I've been using this ski all spring and it's easily the best ski mountaineering ski I've used to date. Edge hold is bomber, the light weight makes hop turns a breeze, tip rocker helps keep you on top of the inevitable deproach shmoo. Perfect flex for me, not soft but not harsh or chattery either. I'm 185 lbs sans pack and the 171 is just right even once I'm loaded up for a big day. Paired with Plum 170s and Scarpa F1s. After seeing durability issues with other skis that don't have full edge coverage a...

Consequently flops around when full and main compartment is not. - No way to mount a bottle holder securely. What looks in the product photos like a pote...
If you haven't been able to fit into this boot in the past, this is your year. I fit into this boot with only the slightest punch, which is almost unheard of for me. Very comfortable. It is incredibly stiff for how light it is and has excellent no-resistance ROM (seems substantially better than my Aliens). The power strap design is also very efficient, if you aren't going to rip it off. All I could ask for is an Alien-style lever that didn't require messing with pant cuffs (or cutting holes in them), but I'...
