Håvard Solås Taugbøl was recently spotted wearing what looked like prototype classic ski boots. A bronze medallist of Oberstdorf'21 clearly aims to improve his performance further next season. It's not very often one gets to hear an assessment of something that hasn't been released yet but Håvard has shared his impressions: "Those are both classic and skiatlon boots. They are made on the same principle as the old ones - with a cuff you can take on and off. These new ones have a higher outside layer though that goes up to the lower legs. How do they work for me? Very good 🙌🏼". In the coming weeks and months we shall see a lot of new gear - all aimed at giving an athlete an edge, whatever small, at…

No, zip-tie is not new must-have accessory for bindings

Blink Fesfivalen is not just a yet another event on the season's roster - it's a bit of a podium walk where one gets to see the very newest in equipment (like prototype ski boots of which later) and trends. So when many a skier and a biathlete started to appear on the photos from Blink with zip-tie over their bindings, people went talking - we at Dailyskier.com received dozens of questions and requests for clarification. Here you have it: Says Henrik Kvissel, Rottefella manager: "It's just a precaution. Simen Krueger's binding got undone at the start of Lysebotn Uphill race after a little collision with a fellow racer. There is no way to establish with a certainty whether it was a once-in-a-million chance, a fault of a particular binding…

Gear News, Newsfeed
Atomic Redster S9 Gen S are different, trust us. Right off the bat: if reading about "supreme stride efficiency" and "enhanced power transmission" is your thing in life - we'll direct you to the manufacturer's website , Atomic does a very good job of concocting good sounding and , no doubt ,scientifically supported things here We just give you a rather superficial impression with a bit of a practical twist: [caption id="attachment_17716" align="alignnone" width="1920"] - they are really one-size fits-all. Atomic brands them as 183 cm but in reality it's more like 175. Which means you won't have any trouble fitting it into your VW Golf[/caption] [caption id="attachment_17720" align="alignnone" width="1920"] - being so short they feel fit for all sorts of off-tracks exercises and are extremely nimble on downhills of…
