Sean's Bio

I just want to be outside and active. I have a lab/retriever mix named Boo that loves doing anything outside with my wife and I.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They prefer to be in the powder but they will tolerate trails that are in good condition. Once the trails are skied off, they get twitchy on me. In the powder they could not be more fun, they flex and respond and make it easy.

Strong and stable, switching settings requires you to remove your boot, everything must be cleaned off reasonably well or the binding will not lock back in. I'm still pretty new to them, I'll update if my opinion changes.

I'm 6'1 and 185lbs and I ski in Idaho. I love these skis, they are great in the powder. They flex and jump out of the snow making every turn effortless. At the resort they want to be pushed but they are super stable. Thus far I couldn't be happier, by far the best ski I have ever owned. I'll update if my opinion changes.

It is the easiest self-locker I have used (that may be because it was the first as well). Feeding rope is not always easiest job but otherwise I love it. I have a couple climbing friends that are safe but not the safest, and this helps lock quicker. IT IS NOT IDIOT PROOF, I have heard of a person having the rope laced under the brake and when they tried to catch a fall the rope tightened on the device pulled the brake full open and the person dropped and extra 20 feet, no injuries just dirty underwear, but none-the-less not idiot proof. Make sure everyone knows how to use it before you go out.

I bought this (with my fingers crossed) to work with my original style Boa system. It worked fine, the quick release had to be screwed all the way in but it held just fine. All the picks show this item with the newer rack systems, don't worry, it works.

**side note: Fork Up is the actual manufacturer, and when I looked they were charging more for the item and for the shipping, buying direct wasn't worth it.
