Re: "The Bleeding Edge" of boot progress...

f I had any kind of motivation or faith in the ski industry I'd team up with a few other engineers and get a startup going and design shit like this, but honestly, y'all are too sketchy for me. And what is the motivation? To serve a few diehards who refuse to go to AT? Why does it need to be lighte...

Re: The FEEEL between rod/cartridge and compression springs.

Boots were the big adjustment for me followed by fat skis. Bindings were never a problem, except HH set less than 3.

I tour with SBs and SBX2s, mostly K&G with wax and I find the X2s to limit my ROM. I almost never tour in free pivot unless I am skinning.

Re: The FEEEL between rod/cartridge and compression springs.

Above all, keep on skiing! New/different stuff always takes a little time to get used to. And telemark is largely about being stubborn enough to stick with it. That's good advice Mainer, but I'll bet you 20 bucks it's the skis. Just kidding, but I don't remember people having that problem with the ...

Re: The FEEEL between rod/cartridge and compression springs.

The ski might be too big Woods. I've had skis too big and couldn't get weight on the rear foot on hard pack. They were great in the powder but I paralleled the groomer to the lift. With T4s and if you aren't a big guy I can see you having a problem. If you could try a 170 it might work. I actually r...

I've never skied the nnn-bc system but I don't think the touring efficiency would make that big of a difference on your 2.5 mile ski in deep snow. You have to consider that you have one of the biggest xcd skis out there, and big skis need a bigger boot generally speaking. If you have a desire to lea...

Re: New Posts All Forums:Forum Nav: Rossignol BC 125: 165 length too short for 5'-11" & 150 pound guy?

One thing I would be concerned with a big ski like that is tracking. I have found that with too light of a boot on a wide ski on packed conditions can create problems getting the skis to go straight to the point of the skis washing out to the side. The three pin would leave the option open to use a ...

Re: Breakable crust *XC

I'm very familiar with that canoe route but am unaware of any cabins there. Did you ski in from Swanson River Rd. and is the cabin in the Refuge?

Re: Breakable crust *XC

funny thing, last month when I was back East I did a lot of off trail hiking. I went through a lot of swamps and bogs and wondered if they were skiable because of the low brush. I guess anrother answered my question. Anrother, was there a summer trail to get to that cabin? those kind of areas are us...

Re: Breakable crust *XC

That may have been a situation calling for snowshoes, sometimes it just plain sucks and turns into a character builder.
