Description

Show Description

An alpine touring boot that offer fantastic downhill performance. The Synchro takes all the genius of La Sportiva’s Spectre 2.0 and improves both stiffness and flex. A 2-layer tongue locks together in ski mode but moves freely in touring mode. Carbon reinforcement behind the cuff ups the stiffness at 125 flex, so you get power and precision comparable to a downhill boot. The Pegasus Plus buckle locking system is easy to use and adjust in the field. A thermoformable liner adds warmth and comfort and a Vibram® outsole adds durable grip.

  • Shell has a compact lower made of ultra-lightweight nylon polymer Grilamid®.
  • Cuff is made of Pebax and supported by the carbon-reinforced Grilamid vertebra.
  • Overlap liner is thermoformable, and provides more warmth and comfort when charging hard.
  • 4 Pegasus Plus buckles provide a strong hold and are micro-adjustable for a perfect fit.
  • Booster Dynamic Power Strap® helps further increase the stiffness of the boot.
  • Rear spoiler provides fine-tuning of forward lean angle and foot position.
  • Double Power Grilamid tongue uses interlocking layers to promote flexibility when walking and stiffness when skiing.
  • Tongue position can be adjusted among three positions within a 4mm range, for greater comfort.
  • Compatible bindings are Tech, Alpine touring and TR2.
  • Flex Index of 125 provides great downhill performance.
  • Walk/ski mechanism is easy to operate, even with gloves on.
  • Vibram outsole has 2 compounds to blend grip and durability.
  • Speed step-in locator on sole allows fast positioning into bindings.

Forward lean
