What is flex?
To provide an indication of rigidity, brands assign a flex rating to every boot. This number determines the rigidity of the whole: the higher the value the straighter the casing. A flex of 60 is considered best for skiers of intermediate to advanced level. A flex level of 65 to 75 is intended for advanced skiers. Beyond that, the products are addressed to experts. The strong gauges can however increase by a level.
How do you try on ski boots?
Once your 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 you've fastened your boots, you need to flex 3 times while pushing your calves forward (put your hands on your knees), which will push your heel back into the boot. Stand up: 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.
How to get your ski boots on/off easily?
Pull the tongue towards the front and outside the feet: That allows you to generously open the shell and easily facilitate the fitting.
