Comments about Rottefella NTN Short Telemark Bindings with 110 Brakes:
Now that there is finally an NTN boot on the market small enough for my foot, I have been able to experience what the NTN (New Telemark Norm) system is all about, and WOW is it fun! So far I have only used these bindings in a resort setting, mounted on Volkl Aura skis, and the rock-solid interface they provide between boot and binding makes for very consistent and powerful tele turns. Because of the way the boot is held in the binding, under the ball of the foot instead of with a cable stretching around the heel, the occasional "tippy toe" feeling that happens with most 75-mm telemark bindings just doesn't happen with NTN. Once I got the feel of the boot in the binding, I could ski faster and longer with much less fatigue, and it is easier to ski confidently in variable snow conditions.
Even though the system is a bit expensive, the ability to adjust the release tension of the springs is worth the price.
Warning: most folks, myself included, will have a bit of a learning curve when first using the NTN system. It very much favors a more compact stance as opposed to an older-style, more spread out position. It took me a couple of days to start to feel comfortable doing tele turns. This system would probably be great for a skier transitioning from an alpine background, as the boot/binding interface is so much more solid than most telemark bindings.
