A strong partnership gives excellent results.

Xplore is the result of a strong and innovative partnership between product developers from Alfa, Rottefella and Åsnes. After many years with prototypes and field testing, the result is finally here: Xplore.

Xplore is made of 3 parts:

1.

A new binding from Rottefella,

2.

Shoes from Alfa designed to be compatible with the new binding,

3.

Ski’s from Åsnes designed to complete the Xplore concept.

The bindings from Rottefella

The bindings from Rottefella have a broader attachment point than traditional backcountry bindings therefore giving greater stability. You can also adjust the binding to the terrain by changing the flex that comes with the binding to a hard flex with more resistance for better control on fun descents. Changing to a free-pivot plate will give full rotation for a more comfortable stride and energy conservation on the climbs. The integrated heel lifter results in an easier stride uphill. In addition, Rottefella have improved the skiing experience, by moving the rotation point closer to the foot.

The ski boots from Alfa

The Xplore collection from Alfa is comprised of lightweight and stable backcountry boots in classic and contemporary Alfa design. These are boots which are equally good for training trips as they are for covering long distances. The snug fit of the boots makes them perfect for ski-play, a trip with friends, training and long distances. The sole of the boot is constructed so that lateral twisting is prevented but still allowing the shoe to bend under the ball of your foot. This means you get a natural stride with good control on the descents. The outer sole is made of a soft rubber blend with a rough pattern, giving safe grip in winter conditions when it’s necessary to walk on snow without skis. With the Xplore system, your experience on backcountry ski’s will be more comfortable and with improved stability on the descents. Ski Mountaineering technology has found its way into the backcountry world.
