I believe my boot/binding combination offers both too much ramp angle and too much fwd lean. I have elevated the binding toepiece to correct the ramp angle, but am considering how to effectively reduce the fwd lean inherent in my boots (Falcon CS Pro boots, Look PX12 bindings).
Here's what I'm wondering:
Can I raise the heel of my footbed (increase ramp angle inside boot), and offset that by raising binding toe (bringing overall ramp angle back to where it is now)? My thinking is that by increasing the internal boot ramp angle, I'm effectively reducing the fwd lean of the boot cuff. Of course, I will be limited by how much room I have over my instep, and at some point, the heel would begin being pushed out of the pocket. Also, how much can I safely elevate the binding toepiece (I have a longish bsl of 336mm, so that should allow more lift than short bsl's)?
My 3 boys and I all have similar feet/builds, and I'm thinking we'd all benefit from these changes (they're on the same bindings, but using Lange Comp 120LF's which also have excessive fwd lean).
I'd really like to try Nordica Dobermann WC's for all of us, but college tuition comes first. Hence, I'm trying to make the best of what we have to work with.
Thanks for any thoughts/ideas.
