    Can anyone speak to the Pro HD vs the AX HD in terms of the lower shell clog stiffness? Are they the same? Is the flex difference in the tongues?

    Iím looking for the AX for room, but want the stiffer flex.

    Thanks in advance!

    AX is on a wider last (100mm vs 98mm), just like to current crop of Lupos. Can't say for sure, but I would imagine the stiffness characteristics are the same.

    I think if you got the same tongue that is on the Lupo HD (B flex or whatever the equivalent is now) they would feel pretty close in stiffness. The clog (lower or scaffo) is thinner on the AX to achieve the wider last, so they may not be as stiff as the 98mm last models. I can feel a difference in flex in the AX125 and the Lupo Carbon for sure, but the tongues are a different stiffness as well.

    Thought this was an interesting product. Add an airbag to any pack?

    The other product in the lower left hand corner makes me think of these too:

    Arva's new 1800g airbag 25L pack and 2180g 40L pack. Pretty impressive weights - pretty sure that's the lightest on the market now (or when it hits stores). The system looks impressively compact too, giving you more space for gear and resulting in a less bulky pack. They also split the bag in two, so you can get a puncture on one side and have a still-inflated airbag on the other. They also have a super small beacon - would be nice for keeping it in the pants.

    New 45g binding... not really for this crowd, but cool to see the innovation. Could see applications for a lighter weight CAST when in tour mode, especially if they figured out how to make the FKS heel removable too - it could come in lighter than most 300g bindings, I bet.

    Damn, that's tight. Looks like a good one to home brew/D.I.Y. Add a few grams with heel lifters that go to 11 though.
    What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?

    Updated ATK freeraider apparently, although the wanker that edited this video put images of the current Freeraider in, which is confusing.
    New one appears to have the brake at the heel.

    That's pretty cool. You really can't possibly get any more simplistic than that.

    Wow, those Arva packs are super light... Kind of a big gap between 25 and 40 liters though... Would be nice if they had one right in between... Does the 25 actually have a shovel pocket etc, or is it super stripped down like their current ultralight 25?

    Alpinstore.com has the EVO 5 available for preorder at $225US. I went with a Pieps Micro last season solely for the pocketability. It's been fine so far, but I like the layout of the Arva more.

    The brakes at the heel have been available for a while. Compatible with all ATK bindings, even the skimo ones. Same ones that come with the Crest. Adds 80g per and has adjustability (25mm? Not entirely sure).

    Your heel lifter might weight more than the entire binding

    Was thinking for approaching ice and alpine climbs this would be good.
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Wow, they actually ski that Grizzly binding down hill. For sure thought it was a uphill race only binding.

    Before anyone rips on their style, keep in perspective the gear they are skiing.

    Hi again
    About Aerosize vest - Made in Poland (They consulted some features with me ) - feel free to ask any question
    How it works:



    About Arva airbags - don't forget guys that you need to add XXX grams to each backpack (all weights are WITHOUT canisters / cylinders). Overall you are fucked in United States :P No Carbon canisters, so in this case you need to add ~530g to each backpack model. So 40L = 2700g - same weight as an Mammut PRO 45L RAS 3.0

    ^^ They're also on super skinny ultralight skis - not really something you can drive aggressively.

    Actually the brakes works with all ATK bindings except the Raider 2 12 and Freeraider 2 14 since they’ve got a wider pattern at the heel, right ? The brakes works only with the "standard" heels I guess, since they basically are a R01 plate with brakes.

    I hope they’ll also update the Raider 12 with brakes at the heel.

    Btw the grey binding next to the freeraider 14 also looks like a Raider with brakes at the heel, maybe it's the new 12 version ?

    Did they change the mount pattern of the toes ? No more super wide toe plate on the 14 ?

    No argument there.

    The boots are also super light- look like a new Scarpa Alien, Alien RS, and LaSportiva Sytron.
    My point is more that they didn't just use the Grizzly binding for a pure uphill race.

    Looking at the binding, I thought it would explode or prerelease if you even skied a mellow groomer at low speed.
