Palau is the liner supplier for Dynafit, La Sportiva, Fischer, and other well-known boot brands. This is because the 100% closed-cell EVA foam is highly moldable and offers great thermal retention. Being European, Palau of course didn’t forget to make their liners walk really well with strategic cutouts in the ankle and tongue-designs that don’t impede skinning. The Tour Lite Pro Evo liners are medium thickness, lightweight, with an Achilles flex zone and a Velcro closure. This model makes a great replacement for stock liners found on the SCARPA F1, Sportiva Sytron/Sideral, Dynafit TLT6/7, and other high-performance ski touring boots.
- 100% closed-cell EVA foam is very receptive to molding.
- Tongue-design doesn’t interfere with walking like an overlap.
- Velcro flap-system offers better calf-wrap and contact while skiing.
- Flex-zone behind the ankle allows for unimpeded skinning and booting.
- 8mm thick, Medium Density is light, flexible, yet reasonably warm.
- Compatible with TLT6, 7, Fischer Travers, F1, Spitfire and similar models.
Questions & Reviews
I have a pair of technical zero G scout in 27.5
The stock liners have pretty much perfect volume around my foot (high instep), but I have pressure points around my ankles (medial and lateral malleolus)- especially when in touring mode. I’ve had the boots punched, which has improved things a bit
The stock liners have minimal padding around the ankles
How will these compare (perfect for me would be the same volume in the foot, more padding in the ankle/ calf)
I pulled a liner from a Scout boot and compared to the Palau liner. The Tecnica liner was a bit thicker, firmer and more molded. When it comes to pressure points, punching is the answer. Even though Tecnica has designed their boots to punch well, there is Plastic memory and punches tend to go back some to the original shape. So get punch again and More. Maybe adding boot foam around those spots will also help alleviate the hurt.
I've padded it with boot foam, without much effect
Do you think a Power LT liner might work?
Or should I just put up with it
It's not too bad in ski mode, but hurts in walk mode after a while
In comparison, my travers CS are the most comfortable boots I've ever had
The Power LT liners could be better. They are more of a performance match to the Scout boot. Thicker at the cuff, that may help around the top of your ankle bone.
Front stitch to rear stitch is 26cm, the overall length of the liner is 27cm. The Tour Lite Pro Evo is comparable to the stock Atomic Backland liner, perhaps just a smidge higher volume, so if you don't feel slop in the boot with the Backland liners then the Tour Lite Pro Evo should work well for you. You could save a little weight by going with the Tour Lite Pro which has the same fit with the only difference being that the cuff on the Pro Evo is higher volume and more rigid. The weight of the Tour Lite Pro Evo in a 26 is 157g and the weight of the Tour Lite Pro is 143g.
looking for a replacement liner for my PDG2. currently using a tlt8 custom light liner but still too much volume in the front foot. does these have more volume than the tlt8 CL, but still not too big in the upper calf? tested with the tlt8 CR liner and it was almost impossible to close the upper buckle.
These will be lower volume than the liners you are used to, particularly around the foot and upper cuff. I would recommend looking at the Intuition Pro Tour Liners. Intuition actually makes the liners for the F1 so it will be quite similar to the stock liner that comes with the boot.
recently JMC asked about the F1 LT size 27 and Cole recommended a size 26.5 Pro Evo, so does that mean a 28.5 would be the best fit for my 29.0?
Why the drop in size?
I think you'd find the closest liner to be the Palau Power LT! Skis great, walks great, and has a similar volume to the stock liner.
I tried on the lightly used and molded, Pro Tour 28.0s from my resort boots, and they fit quit well. (Same outside length as stock liners)
I wouldn’t mind getting a bit freer skinning movement than the Pro Tour though.
I have a super skinny lower leg, so I need a liner with plenty of material around calf and shin.
Do you suggest these Palau TourLite Pro Evo’s, something else, or just getting another pair of Intuition Pro Tours?
Overall I think when it comes down to it the Pro Tour liner and the Palau Power LT are fairly similar, but the Pro Tour is definitely a bit thicker in the cuff so you'd be sort of splitting hairs with the cost benefits. Both liners are without a doubt very excellent though. Give us a shout if you have anymore questions!
Palau Tour Lite Pro Liners will be the closest fit to the stock liner on the Fischer Travers CS. At 8mm thick, the Palau Tour Lite Pro Evo Liners will take up more space than the stock liner. Reach out to us at email@example.com if you have any further liner questions!
Just picked up a pair of la sportiva solar boots in size 29. Which intuition liner would you recommend if I am looking for a larger volume (stiffer) than stock liner? Have 1.5 fingers behind heel in shell. The solar has unbelievable range of motion huh?
Intuition Pro Tour while would make the boot slightly stiffer would also reduce the range of motion in the boot as well. A bit of a give-and-take sort of situation. Give us a shout if you have anymore questions!
I am looking for a replacement for my (very worn out) stock liners for Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour 24.5.
My liners are light and comfortable when skinning, and I like the snug feel of the heel, but the position of the J insert tends to give me blisters on the inner ankle bone especially when skiing more aggressively.
Would the Tour Lite Pro Evo be a good replacement in terms of range of motion/weigth/fit?
I am a little bit worried they would take up too much volume, as I have skinny ankle/heel but wide metatarsal and tend to have a pain-inducing/circulation-cutting fit in ski mode when wearing slightly thicker socks.
If you are looking for the closest replacement to the stock liner, I would look at the Intuition Pro Tour Liners in the medium volume. To compare the two, neither the stock liner or the Intuition Pro Tour liner will have a ton of ROM. The medium volumes will have different foam volumes in different areas of the boot compared with the stock liner, but with an aggressive heat mold, they will be as close as you can get. However, if you would like a liner with slightly less volume compared with the stock liner, check out the Palau Power LT.
The Palau Tour Lite Pro Evo will have significantly less volume than the stock liner in the Hoji Pro Tour, and you may feel like you are swimming.
