This redesigned platform now lets you mount any NIS binding - Xcelerator, Exercise, or Performance models - quickly and easily at home without any tools. Plus you still get the legendary quality of Zandstra's premium Rockwell 60 extra-hard, super-sharp steel for perfect traction on even the hardest, smoothest black ice. And the long curved tip gives you superior handling ability on soft, bumpy and snow-covered ice. Extra-hard steel means you can skate for up to 5 years without ever sharpening your blades.
Bare blades come factory-sharpened, but they do not include XC bindings. Instead you get blades that are pre-drilled and machined for both slide-on and screw-on XC bindings. If you do not want NIS slide-on bindings, you can purchase the Zandstra Hardware Kit and attach any binding you like, NNN, SNS, or even a Rottefella NNN-BC Manual Back Country binding!
If you would like blades with bindings attached, just order the skates and bindings together
