Fitted with the Evofit liner, this boot adapts extremely well to all body shapes: the instant Fit is excellent and can be improved by thermoforming the entire liner! The liner’s Overlap system ("wallet" type) helps change the weight distribution, provides good acceleration and makes them easy to get on/off.
This boot is equipped with 4 extremely robust aluminum micro-metric hooks. Adjust the length of the buckle by tightening or loosening the hook. The top hook has 3 positions (adjustment without tools) for every calf size. A wide adjustment strap at the top of the upper provides powerful and easy tightening of the top of the shell.
What is flex?
Brands assign a flex rating to every boot that indicates its rigidity. This rating indicates the rigidity of the boot: the higher the figure, the stiffer the shell. A 60–70 flex rating is considered best for skiers at beginner level. A 70–100 flex rating is for intermediate skiers. A flex rating above 80 is aimed at advanced skiers. Heavier skiers can go up one level.
How to find the right size
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 the boot is closed, flex the boots three 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 tip.
What should you do if you experience foot pain?
1- Choose a technical ski sock that's thin to prevent pressure points and promote blood circulation in the foot.
2- Choose a sole that fits the shape of your foot so it doesn't feel compressed against the shell. Ask a store clerk for advice.
3- If after two days of skiing, you still feel some discomfort, thermoform your liner.
Is my liner thermoformable, and what use is thermoforming?
The Evofit boot is made of 100% thermoformable foam, which can be heated to mould to the shape of your feet and the shell of the boot. This improves the foot/liner/shell compatibility for greater overall comfort.
How to thermoform your liner at home
1- Preheat the convection oven to 80°C.
2- Remove the liners from the shells.
3- Remove the insoles from the liners.
4- Put the liner part only in the oven for 10 minutes.
5- Remove the liners from the oven.
6- Put the insoles back inside the liners.
7- Put the liners back inside the boots.
8- Put the boots on and lightly fasten each hook.
9- Wait for 15 minutes at room temperature before taking them off.
You are now ready to ski!
How to store your ski boots
1- Air your boots by removing the liner from the plastic shells.
2- Fasten the buckles at the first notch to prevent the boots from becoming misshapen and, if possible, store them in a boot bag.
3- Ideally, store them in a dry place where the temperature will not drop below 10°C. This will protect the plastic of the boots.
