Norway outlaws fluoride products from junior competition (<16 yr olds)

For reasons of health and environment but also to eliminate the class difference between the haves and have-nots since these products are typically very pricey. It's done even though it's virtually impossible to check if fluoride is used. A good step IMO. XC is already too costly as it is, and effec...

Re: Rottefella Electric

Since there are no mention of the Electric on Rottefella's site any more, I sent them a mail to see if the binding was dropped, but they replied it was not, but could not say when it will be out. My guess is that since their Move System is just being rolled out they are just hiding it so anyone (lik...

Re: Rottefella Move System

Yes, with the 'Switch Kit', one can use different plates like for NIS 1, Salomon, Atomic, Fischer etc.

Funny like you say with two knobs to turn, but I think I saw somewhere that Turnamic is anyway going to copy the move system where their knob does more than just open and close the binding like now.

Re: Rottefella Move System

Yes, just the bindingplate with the mover alone is around $100. (This lets you use most newer bindings with it)

Re: Traditional ski making in Norway

My father just saw the video and said when he was young his ski was almost exactly the same as in the video with the carved tip and even with the etched stripes, but maybe not surprising as he came from Telemark not far from Morgedal and this was in the 40s and 50s and hand-me-downs so probably a mu...

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Yes but the tool will also align the wheels in the vertical axis as well, although any misalignment there probably doesn't affect the ski as much.

Re: American Birkie 2018

Good technique and nice place to practice there although I did see at least one nasty hole in the asphalt.

I take it everything is still fine after the procedure or are you still holding back?

Re: Rottefella Move System

Rottefella replied to my inquiry that the electric binding has not been dropped, but just not sure when will be out.

Re: A weekend with Marie Dorin

It's not bad at all the little I can see of it. I don't have any style to be able to give advice, but noticed becoming much freer after I started wearing protective gear like knee and elbow pads so maybe something to consider. If I was a beginner again, I would even use hip protection and helmet wit...

Re: Rottefella Move System

The Move binding is now in shelves here in Oslo for around $180.

Sadly it looks like Rottefella has pulled the electric binding idea..

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

Thanks for the tip, I've sent them a mail if it's possible to demo the skis. You're welcome. I believe they have special official events with roller ski demos in the same way e.g. Alewalds has here in Sweden, but maybe they can arrange something just for you. I would especially recommend you to tes...

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

To align the skis, the best I've seen so far is something like this from Rundle Sports : https://i.imgur.com/nIOg9PJ.jpg They are sold out but I suppose it's possible to make something similar oneself. Best alignment solution is probably something using lasers, but not sure how that would work.

Re: Classic vs Skate Roller Ski Tracking

I've already been at their free roller ski course which was great so I guess lending out skis is not that far of a stretch, I just never thought about it. Yes, definitely the IDT skate is on the short list together with the Swenor. With the new type brake that attaches to the boot these skis are now...
