seeing photos of Bode and other WC skiers in black (and not bright red)? Head boots this season leads me to wonder if the Raptors might be changing for 2009 model year? anyone know?

Twoboots:

I think there's a very big disconnect between production boots (even production race boots) and what you see on the World Cup.  I've even heard stories of people that actually ski in a boot that isn't their sponsor's and then paint it to make it look like its a sponsor's model with the sponsor's name on it.  Hard to draw any conclusions, I think, but may be a hint.  Maybe there will be a "Head Bode" signature model?

Agreed on the disconnect, but don't you think they'd paint Bode's boots? bright red for branding reasons?
Anyone one know if the 2009 Raptors are the same as this years? (sometimes WC guys are using boots that be available to public the following season).
