Hey now if you want some Gotamas and your looking for 176 or 183 length theres an online euro shop that is selling them for just about a birthday present kind of price 200 euros so if your looking for that size and you dont mind last years ski then hey go get Gotamad man and heres the website

200 E= $262.74


They charge 50 euros for packing and 50 euros for shipping to america, bringing the total to 300 euros, or $394.11. Still a good deal, for sure. Used pairs go for more than that on TGR.


Thanks for the lead.

Hey man my invoice says total charge is 218.07 eurodollars not 300.00 eurodollars I hope they dont have some hidden 81.93 eurodollars fee because thats not what my invoice says but anyway your right its still a bargain even at 300 euros because Volkls are hot in the US and nobodys really selling them cheap and hey Backcountry.com has Rossignol Axial2 120 with wide brakes for 99.00 shipped so thats a pretty good pair of deals that can be put together to make a nice fattie setup for very low price hey know what I mean.

ramshackle,

The reason the total charge is 218 is because they deduct German VAT from your order. The stated price of €200 includes 16% VAT, so the price is actually €172 + €50 shipping & handling.

The combo deal with P18 wide brakes mounted is very tempting as well, seeing as that binding is discontinued.

I'd rather put 977s on there than an axial2, it'd probably be cheaper too.

I had my shipping calculation wrong, you are right.

Yeah hey there double dimond see Im not as heavy or good or fast as you I think since those bindings your talking about all sound the same as just nailing my boots to the skis I mean I can make a turn or two but Im not Joe Hukster or Jimmy Jib.

IDK if this is sarcasm or not, but I'm not that good by any means. I don't huck off of anything, but I do go fast. Metal bindings make a difference when there is so much torsional force in play, that's all.

Did anyone do a conversion from Euros to US Dollars?
post #9 of 19
Current conversion rate: €1 = $1.3158.

BTW: The 183 Gotamas are gone - only 176 length left. Another good deal is the 07 Mantra at €300. 184 and 191 lengths available.

Don't you know that only yuppies have four or more pairs of skis with bindings in their quivers? And Gotamas? How trendy.

Nice score man, now you just need these. You can tell from the description that they're the bomb.

I did find a an exchange site thank you. Boy I long for the day when The US Dollar was strong against the Euro. I picked up some excellent deals from Telemark Pyrenees back in those day.
post #13 of 19
I just ordered a pair of 176 Gotamas from that site. They are a steal at $290. Fortunately I have some Rossignol Axial Pro 140s with extra wide brakes to put on them.
post #14 of 19
wait so is it 50 euro total for shipping and handling or 100?

they have some excellent prices on there

I ordered the Gotamas yesterday and they charged me 50 Euro for shipping & handling. I got a notice today from UPS that they will be here a week from today.

My Gotamas showed up today. These guys got them to me faster than some US sites have.

Hey no way man those Salomon bindings arent my style I mean they look weird and they might taste like chicken but then what doesnt and besides who said I liked chicken anyway and besides I dont have 4 pair of skis with bindings do I really hey I better go count them.

I must say this deal ROCKED!

I bought two pairs and they only charged me €50 shipping total so I paid $507 total. Turned around and sold em on eBay for $450 a pair! I almost made $400! Almost enough to get the ski's that I'm looknig at.
