Intuition liners - what exactly does low,med,high volume indicate?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Some of the Intuition liners (Luxury model) are available in low, medium & high volume versions. I gather that "low volume" means that the liner takes up less volume in the shell, not necessarily that it is a version intended to be used with low volume feet.

 

But does anyone know exactly where the volume differs.. what is the difference say between a size 29 low volume & size 29 med volume liner? Is it a matter of how thick the foam is e.g. 9mm thick for low volume & 12mm thick for medium volume or something like that? I'm trying to determine how much difference there is between the volume levels, preferably an actual number like millimeters or perhaps as a percentage difference. I couldn't find any information about this on the Intuition website or with Google.

I'm not sure, but they are generally very responsive to customer inquiries.  I bet they will help you out if you call or e-mail them.

Intuition does have great customer service.. but they're a small company (at least in terms of how many employees they have), so they're always busy & it usually takes a few days or a week for them to get back to you. That's fine, but I'm asking here because I'll get the answer 3 - 7 days faster if someone on Epic has already looked into this.

I'm not sure either but I bet you'll get and answer from Rob@Intuition within 48 hours.

I asked the same question and this is how they replied-

 

"It's hard to say exactly, because the tongue liners are made from many pieces, of different thicknesses and densities.

Overall, approx::::

High:13-15mm body, 12mm insole
Med:11-13mm body, 10mm insole
Low: 10mm body, 8mm insole.

Hope this helps!

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

All the best,
Rob & Crystal"

I grabbed a pair on the recent deal that were the low volume models. I thought they would be right because my existing liners are very thin in the forefoot and my boots are pretty tight in that area. The fit in the front was great but be warned, the Intuitions have a very low volume tongue compared to my factory Langes. I have had to move the upper two buckles over and I'm still not completely satisfied with the heel hold down compared to stock. Forefoot is great and they are a lot warmer (main reason for purchaase).

Thank you very much turnfarmer, just the info that I was looking for. I love the Intuition liners, but because they have a busy office it was quicker to pose the question here.

My 5 year old Scarpa Laser liners had gotten so packed out that I had two footbeds in them, the superfeet on top of the Scarpa original equipment. I selected the high volume Luxury liner to replace the liners and am very happy with the result. The laser has a roomy forefoot and all that volume is taken care of and my foot is comfortble and tight, very tight. I think the Luxury is perfect for a touring boot. If I wanted additional alpine performance I would have tried the power wrap liner
