  • Garmont Kenai NTN boot for sale, that never existed.

    Somebody in Italy has listed on Ebay a number of Garmont Kenai 2 buckle touring oriented NTN boots for sale. This is curious because Garmont never listed these in any catalog that I ever saw.

    Gunks,

    Kenai came out the same time the Prophet did. It was also the first of the new generation Garmont boots to get dumped.

    ain't no turn like tele!

      Been skiing on the Kenais for a few years. Good boot and have no idea why it was dropped. Nice light, simple telemark boot and drives a ski well, especially on rockered skis. I quess most are convinced mass is better and so go with a burlier, heavier boots. Between a t-3 and t-2x as far as performance. Weight wise is was a great deal. Odd they had a NTN version.

        What is this currency GBP? Should be priced in Euros. Looks like E-bay automatically charges you VAT, even if you reside outside the Euro zone.

          Craig, I'm fully aware of when the Kenai came out, the Kenai was a duckbill but only. I also had a pair of Prophets which were the NTN version of the Voodoo, but Garmont never listed or admitted to making an "NTN" Version of the Kenai, which is the boot that is for sale in the Ebay listing that I posted here. Back in the Ttip days there was some rumors of an NTN Kenai but no actual sightings, the Kenai was blue, the NTN version listed here is black.

          There was more than a few Ttippers that had expressed interest in an NTN Kenai back then and some wondered why they never made one, well apparently they did, even if they never told anybody about it.

            Sorry Ray, I didn't catch the NTN detail. The new gen were all built with the ability to add a screw-on 2nd heel. I was unaware they had actually built NTN versions too.
