Atomic Backland Alpine Touring Boot Atomic Backland Alpine Touring Boot
No, you don't need to make an emergency eye appointment to get your vision checked--the boots that you are now viewing are in fact made by Atomic. You might not have expected a boot of this build to come from Atomic, but the world is full of wonderful surprises and the Atomic Backland Alpine Touring Boot is definitely one of them. Although not as light as its carbon brethren in the Backland line, this Grilamid option comes at a clean price and is still exceptionally light with a stiff feel that will charge on the descent.The Backland comes with a 98mm last, making it a true low-volume touring boot. Borrowing technologies from Atomic's more dedicated alpine boots, the Backlands feature Atomic's Memory Fit shell technology, which allows the shell and cuff to be custom fit to the skier's feet to ensure top-shelf comfort and performance. One of the first things you might notice about the backland is the external Free/Lock 2. 0 walk mode, which eliminates the chance of things going haywire on really cold days. Atomic didn't cut any corners on the liners. The Platinum liner is supportive through the calf, ankle, and tongue and is heat-moldable. Their breathable bottom keeps feet cool on the up, as well as warm and dry on the descent, and they can be washed, so you give them a proper cleaning before you take them on that hut trip. The boots feature a ridiculous 74-degree cuff rotation, a frictionless pivot, and a removable tongue for a feel more akin to a pair of hiking boots than ski boots. When it is time to buckle these boots down for the descent, throw the Quick Click tongue in, fasten down the two aluminum buckles and cross lace system, then quickly lock the walk lever down for a solid and secure feel for the descent.

Atomic Backland Carbon Alpine Touring Boot Atomic Backland Carbon Alpine Touring Boot
While some companies dip a toe into the shallow end of the ski-touring pool to see how they like the temperature, Atomic's gone and tossed a giant diving-board cannonball into the deep end with the Backland Carbon Alpine Touring Boot. This is no alpine boot outfitted with tech fittings; it's a seriously lightweight (under three pounds per boot), seriously mobile (74 staggering degrees of cuff rotation), and seriously comfortable (with a heat-moldable shell and liner) touring boot that can more than hold its own against the skimo grandfathers from more traditional backcountry companies. Starting from the inside out, Atomic designed the Backland to be fully customizable to reduce blisters and irritation, offer a more precise fit, and make long days easier and more enjoyable. The Backland Platinum heat-moldable liner weighs just eight ounces, courtesy of warm Ultralon foam, and has support zones in the calf, ankle, and tongue to improve downhill performance. It also employs a flex zone by the Achilles tendon for a smoother uphill stride and has a lace-up closure so you can unbuckle your boots without slopping around in the liner. Outside of the liner, Atomic integrated a Quick Click interchangeable tongue system, (the Backland comes with the stiffer tongue, but a softer one is available), so you can easily snap the tongue off for the ascent and back on for more support when it's time to ski. Like the liner, the stiff and light carbon-reinforced Grilamid Memory Fit shell is heat-moldable, so you can dial up a precise, comfortable fit that increases comfort on the way up and confidence on the way down. The shell and cuff are joined on the sides with Atomic's Frictionless Pivot system for smooth rotation (the pivot is also threaded for easy replacement and service), and in the back with the carbon spine, which locks into rocks-solid place with the Free/Lock 2. 0 ski. hike lever to eliminte fore and aft movement. When your foot's in the boot, lock down the two aluminum ...

Atomic Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot Atomic Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot
Being the lightest offering in Atomic's all-new line of touring-specific boots, the Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot is for the skier looking to shave ounces from their backcountry setup, while retaining much of the same downhill performance that can be found on stiffer and heavier options in the Backland line. Geared toward the lighter-is-better, more rando-focused crowd, the Backland Carbon Light weighs a feathery 2lb 3oz (987g) per boot in a 27. 5 shell size and comes equipped with a soft tongue to further reduce weight.The shell is made from a heat-moldable Grilamid material and has a 98mm last, making it a true low-volume boot. The Memory Fit shell can be customized to accommodate wider feet and feet that require more volume in the instep. The Platinum Liner can also be customized for a more precise and comfortable fit. Unique to all Backland boots is the washable liner that can be cleaned after consecutive days on the mountain. At first glance, the most notable feature on the Backland is the simple and burly Free/Lock 2. 0 walk mode, which consists of an easily engaged and disengaged lever, that once locked in, remains fully rigid during the descent due to a metal-on-metal connection, which is all external, preventing icing and wear over time. As mentioned, the Carbon Light comes equipped with a soft tongue that can be left in when touring and skiing, or left out altogether to save weight. The addition of the soft tongue will add stiffness to the boot, which is punctuated by the carbon spine that is not only lightweight, but stiff and powerful for the descent.

Black Diamond Factor Mx 130 Alpine Touring Boot - Men's Black Diamond Factor Mx 130 Alpine Touring Boot - Men's
It's not just the hippies. Freeride skiers with their hair ablaze love the freshies, too, so Black Diamond brings you the brand-new Factor Mx 130 Men's Alpine Touring Boot, a hard-driving freeride boot that's light and nimble enough for climbing yet stiff and strong for bombing downhills.

