That does look like Nordic rocker for sure and it would be neat if they were made like that, but it could have developed from use. I had a pair of Karhu XCD-GTs from the mid eighties that developed it. I took them to the shop in the late nineties and when the tech squeezed the bases together the tip...

Re: The Finest Leathers: Nordic Norm 75mm Backcountry/Telemark Boots

Never say never Kid, I felt the same way until I got some thermomouldable T4s. If I want to go fast and far I have xc skis for that, and they turn too.

Re: The Finest Leathers: Nordic Norm 75mm Backcountry/Telemark Boots

Thanks for that explanation TM. I agree that the stiff camber can create more energy coming out of a turn. This is a good thing because extreme unweighting leads to extreme weighting and that is what you need to get dbl camber skis to turn. That being said I have had skinny alpine skis that gave a s...

Re: Just impulse bought new skis on sale, what do you think of the set up?

You'll notice a lot more responsiveness / edge control with those boots... i.e. smaller movements to make the same turns.
