    That rear entry Atomic is an abomination. The Dynastar Menace is cool but it starts at 169 so not short enough for good small women and teens and the longest length is too short for rippers, fuck.
    Remember, in an earlier heyday Volkl's sported zebra stripes
    ( though I doubt the leopard spots are that )

    I would buy every Mantra M5 they made if they did a heritage version of the Renntiger "R" Weltcup or P9RS....

    I was told this would never happen when i told the rep the striders fits and skis horribly compared to the promachine. Apparently it sells well enough that they donít need to make a good version.

    Good version is relative. So is a ‘fits horribly.’ Not exactly a shortage of 97-98mm crossover boots on the market.

    Its not necessarily the last thats the issue, it just has a massive ankle pocket combined with almost no heel hold. For me, and everyone I know who skis hard who tried it, its a horrible boot, I’m sure it fits some people well.

    This is why boot testing requires a certain mindset.

    exactly. I ski the strider and like the current fit.

    Ya, I have 2 sets of WTR P18 AFDs. Iím hoping to be able to swap those out for Grips once I get ride of these stupid WTR boots.
    That part is discontinued from Look/Rossi, which leads me to believe that they will produce a Grip AFD for P18.

    Obviously red is the fastest but pink being a shade of red is going to be pretty damn fast.

    Cool new limited release boot from Lange. RX soles but in 140 flex (normally not available) with Worldcup race liner and obviously 1988 Pink Panther XRi color scheme.

    going forward pivots are going to ship with a GW/Alpine comparable AFD, which will replace the current one. The flat 5355 AFD will continue to appear on the 15 and 18 race binding.

    As someone in the know, they aren't hiring "fashion industry designers" they are almost always in house graphic designers that do work on their entire line of products and look at global trends in design and graphics.
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    I was about to start snowboarding but now I reconsidered... lol

    Serious: Black Crows has the graphics that please me the most as a stubborn Swiss architect BUT I think they are getting less and less exiting. This year was great but next year looks weird. Like some of their first graphics the most.

    Snowboard gear is now updated, too:

    Colorado seems like a sweet place except for the people that go there because it seems like a sweet place making it no longer a sweet place...

    High end fashion show fuckery (which I also despise) is a little different than a global trend.

    Anyone know lengths on the revolt 121? Hoping for a length in the 188-192 range.

    nice - thanks. Cool to see Extrem's 2020 range - it is looking very good indeed!

    It is a bit odd, but BCs 2020 are looking less and less awesome for each time I look at them. That being said, their new Ferox freebird ski (grey freebird skis with seemingly some titanal or something going on) is looking somewhat interesting

    Hm, I have yet to see 2020 BMTs. I know that they are in the dealer catalogue, so curious to see how they have fared.

    I still think ARV116 might be the best graphics posted thus far. Loud, but awesome. (#7 ski from left - the one with the skulls )
