Hey Helon! Ha, just read that original reply and you're right, it definitely left a little bit to be desired. To answer your question though, no the 2.0 and the original Maestrale do not share a similar ski/walk mech. If you have the latest generation Maestrale 2.0 then the 2.0 ski/walk mech will do it. Looks like we are out of the original Maestrale ski/walk mech at the moment though. For future reference though they are labeled as "Maestrale pre-17 Ski/Walk Mechanism" and cost $23.95 per side.
