Any need to add a aftermarket liner to Atomic Hawx 120?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

After reading countless posts on how great Intuitions, Conformable, ZipFits, etc all are, my question is this: Is it worth removing my liners from the Hawx (which I bought at the start of last season), and replacing them? I have around 30 days on the Hawx.

 

Being the gear freak that I am, I am very curious to try some out, but am a little cautious as the T3 liners that came with the Hawx seem to be good, and haven't packed out yet..

 

Is it excessive to try a new custom liner already? 

 

Does anyone here have the Atomic Hawx 120, and has already removed the stock liner?

 

Any feedback is much appreciated.

Very tough question to answer. Is the performance/warmth/comfort lacking in the stock liner? Does the boot need more 'beef'? You can't stiffen a soft boot, which the 120 is, but a zip fit liner is pretty stout and might be my choice for that boot... maybe. Is it excessive to replace your liner? If you have the cash, no. If you don't have a custom footbed, and there's money burning a hole in your pocket, I'd do that first though.

(No, I don't own the Hawx, but have had them on my feet and have fit them for others)

I have a custom footbed already...but I'm curious as to your comment that the 120 hawx is a "soft" boot...?

120 is a number with no standard other than a very general range compare to other boots by other manufactures. The Hawx is generally one of the softer boots in the 120 range, especially given the design of the lower shell, but it can be the right boot for the right person and foot... In other words, if the boot flexes properly for your size and ability, then 'soft' isn't really anything to worry about. It's all relative, and you seem to be quite happy, which is good in my book.

If you really want to be a gearhead, put some Booster straps on them.
