Simple and light. I got rid of my Camp Nano as soon as I had one day with this. It's a touch heavier but the resin plug keeps it from filling with snow so it's lighter in that regard. The curve is nice and the resin head makes it nicer to carry with thin gloves. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a pinkie rest like the Sum-tec but I stole one off my Quarks and it's good to go. Held up to a winter in Chamonix and spring on the Coast just fine so seems bomber in that regard. Possibly slightly too short...

I've only used them three times really, in races. Super light. Easy to adjust the weight using their weight system. Actually, I was able to use an older, heavier binding that I normally wouldn't have used on a new race ski because I was able to just remove weights! That's definitely a plus. The tip notch is a bit deeper to make the skins stay on more securely. Mounting was no different than any other race ski but with more carbon. I'd love to see an even straighter cut and more camber for better stridin...

I race in the DNA and was using the Dynafit PDG as my training/touring/climbing boot for which it was adequate at everything but excellent at nothing. I switch to the Travers and have completely stopped using the PDG. Pros: -It's stiffer and skies better than the PDG. Paired with a 80-100mm underfoot ski for touring days, it's freaking awesome. -An actual full gaiter means that snow and slush don't pour into the front of the boot like the PDG. No snow in my boots! It's a miracle! -Much warmer than the PDG ...

A few things worth noting for this pack. It was built purely with racing mind so it is not my first choice for training (Skimo18 better choice for all around training and racing). The fabric against the back is essentially mesh so it is completely breathable meaning that it helps you stay cool, but anything in the pack will get really sweaty. Not a big deal in a race where you never open it but not good for training. It's also worth noting that the pack will only fit the most minimal race shovels (CAMP Cr...

A bit late but maybe it will still help someone: 1) The foam on the 1st generation RC1 caused major chaffing on the back of my calf while skinning. Like burn blisters. The 2nd gen (pink and green) version don't cause this for me. Could be adjustment of the cuff or possibly just newer, slipperier foam. 2) Even with the salomon slider, I never could get it to tighten very well. I found cutting out the slider and just tying a simple square knot in the laces worked infinitely better. Not hard to untie either...
