Hello friends! I’m posting on behalf of Troy. who is a dirty blue name and doesn’t go here. He works for 4FRNT Skis and Roxa Boots and is working on trying to improve the ladies’ big mountain boot game.
Troy’s voice below:
I’ve been told that outside of race boots, there aren’t many options for aggressive boots to charge in. The boot we have right now is the Eden (http://www.roxa.com/eden_105.php?lang=2) but there’s a lot of room for improvement (as I have been told).
After talking with a couple women on the SFS and FWQ, here’s what I have:
-have a narrower last (closer to 93, the race average, than 100mm)
-a stiffer flex. 115 is what I’ve been ballparked. The FWQ and SFS people tell me that most are riding race boots with a 120 flex, and 115 would be closer to idea.
-tech toe and heel
-ditch the girly colors
-keep the intuition liner, walk mode
What are your thoughts? Anything else you’d like to see, or something you disagree with?
