Re: New Hybrid Soft/Hard Boot [Deeluxe Ground Control]

For many years I say that for bringing more people to alpine carving we need an hybrid boot! Something in between softboots and hardboots, which looks new and not like ski boots. When something looks new, it is more attractive for people outside of our sport and it can make a small revolution. I'm v...

Re: New models of hard boots and tests for extremecarving

I tried the UPZ RC12 out of the box (thus with original springs) and red tongue (softest one): they were clearly softer than MS out of the box (even MS mounted with blue - soft - springs). But some of my mates found the original UPZ RC12 too stiff for their taste and preferred to install another spr...

Re: SWOARD ECS 2019 > how to participate + questions

1) Is there anybody who can pick me up on his way to Zinal (I rented a place in Mayoux, 25min before Zinal center)? This would be very nice since I don't have to rent a car. Offcourse I want to share in the expenses. You also should ask your question in Who When Where / Qui Quand Où / Chi Quando Do...

Re: New models of hard boots and tests for extremecarving

The Mountain Slope boots (out of the box) are definitely very stiff. Since the beginning I said this to Hansruedi who I met twice and rode with. I also rode with Roger (original conceiver of Northwave boots), but he seems no more being involved in development. I own 3 pairs myself (2 World Cup and 1...

Re: Nouveaux modèles de hardboots et tests pour l'extremecarving

Après toutes les vidéos qu'on a faites, si les gens ne se rendent pas compte qu'en hard boots on est plus dynamique, on ne peut rien faire. Sauf peut-être de les placer à côté de la piste en spectateurs: là ça convainc vraiment. :wink:
