I'll try that, and if it doesn't work ill just get the new boots too, I have to assume size 10 liner for rs-1 will fit like size 10 liner for strada, would be size change if they didn't, however, wouldn't be the first time that's happened (with other gear).

@alex38 I use them in Stradas, but I had RS-1s and they'll work fine in those too.

 

@richarddoane They're not cheap but I have nearly 600 sets on them and they are still in excellent condition. In fact they outlasted my last set of Strada shells and will likely be good for 1,000 sets.

 

Since the stock liners are made by Intuition for Radar, the decision is more about fit than price. The stock liners have a seam on the top edge of the tongue that bites my ankle bone, and they're a bit too thick in the forefoot for me. These Intuitions are not quite as thin as the thinnest liners Radar used a couple years back, and they are not as thick as the current liners. They were great right out of the box, then I heat molded them and they fit even better.

 

Stradas or RS-1s aren't as hard on liners as Goode, Reflex or other hard shells. They release fine and are very light weight. Be aware that they are a little taller than the stock liners, but I like the way they look and the extra height has yet to be an issue while skiing.

Got my pair of strada liners size 10 for my rs-1 shells size 10, they do seem tight in the shells in the living room.

 

Will heating them help that?

 

And does anyone have specs on heating them?

 

Should I keep in mind they are dry and brand new?

 

They also came with footbeds which seem to really tighten them up so I took em out.

@alex38 heat molding makes a big difference. There are varying opinions on this but I'm a big fan of putting a set of good orthotic liners like Superfeet in the bottom of the shell first, then do the heat moulding. Save the stock footbeds for when you sell them. For heat molding instructions, google "heat molding Intuition liners" on youtube. There's tons of good videos.
