1. How much lighter is it than the original Outlaw?

2 oz lighter per pair.  LG: 3 lb 9 oz; SM: 3 lb 6 oz.

4. Are there still stiffy and standard springs for the X?

Yes, there’s a stiffy for both sizes.

5. How much easier is it to step into?

Way easier both in and out.

    1. 22D offers dedicated ski crampons for the Outlaw. Generic ski crampons that slide into a Dynafiddle slot will conflict with the undercarriage of the Outlaw. Be sure to double-check dimensions and whether or not the binding is centered before mounting. Proper positioning is critical to satisfactory results.
