Level9 destroyed for 2 sets of skiis and boots. Showed up in 3 days.

Helmet ordered from Mec the same day still aWol. 2 weeks later.

right on. glad it worked for you. there is often gems buried in there. sometimes crazy cheap blowout deals. I wish more online shops would have ez cross border set up checkouts like that. sadly not much touring gear

Rossignol Super 7

do they hold up. I haven't skied rossi since I had a couple pairs of triple x's. you even looked at a rock in the distance and a huge chunk of base, edge and sidewall would rocketship out the side. that was a while ago though, but for a long time rossi was like that. the bic pen of skis we called them

SPD Shoes with more rearward cleat position.

sorry Punky. missed that . yes XV1. there comfy eh? no calf cramp when the cleat is back there. nice walkers for a clipped shoe and great grip on rocks. crazy light. same weight as the super light addidas mesh shoes with a quick cord tightener(like triathalon shoe) instead of buckle or Velcro I have. no way I thought the 5 10's would be as light as those. pleasant surprise on the scale. see how durable they are. bunch o rides now and still look new

Thanks Rasheed. Looks like that list kills it for me.

Anyone know any canadian sites or others that will ship to canada,specifically for backcountry gear?

for bc gear telemark pyrenes or gearx . depending on what you need you could also try level9sports(well set up for cross border-checkout price is the price) ans also STP sierra trading post(try googling for additional discount codes)

Riding with the King

ok cool. I was thinking there was a different crampon for each and the ft crampons didn't go as wide but there might be an alternative or aftermarket crampon. in that case i'll just keep the ft's. looks like the reviews on the mec link echo your suggestion on width(go wider). they're a lil forward of narrowest part of waist 130 might also fit my protests 128mm waist as well. looks like very limited production of the kingpin in the first yr

Riding with the King

U may know then. I have ft12's and a new wider touring ski(116 underfoot), ready to be mounted. I went a little wider than I normally would for a touring ski with the lighter weight of praxxis' new ultra light core. I thought I'd use a crampon when the skin track is bullet proof. Never used a ski crampon but a split board friend throws his on in seconds and works like a charm. Can you get a ski crampon for ft's to fit a 116 ski or will I need a radical or atleast rad toe?

looks like the best entry to the new pintech bindings by far. just hope its durable. its going to suck putting a second set of holes in my new touring skis for the kings after someone else tests them for a year.
prices quoted from Lou Dawson
Exact cost will depend on brake width, but most common MSRPs are
$599.00 for the 5-10 DIN (the [HTML_REMOVED]#8220;10? model)
$649.00 for the 6-13 DIN (the [HTML_REMOVED]#8220;11? model)

edit; 7 minutes. will these help me type faster

SPD Shoes with more rearward cleat position.

I've been happy with my new 5-10's. maybe 5 or 6 days . 7 1/2 hr day with a fair bit of walking the other day went well. I guess they fit my feet. surprising how light they are(411g w cleat installed). a slight bit lighter than my previous racey type addidas shoes. not quite as stiff but close . not noticing too much flex. toes bend so they walk pretty good. not hiker good because of the cleat but its noticeably better than any spd shoe I've had.

NRG hippy killers

the bearing/axle assembly on the hippy killers are not the best. These are probably the best pedals for the buck right now:

that looks like a well designed option. crazy light for the price as well. have you had time on them?
