Remolding Packed Out Intuition Liners?
So I've got a good number of days (around 100) on my intuition liners in my Il Moro boots, and the boots definitely have some life left in there so I'm looking at potentially replacing the liner instead of replacing my boots and so they last a couple more seasons.
I've only molded the existing liners once, and are in good physical shape. Right now they're still riding pretty well but for sure are starting to get packed out. Is there any value in remolding an intuition liner in good condition to try to 'reset' packed out liners, or is a new set of liners is necessary?
Once a liner is packed out, it's packed out there's no such thing as "resetting" them. I usually max out at around 100 days for a pair of liners until I replace them. Sure, there's no harm in continuing to ski them but I'm used to a very snug fit and find that I lose my connection with the ski.
if you’re down to buy new liners anyway i’d definitely say give it a shot. heating will definitely get them to expand somewhat, maybe heat them up and instead of buckling like you do to ski, buckle them as loosely as you can but where you still think you get it to mold around your ankle. intuitions tell you to buckle loose if you need to fill volume and crank down if you need to reduce volume
I'd try a home remold and if it doesn't work out as well as you're hopes you're in the same spot.
Correct though, once the liners are soft AF in your shell, an your foot is on there, LOOSE on the buckles especially where you need to fill volume. Ive done 4 or so intuition molds and I always forget they need to be loose to fill and tight to make space.
