    If I understand correctly the majority of the flex in an overlap boot comes from the deformation of the lower shell, so it seems logical to use PU there if you want to have a more 'alpine-like' flex, and use lighter, stiffer plastic in the cuff?

What's the advantage of the Grilamid in this case, extra stiffness at the same weight? Wasn't Lange trying to extol the virtues of the new XT3 going back to the PU ways for a better ski feel?

    Catalog says cuff is made from Lyftan Polypropolene. I've never heard of a PP being used.
