Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

I have no interest in heavy or expensive tele gear. I just want to XC on wider skis in steeper terrain. The ALFA Guards are 385$... If a NTN version ever sees the light of day, I doubt it will be cheaper... 8-) In the meantime, NNN-BC is your best friend... but why stick with leather? Because for p...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

Even better, imagine your favorite heavy-duty leather boots modded with 2 pins. And imagine your favorite tech toes at around 80g. Now just add a little mod to add a simple flexor, soft, hard or medium, your choice. For under 100g, you have the ULTIMATE XCd binding... Yes, for under 100g ! Almost ha...

My Norwegian welted boots about 1000g each. My Varg boots are even lighter. :geek:
Nice! Now imagine them with 2 pins instead of 3! :o :o :o

That's a good idea and would be nice on a T4 type boot.
It's been here for over 10 years... It's called a Crispi Shiver NTN.

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

Would a Tech toe and leathers provide the lightweight performance of nnnbc but with enough control for wider skis? Who wouldn't want that!!! Would a lighter touring version without springs in the plate make sense? How much control is there when just using tech toe touring? Enough leverage and power...

Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

People always laughed at me. No matter what I say or do, it has always been that way. Being the 1% minority with different views on the world is not always easy. I still remember how people made fun of me when I first talked about having NTN leather shoes. Ok, that was funny, floppy shoes in a 4lbs ...

Re: A new NTN Binding from The M!

Rod my dear friend... You have not the slightest idea of all the fun you are missing... 8-) My guess is that you are still communicating with a pager and a fax machine? Still listening to Wham and Lara Fabian on cassette? Watching Lance et Compte and Du Tac au Tac on VHS? Smoking king size DuMaurier...

Re: Gear Basket

Hi,

I double checked this situation and there are few lucky ones who have succeeded in ordering skis for the US.
Reason is missing size information from our systems + mistake in our warehouse + error for delivery company's systems.

Re: A new NTN Binding from The M!

The introduction of the NTN standard divided the telemark community because the products required a change in technique. In 2014, The M Equipment had introduced on the market a new product called MEIDJO which, while using shoes with the NTN standard, makes it possible to rediscover the sensations o...
