Nice Job!
Bode advocating for rear entry boots!
And wider DIN soles.
Liked his discussion of the 78mm vs 116mm edging.
”It takes a lot of times of going into the nets to figure it out...”

Would be interesting to hear him talk about mount points.

Glad to see that I was ahead of the curve when I got my Full Tilts last year ;) I will say that after a season of racing in them that I will never go back to struggling into normal front entry race boots again.

Bode beats to the drum of a different drummer for sure. He is not afraid of going against the norm. We did talk about mount points a bit, I will be adding a snippet to my upcoming article "My Morning with Bode"

I can see that if you can keep him between the goal posts, you could come up with something interesting. Could be a big if. He is definitely not a marketer.
$970 for those skis is reasonable. $800-$850 and you might start connecting with a pretty big audience.

Apparently, you need to spend more time going for high edge angles and ending up in the nets. Did you mention there are no nets?

Yes, this is YC. You can see BS in the background of the shots. I skied YC about 5 years ago and the lodge is quite distinctive and is also seen in some of the shots.
Actually it is the Club House at Spanish Peaks.

I really enjoyed listening to this. No mention of the "98” model, however? I am in love with the "on paper" measurements/geometry of these skis(the 98 and 78). I found myself cheering out loud while Bode shared his thoughts about ski performance misconceptions. Thank you for the cool interview!

He’s got 5 pairs of the 98 in his garage.
I wonder if he’s broken a ski through skiing, not crashing.

Now that the skis have been won, I have a Bode question. He is skiing in Full Tilt boots but I wonder does he ski in a different size boot than he would use in a race? Or does he use the same boot every day?
