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.

Yes, there’s a stiffy for both sizes.

5. How much easier is it to step into?

Way easier both in and out.

  1. I had issues with the wide brakes on a pair of 98 waist skis hanging up and conflicting with each other on the lead change. I have spoken with others who had this issue. Anything about the new design change this dynamic?

    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.
