two boots - 325mm and 327mm - which to mount Pivots?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Quick question.  I'm going from a 30.5 boot that had a 360mm BSL, down to two pair of 28.5s.  One has a 325mm BSL and the other has a 327mm BSL.

 

I have a 3 ski quiver:

Peacemakers (on pivots)

DPS 112RPs (on pivots)

DPS Lotus 138s (on STHs)

 

So the Pivots don't adjust at all but do have a few mm of elasticity in them.  Am I better off mounting the 325mm boots and then expanding them for the 327s or mounting the 327s and having a bit of slop when I wear the 325s?

 

The boots are Atomic Redsters (325mm) and Atomic Waymaker Carbons (327mm) and I am not sure which I'll wear for which conditions.  I'm planning that I'll wear the Waymakers for powder days and days where I'm hiking to the goods, but the Redsters on dry/frontside days.

 

Thanks,

Jason

Thanks Taxman - that was the exact information that I was looking for.  I'll mount at 327 and then have room to go up to a 29.5 if need be in the future.

 

Cheers,

Jason

For reference, I've found that I get +/- 3.5 from the mounted BSL. Maybe a bit more if you don't mind going outside the knurled markings on the forward pressure adjustment. Using this method I mounted at 313/4 and got a 310 and 317 boot to work.

That's a pretty big swing there - what's the story?

You're buying two boots, one for a narrow foot and the other for a wide foot???????  If you can wear the Redster without boot work your feet are going to wallow around in the Waymaker.
