Forward Lean angle and boot board ramp angle

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I’ve spent the last few days comparing my current boot which is a Salomon X3-120 28.5 ,custom orthotic and zip fit liner.  This boot fits me well and puts me in a great balanced position,but I’m looking for a little more performance fit offered by the Tecnica Inferno of the same shell size.  It’s definitely a closer fit and lower volume but the forward lean and boot board angle has me searching for my fore/aft balance all day and my skiing suffers accordingly.  It feels like I’m way too far forward and too much on the ball of my foot and no even weight distribution along my foot.

I’ve searched both companies websites without being able to find much in the way of true technical information.  I’m interested in the forward lean angle and boot board ramp angles by comparison if anyone knows them.  Thanks!

wicked1,

 

To discover the difference in forward lean---place the boot heels of both brands of boots against a vertical surface and measure to the back of the liner at the top of the shell---the boot with the least distance has the most upright stance.  There is no easy way to measure an angle on any boot for forward lean.
