Did you try this?
Seems like it would work to me, that middle strip gets in the way of the cap from hugging the toe of the boot, which could be why they slip if not just right.
I may cut it on my 2011 cartels, but would be nice to hear from someone who has done so and felt an improvement / no problems afterwards.
Hmmm, it seems from what people are saying the 2012 malativas are a bit to significantly softer. I may just stay with the cartels and get the 2013s.
Anyone have experience with the 2013 cartels?
New tech? changes in flex? What does it say in your catalog Leo?
I cut it, moved the strap to the furthest back positions and maxed out the lengths at the same time and it worked for me, but i'm not sure which one (or all) actually solved the slipping. It definitely wont cause any long term issues by cutting the rubber middle... it's just a little difficult to do it cleanly so as to make it look like it wasn't cut in the first place.
