I've been considering Sytron and I'm curious what Skorpius offers for +200g (ish) in weight. Are these much stiffer boots intended to drive bigger skis? Both seem to be 2 buckles + optional power strap in the same format as the previous Spitfire/Sideral, so I'm wondering what differentiates the two lines. Sytron seems like a skimo race/touring hybrid?
Can you still obtain the "power strap" and spoiler for Sideral 1.0 (the optional strap that goes above the main cuff buckle)? If not, are there any other straps from similar LaSportiva boots that will substitute? Do you know if Spitfire 2.0 / Syborg / Sytron uses the same spoiler/strap?
Are these the right diameter to replace loose rivets on a LaSportiva Sideral 1.0 instep buckle? Anyone know someone who has done this successfully? Would steel pop rivets be a better choice?
Are replacement heel flaps for Titan Vario available? If I wanted to modify a pair of heel flaps to increase riser height, would I be able to replace them with stock parts later?
D'oh, I should have known that. As an aside, I'm super impressed with the options Kreuzspitze provides for adjustment plates. It makes lots of combinations possible with minimal redrilling.
