Bought these in 80mm and ripped them down to 40mm. They now work as a wonderful and affordable kicker skin for the flat approaches. Plenty of kick for anything up to 15-20 degrees and enough glide to enjoy it. Would suggest everybody make a pair of small skins for this purpose. I've only tried them a few times so I can't comment on reliability. However they seem to stick well. Arrived very quickly from Skimo. It was fun to make my own pair. I'm now making a pair for my wife as well.
I have these mounted on the Fischer Alp Attacks. It is an amazingly light set up. The bindings have done everything they promised and more. Extremely lightweight. Boots stay in for walk mode. easy to flip the heels in/out of walk mode. I have heard that the lateral release is high but luckily haven't had a bad crash yet to test them out. They feel super bomber though and that is a good confidence booster. So far they have been great and I look forward to the first race on them!

I just got these at Christmas and have loved them for the first 3-4 ski days! They are my first lightweight boot and I think I am in love.

I just got these and so far love them. Extremely light (paired with the Fischer Race Tour Bindings and Dynafit PDG's) and ski well. I've skied them on groomers and they rip! I skied on 4-6" of light powder on a hard base and they worked wonderfully. I skied on crud and they skied as well as any other race ski (but not a fun experience). I'd definitely recommend them to anyone else who is looking for an ultra light racing set up. I've been pleasantly surprised on how well they ski.
