  • These instructions apply to liners that can be heat molded in a convection oven, such as the Raichle/DeeLuxe Thermoflex liners or Intuition heat-moldable liners. Do not use these instructions for liners that are meant to be hose-heated, such as Raichle Thermofit liners, or the liners that come with Head boots. The newer Virus UPZ boots can be heat-molded, but not the older UPZ boots.

    Verify that the boots have a thermoflex liner, not a thermofit liner. Thermofit liners require a special fitting that can't be done at home; thermoflex liners can be molded using a conventional oven.

  • It's not a good idea to heat mold Thermoflex liners without a footbed. If you mold the liners without a footbed, the liner is not going to provide enough rigidity for your foot, and your foot is likely to twist inside the liner.

    Some Vans & Raichle snowboard boots come with Intuition liners in them. I bought a used pair on ebay for $10, removed the liner, baked it, and put them in my Invernos. They are well over a pound lighter now and seem quite warm.

    I don't know Aveolite liners but I found that thermoflex liners are great and warm but they don't come with laces so they aren't as tight I am not sure if aveolite liners are that way to.. but I have also noticed the the thermoflex pack out quicker then normal liners. I hope this helps




    I agree, I wish thermoflex had laces. But theoretically if they're fitted correctly their shouldn't be any extra slop, since they "mold" exactly to the shape of your foot and boot. They do pack out, but in recent years thermoflex has changed to a more of a closed cell foam material that taked longer to pack out then they used to. Also, if they do pack out they can be re-fitted whith out buying new ones to restore them to their former shape. They should be fitted wearing a thin liner sock or even no sock at all. That way when they do start to pack out a bit you can increase your foot volume by wearing a thicker sock over your liner sock.

    B. After my flex was perfect, I had footbeds and custom Thermoflex liners installed. When molding the liners, I added extra material in front of my toes, so my toes wouldn’t hit while kicking steps, and they’d stay warmer. Take care when picking liners that you use ones with dense foam. AT boots are softer than alpine boots, so too soft a liner will feel like skiing with your feet in plastic bags full of Jell-O…
