Anyone ever skin on these? I tour a lot and wonder if the full rocker is any good for sketchy skinning situations.
I don't but have friends who do. The ELP rocker is much different tahn say an S7 - the ski is pretty much in full contact with the snow. The weight of the ski is likely a bigger issue than traction.
Yes i have the 177 with a Marker Baron Binding, and they are ok for touring, the metal sheet within it makes it heavy but the rocker and shape of the ski is still suitable. it is perfect for a quick skin and a good ski down but i wouldn't want to take it on a multiday tour.
