Scarpa T2x vs new T1, T2 Eco

Anybody have any experience with both boots?

I'm skiing on older red T2x:


Old T2x

They are pretty beat and rockered.

The "cheapest" thing for me to do it go to a T1. (It ain't cheap, especially at this time of year.)

Any one have experience with both boots?

Seems like it might be a pretty big jump in stiffness, angle, 4 buckle.  Wondering what anyone thinks about that.

T1
Scarpa T1

Or... if you've skied the old T2x and the new ECO, how do they compare?

Try them on. It's not the stiffness, or the buckles or whatever. What will bother you is the cuff height. If you're cool with that, then I see no reason not to go bigger (I'd imagine you'd keep your T2xs for backcountry stuff).

Awesome info MC thanks, really exactly what I was looking for.  (I got some thick calves too.)

Inside Edge... the T1s are like $699.

I need new skis too. Kinda choosing...

Which would matter more, new skis or new boots.

I was thinking boots because I had so much fun on those Worths (which are new). My thought was the T1 could drive them better on groomers.

Now with some ice skating in my future... I'm thinking maybe it's skis instead.

Will try the boots on regardless.

IMO, boots are WAY more imprtant than skis. If you're not transferring energy efficiently to your ski, no matter what ski, you wont get the performance you're looking for.

Fresh tune on the boards, new boots, then rip it!!

Freeheeln... you on the new T1s?

Camp that is exactly what I was thinking... just had some major sticker shock on the boots.

How much do alpine boots cost?
