Haven't been on for a while, but have been reminded that Epic is the home of all things ski geek - I mean this in a good way - and I need your information, please!
I've recently been to see a biomechanics expert and boot-fitter (and top trainer, too - he's seen me ski in stress conditions, most recently a BASI technical skiing exam) who, after some other work on my boots, recommended I ski with a 0deg ramp angle (ie, no difference sole-to-snow at heel and toe). My current set up (on Dynastar contact 4x4 with dedicated binding) is a 3mm heel-high ramp.
He wants me to ski on flat for a month or two but said not to be surprised, after experimenting, if I found a toe-high set-up even better.
So, the queries: I've just bought a pair of Rossi S5s, no bindings. What binding would you recommend?
And finally: I'm also looking for a new pair of slalom skis - I've previously used Salomon 3Vs, which I loved. However, I confess I have no idea what their current configuration is; I believe they are flattish, but don't know. I've heard the same about Atomic. Any ideas?
I'd also accept advice on what bindings can be shimmed up to make them flat!
My thanks for reading and, I hope, contributing!
