Re: HyperV6 + NNNBC- crazy idea?

I would say don’t mount nnn on the V6. The V6 are not Xc skis and would be difficult to turn with NNN bc and would frankly ruin the skis resale value and simply a joke. Try bombing down a 1200ft run in the backcountry and you will regret ever thinking about putting NNN bc on those skis. Just get a p...

Re: Thinking about new boots, 75mm vs NTN, from my perspective.

My 2 cents. If you are touring tele nothing at this time beats the new T2 eco. They have more ROM than the Tx Pros, lighter, and feel more like soft warm slippers on long tours. Downhill the T2 works very well and have enough power in ski mode with the straps tight. A wrap liner stiffens the T2 Eco ...

Re: I need new skis!

Howdy. Since you weigh less then a tooth pic I’d go with something with softer tips and tails. They will be easier to turn as well. Not entirely sure from that lineup what is the softest flex but I’m sure your local shop can let you know. If you were deciding on Voile skis I would say the V6 ;)

Re: Slightly active bindings: Voile Switchback or X2

Thanks for the advice on modification. I'm running 4mm of gap for the cartridges according to the manual for checking tension when clamping boot on binding. May bump it up to 6mm depending on first ski. Judging by stiffness just flexing into tele position on the carpet it feels like my axl in positi...

Re: Slightly active bindings: Voile Switchback or X2

Installed the new X2 cartridges on my Voile 3 pin hardwires and they went on perfect for my 28 Mondo T2s. Plenty of room to spare for different size boots in my opinion. Feels stiffer from intial playing around on boots. I should be able to test on snow after work this Friday and make some turns.

My X2 spring carts are now on order! Hopefully this experiment works.

Re: Slightly active bindings: Voile Switchback or X2

Well looks like my stock rods will work with the X2 cartridges. https://www.voile.com/voile-hardwire-telemark-binding-rods.html I will order X2 cartridges and report back. My other skis bindings are the Lynx and Axl so I am use to a very active binding. Stiffening up my Hardwires seems like a good e...

Re: Slightly active bindings: Voile Switchback or X2

Check this picture out: 20180527_102332.jpg The right ski has the binding at my 30.5 boot and they mate nice, no problems. The left ski has the rods all the way in, as if it was for a very short boot, and they don't come close to being able to work. The metal connecting piece between the cartridges...

Re: first NTN thoughts- 22 Designs Lynx

Jacko. I have gotten more time on them but honestly I've been skiing my Axls more then the Lynx. I'd wait till the next version comes out. The new version is suppose to have longer springs to deal with claw issues and new toe piece with stronger springs. I do like the lynx and the way it skis. Big p...
