Any information available? Looking forward for your replies! mgco3 Amplid Milligram 163, Tour Operator 159 & LabCarbon 162, Phantom Alphas 14/15, Atomic Backland w/ Phantom LinkLevers https://mgco3.wordpress.com, https://www.instagram.com/conathanjumpman/ April 23, 2016 at 6:48 am #791488 jvosburgh 22 Posts I just received a pair of the Proclines. First impressions are really good. The biggest difference that I can see between the TLT6 and Procline is that the walk/ Ski (snowboard) mode lever is dedicated. That means no more trashed inside cuffs from TLT’s upper buckle staying open while ascending. The walk mode is incredibly walkable too, much more movement that TLT6. I have not been out on them as my guiding season just ended and I needed some chill time, that and its really warm. In snowboard mode I have not done any mods…yet, but upon inspection I can see that it would be quite easy to create forward flex. However with the upper buckle being only a tightening buckle and not a switch for ski mode I have found that its pretty darn soft stock with the upper buckle being set loose. Anyways Ill tune in again with more once I ride them… April 23, 2016 at 7:41 am #791491 Taylor 786 Posts By chance do you know the BSL for your size? Or, anyone seen specs anywhere? Wondering if they’ll be a good (compact, short) boot for big-footers. @sun_rocket April 23, 2016 at 7:54 am #791492 jvosburgh 22 Posts Mondo 28 TLT6 was a 307mm sole length and Procline 28.5 is 305mm. Didnt change my Phantom binding length.

October 22, 2016 at 3:15 am #795635 Guy Gaston 21 Posts I tried on the carbon version of this boot in the store yesterday. Definitely wider toe-box than my La sportiva siderals. I could not feel any of the upper cuff twisting ability.. Maybe the non carbon version is better.. The toe-welt seems scaringly small for bail bindings and auto-crampon compatibility. My slightly modified siderals feels softer in all directions, and by far lighter. My thoughts.. October 22, 2016 at 10:52 am #795641 mgco3 50 Posts Thanks for your replies. Today I had the chance to play around with the Procline in the store. And your concerns are definitely true… Guy Gaston wrote: I could not feel any of the upper cuff twisting ability..

I see no chance to change this behavior.. b) The toe-welt is too small, I would never ride these boots with my Phantoms…: Amplid Milligram 163, Tour Operator 159 & LabCarbon 162, Phantom Alphas 14/15, Atomic Backland w/ Phantom LinkLevers https://mgco3.wordpress.com, https://www.instagram.com/conathanjumpman/ October 27, 2016 at 9:54 am #795764 Kahti Ryan 48 Posts Damn! That’s a bummer! The points about not being flexible enough and locking out the lateral flex weren’t too bad, as I’d assumed the carbon cuff version would have been to stiff anyway, and I would have thought the walk mode flex would be too much to ride. I was looking forward to it for climbing purposes though. The small welt is a deal killer though it seems. Will be interested in what jvosburgh has to say on the matter, as he will no doubt have ridden them harder than most of us if he can get them to stay locked in to start with. Otherwise looks like another winter on fitwells 🙁 I was getting excited with these too. Maybe next year… November 6, 2016 at 5:14 pm #796067 96avs01 874 Posts 96avs01 wrote: @jvosburgh Any updates on the welt dimensions and riding with Phantoms?

I have access to nearly unlimited prototyping capabilities at KK, and I already have my modifications figured out. Once I have them modded I’ll let you guy know how well they flex for dynamic snowboarding. December 3, 2016 at 10:02 am #796873 96avs01 874 Posts @russman Any updates you can share on the Procline? Also, can you provide context (i.e. have you ridden any other hard boots). 165 Venture Divide/Spark Frankenburners/La Sportiva Spantiks 163W Jones Solution/Phantom Alphas/Dynafit TLT5s 162 Furberg Chris June 16, 2018 at 10:29 am #820059 CB 7 Posts It looks like next year’s redesigned Spark Dyno DH will have a thinner toe bail to accommodate the narrow toe well on the Procline. Slightly off topic, but does anyone know any reason the Salomon x-alp wouldn’t work just as well for hardbooting? Basically looks like the same boot.

Basically looks like the same boot. Arc’Teryx is owned by the Salomon Group, so I expect the boots are nearly identical. 165 Venture Divide/Spark Frankenburners/La Sportiva Spantiks 163W Jones Solution/Phantom Alphas/Dynafit TLT5s 162 Furberg Chris Viewing 14 posts - 1 through 14 (of 14 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
