I am currently perfecting the fit on a pair of Rossignol R2005 (RL 11) plug boots and am pretty close except for one issue I can't seem to figure out - when I flex forward my heels are forced back and bang against the shell. It is quite uncomfortable when skiing and doesn't make it much fun to move forward. Any advice toward solving this problem would be much appreciated.
Here are some thoughts I had:
- I am overflexing and my ankle is locking out, causing my heel to lift. I removed the spoilers at the back of the liners to put me in a more upright position and it seemed to help, but the problem is still there. These boots are ZB/ZB and I weigh 175 lbs. Could they be too soft?
- There is insufficient padding in the heel. The stock liners were extremely uncomfortable due to the flo pads in the heel so I have been using my 4 year old Dobermann lace-up liners, which may be worn out. Would more padding help?
- The shell may need to be altered to accommodate my heel, with a pocket made at the top of my heel to allow for more room. But I keep grinding in that area and it doesn't seem to help. Maybe I'm doing doing it wrong.
Thanks in advance for the help!
