O yeah I forgot to finish. I don't think the Pros (last years/brown right?) with the 95 flex are going to be much better. They own in the park, but with some fat heavy skis, they aren't going to make charging easy.
O yeah, and one more thing. With my SPKs on my Hellbents, I would go a whole extra buckle clip tighter just to try and make them flex less, but it was still useless.
Do you get shop proform? Cuz The ghosts and new spk pros are such a good price on em.
Plus this years SPK Pro is much stiffer supposedly than last years
I ski the spk pros. They are great in the park and leave me with no shin bang which is mainly what I was looking for. I hate skiing them in big mountain. Since they are so upright I find myself being put in the back seat, I probably wouldn't take them on a heli trip although I'm sure some of Salomon's team does. The rossi boots really are not very technical, they are just making some new strides this season. If you tell me what your width is I can help recommend some boots that may fit better, I've been bootfitting for quite some years. If you thought the foil was too soft then don't buy the spk...its even softer, you can feel that in the store haha. And the soft forward flex isn't a bad thing, most boots are being made much softer in the last 5 years, its the lateral stiffness that determines your control in the end and a stiff boot really helps with keeping you on balance, but the stiff boot sucks if you are dropping anything big. Good luck.
Ya I work for a store that sells everything and an employee in the scuba department can still prodeal ski/board stuff.
And If you liked the fit of the Ghost boot, its pretty damn cheap on form....
Spk's have all gone up in flex this year. Pick your poison:
Kreation's 85 flex, Kaos 90, Pro models 100.
@ 90 flex the Kaos is the perfect boot for jibbers who stray out of the park.
Also keep in mind that Salomon still has the 1080 Foil boot @ 90 flex
And if you want the stiffest for pure freeriding then check out the Ghost boot @ 110 flex.
