2013 Fully Functional Five NAS Ski Review

Let’s talk about these Lib Tech Full Functional Five Skis for a moment. So, you want a pair of wide skis that are designed for the powder but you can take into any terrain? Well, these FFF Skis are the ones for you. I’m talking Magne-Traction edge grip for superior control and catch-free tips and tails. You combine that with reCurve and you have easy turn initiation and float so you’ll be smoother than Barry White’s voice. Smooth as in ice or pow, it stays smooth. Now beans are the musical fruit but they also make for one heckuva topsheet. The environmentally friendly topsheet is indeed made with beans and when you have a sustainable Aspen Core then you are riding on one pair of durable and versatile narrow a$$ snowboards. Packed full of features, the Lib Tech Full Functional Five Skis are jolly-good fun with a sweet set of graphics.

2013 Fulltilt Classic Ski Boot Review

The Full Tilt Classic remains a classic for so many reasons. The Original 99mm shell has a narrow fit in both the forefoot and shaft of the leg, and is has the best fit for a taller skinny person. The #6 Flex and 7 Rib Tongue gives this Classic a smooth and natural flex, for comfort and control over your skis. A Rigid Bootboard gives the Classic a lot of responsiveness, and better feel of the snow. The Classic has the trademark Full Tilt 3 Cable Closure System that will keep your feet locked in a secure evenly across all areas of your foot, especially the instep and shaft of the leg. The Nylon Buckles are lightweight and easily adjustable. A Intuition Quick Fit Liner is body heat activated that means that the more you wear your Classics the better they will feel. Known best for its lightweight and secure fit, the Full Tilt Classic has seen many other boot designs come and go while it still is used by skiers who are looking for the Original 3 Piece ski boot that best fits narrow feet and legs.

2013 Fulltilt Seth Morrison Ski Boot Review

Seth has been using the Full Tilt shell for 20 years now for a reason…power and control. This season Full Tilt has made some improvements to their classic shell. First of all they widened the big toe corner by 1.6mm for a slightly roomier fit in the toe box. Second Full Tilt has added replaceable natural rubber soles for a longer boot life, and better walking, and hiking on rocks and ice. The #8 tongue is the second stiffest tongue that Full Tilt offers for even more power and energy transfer over your fattys. A rubber active boot board will dampen out most shock and vibrations that you would get from stomping monster back flips. The Intuition Pro Liner is 100% heat moldable and can be totally customized for your feet. Heel slippage has never been an issue with these bad boys due to the extra J-Bar that is internally built in around the ankle. The Full Tilt 3 Cable Closure system creates the most secure and snug buckling system on the market today. Like most Full Tilt boots the Seth Pro Model fits best for people who have a narrow foot, and narrow shaft of the leg. If launching monster back flips, hiking along cirques, and dodging seracs are your idea of fun, demand the burliest boot, that the burliest skier in the world uses…the Full Tilt Seth Morrison Pro.
