    Gear rumors 19/20

    Might as well get it started.

    Rumors/products Im excited about:

    Scarpa maestrale XT - 130+ flex 1490 gram beefed up version of the maestrale rs 2.0 - a boot that tours great and fits me well. A stiffer version with minimal weight penalty sounds great.

    Volkl revolt 121. Guessing its a slimmed down 124/volkl 2. Playful yet chargy fully rockered pow stick.

    What else is happening? Drop some knowledge
    wait!!!! waitwaitwaitwaitwaitwaitwaitwait...Wait!

    Everything is going to be red. It's to make it easier when people ask what to buy.

    Nordica Enforcer 88 and 104 FR and 115 FR

    88 is just a narrower 93 and 100. 104 and 115 have more tail rocker than the 88,93,100

    According to newschoolers k2 is dropping some new ski line that people claim is really cool. Sounds like a blend of the pinnacle and the asymmetric series but isn’t asymmetric and both those lines are staying.

    104 and 115 FR sound like Nordicas approach on the Blizzard Rustler 10 and 11...

    Ive heard about a shorter Sakana from line. Somewhere around or under 160cm. Likely for women. Not sure if it will be a different top sheet or the same.

    New "Hoji Free" freeride boot. Fixes many issues people had/have with the current Hoji: narrower last, carbon cuff, toe welt, 130-flex etc. Rumored weight is around 1550 g, IIRC.

    Hoji discussing it -- I found his comments on heel width and material stiffness vs thickness particularly interesting: https://blisterreview.com/featured/h...renegade-ep-29

    I don't think it's a typical carbon cuff. It looks like a plastic molded part (which, IMO, is preferable to laid up carbon). It may have carbon strands in the plastic, but that is very different.

    I want some. They look like a perfect combo with shifts & sledskiing/touring. Assuming they fit my foot, but Vulcans did so fingers crossed!

    Will this one be more explodey or less explodey than the last one?

    Apparently ON3P is bringing a new model to market in 2020. Iggy mentioned something in the Betel thread, but cannot remember quite what, and do not want to go back and read through the thread to find out

    Iggy also mentioned a new design update for the Billy Goat... curious what that means, im likely to be in the market to replace my Goats next year.

    Theyll go on GS when its time; wonder how long theyll take to sell? 16/17 pre-Asym, stock layup, green sidewalls, stock BG topsheet from that year, drilled 1x for STH2 @ 315mm, no core shots, etc.

    Although, Im a little concerned that my new C&Ds may perform as well as my BGs did, rendering them to overlap status. Will really depend on how the C&Ds feel on the groomer and in chopped up crud. Theyre nowhere near as heavy as my BGs and have a softer flex (tour layup) so, maybe a moot point and the BGs will still have a spot for heavier fresh snow and later in the day chop.

    Seconded. It seems like the new C&D design is way too similar to the Billy Goats compared to what it used to be. I've got a pair of 16/17 191 C&Ds, the first year of asym, full rocker. And think that model could hang in quiver with some BGs.

    Make sense then that ON3P would be some changes, seeing how the C&D has evolved.
