Hwy 26 Mt. Hood isn't a very specific location for headquarters.
Anyhoo - the binding system and slider plates are really intriguing - especially for anyone who has a shitload of 05-06 Lines and an pair of $300 reactor paperweights. The idea of having one pair of bindings and multiple sets of skis is really compelling to people who travel - I live in Arizona and have a Fusion pass. I think I did 10 round trips last year. I bought into the whole reactor system (prophet 130s, 100s, invaders and chronics) and have ended up abandoning the reactors and mounting px12tis all of them. I tomahawked down the west wall at skibowl last december when
my reactors broke, and had given up totally on the idea of the one
binding/multiple ski concept before I stopped cartwheeling. It was really nice being able to pack four sets of skis into a single ski bag and have it come in below 50lbs for air travel, however.
It looks like the amplid bindings are the licensed Vist technology, like 4frnt deadbolts. If so, those are time tested, bulletproof and trustworthy. It looks like this system might warrant more investigation.
"You tell me that I need to bathe and you hand me a white towel and then you tell me how well water treats the skin.
The water's useless to me now, for I could wash for days and I would never really feel quite clean again."
Such a sick company, and a wicked bunch of people. The owners are super legit, long time professional skiers and snowboarders and all about producing sick gear - Europeans!! All their gear is super dope, if you get a chance to get on a pair, do it!!!!
If anyone in oz is interested in amplid gear hit me up.
- Demos will be available. We're currently putting the finishing touches on the program and it should be ready after the holidays
- Tom, Alex, and Steve will be around on occasion but they're both currently busy with college in SLC
- Sliderplate System: We'll keep you posted on when this system hits the North American shores. But yea, it's pretty cool little system. A little side note; skis with inserts can be mounted normally if needed and the pullout strength on the inserts is much greater than conventional mounting.
