Everybody will need a voile strap at one point in their adventures. I have used it for everything. From securing a skin that has lost its glue to bailing down a pair of skis on a snowmobile rack or fastening a tube to my bike frame; these straps can do it all. I like to have a variety of lengths, depending on the use. But, if I am packing a few just in case, I tend to go with the longest ones I can get. You can always double the strap through the loop or even cut it if need be. I find it to be a bit easier than doubling up straps, which also works.

While this binding is more than enough for the majority of skiers, me included, I can't help but fly the flag for them. While I have not seen any issues with the plastic, 14 din, variant, the metal toe piece helps to ensure that this binding will last forever. I have never released early in this binding but have also been relieved when I did release.
If you are unsure as to whether or not you need the 18 DIN, get the 14 DIN. It will be lighter, just as safe and will save you a few bucks.

If you have somehow broken the 14 DIN binding or dont feel that 14 is enough DIN (it probably is), you will be pleased with this Pivot 18.

The one downside with this binding design is that it is difficult to put on in soft snow or with snow in the heel piece. Is the trouble worth it? 100%

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

I had a chance to take these skis out to Deer Valley for the day and I couldn't have been more impressed. I know ski reviews are ridden with hyperbole but, I feel like the praise is justified with this pair.

I have skied plenty of aggressive carving skis and was ready for these things to take me for a ride. While I did ski them pretty aggressively, it did not feel like they were trying to kill me, like I had expected.
At the same time, these skis just do not have a speed limit. I skied the 176 length, pointed them straight down the hill and they did not flinch. at all. The stability made it seem like it was a ski that was 10 cm longer and extremely stiff.

At the same time, this ski is actually a lot more forgiving than you would expect. While it loves speed, it actually skis surprisingly well at moderate speeds as well. You can slide the tails out if need be and you do not start to panic when you head for a field of variable snow. Is it the best ski I have ever skied in chop? Definitely not. But, it was extremely impressed with how well it handled. It felt like this ski had multiple personalities as it seemed to soften up at moderate speeds but somehow get stiffer as my speed increased. I have never been on anything like it.

If you're looking for the best ski you can buy for the frontside, this is your ticket.

Everytime I step into a pair of skis with this shape, I am a bit apprehensive. There have been plenty of skis that are far too aggressive for what I am looking to do and an equal amount of skis that ski like a noodle and remind me of a rental ski.

This ski is the perfect balance. Incredibly quick edge to edge and stays planted through everything. WIth that, usually comes some downsides but this ski is missing that aspect. While it is by no means an elf shoe-shaped twin tip, I can definitely slide the tails out of a carve if needed. Most skis this aggressive cannot say the same and it goes a long way in making this a ski I can ski every day - regardless if I am feeling slow and lazy or not.

If you need a frontside ripper that does not have a speed limit but, are also a bit put off by the beer league race skis other companies put out, this is your ticket.

While I have not yet had to use these plugs, I am confident that they will do the job quite well. I was a bit worried that the insertion tool would be too sharp but I have ridden with the tool and plugs in my pocket several times and not even noticed it was there. The plugs look to be a bit thicker than other plugs I have seen so I am hoping that I will be able to plug even larger holes without doubling up.

Talk about a do it all bike... If you want to ride down anything without having to push your bike up the hill, just get the LT. It pedals great (obviously not as well as short travel XC bikes) and descends even better. This bike loves to go fast and the 29 inch wheels are the perfect way to get up to speed and maintain that speed. This bike just doesn't quit. If you are in the market for a longer travel 29, look no further.
