Head Raptor RS 130 Q

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Dies anyone have the forward lean spec on these (full range)? I tried them on today and it was a great fit. I was thinking about trying these with a more upright stance. Not sure of the adjustable range and don't see it anyone on the web.

TIA

if it is a raptor RS130 you tried it is 2 seasons out of date, it was superseded by the RS140 (same boot different color/clips/name) 

 

out the box they are 16 degrees of forward lean 4 degrees of ramp angle  to make it more upright you are going to need a boot fitter with a grinder to remove material from the bottom edge at the back of the cuff... not really a DIY job

 

@Start Haus is probably the man to tell you how much you can get out of it but my best guess is not that much (it is one boot i have not altered the forward lean on )

Yes, its the 130 from two seasons ago. Don't need a 140.

before you start believing the hype about boot flex, the raptor RS 130 (Old boot) and the raptor RS 140 (current) are identical in flex, both leave the box at approx 120 and the addition of the bolts in the spine add some more resistance  Head have gone through a phase of changing the name on boots depending on how they feel... it used to be called the Raptor RS 120 when it came out  ;)

 

i just wanted to make sure you were not paying top whack for an old boot

Its being offered at a nice discount. But, the bottom line (for me) is that the fit is great. A few hot spots to take care of, but nothing major.

 

Since its the same boot as the new 140, maybe when I go in for the full fit maybe I'll see if they will drop a few more $ off the top.
