Skiing with an ex instructor friend he commented on how my shins were almost straight with no forward lean as opposed to his stance even at rest which was maybe 5 /10 deg forward. At rest flexing forward with all my weight my lower leg basically stayed at right angles to the skis.
When skiing I find I need to keep constant pressure on the front of my boots or I'll go back seat very quickly.
My boots are Head Vector 100s with custom footbeds and intuition powerwrap liners. I've adjusted the flex by removing the rear cuff screws so its supposedly closer to 90 now but I suspect the intuition liners added some stiffness back. There doesnt appear to be any option for forward lean on this boot.
The first bootfitter I saw when I still had the stock liners and footbeds added some heel wedges to the boots but when I was fitted for the custom footbeds they removed these saying the footbeds and liner should do this job?
FWIW I' m 6'1 178 lbs and 59. Been skiing for about 5 years now and have about 70 days all up comfortable on most groomed blacks and keen to do more off piste.
Is this lack of forward lean a real problem, if so I suspect binding shims would be a better solution than heel wedges. I'll see a bootfitter to discuss bit would welcome any input prior.
