I am skiing in Lange Freerides and I suspect they're too stiff. Flex is 120. I have removed one of the two rear screws, but I don't think that helps too much. I am looking for advice about the right level of stiffness and I am also curious about the positive effects I might see by matching the right flex to my ability.
I am 52, 6' 0" and 165 pounds. I like to ski fast and I like to go all over the mountain, so I'm looking for a versatile, all mountain boot that will enable me to ski on groomers, on moguls and in powder.
I know I could pull the other rear screw, and perhaps I should try that. My thought is that I'm not going to get younger or likely weigh more, and it's a possibility that the Lange's are just too stiff no matter what?
I have chicken-leg calves and the hard thing about finding a good ski boot is matching upper boot volume to my legs (most boots are designed for larger legs).
Flex advice and boot suggestions welcome!