Because the ski boot is the most personal of ski gear, the Factor Mx offers you two customization features: a heat-moldable Power liner and interchangeable sole blocks. The liner hugs your every foot curve for maximum energy efficiency and comfort, and you can swap from DIN-compatible sole blocks for a day at the resort to AT/Tech-compatible for a dawn-patrol powder mission. The Triax Pro frame and overlap construction mean smooth yet rigid forward flex for high performance on the descent and ascent. Capable in-resort, hucking meat and stomping it, yet equipped for backcountry excursions for those sick lines calling your name, the Factor gives you that added climbing convenience without compromise.

Light on weight and heavy on freeride performance, Dalbello's Lupo Carbon T. I. Ski Boot is a match made in heaven for any aggressive backcountry tourer. It's incredible that this backcountry boot can provide such a stiff flex of 130 and still allow a massive 67-degree cuff rotation in walk mode. That's because Dalbello equipped it with a removable tongue and clip at the heel that provide a natural heel motion while skinning while ensuring an aggressive performance on the downhill.Like all Dalbello's top models, the Lupo Carbon T. I. Ski Boot features a Cabrio construction that uses three separate pieces (tongue, cuff, and shell) to give the boot a smoother power transmission, a dynamic rebound, and excellent shock absorption. The shell also features Dalbello's wide Cuff Hyperband buckle that offers more comfort and less friction, while the Inverted forefoot buckle prevents breaking and bending like traditional buckles on the side usually do.Inside the boot, Dalbello inserted a thermo-moldable My Fit Light liner that conforms to your foot after a heating process and stays light and flexible enough to keep you skinning comfortably. Underfoot, the boot's Xtra Grip rubber toe and heel lugs stay solid when you're bootpacking up rocky summits, and you can interchange them with alpine DIN or touring soles for versatility in or out of the resort.

Dynafit TLT6 Mountain CR Ski Boot - Women's Dynafit TLT6 Mountain CR Ski Boot - Women's
The Dynafit Women's TLT6 Mountain CR Ski Boot may look all cute and nice, but it was built for demanding ascents and mind-bending descents.

Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Alpine Touring Boot Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Alpine Touring Boot
Touring-specific boots are a big deal nowadays, and while they're markedly better than they were five or six years ago, the improvement doesn't show many signs of slowing down. Fischer's Transalp Vacuum TS Alpine Touring Boot takes tech boots to the next level with its heat-moldable shell, which allows you to dial in a personalized fit that even grinding, punching, and padding won't give you. Simply heat the shell up, just like you would a liner, stick it on, buckle it up, and let it cool--the Vacu-Plast material will expand and then contract to the shape of your foot, improving fit, performance, and comfort. Coupled with the moldable lace-up liner (the TS uses a Thermotour liner with Ultralon foam, which makes it cushier but a few ounces heavier than the TS Lite). This gives the Transalp a level of unprecedented customization, so you can kiss hotspots, slop, and pain goodbye for good. Of course, all the fit technology in the world won't make a good boot all on its lonesome, so Fischer made sure the rest of the Transalp was on point, too. The shell is designed to complement the position of your feet (Fischer calls its ergonomic design features V-Position and On-Center Position), for increased control and comfort, and it has a ski/walk lever that offers a killer 53 degrees of fore-aft rotation for easy skinning and bootpacking. Three X-Lite aluminum buckles pull your foot into the shell without pinching, and a 40mm Touring power strap beefs up the relatively mild 115 flex (Fischer doesn't actually assign flexes to their boots, so 115 has become the accepted estimate), so the boots don't get overwhelmed if you're driving wider skis. An adjustable rear spoiler lets you play with the Transalp's 13-degree forward lean, and a grippy Vibram sole makes ice walking, rock scrambling, and parking lot detours a little bit less sketchy.

Fischer Travers Carbon Alpine Touring Boot Fischer Travers Carbon Alpine Touring Boot
While Fischer's Travers Carbon Alpine Touring Boot may appear as though it gleans its name from the word "traverse," it's in fact a blend of the word "versatile" and "Transalp," which happens to be the name of Fischer's famed and dependable skimo planks. So, as its verbal denomination suggests, the Travers is Fischer's latest and greatest endeavor into the ski mountaineering and alpine touring world. Weighing in at just over four pounds a pair, the Travers boasts an incredibly lightweight and pliable construction thanks to its Grilamid and carbon exterior, while the carbon fiber sheath in the sole assures rigidity and stiffness akin to your favorite alpine boot. Additionally, the Travers features singular power strap that consists of a ratchet and hook-and-loop combination as to provide a fine-tuned fit, and the Boa lacing system assures a personalized, pressure-free fit and feel, which is an especially welcomed attribute if you've ever had a pair of ill-fitting boots. More importantly, though, is the boot's free-pivoting cuff system that allows for an unobstructed range of motion, specifically 80-degrees worth, and when combined with the easy-to-use walk mode, you're able to glide up the skin track in no time. However, when encountering roly-poly or more technical skin tracks, cinch the down the cuff and lock-off the walk mode for more supportive, secure fit. Now, you might be wondering how Fischer planned on keeping the Palau moldable liner dry and comfortable, so grab your popcorn. Since the cuff and lower portion of the boot don't overlap at the front of the boot or heel, Fischer outfitted the Travers with a waterproof gaiter that fixes to the shell's lower portion and stretches just about to the top of the cuff. This gaiter is not only dexterous, but easily fends off snow build up and sweat alike. So whether you're searching for a lightweight and dependable ski mountaineering boot or alpine touring boot, the Travers has made its grand entrance and ensur...

