|Feel good so far, but have not tested the touring function. One unintended prerelease so far so I will be upping the din.

|SkatePro was incredibly helpful. I live in South Korea, the box came quickly however the packaging was damaged and parts were missing. SkatePro was responsive and immediately shipped the missing parts. Excellent service, would recommend.

|Pricey but worth it. I did find I need to take my gloves off to change the binding from walk to ski. Compacted snow has to removed from the binding mechanism before transaction is possible which could be a problem with numb fingers.
