(Note: medium-blue with some yellow fairing pieces on the binding mounts.)
Great fit and great price.
My son says... "I've never heard of Elan."
And I say... "Ingemar Stenmark."
Of course, being 49, part Swedish, and totally dialed-in to the 1980 WOG's (a college buddy of mine skied with the Mahre twins at White Pass on a regular basis) -- Stenmark was the first thing that came to mind.
