Re: NTN: Rottefella Freeride versus 22 Designs Outlaw Review

WHAT ARE RED STARS LIKE? dimensions? Interesting review. Never skied the Outlaws, hope to try this season. I have Freeride on Kneissl Red Star RC 178cm piste skis which I use for piste instruction (receiving !), training and GS racing. And Freedom on Salomon Q98 180cm all mountain skis. Don't tour w...

Is there a list of all the XCD and Versatile skis and their traits?

Seems like these are growing high-interest and also confusing categories of skis where a list of models traits would be helpful. And, yes, model years because they seem to significantly change in traits sometimes. I'm thinking of skis ranging in widths from 50-80, say. With all the variants of cambe...

Anyone have Rossi TRS 200cm to unload?

I have 210 Rossi TRS. Too long for having fun my oldtime way. I used to have 205 and they fit the bumps just right. I'm thinking that today I'd want 200cm. So I do! Do you have any that you're not using? I'd buy, ship, etc. Let me know! Thx, JP

Vtg Kneissl Red Star: single camber?

Any chance old Kneissl Red Stars are a comparable replacement for Rossi TRS? I need some Rossi TRS 200cm but I can only find these Kneissl. Are they close enough?

Re: Peltonen Metsa Step Ski Review Metsäsukset

Most xc turns are swing step of some kind. We're not horsing the skis around and only some turns are downhill. Swing-tail or swing-tip. Skate or step. We can do the same w the Metsa but the radius will be wider. Just can't make as tight of a turn. Suitable for open areas. Like snowshoes but with hon...

Re: XCD: What's up with weight range?

Maybe we know each other! I'll get my name into my profile/sig if it's not there now. Jeff Potter. Rik says the Trans ski is great. And the Asnes too. We'll see what I can come up with. I might get a real job soon and go hog wild... I've used race skis in the technical stuff. No go. And I can handle...

XCD: What's up with weight range?

I have Fischer Spiders. 180cm. Got em from a friend. The size chart says 150-200 lbs is the fit range! What the heck? That's basically everybody. What is the takeaway here? That such skis fit by your height not your weight? Are we back to oldtime sizing? Where any length ski will supposedly fit any ...

Re: Do ya think US is biggest XC market?

bump. ... the reason i asked if ppl thought or knew if US was a big xc market is that i've heard two diverging views on it from experts. one was that the trade doesn't do PR in the US because we're not worth it. another is that we're the biggest market. maybe those 2 views can coexist: maybe the bul...

any sweet tele bumperstickers?

is anyone making/selling the "pinhead from hell" as a bumpersticker?

i'm interested in a white vinyl car-window sticker just w a tele skier graphic. no words.

i see there's a decent oval sticker w "tele" and a skier image. but i want a white graphic, not black. i'd cut it out of the oval anyway.
