  • Best Ski boots to purchase for Receptor Bindings

    Hi im new to Skiboarding, I recently got the Receptor non realease bindings and I would like to know what kind of ski boots go best with the bindings?, i.e brand, style etc.

    Since boots require a very personal fit, specific models cannot really be recommended i.e. I cannot even step into Scarpa boots or the SPX model from Salomon. What can be recommended is to look for specific groupings of boots. As such for skiboarding what works are boots that are more upright and of a softer flex - you really don't need 130 flex boots of downhill racing boots. Look for Freestyle (park) boots or Free-riring/All terrain boots. Depending on your weight typically a 90-110 flex should do. (Females can even go for a softer flex if need be).

    If you go armed with that information into a boot fitter you can actually get something that works really well. Custom footbeds etc. can be really helpful.

    Most boots will work with Receptopr unless the toe piece on the boot is really, really wide.

      The best boot for the binding ?
      I would say find the best boot that fits you. The receptor works with virtual every boot. I’m not sure if they were made to fit one boot over another.

            Like ysb stated you don’t need a downhill racing boot, most of us prefer a boot that you stand up a little more straight. I know many don’t want a high stiffness boot and want a bit softer. I have 2 different boots, one is a 100 flex with the custom boot liners and the other is a full tilt descant 8. It’s about size bigger then the other and a wider toe box. I like the 2 different boots for when I’m doing many days in a row of skiing.

              IMHO there seems to be 2 basic categories of boots, performance fit and comfort fit. I can't wear performance fit boots for even 10 seconds. I have a plate and screws in my leg right at the boot cuff and performance fit boots fit so tight they are like little iron maiden torture devices. I have to search out comfort fit boots. My current boots are Head mid-entry boots.

                Some ski boots activate the "walk mode" with a button on the heel that has to be depressed, making them very hard to use with a non release binding.
                Just these, nothing else !

                  Many new models have now "gripwalk" soles, not sure if this would be a half issue with non-release bindings, haven't looked into it, if you plan on such soles I would check this. Worst case you would need to buy extra regular soles, that's why I'm saying it's not a show stopper.
