Difference in flex between SPK 85 and Krypton Rampage?
I dont know too much about the flex of boots, and I thought I had it figured out before I discovered that there is a "flex index."
What are the flex/flex index of these two boots?
The SPK 85 I'm looking at is all black with a little green and yellow on it.
The Krypton Rampage is the tan/black with the brown fur in it.
Not asking "which boot should I get?", just want to know a little more about the flex of the two. Thanks all
There is no universal flex index so you can not really compare boots from different brands. The only way to really know how they flex is to try them with a fitter. But remember The boots will feel 10-15%softer in a shop compared to when they are cold skiing. Adding a footbed will also make the boots feel stiffer so don't worry if the boots feel a little soft when you initially try them as they will stiffen after fitting.
But honestly don't worry about things like this, this is exactly what us bootfitters do. We work out what you need and find a book which will work the best for you. A good fitter will pretty much select the boot for you so you won't have to worry about researching boots. If anything research boot fitters.
Ok awesome I'll do that.
In the meantime...in your experience, have you fitted both these boots? Does one tend to be stiffer? Let me know what you have found in your experience with these boots.
Thanks a ton.
tom is right but the spk is 85 and the kr is 110 i think. its not apples to apples but i think it is fair to say the spk will be softer.
