Re: Wildly speculative talk about Asnes 21-22 lineup: Otto/FT62

The video says it gets a "double camber and moderate wax pocket" Personally, I think it's a very bad idea. Because if they change the camber, they will become like a lot of other similar skis on the market. Just like any other ordinary ski. The reason why the Falkees are so unique is because of the...

Alpina Alaska XP XPlore Boot review

Alpina Alaska XP XPlore Boot.jpg Don't get fooled by the name. The new Alaska XP is NOT simply an XPLORE version of the old orangees . Quite the opposite. It's A LOT more than this, it's a totally different boot! A totally new boot in the Alpina family. The Alaska we have here has not been updated ...

Alpina Pioneer 80 XPlore Ski Review

Alpina Pioneer 80 Ski Rottefella XPlore review.jpg The Pioneer 80 is Alpina's next year's all-terrain backcountry ski. But I was lucky enough to receive a pair of 196cm in the mail! Woaaah! Of course I had already seen the picture on the web a few weeks before, and I remember my very first impressi...

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Thanks Rod, now that I'm officially retired my job and main focus is to have as much fun as possible. 10-12 years from now and I'll join your club! I officially retired several years ago, and it's the best move I ever done. Working is sooooo out of fashion...! Biking until I hit snow, then putting ...

Re: Alpina Discovery 102

My review was 5 years ago... It was the first generation of Discoveries... I heard rumors that the latest Discovery 102 is quite different from the first ones. Mostly being much lighter and having a nice rocker... Nathaniel, can you confirm this?

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding System Review

The Xplore is not intended to be a Telemark binding- not in the modern sense. The XPlore is intended to be whatever you want it to be, according to the available options. The XPlore IS a pure, downhill telemark binding. It is also a pure, classic XC binding. It is also a XC skating binding. It is a...

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding System Review

Good to hear! If you are able to give Rottefella feedback, please ask about slots for ski crampons. In icy conditions, they are a godsend and it does seem easy to to hack in a crampon slot on that binding. Also is there any possibilities/rumors for (boot) climbing crampons in the xplore system. Reg...

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding System Review

Do you know what ski this system would be fantastic on? A pair of Dynafit Cho Oyu's. Those skis are legit one of the best cross-over XCD skis I've seen. My friend has a pair-- he had leather boots, I gave him some Voile bindings... They sure would be awesome! But you are bringing a very important p...

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding System Review

I only have been able to source black and red flexors. Is the Xplore going to use the same color system for their flexors? Are the white X flexors as stiff as the NNN-BC flexors? Also, do you have any spare white NNN-BC flexors? I've never skied the whites. I used to buy mine at Akers and Nordic Sk...

Re: The new Rottefella XPLORE OFFTRACK Binding System Review

an outrageously stiff flexor to overcome the leverage that a plastic boot is going to generate. Called a "white flexor" in tele lingo... I don't see this as being a T4 replacement, that's not going to happen. (unless they add cables :twisted: ) I think the last time I used cables was in 2013... I h...
