Rottefella’s NTN telemark binding, the New Telemark Norm system, has changed the way we look at telemark skiing. NTN arguably has usurped the traditional boot/binding interface of a cable binding for superior power transfer, better edge hold, release-ability, and step-in efficiency. These are all good things.
However, NTN has also gotten a rap among some skiers for the perception that it’s heavier and has a higher price tag.
