So I just spent a season touring the Hawx Ultra XTDs (about 25 days touring, and 10 days at the resort on the boots), and I have to say, the boots are amazing. Great uphill and downhill capability, even skied them at the resort a few times while my other boots were broken. The liner is showing major wear on the tongue at the hinge point as well as by the ankle pockets/Achilles. BUT, I have to say the Ultra XTD liner is absolute trash. No heel cupping, barely any ankle pockets exist even after molding, and the downhill capability is diminished because of this. Is it worth going to an intuition liner for touring? Wrap or tongue?
My resort set up is an Atomic hawx Ultra 130 with an intuition pro wrap liner, and I have been in a pro wrap liner for the past 6 years. Love them and couldn't speak more highly of them. Does anyone have any experiences with the pro wrap tour or pro tongue tour? Or is there another solution out there that I am missing?
TL;DR I want a nicer liner in my touring boots, what are my options without diminishing uphill performance and increasing downhill performance?
