I just spent the day on my new R-Power 7.2 fs ... I love them !!! At the same time, I have a little problem ... I noticed that to ski them to their full potential, I have to ski them predominantly from the inside of my heel, just before the start of the Ark my foot ... And I wonder if this is normal?
Let me explain. What I mean is not that I put 100% of my weight on my heels, and it is not as I ski back seated (I feel pressure on my shins) but if instead of pushing (or counter) from the middle of my foot, or even the sole, I push from the heel then: there is no more shattering and I can really ( I mean really!) feel the power of the skis under my feet and how they are firmly grounded on the snow ( or ice).
So, should I:
- change nothing and try to get used to ski this way?
- move back my bindings until I feel like I'm at the right place?
- try to find if there is something wrong with my skiing?
I'm thinking it could be a mix of the 2 first... Maybe I heard so much to get foward and to put weight on the tips that I got used to ski with too much emphasis on the front of the feet and maybe these skis don't let me go with it like my all mountain skis does... And I think that I should also move back my bindings so I could feel the sweet spot a little bit more toward the center of the feet...
What do you think?
