Hey Andrew! Both skis are fantastic so you can't really lose here! The V6 is a killer ski but because of the flex pattern, shape, rocker profile, etc, it's definitely a soft snow oriented ski that would pair well with a two or four buckle boot (1,000-1,400g). Voile has a special place in my heart because their headquarters are 20 minutes from our headquarters and they are really tough to not have a great time on. The Alp Tracks line is definitely built for the light 'n fast backcountry skiers and ski moun...

Hey Cayce! No dumb questions!! 130mm is going to work just fine. Depending on who you ask, your skin width should be measured based on the width of the tail of your skis (some people want to size based on the width of the tip of the ski, but because most skis, especially 108mm underfoot skis have a ton of tip rocker, all you create is drag if size based on the tip of the ski). But yes, you also found how well a straight cut race skin climbs so pretty much anything more than a straight cut race skin will cli...

Hey Evan! We've got a huge article that nerds out on the ramp angles/deltas that can be found here, but the Hagan Core has a +10.5mm delta and the Vipec is +10. We haven't measured the Vipec Evo though so I can't verify for sure if the newest model is the same, but I think the pin heights and geometry remained the same between the new model and the old model, so I believe it's still +10mm.

Hey BJT! The TLT7 has compatibility issues with a few bindings, but almost all of them are the burlier bindings like the Fritschi Tecton/Vipec, etc. The rest of the lighter tech bindings like the RT and ION 12 shouldn't have any issues though! Just to be sure I tested the TLT7 Performance in the ION 12 and couldn't find any issues and same with the Hagan Core, which has a very similar toe piece to the RT.

Hey Eric! We have a boat load of options and most of them tend to fit pretty well actually, we haven't found any compatibility issues with the F1 and any crampons. If you plan to be booting on snow almost exclusively and don't plan on doing a ton of pure ice and rock beyond just a quick scramble then the Petzl Leopard or Camp Race 290 are sweet! Otherwise the Camp XLC NanoTech is a great light 'n fast crampon where you may encounter more than just snow and the Petzl Irvis Hybrid and Grivel SkiMatic 2.0 are ...
