Re: Closed ski resorts due to the coronavirus

Doctors and nurses haven't started to wear masks during this crisis, they did that before. Notice how surgeons have always worn masks NOT because they are afraid to catch something from the patient, but vice versa? HK did many things right, as shown by the infection curve. Wearing a mask is a good w...

Re: Closed ski resorts due to the coronavirus

A mask doesn't protect you from infection. It protects others from you, if you are infected. Thanks for urging panic buying on a public message board.

Re: Ein Ex gibt sich die Ehre!

Ich glaube, ich habe noch ein Konvolut Snowpro Race Bügelbindungen (baugleich mit Völkl) im Keller liegen. Würde ich dir gegen Versandkosten überlassen. Wenn es dich interessiert, schaue ich nach, ob sie noch da sind.

Re: UPZ-Boots- Skifahr-Eigenschaften

Danke fürs Update! Nach meinen lange zurückliegenden Erfahrungen mit dem Indy auf Snowblades stimme ich dir zu, dass sich der UPZ mit roter Zunge und Nachrüstfedersystem wahrscheinlich nicht zum Skifahren eignet. Der Indy (orange) war ein sehr steifer Schuh für einen SB-Hardboot, damals hatte ich au...

Re: UPS boots

I am pretty sure those boots are from the 1990s. The predecessor of the current lineup was the RSV Superlight (red/grey). It had the shell shape of today's models, but it was extremely stiff and the stock liners were really crappy. The models before that (such as the Mach X) were different shapes. I...

Re: Who needs a lift to Zinal from AT?

I am afraid no one will take you up on your offer, unless your car is a DeLorean and your flux capacitors are working exactly to spec ;-)
In which case one wonders how you can have two vacant seats in a two-seater.

Re: Hardboots...wo kaufen?

Das RAB würde ich Dir nicht empfehlen, da sich dort nur der Vorwärts-Lean einstellen lässt. ... außerdem fand ich (damals knapp 70 kg ohne Ausrüstung) das RAB selbst mit der weicheren Feder extrem hart. Das BTS mit den weichsten (gelben) Federn brachte deutliche Besserung. Derzeit fahre ich DGSS fü...

Re: Hardboots...wo kaufen?

Soweit ich weiß, ist es möglich, die Schuhe direkt von UPZ mit den Wunschzungen zu beziehen. Ich weiß aber nicht, ob man dazu extra hinfahren muss. Zum Thema Thermoflex habe ich auch schon meine Erfahrungen gemacht. Leider hat bei mir selbst der erfahrene Profi zwar ein besseres Ergebnis geliefert a...

I used a Bootdoc footbed meant for skiing (non-customized) for a long time with good results.

Carve Company bindings are notably absent from the bindings list (formerly Ibex, formerlyformerly Burton).

Re: Extreme Carving Question?

I would worry more about the TD2 SI itself, as it is orders of magnitude stiffer (especially laterally) than your Burton plates.

Re: New models of hard boots and tests for extremecarving

My first own board (in 1995) was nothing fancy, and it cost the equivalent of about 500 of today's Euros, which was a lot of money, given that I was a student. Of course it's possible to sink upwards of € 3K for a boots/board/bindings combo today. But if you buy used or last season's, you can set yo...

Re: Bindung, Handschuhe, Wachsen, Polyglut und Co

Hallo, ich grabe diesen Thread wieder aus. Ich habe da nämlich eine technische Frage: Haftet Polyglut auch auf Handschuhen, die bereits einmal mit Sika behandelt wurden? Oder ist davon abzuraten, und ich sollte fürs neuerliche Verstärken wieder Sika verwenden? Hintergrund meiner Frage: Polyglut ist ...

Re: Advice for boots needed

Flex can be tuned. This is more a question of fit than anything else. And the UPZ shell is shaped quite differently from the symmetrical Deeluxe shell. You can only try them and see if they fit better.
