Hi Andrew, while it's not awesome to ski breakable crust on any ski, I think I'd give the nod in this particular standoff to the 100s. They have a bit of a DPS Wailer shape to the tip that seems to let you plane out of the crust a bit better than other skis.

Hi Jon, they sure do!

Hi Leo, lots of folks are touring using race bindings these days. But please remember they typically do not have adjustable release values; they may or may not be appropriate for you in terms of release/retention (visit our binding finder for help). This is a drawback for many skiers for general purpose usage. Durability is not more of a concern with these versus other bindings; in fact it's less in many cases.

Hi Andrew, thanks for the feedback. For what it's worth, in our experience the rotation issues were licked with the version that introduced the little nubbin that gets mounted under/off to the side of the heel. It would be hard to rotate accidentally over that!

Hi Liming, I would get the Cho for mainly on-piste touring. No need for all that width in the Denali.
