Palau took their All Track collection to the next level by offering a new “power” liner in a slimmer package. Working off the mighty Powertrack 10, they shaved the liner down to 8mm to allow its use in tighter-fitting and more articulate boots. Using a medium density heat-moldable EVA foam, Palau made the Power LT a precise fitting liner to boost the performance of any boot. Whether it’s a beefy freeride boot or a svelte touring boot, this is the upgrade for your current liner. The Palau Power LT is designed with a thinner upper cuff to fit more calf sizes and cuff shapes and it will keep your feet warm and comfortable while not foregoing performance.
- 8mm custom 100% moldable mid-density foam.
- Tongue Liner with optional laces for easy entry and close fit.
- Precision cut for lower volume beef boots, e.g. Hawx, Lab, Maestrale, Vulcan, Spectre.
- Performance upgrade for the Spitfire, TLT6, TLT7, F1, or similar.
- Relief zone in spine for better range-of-motion.
- Overall medium volume but molds precisely.
Questions & Reviews
I would not machine wash them, but as a rule of thumb, making sure to remove your liners from your boots every time you finish skiing, and potentially drying them on a boot dryer, makes a big difference. To hopefully help combat the smell, one option could be these SIDAS dryer bags.
My boots are a 26.5, but it looks like you don't have a 26.5 in stock. Would the 26 do the trick? My actual foot length measurements are 262mm and 263mm...
Thanks for all the advice and knowledge y'all give, very helpful reading all the reviews/questions.
I am looking for a liner to slightly stiffen up the boot and provide more padding around my shins. Would this be the right liner or is it going to be too tight? The alternative would be the Palau Tour Lite Pros. If I went that route, should I get the 29 or the 29.5. Thanks for any help.
These would definitely add substance and padding to your boots. However, I do think they might be a little overkill for a Backland Carbon shell if you do not particularly need to take up volume in the boot. I would say the Palau Tour Lite Pro Evo in the MV might be a better option for you. They would add support and padding in the shin while being a little thinner than the Power LT in the lower shell, and not having quite as huge of a tongue. You would want the 29.5 in that liner.
You're correct that the Power LT would be a good middle ground between the Pro Tour and the F1 liner in terms of thickness, walkability and support. However, it's hard to say anything about whether it would stand up to the sort of wear that you're describing on the ankle. Ideally, we would correct whatever is eating into the liner first. If you'd like to discuss this issue more in depth, please email email@example.com, maybe with some pictures of the wear on the liner that you're describing and we can try to come up with solutions.
The cuff bolt is covered with a patch, has it worn out? I know that it will still wear the liner over time, but maybe double patching will help. When I checked that, the outer fabric of the stock liner seemed pretty stout for a liner. I wouldn't think that the fabric on the Palau liner would be any stronger in that spot, then an Intuition liner.
Will the fit difference, as you suggest, make a difference, only testing will tell. The thickness does fall in-between the F1 and Pro Tour.
I create a foam donut that's thicker on one side than the other, and leaves a little padding in the center that fits perfectly in the indented circle where those nasty protruding cuff hinges are so the metal has a buffer. I carefully remove the patch covering the cuff bolt, then place the foam donut on the removed patch. Then place the patch back on with the thicker part of the padding tword the heel side and it works pretty well. I still get wear on the boot liner, but I only feel that hinge on extreme sidehilling. I make them for both sides...Give it a go and it works great!
These liners are noticeably easier to get into than the stock liner, I always had trouble getting in and out of the boot, but these seem to have a much smoother interior material.
thought the stock liners were OK paired with a heat molded footbed from skimo. I just got these liners to replace the stock ones, and may they take up a lot more space. Vice grip feel out of the box, and I got a big blister on the outside of my heel during the second tour with the palaus. Did about 5 miles and 3K each day to break them in.
Any update on how they broke in?
The Palau Power LT will likely be a pretty close fit to the stock liner In the Tecnica Zero G Tour Pro Scout. If you are looking to take up some extra volume, I would consider the Intuition Pro Tour in a MV.
I have a pair of used 2017 Salomon MTN labs in 28.5 that I am trying to decide what liner to replace with. My true foot size is closer to a 28 with medium volume, wide forefeet and a narrow ankle, which seems to lead to consistent heel rub. I am leaning towards the Palau Power LT Liners in 28. Would that work well with these boots, and is there something else you would recommend?
If your forefoot is on the wider side this liner might feel a bit snug before it breaks in, but it should help lock your heel in nicely. A low volume Intuition Pro Tour liner would also hold the heel in snuggly, though it needs to be heat molded and might initially feel significantly snugger throughout the foot.
I've a pair of Dynafit Radical Pro 2021 model in 25.5 size.
The boots fit perfectly to my feet and I've never had any pain both on skinning up and skiing down.
The only issue I have is with the liner that cause me frozen toes due to its shape. I've tried with a palau tour lite pro of another paire of boots and it was much better for my toes but too much space on the ankles and cuff.
Do you think that I can solve this issue by replacing the stock liner of my dynafit radical pro with a pair of palau alltracks power LT?
Is the Palau Power LT Liner a good replacement option for the Fischer Traverse CS if I need to take up a little bit more space that the stock liner?
If so, should I order the exact size as the shell ( 28.5 ) or size down a half size?
Thanks for your expertise
The Palau Power LT would be a great option - a little bit thicker than the stock liner for sure.
I'd recommend the 28.5, but the 28 would work fine as well.
I would personally opt for the Palau Power LT over the Intuition. Both will take up significantly more room than the stock liner and both will make the boot feel stiffer, but the Palau will walk better of the two. If you're not worried about killing your walk mode and you need a serious amount of space taken up, the Intuition will take up a little more space and might add a little more stiffness than the Palau.
The 22.5 and 23.5 in the Tecnica Zero G Scout have the same boot sole length. Tecnica has relied on a different liner in the 22.5, but it is the same shell.
The Palau Power LT is a great option for a replacement liner in the Zero G Scout. If you are normally a 23.5, a 23.5 in the Palau Power LT would work well in your boots. If you have further liner questions, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thanks for reaching out! The Palau Tour Lite Pro Evo will be the closest fit to the stock liner in the Dynafit TLT8 Expedition CR . It sounds like you are searching for a higher volume of foam in your liner.
The Power LT will have a similar volume of foam in the lower as compared with the Pro Evo, but it will have a much thicker cuff. I think it would be worth discussing your fit issues in more detail, as they could stem from the shell, not the liner of your boot, or a little of both. Fill out a boot fitter, and we can get into nitty gritty details!
For a heavy freeride boot like the Salomon Quest Pro Pebax, I would go with a pretty robust liner. The Palau Power LT might work, but I think the Intuition Pro Tour in a MV (HV if you really need to eat up volume) would be your best bet. You will want the 28.0 size.
The Power LT would be the one that would stiffen up the flex noticeably. Like most "beef" liners in a light touring boot, they will take up more space in the cuff. Unless you have narrow shin/calves, closing the cuff properly may be an issue.
