UPZ rc10 - WC RCR race cuff set

Recommended Posts

Has anyone added these to their RC10's? How did they affect the stiffness of the boot?

I ride higher binding angles, and Im getting more lateral flex than I'd like, I'm hoping these would stiffen them up a bunch.

You mean the stiffer grey tongues? I've put them on mine and they definitely firm things up, the stock tongues are soft in comparison.

I believe OP is talking about these-

I rode once last night with the dark grey tongues and RCR cuffs. Conditions were very easy to hold an edge, so I don't think it was a real good test. Glad I went with the dark grey tongues, those seemed to add some lateral and forward stiffness. Still not quite as lateral stiff as I would like. I don't think the RCR cuffs did a whole lot. After taking the boot apart, I think the soft spot is right where to cuffs attach to, if the plastic on the lower half of the boot was stiffer and went further up past the ankle this would add a lot of lateral stiffness.

do you use toe-clip or step-in bindings?

TD3 with toe clips, I plan to move back to step ins but my heels are pretty worn out and I want to get a new pair for the new boots. The boots don't look to give much. I don't think switching to steps ins will feel any stiffer.

depends if the flex you're perceiving is coming from the cuff, or the binding interface.

at 6'5 and 240#ish, i find my RC10's with black tongues, squidgy deeluxe thermo liner and stepins to be wonderfully rigid.

Don Pablo,

 

What angles are you running? I'm trying to figure out at what point stepins are needed for proper stiffness at higher angles.

Used the step ins with the black tongues. Didn't notice much of a difference than back with the standard TD3s, they were soft. Put the stiff grey tongue in just the front boot and that helped. I'll probably keep riding on this for a while.

Sorry, no winning lotto numbers here...

 

I created an album on imgur

Board setup: 182 Coiler NSR; TD3 steps ins 65 / 60, 3degree (all toe lift) / 6degree (standard cant positioning); Bomber 4mm lite plate

 

Can't really see the canting settings on the cuff, they are in the middle setting which is the way the boots came. I've never had the change that on a boot before.

 

5th image isn't really relevant, but the plate flexes enough that my rear foot binding base plate digs into the boiler plate (I have the BP cant disks)

you can marginally change the height of the cuff a little further with them, and of course the cant angle .. both arrows pointing down i think adds more height, but also changes where the cuff pivots from as well.

no more suggestions beyond that though, i assume the liners are pretty beefy.
