Can the Manaslu be fitted with Diamir...
Can the Manaslu be fitted with Diamir Fritschi bindings, or do they require Dynafits?
They are predrilled for the dynafits, and if I can remember from my shop/mounting days, I believe the fritschi has a different mounting pattern. You could probably do it if the holes were at least a half centimeter off, but why would you want to put fritschi's on those skis anyway? The beauty of them is that they are so light, and you need to keep that alive with dynafit bindings!

The Manaslu skis do everything! Excellent in all soft and junky snow. They perform really well in wind blown/crust also. I deviated into a bump run on piste and they did fine. These are my go to skis for my job with the Forest Service sampling snow and taking air quality samples in the Wind River Mtns.
Excellent Backcountry Ski
Just had my first day touring the Utah backcountry with the Manaslus. These are excellent touring skis, very light, great turns in deep pow. We also ran into some firm wind blown areas, and the skis worked great.
The set up with Dynafit bindings is perfect for big touring days.

I am trying to figure out what size to get. I am a decent skier, weigh 168 lbs. I am used to skiing a 175 cm, can I get away with a 169 cm.
If you are used to skiing a 175, I would say try the 178. The 169 might feel a little short and you will lose some stability at high speeds.
This ski was purchased to do backcountry skiing in Colorado. I recently used it on a hut trip and was pleased. The ski is very light, but functional. It turns well, is responsive and had good float in 12" of powder. I would recommend it.
