Skied this boot for the first time today. I could not keep my weight forward. My friends said the boot is too stiff for me and that is why my weight was back. Previously skied Salomon Wave 10s and Head Raptors (flex 100 to 110). I had the Speedmachine's set at flex 120. I took out the stock footbeds that came with the boot and put in some I bought online. The arch was very high and I thought that might be the problem. I will try the Speedmachine footbeds tomorrow.
I am 6'2" tall and weigh 220 pounds. Have skied for 50 years. Is this boot to stiff for me and if so can I make it softer? What else can anyone suggest to solve this riddle. The Speedmachine is so comfortable and pricy I hate to give up on it. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
