Volkl Nanuq Touring Skis 177cm with Dynafit TLT Vertical FT bindings (shown in photo)
Lightweight touring ski, extremely versatile, excellent in powder, spring snow & cruddy conditions. Used 5 times, after buying them brand new in Jan '12. This is the 11/12 model with the rocker. Drilled for a sole length of 277mm-288mm (may be a little bit of play outside this range) - my boots are Mondo size 24 and 25.5 and both fit. These really are in excellent condition, having had such light usage. Literally a couple of minor scratches on topsheet, and bases are excellent with a few superficial marks.
Ski only (without binding) - £299
Ski with binding - £599
Courier approx £15 payable by buyer
Ski Trab Stelvio Freeride Light Skis 172cm with Dynafit Vertical FT binding and Black Diamond Skins
Well-used, much-loved touring skis. Superlight skis that ski very well in powder and spring snow. They hold an excellent edge on ice (especially considering their weight) and handle cruddy conditions pretty well (again, especially considering the weight). I bought them in 2009, and skiied them a lot in the first 2 seasons, and maybe once or twice last year. That said, there is still plenty of life left in them, and I was torn as to whether to sell them or not, but have decided to be ruthless with excess kit! Please understand that these skis are in appropriate condition for the usage. One of the bindings has part of the plastic snapped off (doesn't compromise safety or function) and the tip of one of the skis has some damage - best to email me for a photo of these. Drilled for the same sole length as the Nanuq ski above. I'm also including some Black Diamond mohair mix skins, again, well-used. These were purchased with the ski, and have had the same usage. They function just fine - I reglued them at the end of last season. But they are well-used, there are a few patches where the mohair has worn thin, and the glue is okay at the moment but may need redoing (easy to do yourself).
Whole set-up: Skis, Bindings & Skins - £199
