Similar in dimensions and weight to the C2, the new C2 Flex frame and forks are made of Swedish made SSAB high-tensile flexible spring steel. The flexible shaft is designed to make the rollerski feel more like a classic snow ski and absorbs road vibration

While I was working at the Olympics in Whistler, I saw very few skiers using the Pilot Classic bindings... most skiers who are still on SNS bindings were using the new SNS Propulse. And for good reason.
