    Not surprised that 25 – 27% is about Dynafit. Remember the old Dynafit boots? I think I still have a pair in the back of the closet.

    Yeah, I get accused of BIAS by other companies in the ski touring industry. Of course some of them have only been selling bindings for a couple of the nearly 30 years of tech bindings and 8+ years of the Dynafit revitalized brand. My coverage simply reflects reality. Annoying as heck to get accused of bias by companies that virtually had ZERO viable ski touring gear just a few years ago. Sheesh, just doing what I can here…

    IMPORTANT: Remember it is the number of reader comments that cause these posts to rank high.

    P.S., and yes Virginia, the bias against telemarking is intentional and real.

    No problem here Lou.
