Re: lacing up the Alaskas

Hey salut Rod, I have 2 pairs of Alaska's in hand, a new one and an old one from 2016. The lacing system on the new one is different and I think its a pain compared to the old one. The first pair of locking eyelets on the old version are closed and on the new version they are open. Its a pain becaus...

Re: MR48- what is it really like on a groomed track?

So with all that- I am wondering if the MR48 has enough camber and stiffness to truly perform on a groomed track? If it does then it is not only all I want on the track it would double as a light-duty off-track ski- plus the extra utility of kicker skin insert during a midwinter rain-refreeze event...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

I'm 160 pounds, 5'10", 188cm is long enough for me.

I say pick 196 if you are skiing in open area where you have room to make big turn. Rolling terrain.

Or 188 if you plan to go down tighter or steeper lines.

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

[img] But maybe the FT62 is just not torsionally stuff enough, period, for harder snow that requires more robust edging. Here's an other opinion on the FT62. My xcd quiver, all mounted NNN BC: -Asnes Mtn race 48 210cm -Fischer e99 tour (wax) 200cm -Fischer Traverse 178cm (gave them to my girlfriend)...

Re: NNN BC Binding Slop

My Alaska BC are 4 years hold, I just tried what you demonstrated in your video. I have the same kind of play, but only when the boot is lifted of the binding tracks. When the tracks are lightly engaged there's no play at all.

I don't know if your boots are old? Maybe your boot soles are worn out?

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Here's a video I did today with my FT62's and Alaska bc. I was a bit all over the place, got kicked around by the hard base hidden under the 5 or 6 inches of snow we got last night. Blue wax did a great job, climbing was a breeze. https://youtu.be/I1EFNk2PQtY Almost lost an arm here at the end, pole...

Re: Falketind 62 Review

(Though you gotta test a Gamme against that E99 Tour! :P ) Probably in the near futur... especially because one of my easyskinz insert on my e99 popped out on a tour and I don't know how it happened. :( And I don't get any response from the online shop I bought them of. Maybe I'll try to contact fi...

Re: Falketind 62 Review

I bought these skis in October and believe it or not, 2 days ago was my first time with them. I wanted to make sure that the snow depth was good enough. Also met Nitram Tocrut for the first time, we did a 13 km trip from top of Mont-Tremblant to the North side base... lot of fun! Capture 2.JPG I'm 5...

I get the sense that no one has asked for a tele binding install for quite a while.
You may well be right...

You could ask a ski patrol at the resort, they probably know the best place to go, many of them are on tele.
