    Binding placement effects on skiing with Lou Rosenfeld

    Binding placement effects on skiing with Lou Rosenfeld

    Sbould you mPunt your bindings on the recommended factory line? What happens if you change the placement? Is there an ideal location for our bindings to be mounted every time?

    These questions and more are covered in the lates global skiing podcast episode. I interview Lou Rosenfeld a ski ship owner from Calgary but also a mechanical engineer who has been involved in research over the years on the effects on binding mount location on ski performance. I think every skier out there should be privy to this knowledge. I hope you enjoy the episode. I know it has helped me look into my ski setup further to test if there is a better place I can be skiing my skis from.

    Tomas Marnics Interview

    Tomas Marnics Interview

    Tomas Marnics has cut a niche for himself in the ski industry running his own ski camps based on his own findings as well as what he sees the best skiers in the world doing. He comes from the viewpoint of testing and comparing different ways to move on skis always with the goal of more power and alignment with the forces.

    Please check him out on instagram to see the great images and videos of his skiing. If you want to hear a different perspective on counter rotation Tomas gives great explanations based on looking at other sports and even animals as to why counter rotation is more of a result later in the turn and not something skiers should try and force into their skiing.

    I contacted Tomas because I see many similarities in the way he thinks about skiing and types of concepts he teaches to get his students skiing more fluidly and with greater power. We had a great discussion i hope you enjoy this long overdue episode.
