Algnment Q - I would like to hear a professional bootfitters thaughts on my stance

post #1 of 4

Here a couple of photos of me in my new Dalbello Scorpion 130. I had the shell punched in two spots (see the other therad) and I replaced the original linear with a last year Nordica Doberman Pro EDT 130 linear. Thats the setup in the picktures. Im now wondering if you can give me some general comments on the type of bone structure I have. And if the setup looks ok or not. And what should I change.

 

Different stance width:

Standing on one leg respectively and in the center photo Im bending forward in my boots:

Any input much appreciated.

Generally speaking from the photos you included your stance looks fine, however, you are only considering one side of the equation.  You need to turn 90 degrees and take more photos (profile view). Also, I check a person on a flat surface and then clicked into their bindings and skis to make sure the ski/binding/boot ramp angle collectively is correct (profile view).

 

Better yet, if you feel you are having issues you might want to visit a boot fitting professional in person.

 

Good luck

A million thanks for your feedback. I know that I should visit a boot fitter and I have but I can give advice on peoples skiing by looking at sometimes only one photo. I think bootfitters should be able o see importatnt stuff out of these photos. I did not post any side view photos since I did not know if they were of importance. But we took some at the same time.

got to agree, looks ok on the static two footed set up in the forward views, but then the profile views are a bit strange, either hanging on the shins of the boot or straight legged, something is not quite right fore aft.... as Don said you really need to see this on an unstable surface as well, all well and good standing on a level floor but what happens on a rockers sole (simulated ski on softer snow) does everything remain the same or does it start to collapse like a house of cards, we test in several different ways before we touch a boot sole and a static on the ground test is only one way
