Free Space in the Shin

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi

 

I am currently having problems with my ski boots ( Nordica Hot Rod 9,5).  The problem I have is that the buckles on the upper part of the boot, when buckled until max, still leave a spare space between my leg and the boot.  This space is small but it is a pain because the boot (and therefore the ski) are considerably less responsive.

 

Can anyone think of a solution?  I have already tried with a booster strap, but it hasn't helped at all.

 

Thanks

If you have a slim leg you could add a spoiler between the shell and liner---this will effect two things, it will take up some space and will move your COM forward over the boot sole which might help you fore/aft balance.

eleminator tongues might help?

 

do up the power strap on the liner, NOT around the shell?

 

 

can you shell fit your boot for us?   I'm going to guess its too big for you as well. and you might just need to start fresh with a smaller size, and lower volume boot.

You could also install a Booster strap and fasten it directly against the tongue.  Does a much better job of keeping things closed up than a power strap.
