Quote:
“It is one of the engineering marvels of the world how a tele binding with half the function and parts of an AT binding can weigh over twice as much.”

“AT bindings use a mechanical system of springs and cams to release the skier at a predetermined load. Tele bindings stick with their organic roots by using your ACL as a biological release mechanism. The AT system is reset by stepping back into it, and the tele system is reset by stepping into an emergency room.”

“For years, telemark binding designers have struggled to find a balance between having freedom on the uphill and control on the downhill. The result is a nearly perfect division of performance: the uphill inefficiency is equal to downhill instability.

...Impressive when done well. I have two ripping tele friends I ride with. I couldn't possibly think of doing it. Much respect.

Maybe true, if they're comparing to Dynafit. Marker Tour F12, 4.3lbs. 22 Designs Axl: 4.0lbs. Dynafit TLT: 3/4lbs.

Be carefull of the split board touring setup. I'm still fud up from a fall at walking speed. As I went over the front the toe of my boot was hitting the board and building pressure till my leg turned to the side. Then POP! Torn tendons.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe these are quotes from Andrew McCLean.

I don't know where the quotes from I just saw this at work and thought it was kind of funny.


I think tele skiing generally is much more bad ass than AT skiing. Unless you are going super fast or doing big stuff...

examples:
http://jasondorais.blogspot.com/2012/02/middle-teton-speed-ascent-from.html
http://andreasfransson.blogspot.com/2012/02/my-favorite-type-of-ski-day.html

AT skiing seems like a great way not to have fun on the downhill.

touring with marker dukes etc.. is like touring in softboots and strap bindings, fun until you realize it sucks :wink:

Telemarking- the original method of skiing. Used to go from town to town in Europe long ago. deliver the mail ect.

There wouldnt be any snow sliding if not for telemarking

And to see it done in steep terrain is a work of art.
