Will REI carry the new Rottefella Xplore Binding, Alpina Alaska XP boot or any of the new Alfa boots (Free, Skaget, Vista) this season?  If so, which boots and when will they be available from REI

Xplore - Bindings for mountain skis - Bindings and accessories | Rottefella - invented in Norway

I'm interested in the Xplore binding and boot setup, too! I plan to buy as soon as REI makes them available.  REI:  please provide some information!  Thank you!

Thanks for reaching out!

We're working on tracking down this information for you. We'll circle back with you here in the community as soon as we have more to share.

Thank you for your patience!

Hello @REI-JohnJ -- I'm also interested, and also part of many forums of folks who would love this gear.  I ask that REI please keep gender equity in mind, and offer more common women's sizes as well as men's (for example, REI currently doesn't offer any 75mm smaller than 40, which means the average-or-smaller woman can't get 75mm boots at REI).  Hopefully with the Xplore system, REI will keep all sizes/genders in mind.  And hopefully REI will offer the XPLORE system!  Thanks!

@REI-JohnJ   Bump.  Update?

@OldXCguy @brwilkinson @SierraSkier @Tiefschnee 

Thank you for the 'bump' and for your patience as we wait to hear back with the information you're looking for. I can confirm that we are planning to carry the products you have listed above, however, at this time, I don't have more information other than that to share. I have connected with the team working on getting this product in, so I will circle back here when I know more about timelines.

I asked about these a while ago by email and was given the product id's as below. 

https://www.rei.com/product/203137 (Xplore)
https://www.rei.com/product/203280 (Alfa free)


Obviously they are blank, since there is no stock yet. 

Here too express my interest. I have two new pairs of skis waiting for this binding and some fresh boots. 


Add me to the list as well...  I want new skis, but I am waiting for these innovative, lightweight bindings and Xplore Alpina Alaska boots.
