Thermoformable liner

Polyethylene liner, 3 mm thick thermoformable material. By heating your liner, you can compress the foam to make room and increase comfort. Shock Absorber Area system in the heel for cushioning the shocks on bumps or jumps.

How to thermoform your ski boot at home

1- Preheat the oven to 80°C on fan mode.

2- Remove the liners from the shells.

3- Remove the insoles from your liners.

4- Put the liner in the oven for just 5 minutes.

5- Remove the liners from the oven.

6- Put the soles inside the liners.

7- Put the liners back into the boots.

8- Put on your boots and lock each buckle to the mid-way setting.

9- Wait for 15 minutes at room temperature before removing the boot.

There you go, you are ready to ski

Hook adjustment

3 micrometric aluminium hooks and one 3-position hook on the shin to fit all sizes of calf. Wide strap for powerful and easy tightening of the top of the shell. Walk position on the shin hook (Walk in red) to increase the movement of the collar.

SIZING

Fine foot (last 100 mm), polyethylene heat-moulding liner: 3 mm heat-moulding foam all the way around the foot. Lightweight and comfortable liner. Preformed foam at the ankles. Flexible material so that the shape of the liner conforms easily to the climbing and walking phases. In case of discomfort after a few days of use, it is possible to heat-mould your liner.

WHAT IS THE FLEX?

To provide an indication of rigidity, brands assign a flex rating to every boot. This figure indicates the rigidity of the whole boot: the higher the figure, the stiffer the shell. It is generally considered that a flex of 70 is for average to intermediate level skiers. A flex from 70 to 90 is for intermediate skiers. Beyond this value, the products are aimed at advanced skiers. Heavy builds can, however, go up a level.

How to try on ski boots?

Once the foot is in the boot, fasten the buckles to the midpoint. Can you go further? This means the volume of the boot isn't right for you. Once the boot is closed, you must flex the boots 3 times by pressing hard on the shins (put your hands on your knees to help) and push your heel backwards inside the boot. Stand upright: your foot should touch the end of the shell. When you flex, your foot should move backwards so you can no longer feel the end.

What should you do if you experience foot pain?

1/ Choose a technical skiing sock, fine to avoid areas of pressure and improve blood circulation in the foot.

2/ Choose a sole that is adapted to the shape of your foot to avoid crushing it and it touching the shell. Ask a salesperson in store for advice.

3/ Thermoform your liner.

HOW TO AVOID HAVING COLD FEET?

Although it is often forgotten, drying the liner is the most effective way to avoid having cold feet. Even at -10°C, the foot sweats and the liner cannot dry by itself in its plastic shell, even over several days. Ideally, it should be removed every day. There is the option to use boot dryers that are more convenient because there is no need to remove the liner, you just plug them in!
