Knee articulation in action.
Upgraded from the Mallet 2's to the Mallet 3's. Shaved 32 grams and I'm stoked on the gold!
Mountain bike shoes with flat soles work better than shoes with lugged soles. I cut down some of the lugs on Northwave Aerlite SBS shoes and have solid traction when not clipped in.
If you're looking for a more compact multi tool check out the Cutter Switch. It is smaller in size. Does not have the Torx 25.
Less bulbous than the Smith Holt I wore last year - slim lines and a solid fit. TBD concerning the durability issues mentioned by phunk. Haven't eaten it this season, yet.
I normally run a 27.5 in Salomon. 27.5 in these Rossi's didn't leave enough room for them toes.
These toasty little buggers have become my shoveling boots, pre and apres ski boots. Extremely easy to slip on/off. The Bota Bags are high in volume, normally I wear a 10.5. I probably could have sized down to a 10 but I don't mind the extra room.
I have a pair of these in my La Sportiva's and love them. Never any problems with impact while running on Xtremely rocky trails.
Oceanman, maybe your sandals were from a "bad batch" ? My Terra-Fi's have been hanging tough for a while now and I love them!
These shoes look fast! I love the fit and generous room in the toe box. Beware, the "quick-drying and breathable mesh uppers" are not removable.
I wore my Vato's everyday this winter and I absolutely LOVE THEM. Profiled like a Chukka but they fit WAY better. Buy some.
Then the Ice Storms are for you! Slip your foot in, crank the Boa and enjoy the snow!
