Tour in comfort, and ski with confidence. These boots are rigged for backcountry escapades. Light and stiff, while flexible and smooth, the Backland Carbon boots are backcountry changlings. With an incredible 74 degrees of mobility, skinning and bootpacking isn't a suffer-fest. Plus you can remove the tongues for even more comfort on the way up, and slide them back in for the ride back down. Built on a rigid carbon backbone, they offer powerful performance to skiers who are willing to earn it.
