Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

Yep, there hasn't been much "progress" in the XCD world in the last decades. The major breakthrough is without a doubt weight reduction. The Objective really was a major breakthrough, and that was only 3 years ago. Hence the reason I was SO excited about it when it came out... The other mo...

Re: The Great North American ASNES FEVER!

IIRC Neptune carries the FT62 but not much bigger from Asnes, definitely never seen their poles there! I moved about 30 minutes from my previous almost-accross-the-street spot so I don't stop in as often. The new owners really went all out though, the place has a coffee bar, climbing wall and three...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

regarding those weight recommendations, my attitude is ignore them and take 210cm every time. I'm 6-2, I have long strides! 25 years ago they would have recommended 215cm for me and 205's for women. I suspect marketing and making people feel comfortable plays a big role in the recommendations. We n...

Re: Asnes Mountain Race 48 SKIN

I'm guessing you got them longer than recommended for your weight. What? Me? Following recommendations?!? You must take me for somebody else, or have gone clean out of your senses... :D I have very, very specific tastes when it comes to skis, mounting location, size, length, uses, colors and flavor...

Re: BC Nordic for The Babies (!?!?)

Although mine is only 3yo, she already has 7 pairs of skis (Which I think is a good age/skis ratio to follow...) BC mostly consists in playing around the house here... More serious than this and it wouldn't be fun... But she had a season pass at the ski resort for 3 seasons now.. And she likes it a ...

Re: Can I screw NNN-BC bindings to NIS plates?

I see no problem in drilling and cannibalizing the NIS plates, they are pretty thin...

The question is, will having kids NNN-BC boots really make a difference over NNN boots? Not sure it's worth the extra work, money and weight...? Do they really make stiffer BC boots for kids?
