Re: WTB: Tele boots, 75mm, mondo size 27, 27.5 or 28

If you want good leather, Ebay UK is selling Alico military spec boots for under £20. Even with shipping, it will probably be max $100 CDN. Several here have bought them.

UK Army Exercise Telemark Titan 2018

Hello all Telemarkers - and putative Telemarkers. Apologies for a long post! Hopefully worth reading, especially for those based in GB. I am recently back from the UK Army Winter Sports Association event Exercise Telemark Titan 2018. It is an amazing 11 day combination of telemark instruction and ra...

Re: NTN: Rottefella Freeride versus 22 Designs Outlaw Review

Interesting review. Never skied the Outlaws, hope to try this season. I have Freeride on Kneissl Red Star RC 178cm piste skis which I use for piste instruction (receiving !), training and GS racing. And Freedom on Salomon Q98 180cm all mountain skis. Don't tour with the Freeride, so tour mode is tap...

Re: Scott Voodoo NTN 2017 vs 2018

Thanks. Scott have finally confirmed that the boot is the same apart from the removal of the heel technical insert. Anyway, what is the verdict on boot life? My blue /green Voodoo have done 50 weeks and the liners are getting well compressed. But what about the shell? Physically in OK condition but ...

Re: Tele vs parallel.

In UK we call mono turns "snurfing" ! Great balance training, especially down a GS course. As a late convert to tele from alpine, I use alpine turns mainly when my legs are tired. The tele skiing sensation is just too good to miss! Last winter did a lot of work on bumps and now great doing...

Scott Voodoo NTN 2017 vs 2018

Anyone know what difference there is between the 2017 and 2018 boot.
From the specs I've found, they seem to be virtually identical.
Think 2018 may have removed the rear tech pin fitting in the heel.
Otherwise both seem to be Pebax etc and 130 flex.

Re: On piste carving ski

I use this on all my racing skis... Cheap and indestructible... 8-) http://g02.a.alicdn.com/kf/HTB19otvKFXXXXXpXFXXq6xXFXXXN/30-20-0-5cm-210g-Plastic-PP-Antibiotic-font-b-Cutting-b-font-font-b-Board.jpg Brilliant use of a chopping board. Would a 20mm riser be about right with NTN Freedom?

Re: On piste carving ski

Thanks for the info.
Could find any 2V, but did find Kniessl Red Star RC, which are flat.
Now I'm thinking of making riser plates as the Freedom bindings sit low on the ski.
Was considering 10mm polyethylene sheet?
What does any one else use?

Re: On piste carving ski

>Just curious... Why would you wanna change bindings on a GS ski? Between NTN and what?

No - to share NTN bindings on Salomon Q90 all mountain to a more piste orientated ski.

On piste carving ski

No sure if this Q is a little out of place on this forum, but here goes anyway. I'm looking for an on piste carving ski for GS and longer turn racing. Needs to be without bindings so I can mount NTN telemark bindings. Length - interesting. In previous long turn races I've used 195cm Sal Lab 2v, but ...
