Telemark boots have a duckbill at the front which holds the boot in the ski binding. Boots designed for use with Rottefella NTN bindings do not have a duckbill, but rather a second tab under the foot on the rear side.
All plastic telemark ski boots have a tongue that flexes when the foot is lifted.
For telemarkers in search of versatile boots for downhill or cross-country, soft plastic shell boots are incredibly lightweight and durable, ensuring maximum comfort and precision.
If you prefer racing or taking on challenging terrain, a stiff boot will deliver the performance you are looking for.
