Cool idea, and significantly cheaper than other cuben race packs available. This is not the same pack that Ferrino makes, and Crazy Idea rebrands. Unlike those the section with Kohla, and the logo printed on it is not cuben, but instead nylon. This actually works pretty well, because cuben seems to be fairly delicate to slicing, something ski edges do when carried on the pack. I'm not a huge fan of the wrap-around ski carry as opposed to the classic hook, but I suppose that's personal preference. The pa...

Crampon receptors: They do the job, when ATK had crampon receptors permanently attached it only came at a 4 gram penalty, yet these weight 16g a piece. Dropped a star because these should not cost as much as they do. Another note, while the aluminum of the receptors is the classic high quality alloy that ATK uses, the screws are not. The heads twist off all too easily, be careful when installing and removing.

I've been running race bindings on all my skis for a few years now. Plum race 150, ATK, Dyanfit low tech, etc. I've accepted the rigid attachment as opposed to the "surfy" feel of alpine oriented bindings.

It provides a different, better feel skiing, one more akin to larger and heavier bindings. While I haven't skied t...

These are by far the stiffest race skis currently available. These are stiff throughout the ski, tip to tail. Whereas other stiff skis like the gara aero 70s are often only stiff in the tail and remain moderate in the midfoot ant tip. For racing I believe the gara aero construction is far superior, nimble and takes chop well. For steep skiing, and other mountain fun the extra stiffness of the minims is preferable for me. If you like a very stiff ski, or are tall and heavy these would be a great match, other...

Do all of the three holed dynafit heel pieces share the same screw pattern? LTR, LTR 2, 1st gen superlite, and RC1 heels
