Will you be getting more of the steel speed radical (or speed turn) toe pieces in at some point? I realize that the aluminum version is probably just as good, but it doesn't come with screws.. :(
Having skied on the Cirque 84's for nearly a season and a half, I have been very impressed. The two previous skis that BD has made that would compare to this ski (Helio 88 and Helio 76) were mediocre at best. Most of all, the 76 and 88 were both way too heavy for their respective sizes. Not so with the Cirque 84. This ski feels really damp and stable for its size and weight, and in my experience their durability has been average if not better than average. Downhill performance is impressive too, as I usua...

I see F1 Power straps listed, but I am assuming that these are the upper, thin straps that I removed.

In broken French that I asked Alain if he would send some to me in the states por favor, but unfortunately I found no success. Fast forward a couple yers and I see them pop up at my favorite ski shop, I just had to! But seriously these poles are really ergonomic and reasonably light (they seem quite durable as well). Shout out to for always bringing in the coolest niche-y ski gear. Get...
I purchased 360 cm of these skins to build some race style skins for my Zero G 95's. So far I have been very impressed with their glide and ease of removal as compared to my old Black Diamond Glidelite skins. Traction seems to be about the same as my old skins, if not slightly better. Hopefully these will be at least as durable as other mohair mix skins on the market, but time will tell. I did notice that when I trimmed them there was significantly less fraying and loss of "fur" on the edges of the skin. I ...
