Re: OMG TTS Question

You would be close to or at bottom front position but ski will bend a bit after spring bottoms and knee can contact ski. I think you will feel the bottom. You never really want to go past horizontal shin really so this would be an extreme condition. jasonq is an engineer and experimenter on backcoun...

Re: OMG TTS Question

You are correct. My lisdexia was kicking in. The closer the pivot is to the tech pins the less active. Vertical distance affects the activity differently from horizontal too. Roughly “2mm of horizontal change is like 1mm of vertical.” Dostie explains it here https://www.telemarkskier.com/tele-tech-c...

Re: OMG TTS Question

With smaller boot size and red springs you will have full range in any slot. The rear pivot is very very active. Early versions of OMG TTS mounting pattern had a gap between blocks and toe binding but later ones moved it forward as much as toe binding allowed. If you do mostly alpine turns that is f...

Re: OMG TTS Question

My experience is no doubt tempered by being light 130#, shortish 5'8, old 74 and not very aggressive. I will ski almost anything but at my pace. Rodbelen- Your question about boot size is certainly relevant as spring extension is somewhat limited. I find the spring preload strongly affects the relea...

Re: OMG TTS Question

Mondo 25.5 but I have 2 pairs of boots with different sole length. My TXPros are 299 and Defenders are 307. A few turns on the springs and I can switch boots np. TXPs have Intuition wrap liners and the Defenders the orig lace up hut boot liner. I'm loving the Defenders these days despite the lower p...

Re: OMG TTS Question

I jumped onto the OMG binding when it was in beta version 2 (2 3 position blocks) which was before they came out with their toe. At the time the SkiTrab Race was on offer so I opted for that. My boots were and are the orange TXPros and I had a try of the then new NTN bindings which I immediately hat...

Re: Asolo Telebreeze: did anybody ski a pair? review?

Those were my first plastic boots and as I was learning and probably falling every turn I can't really say anything about the quality of the skiing experience. Mine and everyone else's I knew did fail at the bellows and one buddy even had the boot come apart at the hinge and take off with the ski. C...

Re: can't get parallel

Great tips and direction in this thread! I'd like to add one exercise that I do regularly to tune myself up especially if I hear my inside ski "clack" against the outside ski. For me this usually happens on turns to my right when I am tired. On a low angle, wide slope start linking some large radius...
