Re: To kicker skin or not to kicker skin that is the question?

I have a feeling that being a non-skier I'll be switching between snow shoes and skis on the long trail.

Re: Mounted these Voile Hardwire and Madshus Epoch

Re: Mounted these Voile Hardwire and Madshus Epoch

Not sure on the plugs for the heel pad on the hardwires, not put the plugs in on the heels yet,but on the Traverse they went in easily, same heelpads, I think putting the indented side facing the end of the ski seemed to help on the Traverse heelpad

Re: Karhu pieces of history. Any interrest?

Hmm, downhill skis, don't overly have anything wide, but I guess when I get to that point I could have them all ready, lol
