      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Salomon Pocket Rockets

Recommended Posts

I am looking into getting some pocket rockets. A friend of mine mentioned a possible problem with getting skins to fit properly around the tips. Any experience/wisdom on this would be greatly appreciated. grin.gif

Fitting skins on the Pocket Rockets shouldn't be an issue as long as you get the proper attachment...using skins with the clips (as opposed to metal bars) on either end might prove to be most beneficial.

Sorry, that was my first thought though. Apparently pocket rockets are some type of ski as well?

salomon pocket rockets ... for backcountry poweder jibbing. evils3d.gif

 

i think both bd and g3 are making bigger loops now for the tips of fat skis. you will probably have to order them specifically or perhaps even separately. adjustable tails (like the g3 or the bd with the tail system) will be helpful for getting a good fit so that they will stay on, but it's not a big deal if they slide off ...

you can get the special tips if you want, but i have jaks, which are bigger than the pr's and the metal clip has worked fine for a few seasons now. look over at telemarktips.com for a whole slough of ways to make skins stay on a twintip ski.
