Forward lean and long tib/fib

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Heard someone say that people with long tib/fib need an increased ramp angle to be able to forward flex more upright boots, like KR2. Any truth to this? I would think that longer tib/fib means increased lever arm on the boots, thus a more upright boot is needed. Thoughts?

This depends on a lot more than just the tib/fib measurement. Range of motion, body shape, length of femur compared to length of tib/fib. Height of skier, etc..

 

If you are talking about yourself and there is a specific question regarding yourself you wish ask, you should include more specific information you may have for yourself.
