Limited dorsiflexion/toe lifts?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I ski on Atomics Cloud 9 150cm and since I've hadFull Tilt boot I got a lot of quad burn.  I noticed that did not have as much quad burn on the Volkl Luna(no ramp angle I think).  Also my boots have lots of forward lean, not so much from the rear of the boot but from the tongue of the boot.  So this morning I put some toe lifts(I guess about 2 to 3 mm) in my boots and I felt like I skied better as I could press better down on the ball of my feet.  My instructor told me I skied better than last year too.  The thing is I have limited dorsiflexion, but I've always had a hard time pressing down on the ball of my feet. So I have 2 questions:

1. I thought that people with dorsiflexion should not use toe lift?

2. Will there be a difference in skiing if the toe lift is built on the bindings(not sure if that can be done) vs the boot?

Think inside the box, oh I mean inside the boot
