Plug boots in two widths, in about 5 different flexes.
Tecnica can claim whatever they want, but they have had almost no success in WC racing. Nordica as an example, probably has more racers on the WC than any other brand but they again do not have the results.
I hope this will turn into a good discussion on Lange boots and the people who are interested in buying these boots will learn more about them.
You mentioned a few things which, in your opinion, make the new boots better for today's skis and today's technique. I have a few questions.
What can you tell us about the stance of the boots?
Tecnica claimed their boots have a flatter ramp and more forward lean
I tried the Lange WC 150 and i know how it fits. Since you mentioned the new fit of the other boots, i would like to ask you this: how does the WC 130 (WC fit) fit compared to the WC 150? Does it have the same lower and the same cuff?
How do the WC 130 (HP fit) and WC 120 (HP fit) fit compared to the WC 150? I am interested in the fit in the ankle/heel and instep. They should have a more relaxed fit in these areas but i want to be sure. Do the WC 130 and 120 have a different cuff than the WC 150?
If i remember correctly, the arched sole is designed to provide rebound and allow the boot sole to flex. Sole crest could work but how does it affect binding retention if in fact it does work?
