Re: Rottefella Freedom powerbox large vs. small?

I’ve been riding Freedom and Freeride size large bindings with Garmont Prophet 26.0 boots for the last 6 years. I just bought Scarpa TX 26.0 boots, before realizing they use the small version of the binding. Do I have to swap the entire binding now? For Freedom bindings, I think you do need to get ...

Re: The Ultimate XCD Boot: The new Alpina Watermelon DOUBLE!

Those morrow-like liners are pretty much extinct. I suggest you invest in the Pro-Tour and cut of excess if required but I would argue that extral length up top is not a hindrance... How do you seal up the liner again after you cut off the excess? Do you put anything over the molded cut-off top edg...

Re: The Ultimate XCD Boot: The new Alpina Watermelon DOUBLE!

Good leads on low thermo liners, thanks. Of those mentioned, any ideas on which is the thinnest thermo liner you can buy? I have a pair of Rossi BCX-12 that are a size large for me. I'm taking up the space with extra inner-soles but it would be great to do a thinner version of this double-boot hack....

Re: mounting tele bindings on a race plate?

Thanks Johnny and Tom for the views on the plan. ...That is one cool thing about the Freeride vs the Freedom, with the adjustable mounting plates, you can sometimes cheat a bit when screw holes are about the same or the ski is not flat under the plates... That is a good thing about the Freeride. I u...

Where do you get the low cut thermo liners?

(I've been looking for a thermo liner for T4s but only find the taller thermos).

mounting tele bindings on a race plate?

I'm getting ready to mount NTN Freedom bindings on an Atomic removable race plate that fits to a Beta 9.20 from about 2001. The race plate held by four big screws at the toe and four more at the heel. It's a strong plastic race plate that had its alpine binding just screwed into it, no backing nuts ...

Re: Nordic Backcountry / Telemark Boot Size Conversion Charts Depository

Waiting on my new Scarpa T2s to arrive. Im in between sizes. One boot fitter said my old T2 29s were slightly too big even though they feel great and no heel lift and no pains sking for half the day. Gonna take the boot fitters advice and give the 28s a whirl since the 28.5 is the same shell size a...

Drafting in ski racing?

Question about drafting in skate ski racing. At the speeds used in the sprint relay, I could see drafting being some advantage. But perhaps skis and skiing keeps a skier from following closely enough to get any actual draft effect. Added to this the shape of a standing human is not very conducive to...

Re: Us gold medal

J. Deggins attacked on one of her laps and dropped the Swiss, leaving three for the medals. Then later was clearly just not willing to settle for less than gold even though Sweden and Norway skiers had moved a bit ahead. Her sprint was amazing to see. The Norwegian skier congratulating them after th...
