This boot is ideal for the advanced skier seeking the right mix of performance/comfort/precision. The Evofit 900 boot has a PU shell with a progressive and constant flex of 90 whatever the temperature. The liner’s Overlap system ("wallet" type) helps to change the weight distribution and makes them easy to get on/off.
The Evofit liner offers optimal comfort, improved by thermoforming the entire liner!
This boot is equipped with 4 aluminum micrometric hooks. You can adjust the buckle length by screwing or unscrewing the hook. The top hook has 3 positions (tool-free adjustment) to fit all calf sizes. A wide adjustment strap at the top provides very powerful tightening.
What is Flex?
To provide an indication of boot rigidity, brands assign a flex rating to every boot. This figure indicates the rigidity of the entire assembly: the higher the figure, the stiffer the shell. A flex below 60 is designed for beginner level skiers. A flex from 60 to 80 is for intermediate skiers. Beyond this value, the products are aimed at advanced skiers. Well-built 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 inside the plastic shells.
2- Fasten the hooks 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.
