KAHRU 10th mountain SWITCHBACK tele/bc skis

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I found a pair of these skis, but can't find anything about them. What would be the difference between these and the regular old 10th mountains? And how would that difference affect the skiiability of it?

 

Thanks

Where have you found these skis? The first thing that came to mind was that these are a Karhu 10th Mtn ski paired with a Voile Switchback tele binding.  Just a guess.

That's what I figured, but then I realized it actually says SWITCHBACK on the skis.

Wait, I found out these are the same but with a telemark flex. Not sure how that would affect touring? Less kick and glide but better turns? So much less kick and glide that it would be worthless for ski backpacking in rolling terrain?

I don't know but would guess the "telemark flex" = single camber  = much less glide.  probably great if you just go up and down steep hill, ie hiking for your turns.
