You are talking about Asnes skis right?! :mrgreen:

Re: Nnnbc magnum bindings on wide skis???

Then tell gramps to stop "personally attacking" my intelligence. I see no indication of you being attacked. What I see is you feeling quite bothered by someone elses words which have nothing in fact to do with you. I'm not too sure where TM is going with Alpine and Off Piste. My best guess is he is...

Re: Alpina BC 1600 Boot

The BC1600 has been around longer than the Alaska. Are you sure the Alaska is not as supportive? Its got the same look as the Alfa Skarvet, which I believe it the specific boot Alpina was trying to compete with in the scandinavian market.

Re: Ski Review 2018-19 Asnes Nansen versus Fischer E109 Crown Xtralite

That's precisely how my first generation of E99 extralites failed (the ones with the mountain landscape on them, 2013 or so). I had to contact the Fisher rep directly and haggle my way into a free replacement. Mine failed on their 50s or so day of skiing. I had to stress that my partner skied all th...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

Ahahahah! Didn't you know that there is a wax especially made for this? There is a wax for *everything*! You must know that as a wax enthusiast right? :lol: Yup, a wax for everything. Even I produce my own unique brand. For skins though, I wouldnot get overly concerned about the type of hardwax I w...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

Have y'all ever tried ductaping you arms? The feeling is phenomenal when you pull it off. Kind of like slapping skins on skins I guess. I would not expect any different result. Wax? Well, who wants wax stuck in the glue base of their skins? Skins on skins sounds like a little over-engineered mishap ...

Re: Boot Review: Crispi Lofoten 75

I ski an Alaska BC, it’s a great boot and system. However for me I think the limit is skinnier skis. Bottom line my life is good, two systems for different skis. ..., but what about my skis that I want to tour on lighter than my Ski March boot? What if I want a stiffer boot like the Ski March to sk...

Re: Leather Ski Boots & Light Telemark Boots

The big problem here is they don't make a light plastic 2 buckle 75 mm boot. Excursions are much heavier then they *should* be. Maybe it's time to try out the recent T-4. I've always had a "scarpa" foot. Free pivot is overrated and overused. It absolutely rocks for breaking trail in powder but for ...

You can remove the gaiters if you do not want them. 115$ and they are yours.
