Scott Ski Boots: Superlights, Superhots - Page 3

post #61 of 64

The Scott part you want is on the right. A large aluminum rivet with a split washer. The one on the left is a large threaded rivet I used to swap out broken Nordica Polaris parts. I found them at Snowcovers in Vancouver a few years ago. They have changed hands and are called Skiis and Biikes  now I think.  I should think any good shop with a good bootfitting department would have a good selection of boot rivets that might work. Otherwise get yourself a decrepit pair of Scotts off ebay for parts.

Gr8 stories. And that's from a guy who wore Hanson's; but that's another thread.

Had a love/hate relationship with a couple of pairs of Scotts.

 

SuperLight's lasted three years before sheading their 'sole'.  Used nylon packing tape and epoxy to finish the spring at A'Basin.  Replaced the 'uppers' twice in three years.  You should have seen the looks I got while phoning (from the office) around looking for 'uppers'.

 

SuperHots lasted four years with one pair of replacement 'uppers'.  Uppers failed during a ski week in Austria, impossible to get parts.  When into a shop and got a pair of Dynafit 3Fs which lasted 10 years.

 

Loved the Scotts.  I'm no lightweight. I was tough on the boots.  If my feet got cold it was because it was COLD!  Easy to make changes to the fit.

 

I'd consider them if they were still in production.

 

 

I'm gonna go look at the 'new' Scotts.  I'm happy with my current boots but there will be new boots in the future.

Well I just added a pair of gen 1 Superlights to my arsenal. Mine are Yellow uppers with red bottoms. The fit is pretty good. Certainly not comfy, but I think I can work with them. They are reasonably stiff too. The clamp is a miserable affair so far. The forward lean adjustment seems pretty hard to setup, I'd imagine it was a real PITA going in and out of the restaurant.

Looking forward to trying them with some 80's mogul skis or my Strato 102's.

Excited that I also added a pair of Raichle Red Hots to my collection and some Raichle leather buckle boots. Such craftsmanship. Just missing some Lange Comps with Yellow liners. Never thought I'd be a boot collector!
