Spent 8 hours in the new Atomic boots yesterday and boy these are STIFF!
Much stiffer than anything I've ever put on my feet (including my Nordica 981s, a pair of Lange XRis, and a pair of Tecnica TNTs). Out on the slopes, they'd flex a couple of degrees forward OK then BANG
, felt like you'd hit a brick wall and flex no more. Comparatively the Nordicas get progressively stiffer as you flex them forward, and I guess my current style of skiing takes advantage of this. On the steeper slopes with the Atomics, I found myself way more on the tails of my skis than I liked, simply because I couldn't flex them forward enough to be centered on the ski.
Does anybody know if theres a flex adjustment for these boots?
