Molding full tilts
i tried on a pair of 26.5 full tilt konflicts at a shop, but, i did not have my custom footbeds with me. since they fit at the shop, i ordered a pair online (on sale), and went to a local shop to have them heated and fitted WITH my foot bed. The boot tech put the boots on the heat stack and did the fitting, when he took the liners off the heat stacks, they were warm and a little soft, but, not REALLY soft like when i had a pair of il moros with intuition liners fitted and have been skiing on for 4 years. The boot tech said that the liner in the full tilt boot is different and it does not get as soft & pliable as the liner on the dalbellos. is there any truth to this because the full tilts are really not comfortable like the dalbellos, and i am wondering if i just need to have them refitted at a hotter temperature.
With any intuition style liner, you don't need to heat up the liner so it becomes floppy and extra soft- more often than not, this causes problems like creases and folds. With the FT liners, you just need to heat them up so they become soft and moldable (15 minutes on a heat stack should do the trick). Now, Konflict liners are super firm and really dense. They will not feel like cushy slippers because they are designed to be a responsive freeride boot. But they will break in and become awesome after about 10 days of skiing.
anyone else have a response about their full tilt molding experience?
i took mine to shop with an intuition stack.
there was a serious improvement. after two days of skiing they were perfect.
