Lange WC fit lace up liners... leave in or out of boot ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Thank you for help from the forum and I've ended up in a new pair of Lange RX120 LV's with WC Fit liners. Since I remove my foot with liner from the boot do I ..

1) leave the boot buckled up BUT the liner remains out till next use? (since I put the liner on first then insert foot and liner in boot)

2) put the liner back in and then buckle the boot up till next use?

 

Minor question I know .. just never had this type of liner before..

depends on your tolerance for repeatedly taking the liner in and out of the boot.

 

most athletes with that set up leave the liner out and string the pull loops through the power strap when transporting them so they do not forget the liner. you have to be careful not to lose your boot boards during transport. screwing in the boot board is standard fare for FIS athletes for height consideration and loss prevention.

 

:)good reasons to leave the liner out:

 

quicker

liner dries better out of boot

less wear and tear on the liner the fewer times that it goes in and out of the shell

 

:devil:good reasons to put the liner back in:

 

you have a lot of spare time on your hands

you are a virgo and cannot stand to have things out of place or order

OCD, anal retentive, etc

you are a major cluster%$k and tend to lose or forget things like your liners, your boot boards, your footbeds, and your wallet/purse

Thanks Jim

Yep I'm a Virgo .. But I had thought that leaving them out would be the way to go..

You mention keeping the boot boards in, I'll look at the plastic , just a sheet metal or wood screw in the heel area?

we use 1 1/4" gold drywall screw, flush to the boot board, try not to drive it through the lower shell.
