Back to the Langes. They incorporated a high back in all the boots for 71-72. About same time thay changed the plastic to some softer crap and added that L shape to the grooves. I tried to race in them for two years, went through three pairs, and then they made the Banchee, which I used for the next 14. I didn't know they had low back boots in that series at all, but I'd say those boots are 70-71
Someone , some thread, maybe this one, said they had 'the ski' poles but there was no picture. Does anyone know if they were actually made for 'the ski' under license or a pole co just trading on the popularity of their color scheme. If it is the later, Colin did a pretty good job on these. The colors are a vinyl wrap. Either way, $5 at the first ski swap of the season.
At least the age can be determined:
Anyone care to offer guesses as to make and model? I think I'll clean these all white skis up and try them out on a deep snow day, during a blizzard.
pic of the sidewall?
Why they are little known and very very rare Kneissl Graphite Star Test Ski.They should sell for $5000 in the shape they are. If you clean them up $20. Yeah Yeah that's it.
I don't know. Kneissl made some nice stuff though that held up pretty good over time. I've had a jones for the White Stars. I made the mistake of skiing someone's pair years ago.
Hey take care of those rusty edges. Geez Man! Your making my eyes hurt with those pictures. Use some Boeing T-9 afterwards.
Good news, I had a hunch they were rare and valuable. One of a kind I'm sure. It'll be fun to take them out once or twice.
A nice heavy dose of rust acts like an aggressive structure for spring conditions, breaks up the suction. But I could talk to my supplier (local dump) about proper ski storage.
To these eyes those sidewalls look 10 years older than 1991.
Joal....There is the double pivot of the original Nevada but by this time Look had moved on to the single pivot for some time. Anyone recognize these toes?
Here's a few more angles to look at as well as the early Look....
The Rossi 4Sk thread got me think'n about the original/replica thing. So here is a pic of what I've got (and need) so far...
I'm looking for an original hart javelin SL and the replica Olin Mk IV
As shown below, hart javelin replica, circa 1998. Original K2 244, mid 70's and the K2 244 replica, 2011. Original Rossi 4Sk, 1988 and Rossi 4S replica, 2009. K2 Extreme 8.3, 1991 and K2 Extreme, 2009.
The guy selling the Slaloms at the time had a pair of GS also but I could not afford both. In hindsight they were cheap. 'The Ski' of course. Authier made a replica of their early 50's Vampire plywood ski. It would be impressive if there are any of those around. And the Rossi Olympic 41 anniversary ski.
You can check the DIN with my Lipe Release Checker (sorry no picts)
I had the exact ski/binding setup in the middle. The Fishers are long gone
but I still have the Simplex toes(notched) & Rotamat heels.
just picked these up today. I wasn't really interested in the rossis but they were free. the fischers are nice looking. I've never seen these marker bindings before. anyone have a year for the fischers? they say silverglass
The Rossi SM's were '79-'80
Fischer's are earlier, I'd say early 70's
First year 727's Pre DIN and all metal version. The only non DIN binding that passed DIN standards.
