  1. Work some squats in, too.

    Yo Lci!!

    I'm curious if the Idaho springs area road closures are something that happens every year with road maintenance, or if it's particular highway adjustment project. Not that it matters I suppose just curious if that regular lane closure is a standard thing year-to-year.
  3. My understanding is that a lot of people started with the middle locked and both ends floating, but over time the standard seems to have settled on a locked back and everything forward floating. Definitely play around with it and see what works best for you.

    Oof. Rest up. I'm planning on running laps of Switchback or Twist (depending on where the race training is set) testing a few boards out. Nice and close to the parking lot and tools over there. If anyone is over that way, say hello.
  5. I don't know anything about the business, but Le Feet in Winter Park does Zipfits.
  6. They might not be solving any materials problem. Carbon might just be a material they have a process for that yields a result they want. One of those results might simply be to have a carbon boot.
  7. It's too much for me, but for a handmade small batch carbon product it doesn't seem out of line. Comparing it to a bike frame, surfboard, etc.
  8. Awesome. Thanks! The Fischer has a channel in the back of the cuff that the link would best in during walk mode. I'll investigate more. I suspect it would be fine for softening the boot, but maybe a bit unweildly for splitboarding. I bought these for chunder days, so splitting is a secondary academic concern for me presently.

    I have a 17m version. I wasn't planning on selling it, but make an offer and I might. Mine is 4x4 and UPM.
  10. Worst case scenario you start linking a couple turns more down the fall line. After skiing it might actually feel similar. Once you get comfortable with a few of those, you can drive harder to get it more across the fall line, even on narrower trails. Don't beat yourself up too badly. After an injury and a couple years off I am coming back well below my former ability. I work on certain skills, but I also realize I'm out on the hill and having a good time regardless. Maybe that translates. Have fun!
  11. Cool. Travers is 6cm. I'm not convinced I'll need springs with these, but I'll look into it after some riding time. I did fine with old freeride AT boots, so I imagine these will be closer to "soft" flexing for me.
  12. I have the Roxa shown, but the new stock I believe is all what Jack is running. Good info on springs. I ordered a few industrial die springs and will report back good or bad. On the GS boards and good snow the red is just find for me. I imagine the Imperial red's I ordered at a touch softer will be better for me all around. I'm on the WC version, for what that's worth.
  13. Seems a bit more snug in the heal and mid foot, where the Atomics felt pretty much the same width all the way for me. This of course is with no liner molding in either. The cuff channel is definitely too narrow to fit a BTS without serious mods. I think that's more material than I'd want to remove.
  14. Other than the cool top sheet, what do you have there?
  15. I'm curious if the Phantom one will fit. If anyone has a stock Backland, I'd be interested in the width of the link and pin center to center measurement in the locked position. I won't get them on snow until next week at the earliest (depending on conditions), but in carper surfing they seem pretty damn flexible fore/ aft and side to side locked. I'd say stiffer than and Alien, but nothing compared to most HB's. I can't imagine the are fun to actually ski in
