Re: Asnes Mountain Tour 51

Sounds like a great plan! Are you located in US? I was wondering how to order the MT51s because Neptune does not appear to carry them. Is it better to order from Varuste than direct from Asnes?

Re: Asnes Mountain Tour 51

Many thanks Woodserson for the detailed feedback on what the MT51s are best suited for. I’m still learning the finer points on shape, rocker, etc. Even with the step waddle-waddle turns :lol: , do you find the MT51s are generally more stable on the downhills than your tracks skis because of the extr...

Re: Asnes Mountain Tour 51

I’m eyeballing the MT51s for steel edge skinnies 50/50 track/off-track, but just wondering about the camber. Is the camber full-blown 2x like a track ski? Or reduced to 1.5? I would prefer a reduced camber for some of the steeper downhills that I face (defintely not my strength :oops: ). By comparis...

Re: NNN vs NNN-BC on 50ish waisted XC touring skis

You’ve done it now Johnny. I was thinking about replacing my crappy Fischer OTC 5 boot with Alfas based on one of your reviews, but now I’m definitely doing it for the sake of the skinnies!

Re: NNN vs NNN-BC on 50ish waisted XC touring skis

Many thanks for the follow up. That is good tip on the combi boots. It makes sense that the increased ankle support would provide more control. My skate boots crush my classic ones for lateral control. For that same 60/40 split on-track / off-track split, how would combi boot/NNN stack up against NN...

Re: NNN vs NNN-BC on 50ish waisted XC touring skis

Greetings all. First post here after lurking for the last 2 years. Reviving this thread from last year rather than starting a new one. I have been thinking the same about mounting NNN-BC on 50-ish waist for A mix of track and off-track, but have question. Does the wider NNN-BC binding binding and bo...
