AXL main
Dek: 
Twenty-Two designs has been a long time pinhead favorite thanks to their popular Hammerhead binding. The release of the AXL, a binding with a free pivot mode, has answered prayers of telemarkers everywhere.

When my touring buddies shoot condescending remarks about my inefficient freeheel tendencies, I pretend to acquiesce. I stroke their fragile alpine egos with my agreeance. I might be slower on the skin track and not as aggressive on the descent, but I’m in no hurry to convert to their Dynafited or Fritschied ways. I love tele in all its quasi-soulful, hippy glory. Then Twenty-Two Designs released the AXL, a rugged tele binding with a free pivot mode for touring, and while I failed to silence my friends, I could hang.

Snow in Hawaii
Dek: 
Yes, you read correctly. It snowed in 49 states this week— Hawaii included.

Ever think it only snows in cold places, like Alaska, Colorado, and Montana? Nope. It snows on tropical islands too.

According to HawaiiNewsNow, Florida is now the only state without snow. The Big Island received a dusting of snow on Mauna Kea, a nearly 14,000 foot dormant volcano. If you measure from the mountain's oceanic base, it's taller than Everest. Makes sense it gets cold every now and then.

Mountain Hardwear DryQ
Dek: 
Mountain Hardwear’s new Dry.Q collection is highly breathable, even if you're a heavy sweater.

Mountain Hardwear’s new Dry.Q collection, which includes the Dry.Q Elite jacket, takes aim at what the company calls outmoded waterproof-breathable membranes that don’t start breathing until you get hot—and maybe even clammy—leaving you susceptible to the uncomfortable sweat-chill cycle. The Dry.Q membrane, which boasts an impressive 40,000-mm waterproof rating and “always-on” breathability transports your body’s heat before it becomes moisture vapor. That means you stay dry and comfy, whatever the weather.
