DeeLuxe boots

Hi everyone! The new season is nearly here and it's time for shopping some new gear. Anyone has any news if there will be any changes on deeluxe's boots? They are supposedly working with some experts that worked for Burton's hardboot equipment and as there weren't any significant changes on Indy in ...

Two movies from Zinal - Grimentz 2005

Hi everybody! A friend of mine edited two movies from our vacation in Grimentz/Zinal this year during ECS. The first one is powder based "The white intoxication" and the second one is carving based "The white trace". http://www-e2.ijs.si/People/Bostjan.Pregelj/gallery.htm Have fun during summer, Jakob

Northwave boot sizing

Hi! Could anyone help me with the size of NW .900 mondo 290? I normally wear size 45, my sole length is 282 mm, but as I can't try on the boots I still wouldn't want to buy boots that don't fit... However, I know you can't say for sure, but could some people owning NWs tell their experience about th...

Hi! In my opinion and experience the problem is rarely the material, kevlar or even rubber or plastic does good enough job being resistant to wear/tear, the main problem are the stitches. They tend to rip and tear apart, on the palm as well as on the fingertips. I always see working gloves in the sh...

Hi!

It would help a lot if someone could scan the article and post it... I'm sure many of us would like to read/see it. And it would cut the shipping costs and time as well.

Oh, and it wouldn't pollute nature as much - no paper waste :D

Bye,

A dumb question perhaps, but still better to be stupid for five minutes than remain stupid for the rest of your life: did I get this right or are there two lines of F2 titanium bindings: "ordinary" and race? I don't mean step-in and classic, but design/material? And what is Titanflex? Any breakages ...

Hi Hans! Thanks a lot for your comments. I know F2 bindings are less expensive and they are available in Slovenia. I rode Burton Race plates and some other less known brands and I've broken them all. On Burtons I broke every possible part: base plate several times, front and rear bails and screws th...

I know, I've more or less read about TD2 and TiD2. I haven't found that much on Cateks though. At least not in the sense of durability. There have been posts of people bending and even breaking TD2 bails. :roll: Titanium Bombers should take care of this problem. However, I haven't noticed any such p...

Yes, sorry, I'm not that much into metal world (except for heavy metal music)...

What I mean is metal binding, whatever metal that might be, as long as it's strong :twisted:

Bomber & Catek comparison again

Hi! Before a while there was a debate about Catek bindings, some compared them with TD, but at the time there wasn't TD2 and TiD2 available. I was wondering if you can comment on those two, I'm particularly interested in bails on Cateks, anyone broke them, bent them? And also dampening comparison be...

Hi Vikking! Yes, Goltes did have a carve camp on saturday, but they had limited number for participants (10) and it was only for buyers of their boards. But most of the people I've seen didn't own their boards. In fact, as I wasn't a participant, it seems to me that the camp took place on some other...

Hi! I was in very popular local resort - Krvavec, that's in Slovenia. It's not big and it's often overcrowded, but if you are a bit patient or lucky it offers pretty decent carving possibilities. It's a good choice for a one day boarding, especially during the week, when it's empty. On weekends peop...

Revival of the harbooters

Hi! I just wanted to share with you an observation. I was on the snow on saturday, probably the last time in this season as the snow is already very wet and is melting away. But I couldn't help it, I had to go and enjoy those agressive carves... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: However, what struck me ...
