Tecnica R9.8 forward lean, ramp angles, last in smaller sizes?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know the forward lean and ramp angles on the 14/15 Tecnica R9.8? I assume it's similar to the Inferno/Mach1 130 LV/R9.3. I've searched all over and contacted Tecnica directly but can't get anything more specific than "more upright and slightly flatter ramp" than previous generations (Diablo, etc). Also, does anyone know if the last is 98mm throughout the range or does it get slimmer in smaller sizes (<= 25) and wider in larger sizes (>= 28)?

@Philpug has to know this

The 98mm last size is based on a 26.5 boot, so the last for a 27.5 is 100 and last for 25.5 is 96

Tecnica does not publish ramp angle or forward lean measurements. 

 

There are so many different ways to measure them and so many variables that one number

from one company is totally different than that of another company. 

 

Ramp and forward lean are basically the same for the Inferno, r9.8, Mach LV.  Mach LV

has a slightly taller cuff so that technically increases the forward lean slightly.

 

They're not as upright as the Lange RS and don't have as much forward lean as a Head

Raptor.  That's about all I can tell you.
