Rottefella NTN Short telemark bindings with 110mm brakes boast several improvements over traditional telemark bindings, including releasability, a step-in design and the convenience of ski brakes.
The Rottefella NTN Telemark Binding has finally arrived. We've been hearing aobut this new system from Europe for the past decade and we started to think we'd never actually be able to skin on them. We were wrong, and the NTN Bindings are everything we hoped they'd be and more. Traditional 75mm tele bindings simply dont offer the power, performance, and ease-of-use of modern alpine touring and downhill bindings. With NTN, you get the confidence and ease-of-use that come with alpine bindings, but with the free heel and elegance of tele. With the NTN system, the boot is gripped firmly in the binding, independent of the spring tension. There is a direct connection between the ball of the foot and the ski. The flex pattern is consistent and adjustable with Green Rigid or Yellow Medium Power Tubes. With 75mm cable bindings, this connection is indirect and flex is often variable.
Switch your set-up to the super-sturdy and easy-to-use Scarpa (Rottefella) NTN Binding system when your telemark binders donAAAt cut it on steep lines and big cliff hucks. With compatible boots (sold separately) the New Telemark Norm (NTN) lives up to its name once you lock down the forefoot section of the boot with a quick flick of the front lever. Then the innovative binding delivers unmatched boot-to-edge response and great lateral stability for the confidence and power you need to go bigger and faster than the heel-imprisoned alpine brethren you used to envy.
The Rottefella NTN Telemark Binding is truly the New Telemark Norm. The NTN system, gaining in popularity among telemark skiers provides unmatched edge stability and the security and simplicity of an alpine binding while keeping your heel and mind free. The NTN also means you'll never have to bend down to lock your bindings again, a simple poke of your pole and you're securely attached to your skis. The NTN Binding system's Powertubes allow an unprecedented freedom of flex and activity from your binding. The telemark boots used with this binding MUST be NTN compatable. The NTN Binding features: Increased lateral stability, edge control, and adjustable forward flex Adjustable binding position, +/-15mm along the mounting plate with no re-drilling. "Easy in" means you never have to bend over to put on your telemark binding again. With the grip of a ski pole, flick the lever open, step in, and push the lever back down. The NTN binding comes equipped with an integrated ski brake of 110mm St Free pivot touring function, simply flip the tour lever open for free-pivot touring. For steep climbing you can set the heel piece in an upright position. Symmetrical bindings means with NTN bindings there's no left or right ski so you will ride longer on sharp edges. The springs in the NTN binding, with regards to release values, can be pre-tightened or reduced in tightness, though the sideways release system of the NTN binding is not certified according to ISO standards.
Tele skiers are in for serious control and power with the NTN Bindings from Rottefella. With an ease-of-use comparable to an alpine binding, you get optimized lateral stability, and adjustable forward flex, and serious edge control in a binding that's easy to get into (you don't have to bend over to click in) and customizable to your skill and comfort level thanks to Power Tube spring technology. The NTN Binding can mount on multiple pairs of skis with the NTN Mounting Plates - 1 set is included, purchase multiple plate sets to use with more than 1 pair of skis.
