hands down best boots i have ever worn, now i know why seth morrison was so pumped to get ahold of these.
i think the boots preform superb and look great, and if i have learned anything in the world of ski equipment, function is far far more important than looks, so even if you dont like how they look try them out.
any questions pm me
ill just start out by saying that i love these boots.
-noticeably lighter than any boot on the market
-flex is uniform and smooth
-boots are comfortable enough to wear 12 hours or hike the park all day
-they look sick
-light, light, light
-once you get used to it the buckle system is super convienent and the boots are super easy to get on and off due to the wrap liners and how the tounge falls completly out of the way.
-fully customizable, all of the buckles can be switched to whatever color you want.
im sure im forgetting something...
the looks seem to be hit or miss, newschoolers think they look sick and old racer dudes just think theyre 20 year old rentals. but who cares?
i think the colors look sick and they will match the yellow pants/blue and white jacket orage combo that ill be buying as soon as i get the $$$
the boots feel amazing as stated above, i have narrow feet and the boots are perfect so i dont know how they'd fit a wider foot. the intuition moldable foot wrap makes my rampages feel like wearing plastic boxes on my feet.
deff get them heat molded, theres really no comparison to the before and after.
for 350 you bet they were a steal! i did get a discount though and most shops carry them for about 400.
when you purchase the boot make sure youre toe touches the front of the liner and you have a couple clicks left on all of the buckles. they do pack out a bit so dont buy them a size big!
the boots fit snugly on the entie leg and foot untill my toes which can actually wiggle around a bit, which i find is amazing. the boots do not rub, slide, or do anything of that nature.
i wear a size 12 shoe and the size 12 (30) fit me perfectly and i would have chosen the same size again for sure.
do not order these boots online unless you have tried them on in person! you should just never do that with any pair of boots though.
as the lowest flex index boot in the full tilt line, suprisingly the booter was about as stiff as the salomon konflict. in my opinion, the flex is perfect for the park and resort. this is by no means a charging boot but that isnt what it was designed for, so dont look at this for a race boot or something to go with your prophet 130's.
the boot has one of the smoothest flexes that i have ever felt problably due to the design of the plastic tounge enclosure.
one of the things that makes this boot unique is that the flex is dependant on the plastic tounge (it is the piece that the cables cross over not part of the liner btw) and can be swapped out for a stiffer tounge to change the flex of the boot entirely.
i have only skied these a few times but i would say that these will be lasting for quite some time considering that everything on the boots is easily replaceable.
