Goode Nano One XT review starts now

HortonHorton Posts: 30,561 Administrator
edited April 2014 in Reviews
I started the review of the Goode Nano One XT this week. There is not a lot of say because I only have 2 sets on it so far. Tonight I tried out some settings Nick Parsons gave me. I ran two 32s and five 35s. As I get more passes the ski feels better and better. The Nano One and the XT almost have a different cadence than other skis.

I have about 25 rides to figure it out.

    What do you mean by a different cadence?

    Does Goode still insist that you drill barbaric holes in your $2000 ski or can you get these newer models with inserts for HO bindings?

    @kstateskier‌ they all come with inserts for mounted boots. If you have an older GOODE without the inserts, the factory will put inserts in for you.

    @Horton‌ echoing earlier question. What size XT? Can you post your fin setting you got from Nick?

    I got a Goode from the factory with inserts last year and it has worked fine. It is a 9960. I have also dual locked a Strada onto a Goode and didn't have any issues with that.

    I am on the 65.25.... besides that this thread is just announcing that the test is starting. I don't know if the settings are good or bad. I only have ONE set.

    I am very interested in this thread as I am strongly considering purchasing the XT. Look forward to your test results.

    @jmvana1‌ if you have read my past reviews you know I take my time. I take a lot of sets before I say too much. My final review will not be published for over a month.

    No rush, I will also test before making a purchase. Since my top speed dropped to 32 I'm not sure your results will be applicable for me.

    So I am 4 rides in to the review and the more I ride this ski the more I like it.

    One of the hard parts of reviewing skis is keeping things in perspective. EXAMPLE: I ran 5 back to back 35s my second set yesterday. Those 35s were not as smooth as I wished they could be but Holy Hell it is April. and I ran 5 back to back 35s and was not completely destroyed by it? Furthermore I do not know if I could have skied them any smoother on any other ski.

    I am focusing on my gate at 35 at the moment. I feel like I have to adjust my skiing to get the most out of this ski and if I can work out the gate at 35 I expect the same to work at 38.

    I am going to run a lot of 38s on this ski and take a poke at my PB.

    Horton Chad uses a Ventral and Nick skis 58 K!!!! Try 2.495 6.775 .707 9.5 wing and boots 28.75 and set the rear boot at 17.25. The rear boot placement is important.
  • davidmillerdavidmiller Posts: 27 Baller
    my feet are size 9 but it doesn't matter if your feet are bigger I have 200 lb guys with med and large boots that we cut the front toe off the rear boot and put the rear boot as close as possible to get the rear boot about 17 to 17.25 from the tail.

    No Chad measures flat on the blade

    You guys realize that if you have to explain what version of caliper you are using this is ridiculous. I have slot calipers but if you have to spec a version just supply tips.

    @Horton.....Amen!!
  • MrJonesMrJones Posts: 1,809 Mega Baller
    Yep. Dave (or anyone else) I would appreciate a tips number for that 6.775 length. I will give the 28.75" boot placement a try as well. I had not heard of anyone back that far on it.
  • GOODESkierGOODESkier Posts: 1,107 Crazy Baller
    @Horton @davidmiller‌ @OB Dave cut my rear boot toe off. Has worked WONDERS! Even in 43 degree water today, ski is dialed in!

  • musclefixermusclefixer Posts: 58 Baller
    @Goodeskier, @davemiller, can you give me any photos of your rear boot? I have large powershells and cant get them any closer then 16.75. @davemillers fin settings look pretty stock aside from the rear boot. So this maybe my answer to a better off side turn....thanks in advance
  • Alberto SoaresAlberto Soares Posts: 338 Solid Baller
    @musclefixer‌ - Dave Miller also uses double powershells (medium I think), he cut about 0.5" of the front part of the rear binding so it stays closer to the front
  • GOODESkierGOODESkier Posts: 1,107 Crazy Baller
    @musclefixer‌ just like @AlbertoSoares said. Just take a small hack saw and cut the tip of the tow of the shell off. Doesn't take much. Doesn't effect anything other than being able to get your center of mass and foot placement closer and more over the sweet spot. I think we cut mine back to the first small cavity. It isn't much.

  • musclefixermusclefixer Posts: 58 Baller
    @Goodeskier, @AlbertoSoares, I understand thank you I will try it but Isnt the ability to slide the boot further forward dictated by the slot under the binding, . Im as far forward as I can go, not because the rear toe is touching the heel of the front, but because it cant move any further. Is that still ok?
  • HortonHorton Posts: 30,561 Administrator
    Soooo back to the subject of the review.... Yea the ski and I are getting to be very good friends.
