Received my springs from Drupi a few weeks ago and have ridden them twice since putting them on. The install was fairly simple and although you have to be careful whacking the old springs out with a hammer, everything went on and bolted up very easily.

The difference in ride quality is incredible. I'm fairly new to EC but it definitely made a huge difference for me. Thanks Drupi!

How does this spring compare to riding in walk setting?

I'm just 70kg, once they've been out in the cold for a while i find my boots are enough to flex without locking them into ride setting...

Walk mode is dangerous for carving. possible fractured ankles.
walk mode is used for walking. not for carving :naughty: :naughty: :naughty: :naughty:

the spring system serves to flex progressive :bravo: :bravo:

I immediately noticed a difference after changing the springs for walking, however when I went to the local resort, I did not notice much difference walking from the parking lot.

Riding, they feel similar to riding with walk settings (ie softer flex) but with the resistance required to allow proper feedback and movement. I'd agree that walk mode is a little too "free" for what EC requires, but the springs do free up the allowed movement of your ankles.

Do NOT ride in walk mode. If anything use walk mode only on the back boot, never on the front. Don't ask me how I know this.

Have tried the DGSS system for three days on my VIRUS UPZ RC10 hardboots and board Virus Nightmare (80/75 degrees stance) : I must say, I was sceptical at first if this system would bring something over the standard springsystem: well I was impressed: the DGSS system is more dynamic and therefore has a better overall feel in riding and pressure build-up. They are keepers. The setup of the new system and disassembly of the existing system was also very easy. I only needed a screwdriver and socket spanner (number 10). Thanks Drupi :bravo:
