To Flex Or Not To Flex ????

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys

 

Please can somebody advise...

 

I am am an intermediate skier (well the bottom of the range anyway) and enjoy a gentle ski rather than the full out speed merchant.

 

I have quite wide feet and am therefore drawn to the Atomic Live Fit range and am trying to work out how much flex I need as the flex range is 60, 70, 80, 90 and 120.

 

I am quite a large chap, circa 115kg (250 lbs), and mainly ski blue and red runs and would like to know what the difference is in reality between say the 60 and 80 boot.

 

Many thanks for any help

for your size 60 or 80 will be the most effective flex for relaxing at the bar and enjoying 8 or 12 pints.eek.gif

 

at 250 lbs, even if you do not ski very hard, a boot with a flex rating below 100 will not be of much value for your skiing.

 

for a female skier skier half your weight skiing on blues or greens, an 80 flex boot would be appropriate.

Thanks for your advice.

 

I will get some 100's for the morning and swap to a pair of 60's for the late afternoon....
