Hi Claudia, The part in the picture that you attached is the Backland shell buckle, which we do have as you observed. The Backland Cuff Buckle Catch we do not currently have in stock, but we are hoping to get more. If you email us at we can get you on a notification list for this part.
Hi Alastair, Good for you, keep those skis going! The R13 plate is 6.45mm thick according to our calipers.
Hi Kim, I have owned two pairs of Pomoca skins and both are the 165-180cm length, paired with 177 and 179cm skis - so near the minimum amount of skin material possible. I have never wanted the longer length. Especially since you opted for the 140mm width on a 106mm ski, you will have full coverage everywhere. I doubt you will be lacking for grip.
Hi Jen, You're on the right track! The Rise Beyond 96 is a great ski that is carvy on firm snow and tons of fun on corn, and can still float well in powder due to its large shovel. It has a stiff, round flex profile that works quite well in many conditions. The Backland 98 will be a little more soft-snow oriented, along with the Hypercharger. The Backland loves shorter powder turns, and the Hypercharger is a fun and playful ski with some energy that will want to open it up a little more. I would lean tow...
Hi Dan, I would go with the 102mm brakes and tweak it outwards just slightly.
