Type II - Moderate
I’m very happy with this binding. It is a bit heavier than some of the other options I was considering. But it seems the small bit of extra weight makes a big difference in function and durability. I’ve broken two pairs of ATK bindings, but I do not have any concerns with these. So much so that I bring them to the resort (they adjust easily between my downhill boots and my backcountry boots). And I love transitioning with just lifting the flap off the pins without all the bending over and twisting. Lift fla...
Like many of the other reviews, I’m very happy with these boots. They easily drive a 100 mm ski (one of my initial concerns). Perhaps my only issue is that I am exactly a 27.5. So the 27 was too tight and I had to return. I was worried I would swim in the 28. But after trying a few thicker footbeds to take up some of the volume the 28 has been hotspot free with no slop. Great boot.
I’m surprised there are no reviews (perhaps it is the steep price tag). But once you pay the price tag, you will be happy. I love the way these ski. In many ways the best compliment to a piece of gear is when it becomes unnoticeable and just works. That’s how I feel about these skis. Whatever the conditions, just go downhill without thinking about it. They are so stable and dependable they now do double duty as my resort skis.
To be fair, this helmet is great for its intended purpose, rock climbing. For ski touring I was hoping it would be a good replacement for a Kong helmet I loved and wore out. It missed the mark for three reasons. 1. It sits high on my head and looks a bit dorky (vain, I know). 2. I typically tour with just a headband in my Kong. The venting in this helmet is so good I get cold, then throw on a beanie which gets too hot (also petty, but I hate fiddling with layers). 3. As a bald dude I worry about sunburn thr...
Hello Skimo staff. I love your store/website. I also love my discontinued La Sportiva badged RT bindings. https://skimo.co/la-sportiva-rt-bindings. However, lately I’ve been a bit jealous of the more recent over the pins type risers rather than twisting the binding. Is there an aftermarket riser flap that might work with my old RT? I saw the Hagan badged flaps on your site and thought it *might* be possible considering both were made by ATK. Looking at the picture it seems like a long shot they would be com...
