Rottefella Xplore™ is an innovation in backcountry skiing equipment offering a dramatically new skiing experience, positioned between NNN BC and Alpine Touring Tech systems. Xplore offers increased mobility across all types of terrain with enhanced stability and improved control downhill. For many people, the Xplore system is the perfect option for their backcountry and off-track touring adventures. The system's core is the Xplore™ Off-Track Binding and Xplore Boot Sole. The binding is lightweight, with easy entry and exit using the spring-loaded pins in the Xplore sole. The heel plate has a pull-up climbing bar. It comes with a medium flex plate for all types of terrain, with an add-on Hard Flexor for more control in the downhills or a free pivot plate for maximum range of motion while climbing. These are easily changed in the field during your tour. The Xplore Sole is anti-skid, flexible, and stable, with the binding fulcrum point moved back as close to the foot as possible for better mobility and comfort. It flexes smoothly and provides a more natural walking feeling on and off the binding. We think the Xplore system is ideal for a broad range of backcountry users who are looking for more comfort and performance than the NNN BC system can offer but want to travel more lightly than Alpine Touring gear. The Xplore system is designed for 60-110mm skis. Many people will choose skis that have fish scales for ease of use with removable, add-on skin for climbing. There are also options for kick wax skis/skins as well. We expect many of our customers to jump on Xplore, as it will be perfect for mountain touring, hut trips, and small peak bagging. It provides a versatile, comfortable new option that makes it more fun to explore snowy fields, mountains, forests, and trails.
