Lange world cup 130's for freeride?
I picked up a pair of Lange world cup 130's for $99 last night at the Evo barn sale in Seattle, but now I'm wondering if these effers are going to be too stiff for general freeriding, and hucking. I can flex them alright, but they're definitely a lot stiffer than my last boots (Lange Gx8). I'm 170, 5'10," with rugged features, in case you were wondering.
Am I going to be miserable skiing in these all day? I ski some backcountry, some park, but mostly off-piste in bounds.
I figured for $99 bucks they were worth a shot...
And feel free to JONG me for the dumb question

I assume the older darker blue ones? Not the "manly" light blue ones?
You can remove the 2 rear rivets on the back of the spine of the boot to make them softer, This is reversible so try it and see what the flex is like to you, You can always put them back in.
Also watch for shell cracks on the flex point on that boot, Newer ones are holding up great, older ones .... not so much.

I have the 120 and the 130, I like the 130 better, I even tour in it. I tend to like a stiffer boot for just about everything. Lange boots fit my foot perfect out of the box so... that's nice, and i am going to get the 150's later this season me 5'10" 160

just watch the shell fit, That liner was short stitched, making the boot feel VERY tight to start with. This is the same for comp 100 team, 100 ladies, 120, and 130, both the LF and MF fits
5-15mm shell fit is all you want

Since you seem to be an expert with these boots, should I try to bake them myself or should I just let a shop do that for me? How much will I fuck my boots up if I do it?

just ski em.
heating the liner, just speeds up the natural packout that the boot will do anyway. Nothing too magical really. Not that it is a bad thing, just not as key as marketing thinks.

I have these boots and love them for free skiing and racing. I'm 5'11" 150# and did take the rear screws out of the cuff so I could flex them a bit. One of mine did crack at the flex point like mntlion said, but I caught it early and drilled a hole at the end of the crack at the beginning of last season and have skied 60 more days on them with out it extending any further.Sucks at internets
