Rottefella NTN tour dates announced – ya gotta try it to believe it

Nov. 12th 2010

If you’ve been wanting to give Rottefella’s innovative NTN telemark binding a try, check out the tour dates below. Rottefella with Telemark Skier Magazine will be conducting a tour this winter to spread the stoke and give folks the opportunity to experience the revolution of skiing tele without a cable.

If you don’t know what NTN  is, it’s a new binding and boot interface that radically improves the power transfer from boot to ski for telemark skiing.

The interface connects to the boot via two separate points, at the front of the boot (much like a traditional alpine skiing binding) as well as under the boot just beneath the arch via a second heel. Because it connects at two points, and in a more secure way, NTN delivers unparalleled performance.

But we hear ya. Ya gotta try to believe. So now’s your chance (or soon anyway).

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.

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.
