Product details

The materials used represent the state-of-the-art technology of plastic materials combined with carbon and glass fibres, taking into consideration the environmental impacts by using bio-compatible material Pebax® Bio Based Rnew 1100. Each construction component allows a perfect transmission of precision and power to the ski, combined with high durability and incredible lightweight. The heart of the boot is the shell with an asymmetrical V-SHAPE ™ cuff closure that combines high mobility with a very intuitive fit: easy to put on, position the boot in walk mode and open the front hooks. The ski mountaineer will appreciate the wider fit and the extremely simple closure system of the cuffs, which automatically bring the front tab into place. The inner liner in Ultralon® and the Vibram® V-Lug high durability sole, create a cutting-edge product.

  • Pebax® Shell: comfortable and high-performance shell, made of eco-friendly material deriving from Pebax® Bio Based Rnew 1100 castor oil seeds. Very high resistance to low temperatures and excellent flexibility. ISO standard geometries
  • V-SHAPE™ Pebax® Cuff: Cuff in Pebax® Bio Based Rnew 1100 with exceptional 63 ° excursion: allows for maximum mobility to move quickly and safely in any situation. Asymmetrical closure which, thanks to the particular "scissor" construction geometry and the large entrance volumes, makes fitting operations extremely fast and intuitive. For an easy and immediate fit, simply place the boot in walk mode and open the front hooks, the boot is now ready to be put on. Cuffs loaded with carbon (FLEX 130)
  • EZ Flex™ Double Tongue: Pebax® tongue made of two elements (upper and lower) of two different types of stiffness, in order to combine maximum mobility in walk mode and perfect power transmission in ski mode
  • V-Guard Interfaces™: abrasion-resistant reinforcement zones made of materials derived from the world of alpine skiing placed on the heel and toe for maximum durability in the attachment areas
  • WarmSole insert: insulating polyurethane insole. Avoids direct contact of the foot with the shell thus, increasing warmth
  • EZ-LOCK Closure System™: rear rotating Ski / Walk system made of Ergal and Technopolymer, ensures maximum closing speed and avoids exposure of mechanical parts to accidental shocks and stresses
  • TWIN-PWR™: double band with upper elastic strap, combines a perfect closure with a reactive energy return while skiing, ensuring comfort and precision on downhill
  • Compact Buckle™: patented lever closure system that keeps the lever adherent to the shell in walk mode, reducing external volumes, distributing tension evenly and giving maximum freedom of movement without the exposed parts of the shell getting in the way of the action of the ski mountaineer
  • Double Release™: compact and precise lower closure derived from the "Spider Buckle Evo" technical solution that allows a perfect distribution of tension on the median part of the instep by acting on the high resistance Adjustable Cable™, which is anchored directly to the axes studs thus, reducing the deformation of the shell in the descent phases
  • Vibram® V-LUGS ™ Sole: outsole that complies with the ISO UNI EN 9523 standard with anti-abrasion heel / toe inserts and exceptional durability
  • S4 Evo binding plate: facilitates binding insert due to a specially designed shape
  • Vanguard LINER: thermoformable liner specially designed to work in synergy with the shell and cuff: it allows an ergonomic and enveloping fit and optimal comfort. Malleolus protection due to slots created with materials of differentiated thickness and the use of Ultralon® Performance Foam material. It is designed for the addition of a lace to further facilitate the customization of the internal volumes
  • Ortholite® Hybrid insole: removable insole in recycled polyurethane. High comfort and perfect thermal insulation
