How Can I tell if my boots are to stiff for me?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

good afternoon:

 

I am curious, how can I tell if my new ski boots are to stiff for my size and ability.  Flexing an rs-130 in a nice 70+ degree shop is one thing (and i could flex them in that enviornment), but how do i tell if its to stiff when i'm actually skiing in the boot?  Thank you for your time.

If you feel that boot flex is hindering your balance it is too stiff OR a sign there may be some alignment work needed to optimize your fore/aft angles to give you better leverage to flex your boots!

thank you bud.  that will help me evaluate the flex my new boots better.  Should be good on fore/aft angles as we re-analyzed that after getting me into my new boots.  thanks again. dave
