Re: Race in Cambourne 18th September

The Sunday before Berlin marathon, there is going to be an open race in the small hamlet of Cambourne Not so much a small hamlet, more of a vile, soulless housing estate/quasi gated-community for corporate drones who want to dwell in cheesy ersatz McMansions built by Bovis and Wimpey and escape the...

But if I have yours, I too will be good at Slalom... Quite right... them's magic boots ;) (it can't have anything at all to do with the guy in them at all :evil: ) Thanks for letting me know what you love/hate about current FSKs, I wonder how such a similar frame has managed to help with the balance

ooh that's interesting! I guess we weren't going to know for sure about the liner 'til someone tried them side by side (and most people aren't rich enough to do that ;)) It's also bad news to hear that the boot minus the heelplate is crackable.. because if this is right - Salomon's opssibly future s...

:)

I just thought that with the +Gs they were practically perfect "out of the box" - now there's another £40 to spend - perhaps Ed! will have an importing route by the time these are available ;)

Fantastic review - thanks for getting that Mike!

It's surprising that they got cheap wheels made with Seba brand... I thought they were going to have Hyper +Grip :(

Do they ever do K2 UFS? I know Salomon championed it but the one good thing about K2 is that they make some big skates.

Let's wait. I know that many riders in Russia prefer Xmax to Slab at this moment.


What is it that you guys don't like? The restrictive ankle strap or is it more than that that annoys you? The new liner?

Yeah the official machine makes them frighteningly hot. The metal buckle burns sort of hot ;) So it's not the sort of temperature you would get at home from a hairdyer - although that would be a start! Other than that - go to somewhere with the heat moulder and smile sweetly (or hold up your toddler...

You might have a problem camping anywhere you feel like it as it is not allowed.


Plus unless you are a character from Lord of the Rings you might find it scary to wake up to find a pony licking your face.

But there are lots of very quiet roads with very smooth surfaces (after years of being used by cars but not re-tarmaced) so if you want to see some lovely views on skates (most people cycle but ...

My French is crap so I don't know if they are in stock, but I am quite impressed by their choice of standard wheels with the skate :)
