Classic WildSnow modshop crazy-ness. Take it as you will. First concept: Scott Cosmos III is VERY nice (available fall 2017). Second concept: Scott Cosmos III does not include cuff alignment. Third concept: Cuff alignment, as witnessed at Atomic FIS shop and as many of you readers know, is valid. Fourth concept: Atomic Backland and Hawx reversible cuff bushings will be available as a retail SKU. Fifth concept: We have the tooling. Sixth concept: We are bloggers. Enjoy.
Note, some boot models have built-in positive cuff angle, others do not. Before obsessing on tuning your cuff angle be sure to evaluate your actual needs. You might need nothing, or at the most a small amount of thickness added to one side of the liner cuff to match the curve of your tibia.
