Re: Gear Basket

It must be true I read it on the internet :? No seriously, I’m really glad they’re still in business. Out here in Lotus Land we have very few options now for specialist ski stores. Sigges in Kitsilano, for years, was the go-to store for XC skiers with a bit of XCD thrown in and they’re gone. The “or...

Re: Gear Basket

I just got a notification on my Facebook feed that LaCordee in Montreal is going out of business. Some awesome deals there, particularly for you folks south of the border.

Re: The most supportive leather 75mm boots commonly available now?

As Woods says the Rottefella is a smidgen longer than the Voile. When I mounted the Rottefella cable on a Voile Traverse shim I had to grind the pad a bit to get the three pin to fit. The cables/hardwire are very easy to get on and off.

Re: OMG TTS Question

I haven’t skied the OMG TTS specifically, but have a Kreuzspitze and B&D set up, both with Switchback X2 back end and Dynafit radical toes. It’s not hugely different in feel to 75 mm, but you will notice a much superior edge control due to the tech toes.

Re: Best ski/binding setup for mixed terrain

I'm about 140 lbs and ski the 179 SBound 98. I found way less drag in the scales, in XC mode, than my 190 Glittertinds, which were the Madshus recommendation for my weight. Maybe, Fischer has dialled it in.

Re: Circumnavigating Crater Lake March 10th-12th, 2020 on Altai Hok Skis and Pulk Sled

Thanks for that! It looks like an awesome trip and the scenery is a 10. Glad all the gear worked out, were the Hoks a 120 or 145?

I enjoyed the music too from the boys from Leith :D

Re: Another new Rotte binding

I flushed the toilet and it swirled clockwise, so I guess the answer is no.

Re: Another new Rotte binding

Thanks for the info on boot width Ben. The springs are easy to take on and off on the work bench, about as easy as the Hardwire springs that I switch between my TTS set-ups. However, I don’t think I will take the Rotte springs off on a ski trip as I have the 10mm Traverse riser so they can just sit ...

Re: Another new Rotte binding

Just an update. I finally mounted them up. The adjustment problem was because I didn’t remove the spring unit, but tried to spin the spring barrels in place to adjust length. They do detach Cannatonic to answer your question. Here are a couple of photos of the finished set-up. Sorry they’re upside d...
