174cm Bishop Chedi w/ 22 Designs Lynx Large (DEMO)
Returning for 2021, the mountain town ski nerds at Bishop redesigned the Chedi using our proprietary TELEM-ARC TECHNOLOGY™. Countless iterations of computer simulations and multiple rounds of on snow prototype testing has resulted in a truly unique, telemark-specific ski.
The 2021 Bishop Chedi continues to give you the ultimate flex and performance for that perfect dropped-knee turn. Instead of the "dead-zone" of alpine skis which require a large area for mounting fixed heel bindings, TELEM-ARC TECHNOLOGY™ gives the ski a sweet, smooth flex under your boot to create a perfect arc that ONLY the telemark turn can provide. Gone are the days of skiing those lame "alpine specific" skis with your top of the line telemark gear. Viva la Freeheel!
This ski is a hard-charging, fun-loving, all-mountain companion. Bishop combines new TELEM-ARC TECHNOLOGY™ with an early rise tip, camber underfoot, and a flat tail that makes the Chedi a blast to ski in all conditions. A perfect balance of float, stability at speed, and playful performance.

***Because of the unique design of this ski, it is NOT recommended to mount this ski with Alpine or AT bindings. In other words, "Free the heel, ski for real". This is a truly "telemark specific" ski.
The new standard in free-pivot telemark.
Introducing the Lynx, an NTN tech-toe touring binding. It’s a completely new design featuring composite flex plates, adjustable preload and binding activity, and a lightweight yet durable design. Built with machined aluminum parts, an easy-to-switch ski/walk mode, and lightweight springs with plenty of travel, it’s the new standard in light touring for telemark bindings.
The tech-toe design allows touring without any lifted binding weight, so skiers can keep up with even their spandex-clad AT brethren. But since it’s a 22 Designs binding, skiers get the durability they expect and the reward of smooth, powerful tele turns on the way down.
One touch puts the binding into free pivot mode. Once at the top, ski mode is also easily pole activated, peel skins and drop in!
