My Skiing

I like to ski. I like it best when it's steep, but I'm really not picky.

Touring, riding chairs, cat-skiing, long walks on rocks in search of snow...doesn't matter. I like it all.

Hi Mark, it sounds likely that you have a Radical ST binding. If it is all black and gray, you have a Radical ST, if there is some green and bronze color to it, you have a Radical ST 2.0. We currently have both in stock, and you can select the one you need from the drop down menu above. I'm sorry to hear that you've broken several of these. It seems that if there is going to be a failure of the Radical ST binding, that the heel piece is the weakest link. That being said, we have many customers who have ...
Hi Bill, the Alien has a tried and true history as a ski mountaineering boot and is definitely up to the use you are proposing for it. The original intent, however, is as a skimo race boot which means that many of the features have in turn been trimmed to a minimum. The sole is known to be good, but it is not as thick or made of the same rubber that heavier boots are equipped with. In the end, the conditions and your personal confidence are the deciding factor for when you need to put the crampons on to ens...
Hi Tim, in our experience fitting this boot the sizing and shape seems to be consistent from the older model to this model. The shell break is certainly the same, so if you wore a 29.5 if the older version I would suggest going with that size in this version.
Hi Taylor, I've used 90mm crampons with a 78mm ski a fair amount and it hasn't been a problem. I wouldn't want too much more size difference though or the crampon starts applying too much torque on the receptor that is attached to the binding.
Hi Anthony, it's a bummer to hear that you are struggling with the fit of your boots. I've fit the Powertrack 10 on a number of customers, and tried it on for my own fit. I think it will be too tight of a fit in the toes for your Alien RS. The 7mm Ultralight Performance liner will likely be too thin. I have experimented a little bit with the Intuition Pro Tour MV liner in the Alien RS and have found that it could be a workable solution if a person is dealing with too much volume in the calf and heel. You...