K2 Pinnacle 130 Alpine Touring Boot - Men's K2 Pinnacle 130 Alpine Touring Boot - Men's
Unwilling to sacrifice performance on the descent, you've resisted the allure of boots with a walk mode for years, but your legs have paid the price on the skintrack, you've been passed more than a few times, and been forced to ski sloppy seconds when you could have cut a totally clean line down the mountain. If any, or all, of this sounds familiar, you'd do well to consider the K2 Men's Pinnacle 130 Alpine Touring Boot. K2 designed the Pinnacle with a stiff flex and Synchro Interlock walk mode, which forgoes bolts between the cuff and shell (a connection prone to compromise the flex of the boot) by implementing an internal wedge that locks the cuff and shell together for zero play once locked into ski mode for a stiff and powerful feel on the descent.Where the Pinnacle 130 really shines, though, is with the versatile sole that is compatible with tech, frame touring, and traditional alpine bindings. You can use 'em all without having to switch out the outsole, although an aggressively lugged Vibram sole can be purchased separately, if you're planning on spending a lot of time on icy bootpacks and hiking rocky, wind-blown ridge lines. The shell of the Pinnacle is fitted with three buckles and a 45mm power strap with K2's Power-Buckle for a secure closure, and the carbon-infused Powerfuse Spyne works to keep the boot stiff and further reduce give between the cuff and shell for solid freeride performance whether you're ripping big lines inbounds, or sessioning your favorite backcountry stashes.

K2 Pinnacle 130 LV Alpine Touring Boot - Men's K2 Pinnacle 130 LV Alpine Touring Boot - Men's
Your days of squeezing into a skin suit and cramming your feet into a pair of plugged race boots may be long gone, but that doesn't mean you want to ski a couple of rando noodles when you venture into the backcountry. K2 understands your plight, so it built the Men's Pinnacle 130 LV Alpine Touring Boots with a stiff 130 flex, a tech- and alpine-compatible sole, and a walk mode that becomes completely rigid once you're ready to ski your line. This low volume version of the Pinnacle 130 has a narrow 97mm last, but maintains all the uphill capabilities as its 100mm last cousin.The Pinnacle 130 is unique in its ability to switch between alpine, tech, and alpine touring bindings in a single day, without having to ever switch out the soles. Integrated tech fittings let you step into your lightweight touring bindings when you're headed out on a long tour, while the included DIN-compatible soles offer consistent and reliable release values with your go-to alpine bindings when you plan on spending your day shredding the resort. The Pinnacle also stands apart from traditional touring boots thanks to its Synchro Interlock ski/walk mode, which utilizes an interlocking design instead of a bolt or hinge, reducing play between the shell and cuff once the boot is locked into ski mode. Once in walk mode, the Synchro Interlock system offers plenty of cuff rotation to access those more hard-to-access backcountry lines and long bootpacks inbounds. The Pinnacles comes with a thermo-moldable Intuition liner and are fitted with DIN compatible TPR soles; lugged Vibram soles are sold separately, and can be attached if you're planning on hiking wind-hammered ridge lines where the extra traction would be more than nice.

When you require a lightweight, precise, and powerful boot for your next ski-mountaineering adventure, look no further than the Sideral 2. 0 Alpine Touring Boot from La Sportiva. The Sideral is made with a Grilamid shell that is extremely lightweight. To help maintain the lightness but improve power and skiability, La Sportiva added carbon fiber reinforcements throughout the cuff of the boot and a Pebax tongue with Vertebra Technology for a smooth, consistent, and substantial flex. Since long days in boots tend to be the norm in the mountains, a thermo-moldable EZ Thermo Tour liner mitigates any chafing or hot spots before they become a problem. To keep your feet from freezing during alternating belay pitches, La Sportiva put in a removable PU WarmSole insert that prevents the loss of heat through the bottom of the boot. When speed matters, you'll appreciate the ease of the Fast-Lock System and the QuickBuckle upper that allows you to switch from ski to walk mode with the flick of a switch. When in walk mode, these boots provide a hefty 68-degree cuff rotation, perfect for sections of more technical climbing. A LazerGrip Outsole with dual-density rubber positions climbing rubber where you need it for grip, and softer, shock-absorbing rubber under your heel and ball of your foot to allow you to go for longer.

