With a carbon backbone and friction-free, smooth pivoting joints, these boots are rigged for backcountry escapades. The liners are warm and perforated so they breathe during the day and dry out overnight. The ski/walk mechanism frees the cuff from the shell for an incredible 74 degrees of mobility, so hiking isn't a chore. Remove the tongues for even more comfort on the way up, and slide them back in (or use the harder downhill tongue) for performance on the ride back down.
- Shell and cuff are made of Grilamid (plastic).
- Carbon spine adds responsiveness and power transmission while maintaining sensitivity at the front of the boot.
- 98mm last has a somewhat narrow fit.
- Quick click tongue allows you to switch from no tongue for climbing to a supportive tongue for skiing. Includes a hard tongue for superior downhill performance.
- Breathable Platinum liner is made of lightweight Ultralon foam that is thermo-mouldable and hand washable. Perforations allow them to dry overnight.
- Liner has supportive zones in calf, ankle and tongue for great downhill performance.
- 2.0 ski/walk mechanism gives you 74-degree range of motion for climbing and 13-15 degrees of forward lean for skiing.
- Frictionless pivot uses polymer bushings to provide natural movement on ascents.
- 3-point cross lace on forefoot wraps and holds your foot securely.
- 2 aluminum buckles and a 30mm power strap.
- Flat bottomed chassis.
- Rockered rubber sole.
- Compatible with tech bindings only.
The boot and binding systems must match for best performance and safe use.
|Lower shell material||Grilamid|

Alpine Touring: with tread; compatible with DIN touring bindings. Alpine Touring Tech (Tech): with tread; compatible with G3 Onyx and Dynafit. Downhill: without tread; compatible with freeride/downhill bindings.
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.
Range of motion
The range of motion of the boot when in hike mode.
The width of the interior of the boot shell across the widest part of the forefoot.
|Thermoformable inner boot||Yes|
A mechanism that allows to release the boot cuff to switch to tour mode.
