Thanks...it's hard to find any published information regarding Atomic specs. The atomic web site is worthless in supplying any information about the technical specs of their models.
I was in a shop and nobody knew either. Out of curiosity, I tried the boots on and they did seem to have a strange fit and feel to them and it wasn't the forefoot flex. The Atomic's I have tried in the past have the foot sit really low in the liner and perhaps that was it.
