    Thanks for the tip. Looks great for thinner calves. I'm confused about the laces, as the Race FX looks to have the same system as the Tour Pros.

    I really like the heel riser flaps that cover the heel pins so you can tour and transition without turning the towers. I think the MTN has that as well. Kind of a necessity for me now.
