Re: Tech Bindings/Boots for XC

I was wrong in my previous post, it does make contact with the bumper, lightly, on both my NNNBC and NNN bindings/boots. I stand by my assertion that the gripping ski should be unweighted(not gripping) by the time you lift your toes off the ski and activate the bumper. explained at 5:25-5:42 https:/...

Re: The ever-so-popular Madshus Eon

Cool - thanks for the links. I have been putting together an AT setup this winter, almost ready to hit the slopes. Maybe something to think about in the future. Did you find you had to size the boot up for K+G comfort? How is K+G without a bumper at the front of the ski? Seems like it would feel we...

Re: Farmer's Backyard

Those were NNNBC bindings and boots, not AT. Awesome video! Looks like a fun day out.

Re: The ever-so-popular Madshus Eon

Luc Mehl has been using the AT toepiece setup far longer than I and explains the pros/cons pretty well. http://thingstolucat.com/ski-touring-equipment-guide/ The only thing I do different is to take a hole saw to either side of the boots where the bellows on a plastic tele boot would be. I also lea...

Re: Asnes Mohair Short Skin 35mm SkinLock Review

I guess that contradicts what I said earlier on several points. I suppose having more time to think about it has made the cause of the problems more clear.

Re: Asnes Mohair Short Skin 35mm SkinLock Review

I put them on toward the end of the ski for a @400 meter long climb that was too steep for the wax with a trail too narrow to comfortably herringbone with 210's. When I got to the top I left them on just to see if waxing and trimming helped the glide. It did a little. There was some glide, but not m...

Re: Asnes Mohair Short Skin 35mm SkinLock Review

I have mohairs on the way in 35 and 45. Tried the 35 nylon again today, waxed and trimmed to about 12 mm in front of my heel. Just about zero glide on cold, squeaky snow. It was very cold snow though. Even Toko Blue grip wax(-30c to -7c range, air temp was -18c) was gliding slowly. So, conditions th...

Re: Fischer steel light wax ski 47-44-46

Play It Again on Spenard often has used Pellestovas, Voss' and Atomic Mountain BC in waxable versions. All excellent for crust skiing, great on groomed trails or snowmachine trails and would work well enough with a sturdy combi boot. They're all right around 60mm tip with a little bit of sidecut. Th...

Re: Fischer steel light wax ski 47-44-46

I stand corrected! The downhills in those first two videos remind me of triathletes on bikes - obviously very strong on the uphill but give them anything twisty on the down and watch the carnage. When I raced road bikes we called them "try-athletes". The mountain bike version of that are called "di...

Re: Fischer steel light wax ski 47-44-46

Out of curiosity I just decided to weigh my Mountain Race 48 setup. It's at 1774 grams per foot Ski + binding + screws = 900 grams Boot = 874 grams Compared to my similarly sized(49) Rossignol BCX9 at 1043 grams. I'm pretty psyched to see that I took 725 grams off of each boot with my chopping job a...
