I bought a pair of Alaskas last november and here is what happened after two months (about 25 outings).bgregoire wrote: ↑Mon Feb 08, 2021 8:18 pmSomebody need to do a study and compare how many of the Alaska boots fail in Voile vs Rotta Super Telemark. Am I the only one to notice how extra strain is applied to various spots at the front of these boots in Voiles? Everything is smoother in the STs. My partners boot also failed in the Voiles of course.check it out, I’d love your feedback.
I use them with Voile bindings.
I must say that I'm very disappointed since it's the obvious breaking point. If I was the manufacturer and I cared about what I do, I would reinforce it. For the record, I mostly ski in rolling terrain and I don't have space to do teleturns.
The retailer will definitely reimburse me for this. I wonder if I'll buy another pair of Alaskas since I really liked them (comfy, warm, stiff enough) before they broke down or if I'll go towards something else like the Alfa Greenland even if they are very pricey. If anyone has an headsup on this, I'd be glad to hear it.
PS: a friend of mine just got into skiing this year and his Rossignol sole unglueded and he had to replace the zipper on his fischers after only one use. I don't know if we're damned but it doesn't inspire me to go towards these boots either.
