Boot forward flex softening

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey boot guys I'm in need of some new boots and have already tried on a bunch and narrowed the choices down to what fits best.

The Rossignol Experience Sensor 130 is what will be replacing my current boot.

239

I can get these on pro form, but my concern is that they're a little on the firm side of things in forward flex, and I'll want to soften them a bit. I'll be doing the shell mod at home after receiving the boots from Rossi.

What are the best ways to gradually soften the forward flex of this boot?

remove 1 rivet from the back of the boot.  it will be 10% softer

I don't know where you can find photos but in addition to removing rivets boots are softened by deepening the slots in the lower right above the ankle rivet and by lowering the rearmost part of the lower where it acts to support the rear spoiler.  However, I recommend you have this done by a shop rather than at home.
