Show Description

Blur the lines between Alpine Touring and freeskiing. These ultra-stiff boots are aggressive and responsive when cinched down, but flip the switch and the Powerlock Spyne mechanism provides a simple and efficient walk mode for human-powered ascents. The heat-mouldable shell and lining are highly customizable, providing a perfect fit. They're a great option for high-speed freeriders looking for a single boot to go anywhere on the mountain.

  • Powerlite polyurethane shell transfers power to your skis.
  • Softer TPU instep for easy entry and exit.
  • Pebax cuff provides consistent stiffness across a range of temperatures.
  • Shell and PowerFit Pro Tour liner can be thermo-moulded for personalized performance.
  • Powerlock Spyne mechanism provides 7 degrees of forward lean adjustability.
  • 4 aluminum micro-adjust buckles and wide cuff strap secure your foot in a snug fit.
  • GripWalk soles allow nearly-normal walking with a rockered design.
