DowsesWaxIs it worth getting a pair when I get new boots or should I just stick with alpine?
charmanderare you going to be touring?
if not, then get alpine soles for more consistent release.
onenerdykidIf you want more traction, easier walking, and just as safe of a release as an alpine binding (when combined with a WTR compatible binding) then go for it. But again, your binding has to be compatible with the WTR sole and not all bindings are.
What binding are you or will you be using?
Just to be clear, a WTR sole is just as safe and consistent in its release as an alpine binding is when that WTR sole is combined with a binding that accepts it.
DowsesWaxBoth my skis have the Dual FKS/Pivot WTR compatible bindings. I'm going to get a pair of boots at the end of this season or next season and I was wondering if I should just get WTR boots since my bindings are compatible. A lot of WTR boots have walk mode buckles in the back which I thought may reduce downhill performance.
