Johnny, Tom,
Thanks a lot for all the advice !

You can order them at TelemarkDown and return them if they don't fit... They are very cool, and also the NA distributor for Crispi. Or closer, Mario in Bromont has World Cups in stock since yesterday.


I was planning to order Crispi boots from Telemarkdown once I had a chance to try them. I know you can return them if they don't fit but that would mean paying twice for the shipping (which is amount 55$ one way since I'm from Montreal, Canada). Who is Mario in Bromont ? Are you talking Bromont in Quebec ?

Can't wait to try my new set up !! I hope we have a good winter with lot's of snow !!

Yep, Bromont QC... I can't think of any other Bromont anywhere else on the planet? 8-)

Mario is sort of an underground Scarpa, Crispi, Rottefella and 22D distributor... (Dynastar and Goode too...) Tell him Johnny from TelemarkTalk sent you... ;)

You can order from TelemarkDown and have the boots shipped in Richford VT and pick them up there... It's just five minutes from the QC border... Shipping is only 10$ down there... PM me for details... I'm in Sutton if you wanna try the Comps or the World Cups...

Mario Filion de Filion sport... C'est le représentant Scarpa pour l'Est. Il semble aussi distribuer Crispi selon un des posts précédents...

Be aware the Outlaw and OutlawX aren’t really step in either if you value ski brakes. The brakes on the Outlaw are hard to use and balky with other problems. The people I’ve met using them to prefer to use the Outlaw with leases because they were constantly dealing with brake issues that required bending over anyway. If you can get the brakes to work or use leashes, the Outlaws have true step-in otherwise.

Just for comparison since you’re not a Rotte fan, the NTN Freedom work out to be fully step-in because I use them like TomH describes. Also the Freedom brakes work easily and flawlessly. When I saw on youTube how ppl close the Freedom toe latches with the boot toe, and then the other ski, I thought it might be a tricky skill to learn but it worked easily first time I tried it and my wife learned it just as quickly.

Highly recommending NTN. The Freedoms have been great.
