Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding system

But look at the 3rd picture, behind the Alfa boots. I think we're actually seeing the first picture of the three Alpina boots for the Xplore binding! Ahhh!! VERY GOOD Redmountain!!! I'm glad someone is paying attention... 8-) We obviously see the new Alaska XPLORE in the middle (it actually looks a...

Yep, it's just an old Terminator X...

The TX Pro is pretty much the NTN equivalent of the T2... Super soft, yet offering more control than you will ever need...

The ALFA Appreciation Society

The ALFA fever rate has been pretty high over the last seasons here at TelemarkTalk. Since our reviews of the Guard and Polar boots two years ago, they suddenly became VERY popular. The Guard Advance is now a lot of people's favorite boot. And it's a good thing for XCD skiers. So as promised, dear m...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

Fairytale lands are the fabric of this world... Remember 4lbs NTN in 2006? Pretty sure this is what will happen again. Personally, I sure will start modding the XPLORE and building my own 99g XP-TECH binding as soon as the boots are available... 8-) Bri7 , will your new machine shop ready for the su...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

Obviously the price point and design efforts are drastically different, but if the top skimo bindings are now getting down to 92 grams (per pair!!!) then surely it must be possible to shed some of the 500-ish grams (per pair) off the NNN BC binding.
