Show Description

Stiff boots for driving big skis. These burly alpine touring boots offer fantastic downhill performance thanks to a one-two punch of power and precision. 130 Flex uses a simple, yet effective tongue with 2 layers that lock into one another in ski mode and move freely when in tour mode. The carbon reinforced cuff adds even more stiffness for maximum power transfer.

  • Shell has a compact lower made of ultra-lightweight Pebax.
  • V-shaped cuff is made of eco-friendly Pebax Rnew with carbon infusion.
  • Ultralon foam liner is thermoformable and provides more warmth and comfort when charging hard.
  • 4 EZ-Tech aluminum buckles are micro-adjustable for a perfect fit.
  • Power Strap® helps further increase the stiffness of the boot.
  • EZ Flex double tongue uses interlocking layers to promote flexibility when walking and stiffness when skiing.
  • 63° range of motion for climbing and 12-14° of forward lean for skiing.
  • Ski/Walk mechanism is easy to operate, even with gloves on.
  • Vibram V-lug soles blend grip and durability.

Flex index
