nmwninjartYes The Salomon xpro or spro whatever it is (I can't remember because I'm at work) are pretty upright.
I just realized this after two seasons with these boots. I have the womens ones. I had been fighting them this whole time and had no idea there were options with more forward lean and the ability to adjust it. I had been trying to get into more aggressive stance and didn't realize how upright they are. I always felt wierd jumping and this is probably why
I just ordered some new boots from a different brand with more forward lean.
MatteroniWhat kind of options are you talking?
nmwninjartMy specific option that I decided on was Atomic Hawx Magna womens. (102 last for wide feet) Most if not all the Atomics have an adjustable forward lean . Factory set at 15° but can be adjusted to 13 or 17. Source : Blister podcast that I binge listened to while I was on a road trip last week.
When I had my Salomon boots worked on by the bootfitter he said they were too narrow for my foot and did his best to make them work.
onenerdykid^^^This. Most Redster and Hawx models that have "Power Shift" (the metal thing in the back of the cuff) allow for changing your forward lean from upright 13° to a more standard 15° to more forward 17°.
Props for binging the Blister podcasts!
