Take two. Huh, you ask? Well, I just lost draft one of this thing due to Satan having written the code for WordPress…so there you have it.

The point? The long story short? Dynafit’s TLT 6, the updated version of the TLT 5, and their new ski weapon, the Cho Oyu, are both fantastic.

Here’s why: The TLT 6 builds upon the superlight, crazy efficient, skis-like-a-mofo TLT 5 by improving some hardware, making the fit more accessible to more people, upgrading the liner, and maintaining its downhill mojo. Hot damn. As for the Cho Oyu, it’s a glimpse at the new wave of boards from Dynafit–carbon infused, ricockulously light (under 1100g per ski), and surprisingly solid on the down. Start saving your pennies, people, because you’re going to love this stuff.

We'll see, the Cho Oyu may ski like a wet noodle. I'll let the early-adopters find out first.

Wildsnow got the drop on you.

Lou's review didn't include any time in the TLT 6 or Cho Oyu, Ray...just a preview of the goods. When you get a sec, dig into my review and check out the comments on the skiing performance of the Cho Oyu...I expected it to indeed "ski like a wet noodle," but was pretty surprised at its (and the Nanga Parbat's) edge hold on firm snow. I'm not super heavy (165lbs), but they were pretty damn good for being soooooo light!

Keep your eyes peeled, I'm sure Lou will get on them at some point and I'm always interested/psyched to hear his views on the stuff...

Few more turns left this year...go get some!

Your link is dead and I can't get to your site. I'm interested.

I skinned and skied Hood this week, it was blazing hot and soupie for 5K feet. I'm moving toward some alpine.
