Telemark + Touring Boot
In response to the question posed by "sitcarver", this boot can be used as a telemark and touring boot. Important to note, it is only compatible as a touring boot with Dynafit bindings. Also, they are not designed to work on a traditional downhill alpine setup.
Are you serious?
I have read your review. As I am not (yet) 'into' tourskiing I would like to know:
is it really true that the Scarpa TX is suitable for:
Telemark + Tourskiing AND Alpine skiing?
Comfortable and Powerfull
I haven't used many NTN boots so I can only compare these to my experiences with traditional telemark boots. The TX pro is the most comfortable telemark boot I have ever owned. Up until this point I have had to avoid Scarpa Telemark Boots because my ankle just doesn't fit in the cuff. The TX pro resolves that issue. Read More...
Comfortable and PowerfullI haven't used many NTN boots so I can only compare these to my experiences with traditional telemark boots. The TX pro is the most comfortable telemark boot I have ever owned. Up until this point I have had to avoid Scarpa Telemark Boots because my ankle just doesn't fit in the cuff. The TX pro resolves that issue. Skiing the TX pro is very different from my normal setup - Black Diamond Push Boots with 01 bindings. The NTN Free ride TX pro combination is far more powerful than the Push is with the 01 binding, but it also limits how you can ski. The current NTN binding does not allow knee to ski skiing so be ready to be upright. This took me awhile to get used to as the flex pattern seemed to encourage me to let my back leg trail behind which isn't my style I alway try to keep my knee under my body. It took a while, but I found I could keep my knee where I wanted it and I think it improved my tele form in the process of relearning. As a bonus the TX Pro allowed me to crank from telemark carves straight into alpine turns with the most power I have ever experienced on a non plate tele binding and I have the piece of mind that comes with releasability and brakes. The touring mode on the NTN Free ride binding is a disappointment, but Rotefella is coming out with a new binding in 2012 that should tour better. Overall I really like the TX pro boots. They have a great feel and flex pattern + they are lighter and more comfortable than anything else I have worn. With the superior comfort and power I very well may join the ranks of NTN permanently if then can give me a lighter binding that tours better. Until then I will still be using My Black Diamond Push boots and 01 bindings in the backcountry and the Tx Pro boots with NTN Freeride for the resort. Or if I can bring myself to lock my heel I might try the TX Pro boots with Dynafit bindings I am just not sure I can give up the telemark Turn.
