325 liner molding guide?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a pair of 325s. They did not come with heating instructions for the liners. I want to bring them to my ski shop to have them molded. Anyone have a PDF of the protocol for this i.e. Temp and time in oven?

Awesome. It has not occurred to me to heat the shells, particularly in that manner. I could use a little bit more room just aft of the toe box as I have wide metatarsals.

The idea of heating the shell is that by heating the shell it adapts to the shape of the foot and the liner. I managed to fit 24.5 head stratos and 24 Raichle boots into my wide 25.5 foot using heated shell and zipfit liners. I've got a snug fit now. Actually I want more foam on rear foot for better heel hold. The disadvantage is my front big toe nail is getting damaged... No wonder some racers (some of them go two size smaller) remove toe nails...

Sven (or anyone who do zipfit liners) is the person to talk to if you want boots to fit your wide foot really well, especially if you had similar problem in the past. But you might get sucked into buying zipfit liners as well as getting shells at least one size smaller for performance, at least for Deeluxe boots (UPZ boots have right shell size BTW). They're very good but they ain't cheap and they're very good at convincing that those stock liners are crap (which is unfortunately true). You've been warned ;-)

"This video does not exist".

Followed link on another thread for instructions, page does not exist anymore.

I got some 325 this winter and now am looking to mold them. Nobody around here seems to know anything, so will do them myself... If I can find instructions!

Zipfits are superb. I've used them in Full Tilt's, Dalbello's, UPZ's and they are going into my new 425 pros. They have all been improved by them. If you stick with the stock liners its fairly easy to do it yourself, just take your time and have everything prepared before commencing cooking.
