The 'stance' numbers in Skiingmag's boot finder utility.

Thank you.

That’s the first time I’ve seen Skiingmag and utility in the same sentence.:

I read the gear guides for the pictures.

As to your question, I haven't read the Skiing Buyers Guide yet... but I suspect that it says something close to the Ski Mag guide in somehwat of a different format as to bring consumers into thinking that marketers don't lean on the magazines as to what to say regarding certain skis/brands/technologies/features.

Good question! I don't see a definition anywhere, and I'm not sure I grok the numbers. Seems like lateral is easy enough to figure, but three numbers for fore/aft is a bit weird.

(Last year's) Atomic RT is 6/3/0 and Tecnica Race Pro is 2/0/0. Anyone have any idea? Could be useful if I could decode it...

Maybe maximum flexed angle, neutral position, and maximum "back seat" flex - meaning it can flex toward the rear if the skier moves to the back seat? Just a stab at it though... but it kind of makes sense... although I don't know why you would want to know rear-ward flex; so it may be that the first two are foreward flex and the last one is lateral flex. That would make sense since both are zero.

The Lange RL1 and Tecnica Diablo Race R are both 6/0/0
The Race Pro is 2/0/0
The Dobermann WC 150 is 1/0/0

I think Heluva is right. The first number is probably the forward flex.

But i don't get it. Why do the Race Pro and Race R have different numbers? The Race R is supposed to have the same performance angles as the retail model.

Doubting the usefulness now- major features unrepresented

Even the 'lateral' seems tricky as the F9000/8000 is 0, and we know about those.

In fact, I don't see a non-zero value in that field.

The Salomon Pro Model SC Spaceframe is listed as 4/8/0, does that fit your model, Greg?

The Salomon Performa 8/W is listed as 0/10/3 and the Dolomite Rage Pro as 0/6/1.

Could one of those numbers be the height difference between toe and heel?
