Rossi Radical calf room

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
 Hello, Boot Guys.

My daughter is looking at a pair of these

she's 15  has been racing for six years

She has large calves.

We found the long buckle that helped

Question, would you consider shaving down the ridges on the back of the liner for a little more room??

need more info---which boot---calf circumference, etc.

yes, i would shave down the forward lean ridges on the liner of the rossi radical inner boot.

depending on her height and length of her lower leg, you could also lower the height of the cuff. either just the rear spoiler height, or the medial and lateral height as well. mm's not, inches.

do you have a good race shop close to where you live?

 Hey, Jim.
This is Mark in Fairbanks, Alaska.  Thanks for helping out with my daughter's buckle last year.  She sent a post card from Austria but none her's made it State side. 

I just found this forum last night, but I had talk to Mike at the shop yesterday and he concurred with the idea of shaving the ridges off.  As you know my resources are limited here.  Maybe when we travel to Anchorage.  I saw some other references to the spoiler and will have to check into that.  I don't have the boot in front of but I'll assume it will be easy to identify.  She is very long in the legs; overall height 5'11"; top of knee from ground 23.5"; ground to back of knee 17.5".

Thanks for your help, Jim.  I look forward to visiting your shop someday.

hey mark,

now that i know it's for your daughter, ignore the advice about lowering the spoiler or cuff height.

i was picturing a romanian weightlifters calf on a girl that was 5' 1". your daughter has plenty of height for that cuff.

so back to the original answer, shave, cut or grind the forward lean fins off the liner, and that should be enough.

see ya,

jim
