Re: Alico Ski March Boot

It seems that I am the only one on this forum without a pair of those boots... Before I do buy them I just want to be sure that they are way stiffer than Alaskas. I kind of think that the Alaskas will be too soft for my new Raab that I will use for tour and turn. But I don't want to commit for eith...

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

Hey Verskis- How much flotation do you need with this ski? Well, when the conditions are warm, the snow tends to be more dense and more supportive, so in that sense I do not need that much floatation. But, when the snow is dense, I tend to have more trouble turning the skis, because the tails seem ...

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

The problem is, Åsnes doesn't make fishscale skis in widths above the Ingstad, and Voile skis are somewhat rare and pricy in Europe. Åsnes is not cheap, either.

This being my "crappy conditions" ski, I would not like to spend too much, but let's see. Voile Objective BC's would be really nice...

Re: New Rossignol BC skis for 2019-2020

I'm incredibly tempted by the BC 100 for a warm snow xcD ski. Currently I do have only waxable skis and some kicker skins, but neither waxing nor skins feel like a good solution for warm snow (soft waxes are minor pain in the ass and not that effective, kicker skins are slow as hell and prone to ici...

Re: Asnes Rabb 68 Ski Review

In a perfect world, I would like to have a ski that tracks straight during the kick and glide on hardpack. I would not even need a very snappy kick, as I am quite happy with the Eons on the hardpacked trails. It's just the wandering of the Rabbs that make them slightly annoying on I suggest you try...

How do you make the holes for the screws in the backcountry?
Do you carry a drill in your pack? :D

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

Damn, I didn't really want to buy any more new skis! The Rabbs were supposed to be the ultimate ski for me :lol:
Now I'll have to see if I can find a good deal on some fishscale skis...


Lilcliffy, the Intelligrip skins are 38mm wide.

Re: wax vs scales vs XSkin vs klister

How would the skins have compared to fishscales if they were available on that ski, in those conditions? I am also really interested in this. I don't have any fishscale skis, but I am thinking that the current conditions might suit them. We have still some snow on the forests, but that is very wet ...

Re: Frankenbindings

Not sure if this quantifies as FrankenBinding or not but it’s working AND giving me peace of mind as I’ve still got a tender ankle from last months misadventure... WonderfulWife gifted me with a set of brand new Telebry release plates. I mounted them (on inserts) with a Voile binding. The cables ar...
