Does the Atomic Hawx Prime 110s have True Flex like the Ultra's ?
Which mean constant flex in room temperature as well as on the slopes at cold temperatures.
How real is this True Flex story in fact?

BaYThanks a lot for this information. Really disappointed that the 110s is still classic PU.
What are the stiffening factors at for example -5°C ?
It is a more general skiing temperature.

BaYI didn't know Atomic Prime's 110 is similar to other brands 130.
Actually i have a pair of Prime 130 model 2017.
While skiing on the slopes at -5°C the boots are just like a stone; impossible to flex.
I am a very good skier but really it feels stiffer than a pair of brand new Lange RS130 that I have tested before.
I am 170cm big and my weight is 'only' 77kg
My boot size is 24,5 --> On the atomic's the 2 buckles touch on each other when i flex at room temperature.
The paint on the buckles has gone off because of this and there is even some damage on the buckle (because when I flex the upper buckle pushed on the other buckle on my feet...)
This is a really strange fact also; is this because of the boot is just too small at size 24,5 maybe ??
edit: about stiffening factors:
so logically Prime 120s with true flex PU will feel smoother at -20°C compared to Prime 110s with normal PU ?

BaYToday I have tried a pair of Prime 110s at size 24,5 and the buckles still touch on each other when flexing at room temperature.
Also tried a pair of Salomon X Pro 100 same size and same problem with touching buckles...
Due to my small size of 24,5 I can't find that much boots in stores or at bootfitters.
So I think I will have to order online.
I am now looking at following boots:
- Technica Mach1 130, 120, 110
- Lange RX 120
- Atomic Prime 120s True Flex
---> How would you classify theze boots from hard to smooth flex ?
Do other brands/models have smt like true flex or is it only atomic ?
BaYAre the Hawx Prime 120s and 130s exactly the same boots except the double screws on the back of the 130s ?
Or are there other differences ?
Like grilamid % ?

BaYHow would you compare stifness of Atomic Prime 120s vs Lange RS130 or RS130 wide ?
