Still working on it! (tests throughout the season)... If you are happy with the UPZ, stay with them they are also great boots!

In Gastein I was wondering how many World Cup riders have switched to the 951. I have also spoken with one of them and there is a good reputation for this boot. Even if it is a kind of follow-up model he told me that he does not remembering that anytime so many rider have switched their boots. For me (and probably a few other EC riders) this first models are to stiff but in my opinion it is one very important beginning for rethinking and further models (also think that the other 2 (bigger manuf.) would not be happy to lose market share and reputation)
Thanks to MS
