A couple pages over (here: ski press AT bindings), there is info on Atomic and Dynastar re-packing Silvretta's and Naxo's to actually of AT bindings. I wonder how long until they'll either just buy one of those smaller companies to improve distribution and price???

Anyone looked over the new Icelantic boards? If so, whaddya think? Also, any other fat or superfat, highly sidecut boards (ala Phantom or Icelantic) that look interesting out there? Any of the major manufacturers have anything headed that direction yet?

I have had my Icelantic Scouts for about a month. Bought them mainly for using in deep pow where they excel but suprisingly they carve extremely well on packed snow and blow thru transitions. The sidecut really performs as advertised. Fat but short with surface area of skis 40cm longer makes riding in the park and stomping big air a blast. I also mistakenly thought that they would not be as easy to fakie carve as my longer twins but alas again was happily suprised to see that the sidecut works in reverse just as well. Have become the fav of my quiver.

How about the POC helmets and gear? Did any one here check them out? I saw on SkiPress they won the Volvo Award at ispo.

The Atomics shown-well, hey they look pretty ugly.
The Salomon's- The sleekest of the bunch.
The lime green Krypton- gotta love that color.
The others shown- ho, hum.

Not that any of my comments have anything to do with the performance of any the boots shown. Just personal observations. I readily concede that there's no accounting for taste.

EDIT: typo.
