Hey Guys and gear gurus,
I noticed quite a few of the racers on the world cup circuit are using small metal shims on top of the toe lugs of their boots. The idea seems to be that in a high speed fall the metal is less likely to get deformed than plastic and presumably the boot binding connected is more positive.
The little plates are in addition to the normal sole planning/routing work which has been done.
Anyone know anything about these, I swear I saw somewhere selling them a while back?
Or Marcel's boots
On a separate note, be great if ski boot manufacturer made boots with a thinner more solid toe heel and then you just added the correct top/bottom combo of additional plate top lugs to get the alignment you want. Crazy idea?
