Pros: Instant flex adjustment, easy on/off & walk around
Cons: My high instep got killed
Me and my mullet loved those boots! All over Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Oregon, and heli-skiing in Canada.Bought them at the Gart Brothers Sports Castle in Denver. They bit my high instep hard but after much grinding and elaborate modifications got them to fit my abnormal feet. Then it was all fun until someone broke into my Bronco in Las Vegas (enroute to Taos) and stole them.
The single best thing about those boots was the instantly adjustable flex - super cold morning and the boots were stiff - back it off. Warm afternoon and boots were soft but wanted to go high speed - stiffen them up. Popping the release and walking around was really nice too.
These days I spend a lot of time in Atomic CS 130 race boots. Biach to get on warm and impossible to take off when cold. I really am surprised that no one has engineered a ski boot that you can get on and off your foot AND have a great tight fit AND easily adjustable flex.
Skied those boots at a very exciting and adventurous point in my life, and will forever have fond memories.
