$349.99

Reviews Summary by AI:

The Legend 181 is based on the original Teleboard design. This was the first teleboard to descend Tuckerman Canyon on Mount Washington. Deck length is 181 cm, dimensions (tip/waist/tail) are 195 mm, 122 mm, 179 mm. The side cut radius is 9.3m and the effective edge is 158cm.

Developed during the winter of 1996 by Martin and Erik Fey, the Teleboard consists of a long, narrow snowboard, or wide ski, with two free-heel telemark bindings arranged one in front of the other at a slight angle to the longitudinal axis. This is similar to a skwal which uses fixed-heel bindings mounted in line with each other.

History
When experimenting with successively narrower alpine snowboards to allow for quicker turns, the Fey brothers ended up with a board that could not fit hard-plate snowboard bindings, and tried telemark bindings instead. After a successful trial down a mogul run at Killington (one of the only remaining open trails in New England at the end of that ski season), they continued to refine the design. The Teleboard earned them two patents between 1997 and 1999. The Fey Bros went on to found Telemarkdown.com and continue to sell Teleboards as well as Telemark and AT ski gear in their two New England shops.
