Forward lean angles

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is their a way to measure these? Do manufactures publish the info? I like the minimal forward lean on the Heads (ie San Marcos) and would like to find a newer design that mimics it. I can guestimate when I try them on but it'd be nice to know for sure.

Yes, the stats are in the tech manual. Many boots have adjustable forward lean. But you don't want to be too upright. Forward lean is a good thing.

Well . . . only to a degree, and sometimes not at all. Forward lean is NOT always a good thing. Sometimes it's a BAD thing.

Most manufacturers will have forward lean numbers either in a tech manual, or the least on the boots. Certain bootfitters can upright certain models with not too much work.

I prefer quite forward, but it requires greater leg strength and endurance, since the quads are always engaged. By uprighting the boot, one can acheive a straighter leg so that the skeleton can take some of the forces, and not just the muscles.
