dolomite boots buy
I'm writing this for a friend of mine who is getting back into skiing. She just bought herself a pair of Dolomite CY3-X4 womens ski boots from eBay. However when she tries to try them on, they aren't opening up fully and thinks it's pertaining to the "Heel lock" setting on the rear of the boot.
Thanks! I have been in lurking mode for some time here on DCski. Still reading, keeping eye at things, but simply have ran out of daylight hours to sit down and do those thoughtful posts. I gotta admit, I miss doing those and giving the CH report as I did years ago! I'll have to share some photos I took about 12 years ago when current portions of CH were under construction and I would ride my bicycle on them on weekends.I'm still living in Lost City/Lost River area of Hardy County at the moment. Thankfully the family estate and neighboring properties haven't been condemned... yet. However we have lost all of our court cases against eminent domain as well as against the project of building a dam/lake here. The state entities that are pushing the project currently are out of money, but still pushing the project forward the best they can. Technically they could condemn the property today, without the funding to build the dam. But that would be a PR nightmare for them I assume, thus most likely they are getting their ducks in a row, so to speak.Snowboard wise, work has cut into that over the years. As well as the friends have all grown up, married, families, and they themselves never go anymore. I never even managed to go last year and haven't went yet this year. Although my friend who just got the boots, we are planning on taking my first trip to snowboard in Colorado in March. I do want to catch up on some runs hopefully at Whitetail or Wisp before then. Gotta knock the rust off. How have you been since we last chatted on here?Thanks for the info on the boots, I'll pass that along!Bradley
Not much on the net to specifically answer your question becasue this appears to be a pretty old pair of boots, but it appears that the second (from the top) cuff buckle activates the heel lock. Ergo, if the buckle is unbuckled, then the heel is not locked.
My guess is that you are simply dealing with normal boot stiffness. Pry the tongue open as far as you can and try to insert foot. You might want to try a boot dryer/warmer to allow he boots to more easily flex.
I'm on a pair of Lange 130 stiffness boots. When they are cold it may take me 1-2 minutes/boot to get my foot into the boot. When it's at or below zero, it's almost impossible to get them off after a day of skiing.. I grit my teeth, pry open the tongue and pull for all I'm worth -- making all sorts of funny faces and occassional grunting sounds.
Bob, You are not the only one with this "on/off" problem. I am trying to relearn sking in new flex 90 Solamon boots after having skied in stiff boots for many decades. Regardless, getting the darn boots on/off is a real struggle! But I have found that heating helps with "on", and really pulling the tongue forward while pushing down on the back of the helps tremendously with "out." Likewise pulling younger forward and pulling on the boot strap helps with the "on." Also sprinkling baby powder on sock can help.
This marketing-savvy Italian brand was among the first to aggressively promote shaped-ski boots with its CYB-X models. This season, look for more lift-a 15 mm Profile Lift Sole in three new CYB-X Carve models. The Varix race series adds a new base-level VZ model. The top two buckles on all Dolomite models are now macro-adjustable.
CYB-X SeriesSuper Carve $535/$600 w/ foam liner Free Carve $480 Sport Carve/L $435 CYB-X 4/L $400 CYB-X 3/L $350With their ebony-and-ivory cosmetic scheme and platform-shoe sole with see-through panel, the CYB-X Carve models are the most radical looking boots on the market. We tested the Super and Sport Carve models, which differ primarily in the quality and firmness of their liners.
Depending on your plans and type of hiking you want to undertake, you can opt for walking shoes with a good grip sole or full on hiking shoes that also protect your ankles. For highest versatility, opt for ankle high hiking boots and then bring a second pair of shoes such as runners, flats or walking sandals to give your feet a rest in lighter shoewear in the evening.
*725 According to the materials before the court, annual domestic sales of foam filled, custom fitted ski boots have grown in four years from almost nothing to approximately 400,000 pairs. Despite their patent, plaintiffs have not shared substantially in the market's growth which has redounded instead to the benefit of the movants and the class. The ski boots of movants' manufacture which reach the domestic market do so through exclusive distributors. In the case of Raichle, for example, title to the ski boots destined for the domestic market (about 25% of Raichle's total production) passes in Europe to the exclusive distributor. Raichle then ships the boots at the buyer's risk to the United States where they are channeled to retailers. Approximately .6% of Raichle's total production or about 1/50 of its American shipments ultimately are purchased by consumers in Utah. Extensive advertising in the domestic market emphasizes heavily the trademarks of each of the alien defendants. In the cases of Garmont, Henke, Kastinger, La Dolomite, Le Trappeur, Nordica, Humanic and Tecnica promotional materials are in part provided to the distributors by the manufacturers. In some instances, promotional ventures, such as sponsorships, are undertaken by the manufacturer. None of the defendants maintains an office, employs persons, contracts to sell goods, owns real estate or is qualified to do business in Utah. However, four of the defendants, Raichle, Koflach, Le Trappeur and Nordica, have dispatched executive officers to Utah where they have discussed and purchased plaintiffs' ski boot materials. Plaintiffs allege numerous other contacts between movants and this forum and propose extensive discovery proceedings to establish, if possible, these allegations. However, the materials presently before the court are sufficient to support in personam jurisdiction over each of the movants.
