I need a bootfitter in the SLC area that remembers the Salomon SX 92 Equipes

post #1 of 7

Help needed. I am an old geezer who had hoped that his beloved Salomon SX 90 Equipes were going to last out his skiing days. But one broke, I tried some modern 4 clip boots but if I had them clipped up hard enough to get reasonable control they HURT. I have big wide feet and high arches.

 

So I bought a pair of lightly used Salomon SX 92 Equipes with the all the original widgets. It is great, good control and no pain.

 

However I suspect that I need a cant adjustment. I THINK that it is a simple screwdriver job but would prefer that an expert fitter familiar with the Salomon SX 92 Equipes [ and possibly used to dealing with big old fat skiers ] did the job for me.

 

Does anyone know of a boot fitter in the SLC area who might remember how to adjust the Salomon SX 92 Equipes.

Steve Bagley is in SLC (Snowbird) and brent Amesbury is in Park City.  But I would recommend working with them on new boots rather than tryiing to keep an abandoned 30 year old design viable.

You will  prize my 92s out off my cold dead feet.

 

I can do em up in the morning and ski all day. Untill recently I skied on 215 Autiers, trust me I needed good control to handle those old GS planks.

 

Just need the cant adjusted I think. I will go looking for these guys, thanks for the leads.

 

Oh yeah one last thing I can do em up with out bending over, try that with modern boots.

Have you tried boot heaters?

Thanks but it is OK. The dead don't feel the cold.

When I can't bend over I'll probably have to stop skiing as well.  Why do you care that you can buckle them without bending over?  I do my buckles in the morning sitting in a chair and then don't mess with them.  

 

Either way I think you are confusing cuff alignment with canting and although I skied the 92s I don't remember them well but I don't recall the cuff is alignable

Well serendipity smiled on me and a retired Salomon bootfitter commented on my 92s then had a look at them and said that while he thought my current cant was OK he suggested a small change I could make to see if it felt better.

 

Both the sole cant and the cuff cant is adjustable with a screwdriver. I tried the small change and what do you know it feels a little better!
