-WZ-So I'm looking into getting new boots next year as I've started touring a lot more this season and full tilts are no longer cutting it. Conveniently enough, 26.5 mtn labs and 26.5 full tilts have an identical bsl. I'm looking at getting a kingpin or ion setup next season with dedicated boots. However, I don't want to sacrifice much downhill performance if possible. I'm mainly asking about using them as an all mtn boot because I know they're compatible with wtr fks, which I run on all of my alpine skis. Say on a day if I went touring slack country in the morning and then in the afternoon wanted to switch to all mtn or park laps, would they still perform/not explode(like pinnacles are known to do) if I landed sketchy off bigger hits? I would still keep my old full tilts for full on park days and urban, but say I forgot to bring both pairs up of boots to the hill one day, would I still be able to get away with only using the mtn labs as a one boot quiver? I guess my main question is durability and performance out of these on the downhill, as coming from full tilts any walk mode on a lightweight boot is going to feel a world better.
username13I ride the quest pro 130 and am leaning towards that same boot for everything.however if you haven't tried them on I suggest doing so first incase you were thinking of buying online..they fit small,I didn't fit into a 26.5 like my 26.5 quest pro...if you buy new,get them from a shops that will custom fit for free...I know people who only ski them and they stand behind them.the flex is more big lines and not park laps but I'm sure they would be fine.if you end up getting some soon I'd like to hear what you think
