We had 12 pairs last season, took longer to unpack them and input them to stock than to sell them. I think this maybe the most signifiant development in binging design in years, certaily a must for Chamonix.
Other than the price(for some) and the weight(for some) and the fact you need to take out your boot to switch from ski to hike, i cant see any failures here, then we do return 10-20 pair of Fritchi Freerides a year, due to heavy use. Time will tell. We've got 40 pairs on order!
