I have been using the Aerospace goggles for the last year - mine have the zebra lenses - and have been very pleased with them in all conditions except flat light. The lenses are very crisp and your vision is acute and clear. The photochromic lens changes quickly and is great for skiing a wide open slope, dropping into a shaded chute, ducking into the trees, and then popping back out into full sun. I never felt like I was struggling to deal with the brightness level. Even low-light when the sun was going do...

I've used these a couple times on spring tours - nothing to dicey, but when the snow was hard enough that I just felt like I needed some extra purchase that the boot soles just wouldn't quite provide. Setup was pretty straight forward, I was actually able to get them dialed on the second or third try for each boot (fortunately my two boots have a BSL that is only 1mm off each other). These things pack down so small and are so light that I tend to just leave them in my UD 18L pack and don't worry about havi...

For starters, I am not a fan of ski brakes. I prefer a leash - it makes me more confident that my ski is going to stay a ski and not turn into a scavenger hunt. After a day on the stock Dynafit leashes that came with my Speed Radicals, I decided that I wanted a bit more length and versatility with the leash. Fortunately, I'd seen these leashes while looking on B&D's website for some toe riser plates for the same bindings (before SkiMo.co carried B&D, otherwise I would have ordered from you guys...). The pr...

I have been on Dynafit bindings since I began skiing a couple years ago. The first set was the Radical ST, so I felt good about changing to the Speed Radical when I got some new skis because I preferred using a leash to brakes when in the backcountry, and the fact that the Radical lets you skin with your boot flat to the ski as well. A year on, I have been reasonably happy with the Speed Radical bindings. There is nothing that stands out to me as a drawback to them other than the weight (I recently purch...

I went ahead and purchased the brakes to go with my Dynafit Superlight 2.0 bindings despite the fact that I really prefer a leash for backcountry skiing. My thought was that for resort days cruising with my son, I would be able to easily slap on the brake and not have to go on-and-off with the leash. The brakes came in both at 80g - 5g under their claimed weight - which was nice. The finish quality of the brakes looks great and installing them is a piece of cake. Unfortunately, taking them off requires too...
