Boot Modification - easy removal/ refitting of liner

Postby go_large_or_go_home » Fri Dec 20, 2019 5:15 am

I am sure that at some point, most of us have suffered from the same issue - pain in the ass removal and refitting of your liners..my liners are removed after each ski day to facilitate better drying. Despite warm boots, refitting the liner is always a chore that often ends up in skin being removed from my knuckles...i have tried dry silicone spray, but this seemed like a temp fix, and not great at best...

After some research, i discovered Anti Friction Tape - or UHMW Tape. This tape has a very low friction coefficient and has multiple uses - like the slip pads on the underside of your computer mouse..so why not use it in a ski boot?

Here is the finished mod:

I am very impressed - much less resistance and even better than dry silicone spray..

Here is a link for a similar type in the US:

Definitely worth the effort..
