Palau liners are made with 100% highly rated EVA foam. The thermo-moldable foam is closed-cell which maximizes thermal retention. Palau make their liners with a dense cut of the foam that retains its shape after a heat mold or some skiing. That is why they were chosen as the liner supplier for Dynafit, La Sportiva, and other well-known boot brands. Now you can get replacement liners for lightweight backcountry boots with the aftermarket offering from Palau. The Tour Lite Pro liners are relatively thin, lightweight, and have an Achilles flex zone. Perfect replacements for TLT, Spitfire, and other high performance ski mountaineering boots.
- 100% closed-cell EVA foam is very receptive to molding.
- Tongue design doesn’t interfere with walking like an overlap.
- Lacing system give you additional ski-support if desired.
- Flex zone behind the ankle allows for unimpeded skinning.
- 7mm thickness is light, flexible, yet reasonably warm.
- Compatible with TLT5, 6, PDG, Spitfire, and other models.
Questions & Reviews
Also looking at the 7mm ultralight race liner. I read that the race liner is a bit less dense and therefore might heat mold out a little more, giving me even more space in this spot (and my bunions, which I didn't mention above. Also, it appears to have even less seams that could cause trouble...Thanks!
Quick answer, the 7mm race liner is very minimalist and would give you less of a good fit then the quite good CR stock liner.
the Tour Lite liners are going to be the right replacement. The Power LTs are slightly higher volume in the cuff and might make it difficult to buckle the boot.
These are probably the closest to the stock liner. The evo is slightly thicker but not a huge amount--they both take up similar space around the ankles and toes, the main difference is that the evo is slightly more robust around the calf and does have a velcro tongue wrap.
The Palau Tour Lite Pro will indeed be a great replacement option if you would like a liner that gets you close to the fit of the stock Spitfire 2.1 liner. As for sizing, I would go with the 25.5!
I'm wondering how much Palau Tour Lite Pro Evo would be beefier comparing to stock liners
Can you tell me if these are softer than the Intuition Pro Tour? I recently replaced my packed out Tecnica liners with the Pro Tour and really hate them on the ups, I find them far too rigid to get the same range of motion and all that friction causes blisters. Downhill they work fine, although the rigidity at the cuff digs into my calves more than I'm used to. Now trying to pad out my stock liners instead, or give in and buy new boots. But if I could find some softer after market liners I might be set!
Thanks for answer!
The Palau Tour Lite Pro liners will be quite a bit lower volume than your current Intuition Pro Tour Liners, which will make for a higher volume fit in your boots. The closest to the Pro Tour LV that we have from Palau is the Palau Power LT. Also, for availability on Intuition liners, reach out to email@example.com, and we can set you up for a notification that will alert you when your size in a Pro Tour LV comes in stock!
The closest aftermarket liner to the Stock Liner in the TLT6 Mountain CR boots is the Palau Tour Lite Pro Evo. Here is a breakdown of the differences in the liners that you mentioned.
The Palau Tour Lite Pro has the lowest volume foam at 7mm. This will provide a slightly higher volume fit compared with the TLT6 Mountain stock liner. At 8mm of foam, the Evo is thicker, and more closely mirrors the TLT6 Mountain stock liner. One thing to keep in mind, aftermarket liners are designed to fit a wider range of shells, so they will not be quite as specific in fit as compared with a stock liner.
The final liner that you mentioned is the Palau Power LT. This liner has similar volume in the lower as compared with the Evo, maybe a little thicker in the toe. However, the upper liner has higher volume foam than the Evo, and is intended to increase the flex of your boots. This translates to some reduction in the cuff rotation.
As far as fit goes, it would be best to stick with your current boot size. If you have further questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Depending on your shell size, the closest liner to the Stock TLT8 Carbonio would be the TLT7 Custom Light Liners under our Dynafit Liners listing. Although not exactly the same fit, it will be pretty close.
As far as the Palau Tour Lite Pro Liner is concerned, I would say it will most closely mirror the stock liner in the Dynafit TLT 8 Carbonio of any aftermarket liner that we carry. However, I would not consider it essentially the same. The stock liner in a boot will have design features specifically oriented to complement the shell it was designed to go inside. This liner will have a slightly more generic fit intended for a wider range of boot shells. The Palau Tour Lite Pro will get you darn close, but not exact. If you have further liner questions, reach out to us at email@example.com.
You're spot on. The Palau Tour Lite Pro is going to be the closest in similarity to the stock Atomic Backland Carbon liner! I'd go for the 26.5 for sizing as well.
Would these work? What size for that shell? I can’t seem to find the intuition pro tour in a size 28 but thought these Palau pro tours may work better. Advice?
i currently use the Backland Ultimate in 28 Mondo/298mm with a 27.5 Palau Power LT Liner for Splitboarding. It works fine for me, the Boot is just a little to long for most Splitboards in my Size, so i have Toe/heeldrag. I think i could maybe downsize to a 27 Mondo Ultimate, what Liner would u suggest to me ? I Think if i downsize the Ultimate i maybe need a liner with lower volume to fit my feet, but im scared that they are to cold and not comfy enough for 6+ hour tours..
Cheers Philipp !
