They say life begins at forty......and so does arthritis, dementia and the desire to try touring. Having researched the available gear i am more confused then before i started.
My stats: i am 41,weight 80kg’s, height 181 cm, have been skiing since i could walk, last fifteen years almost exclusively off piste.
Gear so far: ski: my old dynastar 8800 89mm under foot, 188 in length (i know a bit, too long for touring) mounted with dynafit tlt radical (yet to acquire; possibly splash out on the plum guide).
Then the boots....? Technica Cochise 120 ? Dynafit Titans ? Garmont Radium. What i have gleaned so far is that they are all have a stiff flex pattern (which is what i am after), but what is their ‘tourability’ like? technica appear to be lighter then the Titans, but some have said they have a more restricted range of movement in walk mode? How do their walk modes differ and how much does it matter. How difficult would it be to do a multi hut/day tour with this set up. Any help or advice would be most appreciated.
