relationship of BSL and Size?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My size 28.5 Bumble Bee Full Tilts with 318 BSL are my go-to soft snow boots. I'd like to buy a stiffer four buckle design boot for front-side carving. I'd like it to be the same BSL so I can use it in all my skis. What's the relationship of BSL and Size? I understand shell sizing but there are literally dozens of possible combinations of boots and liners that might work for me. How do I narrow down the list of possible candidates?

318mm is a long 27.5 or a short 28.5 in most brands. I'd guess this means you could easily be in a 27.5.

 

If your boots are within a couple of mm's, it's just a few clicks of a screwdriver. It only takes a moment to do.

 

I have several boots I ski in and on the skis where I'm likely to cross over with boots, I know how many clicks it is. The trick is remembering which boot was on which ski last.

 

 There are some combinations of boots and skis you wouldn't match up anyways.

 

I wouldn't by a boot based on the exact BSL, but rather one that fits your needs the best.

 

Screwdrivers are cheap, the right boot for the right job? Priceless.
