From looking at the photos the camber profile looks very similar to the Objective- low smooth- flexing single camber, with a full...

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

Re: New OAC XCD GT UC
