Re: New Posts All Forums:Forum Nav: Rossignol BC 125: 165 length too short for 5'-11" & 150 pound guy?

Sounds like you definitely need a longer 1550... I don't know if it is safe to assume that a 43EU 1550 has the same footbed length as a 43EU Alaska... I would hope so- Euro sizes are "supposed" to be consistent- but I have had some experiences with Rossi NNN boots that did not have consist...

I may not be using the correct terminology- but I am referring to the primary flex point on the sole of the foot- the flex point at the "ball-of-foot"- where the metatarsal bones flex at your toes (or "phalanges"). Nordic skiing is fundamentally based on the boot and binding allo...

I own this exact boot in a size 43EU. To date- it is the most supportive XC boot I have ever tested. It is also warm- but it does not breathe at all- I would reluctant to take it on a multi-day trek- I don't know how I would keep them dry... I cannot use these boots anymore because the tough synthet...

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

If you guys would be nearer, we could start a community tele quiver... We could buy all the new skis coming out every year and share them together. All my skis would be available for everyone, and so all of yours etc... You could use my Objectives and my woodies, I could use your Tinds, your OAC XC...

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

Almost positive that I saw them on the Neptune website at one point last season- before they went down. I wouldn't be surprised to see a few Tinds in this year's stock... From looking at the photos the camber profile looks very similar to the Objective- low smooth- flexing single camber, with a full...

Re: Asnes Tind 76 / 85

Yeah- they make me drool and my feet itch...(same feeling as looking at the Objectives BTW) I do know that you can order and have them shipped from Oslo Sportslager: https://www.oslosportslager.no/produkt/asnes-tind-85-toppturski-1617-41474.aspx And- BTW- they seem to have the weight posted accurate...

Re: Help A Northeastern Trail Runner & Backpacker Build His First Nordic Backcountry Set-Up!

Very important perspective Cannatonic! Your early piece of advice still stands soundly- find the boot first- then the binding. Having poorly fitting boots is not only miserable- and of course, can lead to long-term injury- it can also be downright dangerous in the backcountry. Full leather boots wi...

Re: OAC XCD 160 and XCD GT UC Skis

Quick comparisons (UPDATED)- this is reportedly the weight of a single ski without bindings: Voile Objective BC 164cm (112-80-97mm): 0.950kg (2.094 lbs) Asnes Tind 76 164cm (111-76-98mm): 1.030kg (2.271 lbs) OAC XCD GT 160cm (116-86-100mm): 1.050kg (2.314 lbs) Asnes Tind 85 167cm (118-85-103mm): 1.1...
