Finally, the NTN rips

When it first debuted, Rottefella's New Telemark Norm boot and binding system wasn't quite perfect. Now, it's getting pretty darn close.
posted: 09/17/2009

In 2007, Rottefella debuted the New Telemark Norm, a binding system that promised to revolutionize telemarking’s age-old cable-binding system by combining ski brakes, step-in entry, and a tour mode. But it wasn’t an instant success. The bindings felt too soft and too heavy, and the boots came in only a few sizes. All that stands to change. Crispi, Scarpa, and Garmont are now making NTN boots in many sizes. And the bindings are burlier. We swear. You can actually hammer a tele turn on these with complete stability. The only bummer: The touring mode isn’t a full free pivot.

Remember what the shaped ski did to skiing...well thats what NTN is doing for Freeheel

Hate running hate being beat up...downhill torques the body...why because the equipment is so good it generates HUGE force and you locked in...so your body takes the G's..Well Freeheel lets you rip without getting beat up. Best yet...the feeling is even greater do to the range of motion. The NTN binding is it. The Crispi boot is it. Hang up the G sticks and drop a knee bomb and dance in the pow pow. Freeheel rocks!
