Are you likely to get any more R8 bindings in?
Bummer. The Vario.2 is >100g heavier and the Gara Titan lacks the heel elasticity. Seems like Trab discontinued a great thing. Wish I had bought the R8 when it was still around.
Are you expecting more Titan Vario R8 heels in at some point in the near future? I have R10s but was looking to go lower if possible...
I've been considering Sytron and I'm curious what Skorpius offers for +200g (ish) in weight. Are these much stiffer boots intended to drive bigger skis? Both seem to be 2 buckles + optional power strap in the same format as the previous Spitfire/Sideral, so I'm wondering what differentiates the two lines. Sytron seems like a skimo race/touring hybrid?
Can you still obtain the "power strap" and spoiler for Sideral 1.0 (the optional strap that goes above the main cuff buckle)? If not, are there any other straps from similar LaSportiva boots that will substitute? Do you know if Spitfire 2.0 / Syborg / Sytron uses the same spoiler/strap?
