Re: Fischer E89 Crown

Just what I expected...I have not tried the current E89...but the current Fischer Backcountry line is much stiffer than the Madshus: Voss versus E89; Glittertind versus E99; Eon versus E109 (even though the Eon doesn't really fit this group)... I think you are right. The Madshus design is much more ...

NNNBC-Magnum

I suppose that I should perhaps consider not giving my review of the NNNBC binding. Having done a little leisurely reading- it appears that NNNBC versus 3 pin-75mm NN can spark much heated debate. There is no question that the 75mm binding is more versatile- ranging from classic xcountry to big moun...

Re: Long winded Fischer S Bound 78

Great review man.

What are your thoughts on camber? Do you think the S-78 is anywhere near as cambered as the double-cambered Fischer Country?

Re: Fischer E89 Crown

What did the tips/tails feel like? Rigid and stiff or soft flexing like the Glittertinds?

Re: Fischer S Bound 98 and Madshus Epoch

Woodserson- also interested in your perspective on the S-78. Pretty sure that this is the narrowest single-cambered xcountry ski on the North American market? Please consider submitting a review in the gear review section! Just a suggestion- if you are truly looking for a powder ski- take a look at ...

Re: Alpina Alaska NNNBC

My understanding is that the Alpina 1550 and the 1600 (they have the same sole/last) have a softer flex than the Alaska. Here's some info I got from Alpina regarding the 1600- compared to the Alaska: Hello mr. Gareth Here below are the answers to your questions: 1. The boot is made in Europe. Uppers...

Re: Alpina Alaska NNNBC

Hey Connyro- these boots should be perfect for the BC65. They really are a xcountry boot- designed first and foremost for striding- as opposed to steering. They have a moderate flex to the sole and instep- offering classic xcountry striding performance- but with excellent stability. They are very to...

Re: Alpina Alaska NNNBC

Hey Mike- I am typically a 42.5-43EU. My Alaskas are a 43. I used to be a 42-42.5- my feet have "expanded" in the last decade (I'm 41 years old). My worn out Scarpa backpacking boots were a 42- and they used to fit! Just bought a replacement pair in a 43- fit perfect.

Alpina Alaska NNNBC

The Alpina Alaska NNNBC is the best NNNBC Nordic boot I have tried. I have well over 1000kms of backcountry touring on my current pair- without any significant problems. Pros include: comfort, durability, warmth, and performance. The only con I have had is that the stock insoles are very poor. My ev...
