I've been skiing the Lange RS/RX 130 boot the last few years and I'm starting this season with a new pair after April foot surgery. My normal install of the Hotronics element is to run the wire down through a hole in the toe of the footbed straight back under the footbed and out the slot that Lange now manufactures in their liners. The front half of the footbed accomodates the wire thickness well enough but under the heel it ends up raising me up in the boot by the thickness of the wire. I don't have a bunch of instep height to spare and also battle the length of the cord given my 29 shell.
Has anyone dremeled a "channel' in the bottom of the footbed to acommodate the Hotronics wire ? I have pretty standard footbeds made by my bootfitter using Sidas components. Will the footbed tolerate this or would it ruin it ?
My bootfitter is too busy to even take calls right now, taking this to him is not an option right now.
