Any Lange Boot Fans Out There? - Page 3

post #61 of 72
I was begining to think Lange was losing it's presence on the World Cup, but there were sure a lot of them at the Levi Slalom this weekend.

what you want to watch for is how many athletes that are on "package company brand" ie ski/boot/binding choose to ski Lange even though their "sponsor" makes boots....
and there are even some dudes that train in Langes but race in their "company" boots...

I have a pair of Women's Comp 120's. I have a narrower heal and foot. I am very happy and satisfied with them. Been in them since '06. Lange has definitely improved the boot from when I first tried a pair on. My boots aren't nearly as stiff as what I remember in the old Lange's circa '00. After a day of skiing, I do get a little "lange bang", though....but I still love 'em dearly.

Any Lange Boot Fans Out There?

My mind says "YES" but my big toe says "PLEASE GOD, NO MORE!!!!"

After losing both big toenails for 6 seasons in a row, I ditched my Lange X9 Banshees for a pair of Technicas (I kept my toenails, but developed a bunian on my metatarsil - them's the breaks...)

I have a pair of 120 Freerides that I got 2 seasons ago. They are by far my favorite boots. They fit me like a slipper. However, I have an unusual foot shape according to the bootfitter (Hickory & Tweed, Armonk, NY - great btw) very high arch, medium to small heel. Sized down 2 with a little grinding and I am golden.

 

I agree with the others that you need to go an try them on don't take our word. Also I have not experienced any leakage or packout problems.

Totally blown away by my new Rossi (LANGE RL 11 shell, 98mm) B-Squad Composites. 115, Spoiler removed...Stretched and grinded by Bootdoctors, Instaprints footbeds.

 

My skiing has improved beyond my wildest dreams. Take 'em apart and dry'em overnight...every day a dream come true.

I, too, have a pair of the circa 1988 Lange Tii's and I'm still skiing in them..  they were my third pair of lange's (the first two destroyed my shins, I think one pair was those red ones mentioned earlier).  I bought these Tii's back when I was 18 years old and about 145 lbs and skied much better. They were and are heavy, hard to get on and off at in any tempurature, and stiff but I feel connected to my skiis and could not imagine buying any other brand, especially not Nordica and where did Dialbello come from??.

It was not long after purchasing those Tii's that I was lucky to ski once a year and it was not uncommon for me to go two or three seasons and not get on snow.  About three years ago I got back into it by taking my three year old son out to learn.  Well he can ski independently now and I'm looking forward to being able to sneak away and take a few runs down the bumps to see if I still have it.  So I think it's about time I invest in a new pair of boots.  But the equipnment has changed quite a bit since 1988 but I've been able to track down a shop that sells Lange's(at first I thought they all but disappeared).  So here is my question (maybe for the person who used to work for Lange); what was the stiffness/flex of those Tii's, and the width?  If been reading alot about the Blaster and like the idea of a boot with a walking release as I'm still hauling around the little one's on the mountain.  I'm now 160 lb's (5'11").  Can anyone provide any guidance?

I too had the Tii's.  I have since replaced them with WC130's which are a little more stiff.  I would say the Tii's are in the 120 flex range.  I noticed a big improvement in edging with the WC130's and they work better with the new ski designs.  I'm now looking at the RX130 (2012).

Yeah, had AC9s then LF FR120s and now Banshee Pros. If you have a Lange foot, it's all good. But, seems like Lange is, literally, broadening its lines.

I have a pair of X-Zero 6's in the attic - great boots indeed, I just put them on and ski .... however I keep seeing the suffix 'ACD's' being used in blogs etc and Im wondering if my boots are ACD as well ????  What does ACD stand for , can somebody tell me????

Love my women's comp120's. They have served me well over the past 6 yrs. I think even protected me from a break since they fit so snugly.  Really have alot of control in these boots.

ACD = Anatomic Comfort Design
