Which boots should i choose?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm french, so i'm sorry for my bad english! If i didn't post in the right place, please move it to the good one .

So let's tell you my "problem"
I'm a racer, and i don't know wich boot to choose: i'm 180cm, 70Kg, so i'm thin and not verry powerfull.
I do most of SL, and some GS.
I'm gonna ride on rossignol RS wc or fischer sl wc next year (this season i had dynastar omeglass and lange comp 120)
I don't know which new shoes i'll have to choose: my legs and foots are really thin, and i wanna some preformant shoes, but i'm worried: i'm not really heavy and powerfull, so i don't know which shoes i can get... Will the lange wc 160 be to hard for me?
What can you advise me?
Thanks a lot, and sorry for my poor english langage.

My opinion, yes a 160 is way too still for you. You can get the same fit from a softer boot.

I agree with Lou.

The boot you mentioned is also available in 2 other flexes.

Lange WC za/za = 130 flex
Lange WC zb/zb = 140 flex
Lange WC zc/zc = 160 flex

That would be "way too stiff for you".

as the others have said look at the softer flexes of the race boots , the Lange is available in softer flexes as are other brands you just got to search them out

where are you based, there are a couple of guys on here based in farance who may be able to help you out
