At first I did think WOW and rushed to share this with some of you more experienced skiers but now I can see it is a bit of a gimmick. I like the fish scale pattern base and the binding being where it is. Kicker skins are easy to add and subtract if needed.It would work, but it's a gimmick I'd never bother to use.
Sometimes it's preferable to move off the standard mounting position for dropping cliffs and doing reverse airs. Also helps for skating backwards. New school.
A very salient point indeed!Still find this a very curious need given in the workshop we were always locating the binding to the optimum balance point for any given ski and this is different for classic and skate so the ski would behave correctly on each stride. Surely dicking about with this requires a variety of strides to learn to accommodate the different ski movement associated with each change in balance point and resulting ski behaviour?
My theory on this is in line with @Telemark Phat re adjusting technique.
What you smokin' Willis?What about moveable tips and tails, so the binding stays firmly anchored in one sturdy spot but the tips and tails can be extended or retracted via a Glide-Grip App to change the binding / boot interface point of balance?
And another Gnarly Turn App to shorten the inside ski and lengthen the outside ski for purrfect turns.
