Using foam for shin bang

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Would value opinions about curing shin pressure issues with a thin elastomer or pressure sensitive foam behind tongue. Dalbello Crosses, stiff tongue. Many thanks.

before adding anything to the boot have you got the top clips and the powerstrap done up real snug ?  maybe try powerstrap inside the shell so it only is on the liner..... if it is a general area of pain then the type of foam you suggest should work fine, if it is a line of pressure down the shin bone then i would try epitact or similar gel shell applied to the leg...some people just have shin bones that you could slice tomatoes on

you could also try a custom insole or an off the shelf insole.... something to help align the foot and leg better in the boot.

Thanks for ideas. I's a fairly diffuse area of discomfort, feels more about pressuring the tongue than having a loose fit at the top, and I have a good custom insole. Still dialing in the boot, but seems like decent alignment.

The Eliminator Tongue from Masterfit could help.

I ski in several pairs/brands of boots, all are 120/130 flex---some have a progressive deceleration of the tibia and are comfortable---others feel soft flexing until the tibia hits a wall (ouch) no efforts to alleviate this have helped in those boots..  What is your experience in your boot---stand on one foot and flex the boot, how does it flex.  Get back to me, I would be interested in your results.
