than you will ever need...

The ALFA Appreciation Society

The ALFA fever rate has been pretty high over the last seasons here at TelemarkTalk. Since our reviews of the Guard and Polar boots two years ago, they suddenly became VERY popular. The Guard Advance is now a lot of people's favorite boot. And it's a good thing for XCD skiers. So as promised, dear m...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

Fairytale lands are the fabric of this world... Remember 4lbs NTN in 2006? Pretty sure this is what will happen again. Personally, I sure will start modding the XPLORE and building my own 99g XP-TECH binding as soon as the boots are available... 8-) Bri7 , will your new machine shop ready for the su...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

Obviously the price point and design efforts are drastically different, but if the top skimo bindings are now getting down to 92 grams (per pair!!!) then surely it must be possible to shed some of the 500-ish grams (per pair) off the NNN BC binding. Yep, that is pretty much what I said here: http:/...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

Johnny, I think some of your binding weights are for a pair of bindings and some for one binding. Rottefella XPLORE is 530g/pair and 265g pr binding. Same with NNN BC, I'm quite sure NNN BC Magnum is 260 g pr binding. Oh, you are right about NNN-BC... My bad... It's funny that it took almost a year...
