Re: Crispi Evo Tongue buckling

Can someone send me photos of their Evo’s buckled up on their feet? Here are my boots, the right worse than the left. This model has a lot of volume above the arch of the foot, in my case i reduce that volume a lot with the buckle that produces that fold, it's proably the reason why this happens. I...

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

I think there are good choices on both standards in terms of performance. There are perhaps not si much overlaps between them in terms of activity, which is probably why the perception is that NTN offers better performance. But in my experience Axls and Meidjo offer a good range of adjustability for...

Re: Crispi Evo Tongue buckling

Mine does the same. It gets more wet from the inside than from the outside so i don’t mind... Keep it, NTN boots with the binding heel piece are rare, they should have a good reselling price.

Re: 7TM preload and DIN

Readjust the preload after a couple runs, the boot will fit
Into the toe piece. First time only, but very significant.

Re: lead change question

Probably the reason why monomark turns help is that they eliminate the focus on lead change and allow you to ski more based on managing the energy from turn to turn. When you focus too much on the lead change you tend to visualize the turn as a sequence of positions or movements that produce the tur...

Re: Neutral vs. Active Bindings

I switched from 7tm to AXL and shortly after to Meidjo 2.1. The first change also included wider skis (Voile V6). It felt very nice but not a dramatic change, it just felt more solid and easier to ski. But then after a season or so i used again my Scottybobs (HeadRush) with 7TMs and i felt totally m...

For me, the tele turn is a soft-snow turn
+1
That’s where it shines
It’s like the feeling when you release an AT binding heel after a day of alpine skiing, or remove an alpine boot. But all day long. But on hard pack big part of that softness is lost.

Re: When to Drop a Knee

I am surprised by how much I use my quads in every single tele turn compared to alpine turns. Three factors here - Technique: as it probably happened when you learned alpine, you did burn more muscles at the beginning. When you get to ski more relaxed and use more the skeleton than the muscles, it ...

Re: When to Drop a Knee

Is there any clear technical advantage to a tele turn? I think it is fun and it is neat to have one more way to play around on the hill so I am going to keep it up. I am wondering if there is more that I am missing? No technical advantage. It takes considerable time and effort to learn a good techn...
