Sweet poster!

Shouldn't Sx92's be red though?

There's still a need for an easy entry/exit boot. I Assume the sx's were that.

I have a vague recollection of Krystal as a low-end department store type ski.  There is a Krystal listing in the Sept 1970 Skiing magazine where I found those other ski reviews I posted.  No Cober binding listed.

royal,

 

My Dad was skiing on a pair of Krystal Metal skis in the early 70's. With Dovre step-in bindings. They were all black, much like the Head skis of the day. He wound up breaking one of them within a few years.

 

post #4207 of 6486

Was Cober a kind of "X" framed (when looked at from the side) step-in binding?  Was it Cober or Caber?  

 

Krystal by that point was a medium-low end department store brand.

Stranger, not sure what you mean by x-framed. you can see pics of the bindings a few posts back.  the name sure looks like Cober.  and they were made in Italy.

 

RS,   those are the skis.  How do they ski?  the guy I talked to at Alta yesterday said he really liked them but I didn't have much time to talk.  my 6 year old was waiting for me:)

A new find for me.  1985 Lange KR Slalom.  These are another Michel Arpin / JC Killy design.  Made at the Authier factory in Switzerland.

BTW: here's the fleaBay ad for the KR's with one crappy picture. Sometimes you really have to dig to figure out what is being sold.  Advertised as "Salomon Snow Skis" by "Jeam Claude Killy", etc.  $20 + $125 shipping eek.gif  Luckily, I had somebody in TN who was able to do a local pickup for free smile.gif

I have a pair of spalding persenico formidable gs 215 undrilled. Tips are completely plastic covered, base is turbo tex dark navy. I think they are newer than Pete Sobran's that seem to be (left) 1971 and (right) some 1972. Maybe these are of the year after or still 1972, in 1973-1974 there where the Numero Uno. Few pics to discover and please do check your IMG_5417.JPGserial #, mine is 25520.IMG_5415.JPGIMG_5416.JPGIMG_5418.JPG

Pretty cool retro from the 50's.

Caber was a boot.  I had a pair for a season or two, probably 30 years ago, maybe more.  They were every tall, lots of forward lean and foam injected.  After 2 seasons the foam hardened to a rock-like state and they were way too painful to wear.  Those were the worst boots I ever owned.

My latest serial# is 215380 (skis are 205cm, the 215 is part of the 6 digit number). Cool skis, I believe those are the same era but Personico was left on for some parts of the European market that heard of Personico, but not Spalding. Don't drill those!

It's gonna be tough to ski them without drilling them rolleyes.gif

 

We do have a few virgin lovers on here. I just can't see it myself. Binding make them actually useful and I think also look better on display. But that's just me. Unless it's a ski I really want I'll try and pass the virgins along to you guys that like them untouched.

Undrilled, aren't they better for.....

I too had a pair of Caber's in the early 70's. Foam injected, heavier than anything I've ever picked up. Maybe 2-3 years before they were "retired".

I'm in Italy. Please send all three serial # along with measures. In 1969 Evenflo, thru Spalding, previously owned by Questor, acquired Persenico skis and Caber boots, therefore all the skis bearing Spalding brand are post 1969. As you can see from 1970 pics of world cup and world champs in Groden/Gardena, all skis are branded Spalding Persenico. Ciao

Here's something different.  I found this among Dad's old books.  Actually pretty good, and an interesting description of skiing in Europe in the 50's.  The mystery---how does someone get murdered while riding up on a single chair?????

Sniper?, Poison?, the liftie did it?

 

btw, that cover is now on a lot of ski topsheets in one way or another!

Why yes it was a boot of some repute (good or bad depending on the fit and view.  THINK they also put their name on a binding too that was a real mickey mouse piece of engineering.  It had all kinds of exposed springs and joints with a really big critical area that was just right for getting filled with snow and ice so it could not function.

 

Think that it had the Caber branding on it but could be wrong; I had a lot more brain cells back then.

It appears Roland is skiing in Henke Stratos.

I just picked up these Olin Mark VI 195cm with Look N77 Bindings  for $5.99 at a local thrift shop.  Its the first pair I have ever owned.  I used to see Olin skis over the slopes in the 70's and 80's.  Unfortunately, I never got a chance to ski a pair.  Anyone know what year these are from?

Here we go: 200cm Formidables, no numbers anywhere, 205cm Formidables @215380, 210cm Formidables @169917, pre "numero uno" 210cm Siderals @06003, 205cm Starboards @132487.

This is akin to the frame # scrutiny of my Tonti framed Moto Guzzi. It's interesting to see where it leads!
