    Interesting. This is making me rethink the race to 1,000g skis. Could consider the binding/ski aggregate and make up the extra grams by choosing a lighter binding. Hello MTN or ATK.

    I really like the heel riser flaps that cover the heel pins so you can tour and transition without turning the towers. I think the MTN has that as well. Kind of a necessity for me now.
