Rottefella NTN rebate offers $100 for telemarkers ready to commit

Sep. 24th 2010

Cool news for telemarkers! Rottefella is offering a $100 rebate for those who purchase both NTN bindings and any NTN boot, including the SCARPA Terminator X, Terminator X Pro and TX Comp, between Oct 1, 2010 and January 31, 2011.

Coming into it’s fourth season, the NTN system is the most innovative telemark binding system, offering more power, performance and ease of use than any other telemark binding available. The binding and boots from SCARPA’s NTN collection have won Backcountry Magazine Editor’s Choice Awards each of the last two years.

To get the rebate, which comes in the form of a Visa gift card after purchase, you just have to send in a receipt for boots and bindings dated between Oct. 1, 2010 and Jan. 31, 2011, along with the filled in form from Rottefella. To get a copy of the form, just click on the ‘more’ button at the bottom of this post, then save the form to your desktop and print out.  These forms will also be available through retail shops that sell the NTN system and at ski demos where you try the NTN system.

Stay tuned, Rottefella is planning an NTN tour across the U.S. this season. We’ll post the details as soon as we know.

    Why are European customers excluded from this offer?

      While it may seem exclusionary, only two countries are included in this offer – Canada and the US. The service being used to execute this rebate has many limitations that make this offer pretty much impossible on a global scale.

      All I can say is you won’t be disappointed in the NTN system, rebate or no rebate… : )

    Can anyone comment on how well ntn/scarpa tx affect uphill performance? I normally wax instead of using skins.

      In general, the biggest benefits to using NTN is the downhill performance and control. The staff at SCARPA North America all use NTN when telemarking (by choice not by mandate : )

      We all backcountry significantly more than we ski resort as well, and we all love skiing the NTN system. Regardless, if you are waxing, not knowing any more about where you live and how you like to ski, I’d assume that you are more among the ‘fast and light’ crowd.

      If you like to ski downhill fast in any conditions, if you ski big skis… if you like ‘alpine-style’ convenience of (almost) step-in and brakes, and better control and power, then we’d strongly suggest you look at NTN.

      To specifically answer your question: We ski NTN, uphill and downhill. If you compare it to a traditional cable binding, NTN tours better! If comparing to a free-pivot cable binding, it’s arguably equivalent. If comparing to NNN-BC, there’s not much comparison… one is modern day, high performance telemark and the other is traditional nordic touring.

    Telemark Skier’s 2011 Buyers Guide review of the Rottefella NTN mentioned “Testers found this year’s NTN transfers more power to the balls of your feet…” Is there a manufacturer’s number or other indicator on the gear we can check ensure we’re getting the latest design at the local ski shop?

      Unfortunately, I can’t speak to specifically what the ‘Testers’ found.

      The reality is that the performance of last year’s NTN Freeride binding to this year’s is identical. Same cartridges, same angles, same materials, same molds.

      There have been some minor tweaks but nothing that would affect performance.

      What happens more often than not is that folks adjust to the binding feel and therefore, like it better. If testing NTN, take it out for a day. It won’t be until you get on your old 75mm setup that you realize how much of a power difference the NTN system provides!

    Where is te manufacturer’s number (don’t all manufactured products have one)? or other indicator on the binding, so we can check ensure we’re getting the latest design at the local ski shop?

      Yes there are product numbers and upc codes… but these are modified at the discretion of the manufacturer and were not changed from last season to this season.

    If I have a scarpa prodeal, does that mean it was purchased under a “promotion” and that I would NOT be eligible for the rottefella rebate?

      Prodeal definitely qualifies as a ‘promotion’. It’s always good to ask, though… : )

    Hi – to qualify for the rebate do you have to purchase the boots and binding from the same shop? that is can i purchase the boots from one retailer and the bindings from a different ski shop and still qualify for the $100 rebate?

    i just want to know if you purchase the ntn bindings and the boots from two seperate shops would i still be eligible for the 100 rebate? thanks

      No problem! As long as you follow the instructions for proof of purchase, you qualify. The Rebate program ends 1/31/11 though….

    I love my setup the TX-Pro are a very comfy boot!
    I sent in my rebate over 16 weeks ago. I called Rottafella a few weeks ago and they said that they had the rebate approved, but the funds were not approved to issue the rebate. Called again today same reply. Not good business practice to promote new gear, take the money and run.

      If there is an issue in the redemption process, it is a temporary, administrative issue…

      We will sniff it out from SCARPA’s end but so far, Rottefella has been totally on the up and up on this generous offer and any/all valid redemptions have been honored. This is definitely not a smoke-and-mirror’s marketing ploy.

      I know it can be frustrating considering you’ve waited patiently for 16 weeks when it should take 8-10 weeks to fulfill.

      Thanks for letting SCARPA know about your issue!