However, movants attack the good faith allegation of tortious conduct on the ground that, even assuming the validity of the patent and its infringement by those ski boots manufactured by them which have found their way into the forum, the actions of the movants themselves, at least insofar as properly alleged and supported by the plaintiffs, do not violate the infringement statute. See Marston v. Gant, supra. The statute, 35 U.S.C. 271, provides in part:
The United States patent laws protect only domestic markets. Thus the making, using or selling of a patented invention outside the United States is not proscribed unless it induces or contributes to a domestic infringement. Cf. Deepsouth Packing Co. v. Laitram Corp., 406 U.S. 518, 92 S. Ct. 1700, 32 L. Ed. 2d 273 (1972). Plaintiffs' patent covers both the design of an inner boot and the method of its injection with a molding substance. Defendants' ski boots arrive in the United States and in this district within the knowledge and contemplation of the defendants if not within their immediate control. Here the boots are injected. In the opinion of the court, 35 U. S.C. 271(c) prohibits the "sale", whether or not domestic, of an "apparatus for use in [the domestic practice of] a patented process," such as the ski boot injection process, where the seller knows the apparatus will reach domestic markets and there will be found "especially adapted for an infringement" of the patent. Therefore, plaintiffs' claim of tortious conduct is presently sufficient where foreign sale of the ski boots by the defendants, their purposeful domestic distribution within the knowledge of the defendants and their injection in this forum are properly alleged and supported. Such is the case. Furthermore, it appears that 35 U.S.C. 271 (b) and (c) were meant to confirm the previous principle of contributory infringement based upon aiding and abetting the direct infringer. Jones v. Radio Corp. of America, 131 F. Supp. 82, 83-84 (S.D.N.Y.1955). The foreign manufacture and sale of ski boots and their purposeful introduction into distribution channels leading to domestic markets where infringing sales occur would appear to be such an aiding and abetting. Cf. Fromberg, Inc. v. Thornhill, 315 F.2d 407, 411-412 (5th Cir. 1963). But cf. Marston v. Gant, supra, and Olin Mathieson Chemical Corp. v. Molins Organizations, Ltd., 261 F. Supp. 436 (E. D.Va.1966) (requiring the acts of inducement to occur within the forum but only in order to meet the special requirements of the Virginia long-arm statute). To conclude otherwise would be to sanction the foreign manufacture of patented devices for ultimate sale in the United States, a result in conflict with the statute's purpose. Cf. Deepsouth Packing Co. v. Laitram Corp., supra, 406 U.S. at 526-527, 92 S. Ct. 1700. Finally, 35 U.S.C. 271(a) might be invoked properly despite the apparent independence from the defendants of the domestic ski boot distributors upon the ground that the distributors generate domestic business which benefits the defendants and which establishes a quasiagency relationship thus tying the domestic sales to the defendants. See, e.g., Duple Motor Bodies, Ltd. v. Hollingsworth, 417 F.2d 231, 235 (9th Cir. 1969); SCM Corp. v. Brother International Corp., 316 F. Supp. 1328, 1335 (S. D.N.Y.1970). But see, e. g., Velandra v. Regie Nationale des Usines Renault, 336 F.2d 292, 297-298 (6th Cir. 1964). See generally, 39 Brooklyn L.Rev. 229, 234-39 *728 (1972); 5 Int.L. & Politics 575 (1972). Cf. Curtis Publishing Co. v. Cassel, 302 F.2d 132 (10th Cir. 1962); Teledyne Ryan Aeronautical Co. v. Montgomery Ward & Co., 326 F. Supp. 813, 818 (D.Colo.1971). In view of the proper allegations of tortious conduct, the court may examine the contacts of the defendants to the forum which are claimed to result from the tort. 041b061a72
