I have a simple question, if the pins are more forward mounted on the boot, would the pin line than be forward of say BP on a more traditional ski?
Not sure I understand...?
For most people in most XCd situations, the pin line / pivot point of a boot will always be the best at the ski's balance point... No matter where the pivot is located on the boots...?

Alfa's Xplore line up on the Norwegian site: https://www.alfa.no/pages/search-results-page?q=xplore
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

Did you not just get the most awesome pair of 75mm leathers ever, the rarer than a dodo eggs' Zenith? Why then this sudden switch to NNN. Have you been struck by lighting or contracted yet another forn of GAS?
Good one Benjamin :lol: . I am not getting ride of all my 75mm binding and certainly not my Zenith :shock:. I just took the opportunity to buy the NNN-BC Alaska as the 75mm keeps breaking and I love those boots I will use NNN for my narrower skis…. for now :D
What size Zenith did you get
Hey Woods! They are either 121/2 or 13…. I can’t read the label… Bougth them from @Cannatonic so maybe he will recall.
