These stiff touring boots don't make concessions, so neither should you. The 2013 model is 20% stiffer and only 40g heavier, but their burliness can drive the fattest things you got. A unique alpine axial (semi-overlap with asymmetric hinge) on the front is designed for easy touring and easy entry. It also improves fit and forward flex, better than a regularly styled tongue and provides strong support on the downhill.
- Intuition Pro Flex RS liner.
- Predator RS instep strap allows increased stiffness in the tongue, and is easy to engage with gloves on.
- Zeus buckle locks the boots closed for increased power transfer.
- Asymmetric tongue provides precise power transmission and flex for downhill performance.
- Quickstep fittings and fitting indicator simplify the process of getting your boots on and off.
- Vibram® Cayman sole.

Forward lean affects a skiers balance. Some boots have a set forward lean angle; some are adjustable. Less lean places your knees in a more upright (almost standing) position, whereas more lean positions your knees forward over the ball of your feet.
|Thermoformable inner boot||Yes|
