Perhaps the reason I like my FT downhill is the 3-pin cable bindings and my Alico Ski March boots. I don’t think I could do the same in my Alaska BC
Maybe you need a second pair of FT62 w/ NNN-BC just to double check? This is the Asnes FEVER thread afterall. lol.

Be safe!

Re: Rossignol BC X-12 Boots, My Review

I now have the Rossi BC X-6, X-10 and X-12 boots. I see a lot of people dismissing the Rossi boots as too soft for turns after only trying the 6 - and that one is indeed quite soft, giving great kick and glide in the flats with something like my Fischer E99s. Not a turner at all! But the progressio...

Re: Boot Review: 2018 Crispi Svartisen BC

You are right, but having them installed by a cobbler should be a breeze. They need the work anyways these days. Be careful out there.

Re: Åsnes Borge Ousland BC Ski Review

I am still a bit confused by the geometry of this ski- what is the advantage of that much tip rocker on a narrow, straight, stiff and cambered ski? Borge Ousland is a polar explorer. This ski came out just before his last North Pole traverse with Mike Horn. Maybe it was specifically designed for hi...

Re: NNN BC - ski width

The NN-BC plate only provides good contact between the heel and the binding when the heel is fully compressed (flat). The cable adds more rigidity to the boot/binding complex AND actively pulls the heel back down, helping you keep that heel compressed on the ski. So, like I said in the beginning, in...

Re: NNN BC - ski width

What I've found is that with plastic boots, even something as soft and touring oriented as the Scott Excursion, the cable in the Voile 3-Pin Cable binding does not make much difference. The plastic boot provides good torsional rigidity, and the cable doesn't add enough stiffness to be much noticeab...

Re: NNN BC - ski width

The only thing I don't understand is the function of the cable when the turns are parallel. That's why I am asking for help. It will stiffen up the boot/binding complex. Provide you with more lateral stiffness, more power. Remember you Rossi X12 sole is rubber. You'll have to try it out. If you don...
