Offset Center Design
Offcet center design to reduce the load on body It is said that when we stand barefoot on level ground, we can stand with toes outward in a stable. It is same also on slope.
How about standing with skiboots? Usually when we stand with skiboots, we can stand with toes inward a little. And then the direction of knee flexion is the big toe.
So we must rotate the knee inward constantly in order to make skis parallel. And the direction of knee flexion is inward on parallel ski. Such a symptom was a corollary on human foot skeleton, physiology and skiboots design.
The traditional ski technique which rotates the legs has no problem for the characteristic of such skiboots, because the turn of ski by traditional ski technique was by rotatation the knee.
But such a performance of skiboots makes a disadvantage for the evolution of ski technique.
On the latest ski technique, the direction of ski is determined by leaning legs with both feet load in order to turn using effectively side curve of ski.
In such a skiing, the knee flex into the inside leads to power loss. And it creates heavy stress on the knees and legs by large resistance from snow surface.
It is important for skiboots that the knee flex is same direction as skis.
The ideal skiboots of REXXAM
The design of REXXAM to straighten the direction of knee flex to skis is the offset last.
It creates the situation which the foot is facing outward naturally in skiboots.
On the center of heel which the load is concentrated, it is designed as the last which the center line of foot is facing the outside.
In other words, it creates the situation in skiboots that the toe is facing outward slightly when standing naturally.
It is easy to make the skis parallel naturally just on wearing skiboots and to straighten the direction of knee flex.
And as the front of knee receives the resistance from snow surface, the stress on legs is reduced for a long time skiing.
