Gearheads go to the Neacola Mountains, AK

Given my experience in Haines, Alaska in April of 2013, it may have seemed crazy to start planning a return almost as soon as I got back. But as time goes by, you forget the struggles (four days of dumping snow that required eight hours of shoveling a day) and think about the amazing terrain you experienced (or merely saw from a distance); returning has a way of consuming your thoughts. Of course, there’s a lot of planning involved–but that’s part of the fun, at least for me.  I got a couple partners interested in the idea and started scheming. [...]

I have been running this tire for a couple months on the rear of my Santa Cruz TBLTc. Not just a race tire by any means, although I would run one on my race bike as well. The profile is deceiving, it grips very well on the "dirt" we have in UT, whether you're riding around SLC/PC or down south in St. George. However, it might be a little under gunned for the super rocky technical terrain in Moab. It will break loose while cornering hard, but in a very predictable controllable way. I haven't had these wear any quicker than other tires I've run in the rear. Will be buying another one.

Solid Ski
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Skied these in the Winds on Gannet Peak one day last season in corn conditions. They aren't the lightest, but are solid. Medium flex of the shovel and midfoot, to a stiffer tail. I'm 5' 10" and ski the 176cm with TLT-5 P's. Interested to see how they perform in the Wasatch on deeper/variable days when I want something lighter than my setup for powder.

I have a medium face and these fit great. I wear an old school Giro Flint SC, no gap. The only thing I would change about these is how you change lenses, it can be a problem in cold weather. The hop up pieces get in the way. As far as functionality goes though these are top notch, I have never had a problem with fogging even in the worst conditions. Highly recommended.

I have the 194's, 5' 10 185. I love them. Super stable at high speeds when straightlining. Turn radius is listed at 41m, but if you have to turn you can make smaller radius turns. Not actually as stiff as I thought they would be, but plow through crud very well. The upturned tips help this ski float better in pow then I thought it would. Very versatile and good for going fast. They can be a bit of a handful in very tight spots, but once you let them run it is all worth it.
