Contour Startup Junior Touring Adapter
Contour Startup Touring Adapter
With the proliferation of backcountry and alpine touring skiing over the past decade, it's nice to see that the kids aren't left behind. While the chairlift is no doubt an easier and faster way to get to the top of the mountain, there's a number of factors that make that not possible for each and every kid and family. Not to mention, the ability for families to spend more time together outside in the winter wilderness is nothing to scoff at, either. The Contour Startup Touring Adapter is an ingenious product that allows your kid to click into his or her skis using their boots in a touring application. When skins are added (certainly necessary), their alpine setup doubles as their touring setup and they're good to go on any and all backcountry adventures. Thanks to Contour's use of lighter weight plastic and an easy to use setup, the Touring Adapter allows you to simply click the adapter into your bindings and your boot to the adapter. At that point, you're free-heel touring and heading up to the top of the mountain of your choice to rip down in likely what is going to be a run of epic proportions. Light, quick, and easy to use, the Contour Startup Touring Adapter is your key to untracked powder with your kids, with likely only a modicum of complaining. It's still hard going uphill, after all, but these adapters at least make it way simpler than ever before. If it comes down to buying a whole new touring setup for your kid or getting an easy adapter, we think this is an excellent choice.
