Re: Stiffer Boot for Xplore

Capercaillie Did you use a toe cap when you baked your liners? If you did, that’s all I have to offer. If not, and for all other baking novices, myself included. Here is a link to some good instruction and some fitting supplies from Intuition: https://intuitionliners.com/home-fitting/ BTW Capercail...

Re: XCD Skis for Midwest Terrain

timpete I find the Falketind X gives acceptable for me XC performance. I use it in some hilly terrain because in some of the hilly terrain I ski the trails are two track wide and I can drop a knee on all the downhills. I really enjoy dropping a knee and making turns. There is even a steep twisty do...

Re: Stiffer Boot for Xplore

JohnSKepler I’m think you may have seen this, but I encourage you you look again a Johnny’s report on Xplore boots. It is very spot on, in regards to boots I know. Perhaps the easy button is to follow Johnny’s advice. I mean the man can ski, and he demos lots of equipment! https://www.telemarktalk....

Re: XCD Skis for Midwest Terrain

I’m in Michigan. Similar conditions. Have had an S-112, was not impressed. That was a long time ago, it appears from recent reviews of the S-98, they have improved. I would take one for a loaner and try it if someone gave it to me. Sorry, just my honest opinion. My ski for XCD is the Asnes Falketind...

Re: Stiffer Boot for Xplore

Hey, JohnSKepler Didn’t you buy an F-1? I’m just saying for the Objective, it’s light, great ROM, it will take a while to break in. If you don’t like the F-1, let me know what size, I wouldn’t mind a second pair. Well, mine are F-1 Race, I wouldn’t mind at all having a “stiff” pair with a tongue! I ...

Re: Worth it to wait for new Tx Pro?

The main benefits of the new boot is lighter weight, but the significant improvement is the range of motion of the cuff for touring. The boot has been reported to have a cuff stiffness in ski mode more similar to the TX Comp rather than the TX Pro. The bellows is reportedly on the softer side. These...

Re: Style

I agree with LAA, but will add that you can really see him weight the lead foot more with his heel. It could be his style or perhaps his style and the flex of the ski. I agree that the boot is probably stiff, as well as the binding. I see exactly what you are talking about Stephen, in regards to the...

Re: best ski for snowmachine trails, mixed classic/skate

John_XCD i was thinking about a shorter Gamme, but I think you are probably spot on with the Amundsen. Why don’t you post your height and weight? Hopefully lilcliffy will respond. He has experience with the Amundsen, he has a family of Nordic skiers and may have experience with a shorter Amundsen a...

Re: best ski for snowmachine trails, mixed classic/skate

I have a Gamme in 210, and an Asnes MT 51 in 210 which I use for thin cover. The only thing the Gamme doesn’t do far better is fit in tracks Don’t discount what full steel edges will do for tracking on a snowmobile track. I would also surmise a steel edged Gamme turns better than a ski without edges...

Re: any tips on 3 pins mounted to alpine ski?

I would mount boot center, to the boot center mark on the ski. To measure where boot center on the boot, I measure from the boot heel to the pin line in mm and divide by 2. I then mark pin line that distance from the boot center mark. Be sure to measure from the tail of the ski to the boot center ma...
