Roxy Gear - Help?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I am thinking about purchasing Roxy gear for my skiing adventures. If I do go with Roxy, I will be buying Roxy boots, skis, bindings, and poles. I have read the reviews on Roxy equipment and it seems to be very nice stuff. I also love the look! The graphics on their equipment are very attractive.

I found a nice pair of Roxy boots that were made a couple of years ago. I have been considering purchasing them! My only issue.. is that they are from 2006-07 and I don't know if they will be fine with skis from 2009-10. Does anyone know if they will still be compatible?

I am a Beginner - Intermediate Skier. I will be skiing 5-10 times this season.. but much more next season!

If you have any good stories or horror stories about Roxy, please share them! Any recommendations for Roxy equipment will be so helpful!

 

Edit: The skis I am looking at are here:

The bindings I am look at are here:

I'm almost positive that I am not done growing, so I do not want to spend a fortune on skis and boots if I am going to outgrow them soon. When I finish growing, then I will put money-money into equipment. This is my first time buying.. so I just need a few pointers.

Just make sure to get some Roxy Music on your iPod and you will be good to go.

 

Honestly, I'm not sure if this is a serious question - if it is I assume that you are are pretty young. Just get boots that fit well - they will be compatible with any regular ski binding from he past and probably next 25 years.

First let me ask you why you are only considering Roxy.

Don't get me wrong, Roxy makes perfectly good stuff, but so do a lot of other manufacturers.

But more, let me hit on a few other points you bring up in your OP

2006 boots will be fine with newer ski bindings. 

Since you're relatively new to skiing, you may consider getting a good fitted pair of boots (Roxy or other wise) and try demoing some skis.

 

I hope this helps you in your quest.

Did you get to try the 2006 boots and work with someone that fit you properly? If so, great, it is a fine place to start. If not, work with someone who does proper fitting and find a boot that fits YOUR foot. Once you the boot settled (boots are the most important piece of gear and not a fashion accessory) and IF it comes down to "matching", fid a ski that matches the boot. FWIW, Roxy equipment is basically dollied up Lange/Rossignol gear.

My daughters dig Roxy, it is a great girls brand, so go for it. The most important thing though is to get boots that fit, and that process should be color blind. Trust me. Find a boot fitter who knows what to do.
