In order to benefit fully of the carving properties of a mo...

Boots

What about UPS RSV. I bought a pair last winter to substitute for my pair of Raichle 323.

Board stiffness and snow conditions

Hi Jacques, Thanks for your very instructive comments on board stiffness and snow conditions. Still, I have some problems with really understanding how it works. From alpine skiing I have learnt and experienced that soft snow means soft skis (and boots) and hard/icy conditions means a harder ski. Ha...

Experiences with SWOARD

Having used the SWOARD 168 hard since the beginning of March, I would like to share some of my experiences with the Forum. This is my 4th full carving season, sharing my time between skiing (enjoy both running gates and freeriding) and carving, and have reached a moderate carving level. My boards be...
