Atomic Redster Boots and Cuff Rotation Feature

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've just procured the Atomic Redster 130 Pro boot. The Redster line has a feature called "cuff rotation" that permits the upper cuff to be rotated 5 degrees in both directions. It's a distinct feature from the cuff alignment feature permitting the cuff to be to matched to the angle of the leg, which, is standard on many boots, including the Redsters.

 

Atomic literature  does a poor job of describing the uses of "cuff rotation" other than claiming " it permits the knee to track over and to the  inside the ski" (my words not Atomics ). I've heard claims that it can reduce the need for boot canting or other bootfitting modifications. I've viewed several video's on youtube touting the boot, but, there is little in-depth discussion about this feature. Atomic's website does not provide any substantive information. C'mon Atomic, if it;s so great, tell us how to use it.

 

 Can anybody explain this feature?

Livingproof,

 

I have read through the Atomic tech manual and although the Redster is prominently placed at the front of the boot section with lots of info about the boot there is no information as to this feature even being on the it.

Thanks for the research, goota love Atomic on this one (not)! But the boot does fit me great! Still unskied thanks to 5 straight days of Pa rain.

 

The below link is to an Atomic Rep reviewing the boot. Right around 4 minutes he describes this feature as permitting great knee tracking, and, that's the source material for my OP remark.
