LEICHTER TOUREN-ALLROUNDER Der Seven Summit ist ein leichter Touren-Allrounder, der eher den klassischen Tourengeher ansprechen wird. Er meistert mühelos wechselnde Bedingungen und hat dank der 3D-Carbon Konstruktion ein ausgezeichnetes Dämpfungsverhalten. Noch dazu überzeugt er mit perfektem Kantengriff im steilen, eisigen Gelände und der nötigen Sicherheit im Eis. OPTIMALE DÄMPFUNG Durch die 3D-Carbon Konstruktion wird das Flex Tip äußerst leicht, belastbar und bietet ein ausgezeichnetes Dämpfungsverhalten. Schläge werden harmonisch geschluckt und die Carboneinlage schafft ein steifes und hoch reaktives Dämpfungsverhalten. Die 3D-Geometrie reduziert Masse und Gewicht. HOHE SCHLAGFESTIGKEIT Durch die Reduktion des eingesetzten Seitenwangenmaterials wird der Ski insgesamt leichter. Die horizontale Verwendung der Seitenwangen mit größerer Tiefe erreichen eine 1,5-fach höhere Schlagfestigkeit als herkömmliche Seitenwangen. PERFEKTER KANTENGRIFF Der zusätzliche, verhältnismäßig kleine Radius von 20 Metern im Bindungsbereich sorgt für einen perfekten Kantengriff im steilen, eisigen Gelände. Dort wo der Ski am steifsten ist, ist der Radius klein. Dies bietet Skibergsteigern die nötige Sicherheit im Eis. EXZELLENTE PRÄZISION Die Pappel Paulownia Kombination sorgt für Präzision und Kantengriff im eisigen, steilen Gelände. Die Festigkeit wird durch das langfaserige Paulownia eingebracht, während der Pappelanteil für die Leichtigkeit des Raumgewichts zuständig ist. Diese spezielle Kernkonstruktion hat sich schon bei vielen Expeditionen bewährt. Highlights:Konstruktion: 3D-CarbonSidewall: MicroRadius: TripleKombination: Pappel PaulowniaFeature: Flex Tip

When boxing was bold, bright, and glamorous and the fights were the hottest sporting events of the year, Joe Frazier was king as the Heavyweight Champion of the World. From 1970 to 1973 he reigned. With a career record of 32-4-1 with twenty-seven knockouts and an Olympic gold medal, Frazier leaves little question that he was one of the greatest fighters of all time. Well-known, loved, and revered as a gentleman and a fierce competitor in the ring, Joe Frazier speaks his mind in Smokin´ Joe - about growing up poor and fighting in the first $2.5million bout; about the early days of his friendship with Muhammad Ali and how their relationship changed; and about the often corrupt world of boxing and what really went on inside and outside the ring. Personable, good-natured, and funny, Frazier´s story is a real delight. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Andrew Quinn.

"You haven´t heard the last of us yet..." These were chilling words on a note left behind by seven armed and dangerous inmates who escaped from the John Connally prison in South Texas on December 13, 2000. Their promise has apparently been fulfilled. The inmates, now known as the Connally Seven, are suspected of having first robbed a Radio Shack in Houston, and then, days later, on Christmas Eve, of having fatally shot and run over a young police officer during an assault on a Dallas sporting goods store. For six frantic weeks, a massive manhunt with a significant reward had only turned up dead ends - until a tip came in from someone who had seen the gang on Fox TVs, America´s Most Wanted. Authorities arrested four of the seven prisoners, including suspected ringleader George Rivas, in Woodland Park, Colorado, and a fifth inmate shot himself during police negotiations. Immediately intensifying the search for the last two heavily armed and dangerous prisoners, police and the FBI closed in on them at a Holiday Inn in Colorado Springs, just two days following the previous arrest. After five hours and a telephone interview with a TV news station, in which they expressed their feeling that the breakout was a statement against Texas´s judicial system, the two inmates surrendered themselves, putting an end to a long and frightening episode. The Texas 7 goes behind the scenes to give you a detailed, fascinating account, of the events leading up to and after their brazen prison escape - and the exciting chase that ultimately led to their capture. 1.

This book examines the urban legacy of the 2014 football World Cup in Brazil across the seven cities that hosted matches. The authors, all experts and natives of South America, analyse the context and impacts of hosting the World Cup for each of the host cities. The chapters use a range of background data and local knowledge and understanding to critically assess what benefits or disadvantages came along with bidding for and hosting World Cup final games, and importantly considers who the beneficiaries where and are. It further provides detailed empirical evidence that highlights a growing trend in sporting mega events: the overestimation of benefits and an underestimation of costs involved in hosting. The book adds to the critical literature that provides a counterweight to governments aspirations to use mega events for the purposes of development and/or globalization, irrespective of the views of their citizens. Eduardo Alberto Cusce Nobre is a Professor in the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of São Paulo, Brazil.
Shortlisted for the best new writer category of the British Sports Book Awards, 2010 On an overcast April day in 2003, David and James Livingston raced against each other in the 149th Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race. Watched by over seven million people, it was the first time for over 100 years that brothers had battled against each other in this gladiatorial contest. Only one could be victorious. In Blood Over Water, David and James tell their stories for the first time, giving an intimate insight into one of our best-loved national sporting occasions, whilst also describing a brotherly relationship tested to breaking point. It is an emotional and searching joint self-portrait that looks at the darker side of sibling rivalry and asks just what you would be willing to sacrifice to achieve your dreams. 1.

A fresh and funny twist on Snow White from the author of Cindy Ella and Geek Charming! Simone never saw herself as the ´´cute girl´´ - she was always the chunky smartmouth. But after a year of avoiding her wicked almost-stepmonster through Zumba class, Simone´s now sporting a whole new retro style. And people keep acting oddly. One thing: her stepmonster seems to be trying to accidentally kill her, or at least fatten her back up. And so when Simone´s brother offers to let her move in with him and his six roommates for the summer, Simone jumps at the chance for some normalcy. Only living with seven very different college boys isn´t exactly going to help her land her very own happily ever after. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Casey Holloway.
