Re: New models of hard boots and tests for extremecarving

I have the .951 in the soft version. Did ride them with the red springs for 3 days. They were too stiff at my liking. Gonna ride them this winter further with the blue springs and asked mountainslope for the specs of the blue spring, because I feel I want an even softer spring. With custom footbeds ...

Re: New Extremecarver Gen5: preview

I have tested several Virus´ and found them more demanding than the Swoards (but did not test the UFC). The Virus´ want a more sportive rider (especially the ...

Re: Boot flex

Crumb means?

Re: UPZ RC-10 movement inside shell
