smerdyakov Without the stiffener, I'd say the boot is about an 8 out of 10 and with it about and 8.5 or 9. These are really stiff boots, even with an articulated cuff. Way stiffer than the Burton Ion and Salomon F4.0 2012 (I hear that this year's is quite a bit stiffer).

lachyzee Thanks for the replies - if possible could you give a stiffness rating for tongue in versus tongue out?

This was my experience as well

Hey guys,

For anyone who owns this boot - what is the tongue stiffener like? I can't find any information on it on the net describing the way it works.

Is it more of a gimmick or is it actually useful? How much does it change the flex?

Thanks