Look to La Sportiva's Spitfire Alpine Touring Ski Boot for your all-around ski mountaineering and speed touring pursuits. The Spitfire is surprisingly stiff on the downhill, considering how flexible and light it feels on the uphill. The shell consists of a low-profile Grilamid outer for ultralight durability, and features Vertebra Technology, which employs a carbon-reinforced polymer cuff to keep the boot stiff for the descent. The cuff also gives the Spitfire a killer 68 degree range of motion, resulting in plenty of agility while climbing on ice and rock or skinning up steep switchbacks. La Sportiva also equipped the Spitfire with a Speedfire closure system that works with the Cam Closure System's walk mode for a quick release when you switch from walk to ski mode. The QuickBuckle and EZ Cable ensure a secure fit while skiing that doesn't inhibit the boot's flexibility on the hike up. Inside the boot, you have a removable SkiMo thermo-moldable liner and WarmSole insert, which make the Spitfire one of the warmest two-buckle boots on the market. Despite a relatively wide last, a 2BT Tech Heel minimizes the volume around your heel for a precise fit, too, because nothing's worse than slopping around inside your boot when you're trying to lay down aggressive turns in mixed snow.

Salomon MTN Explore Ski Boot Salomon MTN Explore Ski Boot
The popularity and attendant quality of touring boots has exploded in the last three years; virtually every manufacturer is offering a touring-specific boot these days, and they all claim to be the most comfortable, most versatile, and best to ski. We can't say for sure who's right, but we can say that Salomon's been at the forefront of this movement from day one, beginning with its backcountry-capable Quest lineup. The new MTN Exlore Boot is a different animal than the Quest, though. It's designed primarily for real backcountry use, not short expeditions out of bounds, and has a lightweight, highly mobile construction to reflect that. The shell is made from lightweight Grilamid and the cuff from flexible Touring polypropylene, and the two are joined together using Salomon's oversized pivot, which provides a stable connection that's ideal for driving wider skis without slop or unnecessary flex. When you're touring, though, it's the front-to-back movement that's most essential. The Explore has a flex rating of 110--stiff but not crazy--and a Surelock ski/walk switch with Motion Flex technology, which gives the cuff a killer 63 degrees of rotation, so you can skin and bootpack like you're wearing a pair of hiking boots. When you lock the switch into ski mode, a carbon fiber spine forms a bomproof connection between the shell and the cuff, so you can use every millimeter of flex without worrying about slop or lack of precision. The power strap lets you cinch things down tight for a highly responsive fit, and the reversed instep buckle pulls your heel back into the pocket and pushes your foot down into the bootboard for top-shelf control. Heat-moldable liners are standard these days, and the Explore's Ultralight CF 3D liner doesn't disapppoint. It conforms easily to the lumps and bumps of your feet, has a flex zone around the ankle and Achilles for smooth striding, and features several loops that are great if you're a lace-up kind of guy. Salomon also designed shell an.

Salomon MTN Lab Ski Boot Salomon MTN Lab Ski Boot
After skinning a few thousand vertical feet, wallowing up apowder-filled couloir, or navigating a wind-scoured ridge, it's reassuring toknow that your boots will deliver the power and security necessary to actuallyski your line well. And while there are plenty of AT boots out there that willfeel more like a pair of hiking boots during the ascent, it's still relativelytough to find a pair of AT boots that will deliver the stiffness that hard-chargingskiers need when skiing aggressively in steep terrain, making sweeping turnsdown wind-buffed bowls, or slashing powder turns in the trees on a storm day.Designed with a 120 flex, impressive 47-degree cuff rotation, and a weight wellbelow that what you'd expect from a stiff AT boot, the Salomon MTN Lab is quicklyearning the reputation as a game changer due to its ability to travelefficiently in the backcountry and crush big descents in challengingconditions. As touring boots have become increasingly more specializedthe last few seasons, the industry seems to be asking the average backcountryskier to either sacrifice uphill efficiency for power on the descent (or viceversa) or invest in a quiver of boots to match the different backcountryobjectives and conditions they'll encounter throughout a season. If having acloset full of AT boots doesn't necessarily fit in your shoestring budget toski upwards of 100 days a year, then consider the MTN Lab your quiver-of-onebackountry boot. Its commanding flex and downhill-focused design puts it at thetop of Salomon's MTN line, but its generous 47-degree walk mode, rockered sole,and tech inserts make it a more efficient backcountry tool than any of itspredecessors from Salomon's Quest BC line. If all the uphill capabilities ofthe MTN Lab sound great, but the boot's downhill prowess sounds overkill forthe kind of skiing that you do, then the MTN Explore might be the better optionfrom Salomon's MTN line. Simply put, the MTN Explore has a more approachable110 ...

Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot
Fresh from our friends on Alpha Centauri (sick mountains there, check 'em out if you haven't), the Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot splits the difference between full-blown rando racing boot and hardcore tourer, with a nylon/carbon shell and cuff that are plenty light enough to crush the skin track while still handling their business on steep faces and in shotgun couloirs. The Alien's most distinguishing feature is the fit. Not many boots can boast a micro-adjustable Boa closure system, but the Alien uses it to secure the foot smoothly and evenly, completely eliminating pressure points and dead spots. Your feet will also dig the HRP Intuition Liner, which is instantly comfortable and offers superb touring performance in any conditions, as well as the UFO Vibram Sole (also recently received from our space friends) which cushions shocks and provides top-notch traction in all kinds of terrain. Of course, what's most important about a lightweight, race-bred touring boot is its uphill performance. The Alien has a 2-piece construction that locks into ski mode and opens with a single A-Light buckle, providing 60 degrees of uphill-touring power and variable degrees of forward lean between 9 and 13 degrees for the way down. When you're locked in ski mode, the Alien's Propulsion Tech System ensures that the cuff remains stiff, giving you all the power and edge grip you need to handle the steep and icy sections that are part of every serious ski descent. Scarpa also gave the Alien a Quick Step-In system, which uses indicators and self-guiding notches to make it easy to step into your tech bindings, even in snowy spots.

Scarpa F1 Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa F1 Alpine Touring Boot
You've seen one lightweight touring boot, you've seen 'em all, right' Right' Err, wrong. That used to be pretty much the case--maybe a little extra carbon here or some added stiffness there--but Scarpa's F1 Alpine Touring Boot, while still recognizably a ski boot, has some tech wizardry that's not so ordinary. The cuff closes via a powerful FBC fast-buckle closure powerstrap, letting you get every ounce of power out of the 95 flex, and a Carbon Core insert and X-Cage EVO cuff structure make the F1 ski more like the burlier Maestrale while keeping the weight in Alien territory. Add in the 62 degrees of cuff rotation for buttery smooth skinning, and you've got one fly pair of backcountry kicks.A smooth-flexing Pebax tongue and HPA cuff and shell cinch around your foot with the same BOA ratchet-closure system found in the ultralight Alien, giving you a smooth, pinch-free fit without the need for heavy buckles. What's more, you can fine-tune to the F1 to your stance thanks to the 20-22 degree adjustable forward lean. The stock Intuition liner (which has a skinning-ready flex zone over the Achilles) and roomy 102mm last serve up a tasty blend of performance and all-day comfort during dawn-to-dusk missions. To top it all off, there's a Vibram UFO Evo Scarpa sole for serious traction on rocks and hard snow, and an extra removable power strap over the liner.

Scarpa Freedom Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Freedom Alpine Touring Boot
The Scarpa Freedom Alpine Touring Boot is packed full of high-tech materials and well-thought features. It has a patented Carbon Core, patented Ride Power Block walk mode, Axial Power Control technologies, and it was toiled over by gram-counting geeks. But, all you need to know is that it's lighter, stiffer, and super-powerful on the downhill. The Overlap closure system delivers a gap-free fit for optimal energy transfer, which also translates to power. No doubt about it, this freeride boot is light as a metaphorical feather, friction-free on the hike up, and an absolute beast on the descent.An anatomic 101mm last gives your foot some wiggle room, which is nice for the climb, and it features Axial Power for lateral stiffness and control. The Intuition liner can be heat molded for a seamless fit and enhanced performance. This precise fit adds to the warmth this liner provides, which you'll notice during those scenery-loving breaks on the summit. The Ride Power Block allows a 27-degree range of motion on the hike and locks down securely for solid downhill performance. Vibram's Mountain Piste sole fits all alpine bindings and is interchangeable with an AT-compatible sole (optional). The Freedom and Freedom SL make up Scarpa's hard-charging freeride line.

Scarpa Freedom RS Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Freedom RS Alpine Touring Boot
Last year's Freedom SL was the biggest, baddest boot that Scarpa had ever made, so what did Scarpa go and do this year' Oh, just came up with an even burlier and beefier offering that can climb like a goat and shred like a freeride boot, so you can charge lines that used to be reserved for jump-turning weight weenies. Called the Freedom RS (Rocket Sauce' We're not sure.), the new boot is nominally an alpine touring boot, but that designation is belied by the 130 flex, carbon-reinforced Pebax Rnew shell, and race-inspired polyamide cuff that put a premium on downhill awesomeness. When you're skiing, the RS feels like a pure alpine boot, thanks in part to the reinforced race-style upper of the Intuition Cross Fit Ride RS liner, but its Ride Power Block XT Ski/Hike switch gives you 25 degree of killer cuff rotation, so you can make short work of skintracks and ridge hikes. The burliness of the Power Block gives you a rock-solid feel when you're punching big faces at high speed, and the removable spoiler and adjustable forward lean let you customize your setup to achieve maximum uphill efficiency and downhill power. Around your feet and ankles, the Cross Fit Ride liner provides heat-moldable comfort, and the four micro-adjustable buckles let you fine tune the fit for all-day comfort and skiing precision. Scarpa topped the RS off with a big ol' power strap to let you drive your skis as hard as you can handle and also made sure the grippy Vibram Mountain Plus tech soles were removable, so you can pop them off and replace them with traditional alpine soles if you're spending the week terrorizing in-bounds terrain.

Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot
What's the use in schlepping your backcountry setup to the top of gnarly chutes and untouched pillow lines if your boot can't hang on the descent' The Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot carries to your throne as King of the Mountain while balancing weight and hard-charging performance. The burly 120 flex index and four-buckle design offer a more aggressive ride than the standard Freedom, but the SL is almost a pound lighter thanks to the stiff, light Pebax Rnew shell with Advanced Injection Technology. The boot features a Ride Power Block walk mode that delivers 27 degrees of frictionless range of motion for efficient climbing and easily locks back into ski mode for rippin' power transmission on the downhill. Long gone are the days when you had to cram your tootsies into torturous race-style boots to get the performance you need. The 101mm anatomic last provides a precise and sensitive fit for medium width feet, while the heat-moldable Intuition Speed Ride liners wrap your feet in buttery comfort usually reserved for footwear other than ski boots. The Freedom SL slips effortlessly into all AT and tech (TLT) bindings with the rugged, lugged Vibram Mountain Plus sole, but for skiers who occasionally catch a bad case of ride-the-chairlift-itis, you can swap for the Vibram Mountain Piste sole (sold separately) and click into what those resort people call "ahllll-pine biiin-dings," or however the name of that strange contraption is pronounced. Look, the Freedom SLs know you'll be spending most of your time on backcountry adventures and grinding in the skintrack, but chairlifts happen to the best of us from time to time. These boots won't judge.

Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot - Women's Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
The Scarpa Women's Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot is Queen of the Mountain in the Scarpa freeride line. It's the burliest, with a 120 flex index, but almost a pound lighter than the standard Freedom. The SL also uses a lighter Intuition liner and more aggressive sole. Compared to Scarpa's touring boots, the Freedom SL is more versatile (added alpine capability) and is stiffer and more powerful, but it does weigh more than the Maestrale or F1. It has a Ride Power Block that delivers frictionless motion for efficient climbing and locks in back support for power transmission on the downhill. For the woman who needs a boot that can charge off the lift in alpine bindings or slip efficiently into the backcountry with tech (TLT) bindings, the Freedom SL has few equals.Rather than rebadge the men's version with a little pink and a soft flex, Scarpa's engineers made the last a little smaller and the cuff a little lower to match the shape and size of a woman's foot and calf. The Pebax Rnew shell overlaps for a gap-less fit. Its Carbon Core technology wraps it around a bomber carbon frame for lightweight and allover stiffness for precision control. The Intuition FR Speed liner boot is molded with the shell for a seamless fit and powerful performance, key in making the distinction between a competent alpine/AT boot and one that kills it. The 101mm anatomic last features Axial Power Control for lateral stiffness and sensitivity.The interchangeable Vibram sole gives you lugged tenacity when hiking over scree or down-climbing into a rocky chute--the boot comes with the Rockered Mountain Plus sole for AT and tech bindings, but the Mountain Piste sole is available separately for those who rip on alpine bindings, too. You'll feel the advantage in an instant and respond with a peaceful mind. After all, you don't want to charge down a finger chute with already-frayed nerves.

Scarpa Gea RS Alpine Touring Boot - Women's Scarpa Gea RS Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
Back in the days when phone had cords and computers made death noises when they connected to the internet, you couldn't have a backcountry ski boot that charged like a full-on alpine boot. Times change, though, and now that you're connected everywhere you go, you might as well also enjoy the all-in-one freeride and touring performance of the Scarpa Gea RS Women's Alpine Touring Boot. With an rugged 120 flex, stiff polyamide shell, burly power strap, and Evo V-Frame cuff, the RS charges steep lines, big faces, and deep pow as hard as you want to, but still crushes the skin track with a 37 range of cuff motion that'd you'd expect to find in a softer boot. It also weighs barely three pounds, so your hip flexors won't be screaming in pain if you have to skin more than a few miles to get to your line. Scarpa hooked the Gea up with it's brand-spanking-new Mirage Pro ski/walk mode, which locks the shell securely to the cuff with two metal pins for bombproof downhill performance and makes it easier to switch between ski and walk modes. It also gave it a stiff Pebax Axial Alpine tongue, which hinges at the toe and actually pivots sideways away from the shell, letting you get your boot on and off easily as well as providing a smooth, progressive flex that eliminates dead spots and stiff zones. It also allows the oversized Zeus buckles and instep-locking Predator HRS strap to securely wrap around your foot, eliminating sloppy fits and uncomfortable pressure points. The Gea comes with a stiff heat-moldable Intuition Pro Flex RS Women's liner so you can dial in the perfect fit, a Fitting Indicator System to help you align your Dynafit Quick Step-In tech inserts with your binding, and is finished off with a grippy Vibram Cayman rubber sole for confident footing on slick terrain, ice, and rocks.

