I've been telemarking for about 5 seasons and figured it was time to attach my heels to the skis again. I grew up skiing - been doing it for 30 years this season. I've also been snowboarding for 20. So, not one to halfass something, I went a bit overboard on a new alpine touring setup.
I ordered a new set of skis from Ski Logik
at the end of last week. They're building a custom set just for me. (a nod to FastSRT8's bespoke-ness?) I get to choose the dimensions, the flex, the rocker/camber profile, and the topsheet. I'm aiming for a 180-190cm ski with a 125mm waist, 20m progressive sidecut, rockered tip with some camber underfoot, and a flat tail. But, I have no idea what I should do for the topsheet.
Then, I plan to mount them with Dynafit TLT Radical FTs
. I'm still working on the boots. I'm torn between the Garmont Cosmos
and the Dynafit Mercury
I was hoping the skis would be an online purchase on my Discover, but they entered the card manually. The boots and bindings will be online purchase and, if things work out, will go through the Cashback Mall for an extra 10%.
The only way this could get more expensive is if I bought a Polaris sled to go with the new skis.
