I own a Pulse, and recommend it. I feel it is always worth the extra money. Never a regret in that investment.

Mammut sees it like this:

the PULSE is for:
– Intensive user
– Beginner with ambitions
– Mountain / Ski guide and tour leader
– Professional user
– Organisations

and the ELEMENT for:
– Occasional user
– Beginner
– Group participants

You can see a detailed comparison here:

No, it isn't removable for the purposes of using outside of the bandit pack. However BD does sell a stand alone sling called the AvaLung II Sling. It is not currently available on backcountry.com but you can find it on black diamonds website. You might want to live chat with BC.com and see if tey will be getting them in stock.

Yes. However it isn't a lightweight touring ski. You will be carrying a bit more weight up hill. But I know people who use this ski with dynafits as their AT setup and really like it.

This jacket is not a shell, but a down insulated jacket and very warm on it's own. It is not really designed for layering other jackers beneath as it is not a shell. However, you could layer a denali beneath it if you had the right size. However, with a denali beneath it may lose the fitted look. You might try looking for jackets that are more of a shell if you are concerned with layering.

Size wise it should, as there are smaller CU IN packs that are designed to hold avy gear. However...

If you are intending to ski with this, I do not think this pack would work well for that use. It may fit a small shovel and probe, but this is a light weight packable pack meant to be used more as a rucksack and stuff bag. Not a lot of padding between your back and the avy gear.

If you are looking for a small ski pack to hold avy gear may I suggest checking out:

from wildsnow.com :

"Built for edge hold when you encounter conditions such as white ice during ski descents of big peaks, the ski is still said to handle varied conditions, as a board of this sort would have to.
My take is that the Broad Peak is a quiver ski. You’d own it if you want something that’ll help you survive steep icy terrain you might encounter during spring ski descents and that sort of thing"

Go with the 110.

The 92mm break will be a little tight on that ski, however it can be bent out a few mm no problem and should totally work fine. But with that said if you are planning on mounting to the 178cm o bigger ski, the waist gets wider by 3mm and you might want the wider break. In the past Dynafit had measured the break from the outside edges, not the inside, not sure if that has changed.

The reason I recommend the 110, is I bet your next ski will be even wider and you will get more out of the life of those TLT verticals.

This is going to be a good setup.

TLT radical FT on Salomon Rocker 2

Sandy and all,
Considering these binders as an option on my Rocker 2s. I have been using Dynafit on my AT specific skis and wanted to have a pair of bigger powder skis for taking into the backcountry and even riding in bounds. Any concerns or issues with riding the radicals on that type of ski?

I am 195, 5'11" and ski better than you.

the Baron brake is only 110mm wide. The Rocker 2 is 127 under foot, so with the standard brake these would not work well together based on that.

If you were to get the 130mm brake it should be fine. It will be close, but brakes can be bent a little bit, without compromising their ability to stop your ski.