Scarpa Maestrale Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Maestrale Alpine Touring Boot
Scarpa's Maestrale 1. 0 Alpine Touring Boot is the best-selling AT boot of all time, and it's back for this winter plus some attitude and minus a few ounces. It's been trimmed down to just over three pounds, but kept the 39 of cuff rotation, 100 flex rating, and 101mm last that made it such a capable, comfortable boot on the ascent as well as the descent. The most significant upgrade is the new Mirage Pro ski/walk mode, which uses two locking pins for bombproof stability on the way down and makes for easier switching between climbing and descending modes. Scarpa's also hooked the Maestrale up with a stiff, powerful Evo V-Frame cuff and a heat-moldable Intuiation Pro Flex G liner that'll give you seasons of serious comfort and warmth after a quick trip to the bootfitter. A smooth, consistent, and progressive flex is seriously important if you're going to chow down on big-time terrain, so the Maestrale's been designed with Scarpa's exclusive Axial Alpine closure: the stiff Pebax tongue hinges at the toe of the boot and actually pivots to the side, making it easy to get the boot on and off and giving you total control of the boot's volume all the way through the forefoot. You won't have to sweat pinched or sloppy feet, as each buckle pulls the tongue in instead of clamping it shut more tightly, letting the tongue flex naturally and predictably. The buckles themselves are made of lightweight magnesium, and the top one features a Tour-Lock clasp that keeps the bale securely in the ladder, even when unbuckled, for easy re-buckling when you're ready to shred. There is a Fitting Indicator System to help line up the Dynafit Quick Step-In tech fittings with your bindings, and a Vibram Cayman rubber sole to take the pucker factor out of traversing exposed rock and ice; yeah, the Maestrale has it all.

Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Boot
Remember when backcountry touring meant wool sweaters and knickers, skinny skis, leather boots, and low-angle turns while whistling carefree tunes' Neither does the hard-charging Scarpa Maestrale RS Alpine Touring Boot. Wool is great, as are mellow turns, but the Maestrale's more interested in shredding the crap out of steep chutes, ripping big faces, and slaying deep pow. It's 20% stiffer and only 1. 5oz heavier than the old Maestrale, with a burly 120 flex, stiff polyamide shell, and stout power strap that provide plenty of juice when the lines get big but still checks in at under 3. 5 lbs for most sizes, so you'll be able to make it up the skin track faster than your partner. The cuff also rotates a full 37, which isn't too far behind many more uphill-oriented AT boots. Scarpa's new Mirage Pro ski/walk mode makes it super easy to switch between uphill and downhill settings, and locks the cuff to the shell with two stiff metal pins for serious power and control without the risk of coming unlocked when you don't want it to. In conjunction with the Evo V-Frame cuff, this gives the Maestrale plenty of fore and aft stiffness, so you'll be able to crush it without feeling like you're wobbling backwards and forwards. Perhaps the Maestrale's most distinctive feature is the stiff Axial Alpine Pebax tongue, which hinges at the toe and pivots out away from the boot for super easy entry and exit, as well as a smooth and progressive flex that eliminates stiff and dead spots. It cinches down better than traditional overlap-style shells for uniform volume control through the forefoot, eliminating pinching and slop, and the oversize Zeus buckles and Predator HRS instep strap increase heel hold and power without making the Maestrale heavy and clunky. It comes complete with a heat-moldable Intuition Pro Flex RS liner and Vibram Cayman rubber sole for a customizable fit and serious traction, respectively, and features Dynafit Quick Step-In tech inserts with the Fitting Ind...

Scott Celeste II Alpine Touring Boot - Women's Scott Celeste II Alpine Touring Boot - Women's
Although its combination of bright, beautiful blue cuff and snow-like white shell reminds you of bluebird days, the Scott Women's Celeste II Alpine Touring Boot is far from just another pretty face. This boot sports a lightweight design suitable for steep skinners and long days in the backcountry, and a stiff 120 flex provides the performance that intermediate to advanced downhill skiers look for. Scott achieved this phenomenal flex-to-weight ratio by building the boot out of Powerlite, which is a combination of stiff, superlight Grilamid and sturdy polyurethane. Underfoot, the Celeste features Vibram's ever-reliable rubber sole that, when combined with a ski/walk mode, allows the Celeste to reach the most celestial heights via mountaineering routes. This heavenly touring boot also features Scott's thermo-moldable Pwr Lite liner that offers a customized fit after a short heat-packing process. Pwr Lite also has a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproof breathable protection, and mesh panels enhance ventilation for the airflow required on sweaty skinners. Shock dampening inserts make your downhill experience more solid than most touring boots can offer.

Scott Cosmos II Alpine Touring Boot - Men's Scott Cosmos II Alpine Touring Boot - Men's
If you'd rather not spend your days in the backcountry with your feet crammed into an unforgiving race boot or floating around in a floppy-noodle rando boot, then get yourself the Scott Cosmos II Men's Alpine Touring Boot. Made of a marvelously stiff and light Grilamid plastic, the Cosmos II is a fairly aggressive boot, with a burly flex of 125 and a lean angle of 11. 5 degrees. It also weighs just over three pounds, making it seriously competitive in the poundage department. But it's a more powerful boot than many of the other AT offerings out there, including Scott's slightly lighter Orbit II, thanks to the Grilamid and Scott's PowerLite reinforcing ribs that are placed through the shell and cuff. If you're a serious skier who spends serious time getting to serious lines, the Cosmos is one you don't want to miss.Don't get the impression that it's a one-dimensional downhill boot, either. It has 60 degrees of cuff rotation for easy ankle articulation, a rugged ski/walk switch, and an aluminum lean/lock bar that allows both the shell and the cuff to move freely for a more natural touring motion. Scott's also redesigned the tech fittings, making them Dynafit certified for an easy and solid connection with Dynafit tech bindings.. We'd also be remiss to not mention the PWR Lite liner, which is seamless, fully thermo-moldable, and it has a reinforced tongue for plenty of smooth-flexing power.

