Head Raptor LTD Ski Boot - Men's

Posted

Pros: Good close fit for my feet

Cons: Watch yer toenails

I went to see my local bootfitter this summer ('09); downtime for him so no rush to fit. He had a look at the shape and flexability of my feet, then we had a discussion about type of skiing; mainly freeride. I had an old pair of X-wave 10's and was thinking about something a tad softer. He chose these, so I went with his call.

He put in some work on the shells; widened the cuff fitting some canting shims under the footbeds and shimming the bindings to sort the correct delta angle, before fitting some Zipfits and away I went. I put some Booster straps on them at home and have now had the chance to try the out.

The fit is terrific, I can really feel the edges through the soles of my feet. In theory they have a softer flex than the old X-waves, but on the snow I rarely noticed.

One tip, don't try to ski the first run of the season with the buckles unclipped in close fitting shells. Your toenails don't like it!
Head Raptor LTD Ski Boot - Men's
Description:

Head s Raptor LTD Ski Boot attacks the entire mountain with race-inspired design, but the 100-110 flex cuts back on the shinbang. Based on Head s Raptor racing last, the LTD softens things up a bit for mixed conditions and all-mountain assaults. The Raptor s HeatFit Pro liner offers a custom fit, and the Double Power strap at the cuff locks you in for a dependable, consistent ride. Head gave this burly boot double canting adjustment so you can dial them to suit your anatomy, be it knock-kneed or bowlegged.
