The published last width is 100mm. Is that the same on all sizes? I noticed the the Fischer Traverse CS last increases for each size...up to 104mm for 28.5, which is good for my hobbit foot.
My LS Sideral II boot size is 28.5 & I have punched out the shell in the front near my middle toes to the point that the OEM liner fits super snug. It was enough to cause pain in one of my toes. I finally took an Exacto blade and cut an X in the offending spot to get through the season. That helped a lot. For whatever reason, the La Sportiva liner doesn't want to stretch on the length when baked, apparently due to the outer fabric. I wonder if this liner will yield more length when baked, compared to the OE...
I have the women's 2.0 (DIN 10 I guess) and the B&D riser plates on the heel pieces. When touring on flat terrain the heel lever wants to flop forward getting in the way. Isn't there a spring built into the binding to prevent this? Or is the B&D riser causing it to happen?
Will this will work with an SCTT binding with a heel extension plate? Will it work in conjunction with ski crampons?
I recently picked up this pair of Radicals 2nd hand for my daughter. As you can see, one heel has been replaced with a newer version (what vintage is the newer one?), but BOTH heel pieces rotate when in uphill mode when in step 1. Frustrating. Will the $30 Radical Antitwist Locks do the trick, as compared to the more expensive Speed Antitwist Base units? Does an in-store purchase of the Radical Antitwist Lock include installation?
