Re: Bonna 2400

Absolutely beautiful Jalp! :o :o :o The Troll traps are ok... I still use them with the Alaskas on my woodies... I personally hate the Choinard pins. I find them hard to step in and out. Black, classic SuperTeles would look very nice if the Trolls don't fit your boots... And oh... Please, if your wi...

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

Dear Ben, don't you remember the old NTN ads here on the old forum?
As I keep saying, it's not free-heel until you cut the cables...! 8-)

Re: The new Rottefella Back Country binding system

Me like.. Rottefella if you are listening please put the bumper on a pivot or make it movable forward to allow full free pivot. Even better make the movement forward in steps for variable resistance. Although simply being able to flip it forward on a pivot would be simpler mechanically and likely m...

Re: The new Rottefella Back Country binding system

Very promising binding, for several reasons... So sad it didn't make the 2019-2020 katalog. But hey, remember, it's called the Rottefella Backcountry Binding System ... My guess is that they got sued by Backcountry.com... :lol: Expensive? It doesn't have to be. No matter if it's XC, Telemark, pins o...

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

There is no turning back once you find the secret of NNN Downhill. All you need is to refine your technique and your heels will be free for real... For life... I haven't used cable in years, no matter the terrain...

Please share your NNN adventures here... And keep those vids coming! 8-)

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

Very nice boots! They look pretty stiff... I went from Alaska 75s to Alaska BCs... And for me it was night and day... I now only use the 75's for light XCing, and keep the BCs for pure downhill action. Well, to be honest, since last season, I use the new Alfa Guard Advance for almost everything... B...

Re: Karhu Guide / Madshus Annum + NNN BC ?!

There was a time when my old Guides and my Alpina Alaska 75s were my favorite backcountry tools. They were #1 for me. I honestly and naively thought pins were the best. Then one day, the normal evolution of the intelligent telemark skier (read: the ski Gods) made me upgrade the old Karhu Guides to N...

Re: Buying Asnes skis...

My day job is in purchasing so when one vendor is unresponsive, I buy from one that is. Exactly. This is 2019. A business who doesn't care to answer their customers is simply not worth buying from. ALERT! ALERT! AWWOOOOOOOGGGAAAAAA Rabbs and Tindans on SPORT ALBERT! Start freaking out!!! https://ww...

Re: Ultralight ntn boots... path forward

I'm done with Crispi too... For many different reasons...
After two pairs of WC's, I'm back to yet another pair of TX Comps and I couldn't be happier with it... 8-)

I'd really like to try the upcoming Evo BC though... If it ever sees the light of day...

Re: Powder Tips

Faceplants are part of the learning process my friend! 8-) Try to put pressure down on the ball of foot only, not just throwing your leg in the back... Try to visualize this mentally while skiing. The idea is to put pressure down on the ski where the binding is mounted to distribute the weight evenl...
