New Liners/footbeds

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My old Tahoe ski bud has been trying to talk me into  seeing Buck at Squaw and getting some new fangled liner and footbeds that he swears are really awesome.  Having a hard time justifying flying or driving from Idaho to check this out.  Can anyone give me a rundown on what this new system is and could a good fitter up here do it.  I was going to talk to a good bootfitter at Outdoor Gear in Spokane but would like to know what I am looking for first.  I have noticed that it seems I am fighting the backseat more with rockered skis and it is probably the motor but ?   Any help/insight would be helpful.  I am in Lange's think this is 4th season and have always liked the fit.  My cork footbeds are about 12 yrs old.

are your skis mounted too far forward?

 

if you like the fit of your boot, dont change it.

Maybe I really don't know.  Why would this affect what I described, sorry if this is a dumb question.

YES.

 

Probably the motor (me) but I get back on my 188 S7's but have been correcting this pretty well by " not looking down but up and out and having active/swinging poles".  However I demo'd all afternoon yesterday a pair of K2 Coomba's 181 and literally could not get myself out of the backseat.  After many powder, chop, crud runs finally just told myself to be really aggressive on them in the trees and I did ok b ut boy I wore myself out fast and not a lot of fun. Thanks for helping out - appreciated.

Generally in my experience sitting back is related to excessive ramp or bindings mounted to far back.  Now the problem is with rockered skis I don't really know how to tell you to measure anymore.  Perhaps you can demo a pair with a demo and movable bindings or perhaps you are using a system setup with some adjustability?
