Re: Safety Gear

Black Diamond kneepads are light and nice but a pain to put on and off for yoyoing. Voile's have the clip that makes it easier but they seem bulkier. I've never used them though. I like the idea of using MTB kneepads. Most MTB pads are very comfortable nowadays, no need to take them off for climbin...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Verskis you are much wiser than me. Light touring skis just get deflected too much by heavy, chopped up, refrozen, tilled, and granular snow. On the other hand heavier, stiffer, skis more suited for resort snow wouldn't be nearly as pleasant in the backcountry. Being hard headed, I refused to ackno...

Re: Safety Gear

I use G-Forms and POC VPD 2.0s for mountain biking and skiing. G-forms are not that protective, but they are thin and comfortable, while the POCs are much more heavy duty but still pretty comfortable. POCs are very expensive but they will probably last much, much longer than the G-forms, as the thin...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

So- I just looked at the map of Finland. What's the climate like where you ski? And- is the deep soft snow you have very cold, dry and fluffy? Doesn't Finland have a much colder, more continental climate than Scandanavia? Northern and eastern parts of Finland have continental climate, with colder t...

I have the Eon Wax.

Sorry! I didn't get that impression, nor did I mean to suggest that!

No problem at all!

Ha! I may even need some Salmiakkikossu (basicly vodka flavored with salmiakki) to overcome that!

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

Wish Asnes would send you an Ingstad BC :idea: to compare against your Rabb 68...I am starting to think that it might be what you are looking for... That would be awesome :D If the Ingstad performed at least as well on harder snow and also better on the soft snow than my Eons, they could replace th...

Re: Tele fail

I don't want to hit my bare head on a tree, therefore I use a helmet all the time. Plus, it makes a good mounting point for a light, as I mostly ski in the dark. I also wear knee pads most of the time. But you can wear more or less protection than I do, I'm not going to preach that my way is the onl...

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Now i see johnny is claiming the Rabb68 to be the perfect ski for everything. I wonder how the FT62 compares to the Rabb68 in terms of tourability. Verskis' reports on the Rabb 68 suggest that its XC performance is very similar to the Storetind: -Acceptable in deep soft snow. -Dead and "squirr...

Re: Falketind 62 Review

Going downhill, what do you feel is the difference between the 62 and 68 (except float). Please remember that I have a Storetind Carbon- not a Rabb 68: - Storetind is wider and more stable - Storetind is stiffer and more powerful ski- IMO needs a Telemark boot and binding to really take advantage o...
