Re: Favorite Ski Meets Favorite Binding

I used to ski Riva’s. My only complaint with them was the fact that the cable, which ran around the front of the toe piece would work itself under the toe piece due to pressure. Mine did this half way through a ski week at Rudi Berlinger’s. I was not happy! The solution was to epoxy round the front,...

Re: Salomon QST 99 mounting

I’m the same height as you and have the 174’s mounted boot centre on the ski’s boot centre line. They ski great with the Scarpa TX and TX Pro. You’ll have a ball!

Re: Rotte 3 pin heel pad

Yes, it’s the newer 100% plastic one. I guess I’ll drill a hole for the protruding piece. My binding was the last one in stock at MEC in Vancouver and didn’t come with any instructions. Did you manage to tap it into place with a hammer Ben or did it require manoeuvring?

Rotte 3 pin heel pad

I just mounted up some Super Telemarks, but the heel pad is giving me a feeling of frustration. How the heck do you attach the small plate covering the screws after the heel piece is screwed on? I checked on line for videos/advice without any luck. I tried levering the tiny clips at the sides into p...

Re: Pomoca Race Roll

I have been thinking the same thing Jalp. I have a pair of Atomic Aspects, 85mm underfoot, and was thinking I might have a go at cutting down one of my older pairs of skins to create a skin skin for mellow touring. My concern is that the skin will peel off at the front due to friction. I guess I cou...

Re: Alico Ski March Boot

Thanks phoenix, I thought it was just me :) . Anyway, I've given up on trying to make them fit the Spikes and am using it as an excuse to buy another pair of skis, on which I'll mount some Rottefella Super Telemarks. I did try the Alico Marches on a pair of my wife's skis which have Voile 3 pins and...

Re: Telemark Tech Bindings - looking for a little insight

I have two skis with tele tech systems, as well as two pairs of skis with Meidjo. The main motivation for trying the tele tech bindings was snow build up with the Meidjos in warm snow conditions. SWBC gets a lot of that. In terms of skiability the Meidjos win hands down - the lateral stiffness (part...

Re: Elan Ripstick 86

Woods are you sure Atomic and Elan come out of the same factory. My understanding was that Atomics were still made in Austria, following their purchase by Amer Group, who also make Salomon skis (one of their other brands) in the same factory. It would seem that Elan skis are still made in Slovenia a...
