The Norpine Thread

Definitely my favorite free-heel discipline after NTN and XCD. Single camber and skinny light skis are nearly impossible to find nowadays... Thank God for the Falketinds, they are almost the only ones on the market over 160cm. (I can't wait for the day skimo racing skis will be available in 220cm!) ...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

I have been stuck with this incurable fever for 42 years... If you ever hear of a good therapy, please drop me a note...
(Oops, sorry, no Asnes content!)

Re: Racing Skimo on a Tele setup?

That is what I used to do with skimo gear, pins and cables... And I had a lot of fun doing so... But speed was never my intention... There are several nice discussions about this topic elsewhere on the forum... Check out this thread by iBjorn: http://www.telemarktalk.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1097...

The Asnes Tindan 86, A very brief history: Tindan-HISTORY.jpg It all started around 2010, with the modern versions of the old “A-Ski” and the “Comp” Asnes classic skis. They got revamped into fatter versions to please the new generation of skiers. The fat ski development was growing at a very rapid...

Re: ALFA Quest Dynamic / Kikut Perform GTX NNN-BC Ski Boot Review

Cooool...! I can only say positive things about the Kikuts! It's funny though, how the new Guard GTX is a real game-changer for me. Even though I was looking to buy a second pair of Kikuts, I find it quite amazing how the Alfa Guard fills up all my needs, both for the stiff-supportive-aggresive-down...

Re: NNN-BC versus Pins: Just the facts

Once there was a very wise guy. He had deep knowledge and experience, he really knew his stuff. He spoke the truth. But he was very humble, he didn't talk much. He would rather spend his time all alone in the mountains. In fact, he didn't like to talk. But when he did, his words were full of wisdom....

Re: 2019 ALFA Guard Advance GTX M Boots Review

I am immune to all this talk about Alfa boots. My new Alaska boots fit like they were custom made for my feet. I have enough Ski equipment, I am immune to this thread.