Scott Orbit Alpine Touring Boot - Men's Scott Orbit Alpine Touring Boot - Men's
Scott designed the Orbit Men's Alpine Touring Boot exceptionally well, except for one major flaw: if you hit the skin track too fast, there's chance you might actually launch off the top of the ridge and end up stuck in outer space. If you can look past this potential drawback, the Orbit's an awesome boot with a 115 flex Powerlite and Pebax construction, which is strengthened with reinforcements, and 60 degrees of cuff rotation to keep you charging on the way up. The Orbit is slightly softer than Scott's top offering, the Cosmos, but weighs a few ounces less and has a two-buckle design to save time during transitions. Apart from the flex and weight, the two are pretty much identical, with redesigned low-friction, high-retention tech fittings, micro-adjustable Ergal buckles, and full-length Vibram soles that make walking on slick rocks as easy as sliding down powdery bowls. As is today's norm, the Orbit has a fully heat-moldable liner, which is also seamless and made with a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproof, breathable protection. It sits inside a comfortable 103. 5 last that can accommodate wide feet, and Scott also included shock-dampening footbed inserts to keep your dogs from barking even on long, rugged tours. The Orbit switches into walk mode with the flick of a switch, and Scott even strengthened the locking rear bar to help you avoid broken boots, which is seriously no bueno.

Scott Superguide Carbon GTX Alpine Touring Boot Scott Superguide Carbon GTX Alpine Touring Boot
You and your Scott Superguide Carbon Ski Boots have a bright future filled with powder-filled tours and big, backcountry descents. Scott designed the Superguide for the skier that would rather ski boilerplate in the backcountry, rather than shell out three bills to stand in lift lines for nearly an hour just to ski elbow-to-elbow with tourists and park rats. The Superguide is a dedicated backcountry boot with a stiff flex, excellent cuff rotation, and a Gore-Tex liner to keep your feet dry, no matter what.Scott has been producing some serious backcountry boots ever since the company acquired Garmont a few years back, but with a Gore-Tex liner, carbon inlays, and an aggressive 125 flex, the Superguide is anything but a rehash of old Garmont Designs. Skiing in the backcountry means you'll be spending about 90 percent of your time going up, so the 60-degree cuff rotation will be a welcome companion when you're setting an efficient skintrack. When wind-scoured ridgelines make skinning sketchy, and somewhat impossible, the aggressively lugged Vibram sole will come into play to give you the traction needed to gain the summit safely. And when it's time to rip skins and point your skis down, lock the three Ergal buckles down, secure the power strap, and step into your tech bindings with confidence thanks to the Dynafit-certified tech inserts.

Tecnica Zero G Guide Pro Alpine Touring Boot Tecnica Zero G Guide Pro Alpine Touring Boot
Tecnica's known for its ability to build burly resort-crushing boots, and it's officially bringing that expertise to the backcountry. The Zero G Guide Pro Alpine Touring Boot is Tecnica's newest backcountry offering and is built with all the high-end tech to deliver a precise and comfortable fit, big-line-crushing stiffness, and solid tourability for those bigger days in the backcountry.First of all, the Zero G Guide Pro sits at the top of Tecnica's Zero G line and weighs a full four ounces (115 grams) less than the Zero G Guide. Weighing right around three and a half pounds per pair in a 26. 5, this boot is by no means an ultralight boot, but it is light enough to tackle long tours and steep skintracks, without compromising an ounce of power on the descent--besides, you did hike all that way to actually ski, right' The Zero G houses a burly 130 flex that will inspire confidence in and out of the resort and Dynafit-certified tech inserts that will fit your touring setup. Skiers looking for a boot that will do it all will also appreciate the interchangeable sole system that will fit standard alpine bindings with the purchase of additional soles. Out of the box, the Zero G comes equipped with Skywalk rubber soles that grip everything from wind-blown ridge lines to icy resort parking lots.Where the Zero G Guide Pro really stands out, though, is with its C. A. S. shell. The shell is pre-shaped to fit most feet well out of the box, but also features a dimple structure that makes punching and shaping the shell easier on bootfitters, so you get a better fit with a little help from the experts. The Power Light Design consists of a bi-injected frame that is 30% stiffer and 2. 5 times stiffer than traditional boot material, which translates to less weight on the uphill and more power on the descent. 44 degrees of cuff rotation allow for easy skinning, and the metal-on-metal connection locks the cuff into ski mode.
