Forward Boot Angle in Newer Boots

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have owned two pairs of Langes in my 20+ years of skiing. I have tried on a few pairs of boots in Tecnica Freeride Line (Cochise, etc.) and found the stance to be more upright than I am used to. Am I right in thinking that the forward lean of boots have become more upright? I have read a few references to boots being more upright for a more centered stance on new ski designs. Other than those comments that is all I know. Do racers also have more upright boots? Any information to bring me up to speed would be greatly appreciated. I am shopping for a new pair of boots this weekend.

 

I have a narrow foot and have never needed any special boot work other than a foot bed and heat molded liner. Langes have treated me well but am open for anything. I think a flex of 110-120 is all I need.

 

I know this must have been addressed in previous threads but after many searches I can not find the topic of forward lean.

you can always add a F lean shim to a boot if you find it too upright, but yes,  most boots are more upright then in the past.
