1 5

Used these for years, on various skis, since the old Ascension purple days. Always loved them in conditions downunder in Australia. Never needed long skins out the back.
Got a pair of 80mm new Glidelite Mohair Mix kickers and tore them pulling them off first season. Bugger, my bad, so coughed up for a new pair. The stainless plate sits off the base and catches in the snow and eventually the skin falls off. They also get very wet quickly, despite waxing. Seems like the shape of the plate has changed or the newer wider ones can't handle the forces involved, looks like the plate doesn't sit flush against the base to me.
Not great, will force me to use longer skins, which is a real shame down here. Much heavier.

I'd love a pair of these. A little confused about the sizes, though. Worn 42s in various Sportivas for years. Currently got 42 in Muiras, very tight, probably prefer .5 up next time. But I also wear Mythos a lot, 41 or 41.5, snug fit. 11US in 5.10 camp fours. I'm guessing a 42.5 should be a nice crack shoe? Can't buy them downunder, so can't try them on first.
Any ideas about comparing them to the above? Any input greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Mr PP

Hi
Buying for Australia. Got the T2 Eco last season. Loved them. Better than my old bumblebee T1s. Wearing 29 in everything Scarpa (T2s, T3s, T4s, T1s) will the new T1/ TRace fit same sizing? Worried the TRace is a bit narrower?? Want the TRaces - Why get less control? But have wide problem feet. Can't try them on here. Anyone have any experience with past sizes - T1 to TRace shift?
Cheers
Mr. Poopypants

Well, they arrived a while back and fit nicely. If anything, a tad wider than the old T1s and the eco T2s. Just a bit looser in the toes, but basically the same size. And they are red! Looking forward to our season starting in June.
Cheers

Hi
I'd like some new T2s for the Aussie ski season but can't figure the sizes. I have old azure T2s and bumblebee T1s in UK 10, which I think is 29 in the new sizing. Seems to be two charts floating about and one says they should be 27.5 Can't believe that's right. I tried on some old red T2x (our shops don't have much) and 29 was about right. Help??
