Atomic Live Fit 70, getting loose in the afternoon

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

5'10/155-160lbs, advancing intermediate skier from east coast. Been on these Atomic Live Fit 70s since 3 year ago when I was a first-timer. Got those mostly for comfort given their 102mm+ last. Now that after several years I found that they start to get a bit loose in the afternoon, I can def feel my heel having more room, which is by no means a good thing. Is there something wrong with my boots? Also with me skiing more aggressively now(going down steeps/getting into bumps/start to hit some park), do I need stiffer boots? Is there recommendation for boots that are a bit stiffer(maybe 90 or 100?) but don't sacrifice too much on comfort?(I'm a casual skier afterall)

Live fit----2 buckles=less control, mushy liner, 

 

You want: more control---------You

 

need more buckles

need a denser liner

 

will find that--- more control is more comfortable

will find that---- more control = more confidence

read the above article and do a "shell fit" on your old boots.
