Just some 3 pin bindings. I have a pair of T2s and some leather boots I'll likely use with these.
Thanks man. The glades where I do laps I don't usually get more than 400' or so per lap and some lines I only do 150' or so, so I don't really need anything too fancy. In fact, the less time I spend messing with bindings and putting skins on, the more time I spend skiing.
I have a pair of carbon fiber La Sportiva's with Dynafit Radical bindings, they are super light - I want to say 2.5lbs with bindings for the pair. Pairing these with the Dynafit CF radical boots makes a combo that is about as light weight as you can get. They ski well in powder and soft snow and are stiff enough to hold on ice but they get really tossed around in crud or heavy snow. I have relegated them to mostly touring on moderate terrain. I thought I would want them for climbing but it turns out they are better for touring. I bought skins for them but now use mostly kick wax and rarely ever use the skins. My Vole Vector BC's are more versatile and I use them for more serious terrain. You need to take this with a grain of salt though as I don't do as much BC as I use to, too much baklava and age.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.
I doubt these will see much chopped up crud. I bought these to replace the S Bound 98s that I sold on here. Mainly skis for skiing moderate to rolling terrain in soft, fresh snow. These are wider, lighter and have less camber. They are also way, way stiffer torsionally. They are pretty stiff flexing as well, which I like, as noodle skis tend be a bitch to climb in deep snow with.
I think they are pretty similar in concept to the original Vector but narrower and lighter construction. Maybe like a hybrid between a SkiMo ski and the Vector?
I have a pair of smooth base, lightweight BC skis, but sometimes I really hate dealing with the wax and skins. I'm hoping these have decent climbing grip.
