Shredit0If you afterbang often, the ski boot elf might bring you new ski socks
casual.weekdayi have it where my phone rubs on my leg, no big deal, make it a badge like a goggle tan.
freestyler540I notice this every season. After about 2 weeks of riding every day, there is a huge patch of missing hair on my shins. There is no redness, rubbing or pain involved, just a clean shaven lower leg. I can post pics on request.
I hope I am not the only one...
ski-hippieI think all your boots are too loose, I've always had mad tight boots cause I can feel the ski better and I have never had this problem
freestyler540Actually, its not even a problem. Being hungry in the backcountry without food is a problem. The clean shaven shin is caused by the hair getting caught in the socks by the expansion and contraction of the material and the rubbing under pressure when riding aggressively forward in your boot. Its more of a sign you are going everything right.
The biggest flaw of full tilts is the slack feeling and the bad pressure points on the ankle tendons that keeps me from being too tight around the shin. They are perfect in the park, but you have to suffer if you are doing anything else. At least the heel and feet are very well secured.
AnGaperBro. I just sat here laughing for 5 mins. I actually shave half my calves to just avoid dealing with the pulled out hair and added shin bang, I just convinced a few of my friends to do it as well.
