Flex Rating (1 Soft – 10 Stiff) – 9, Very stiff boot that gives you precise handling and response
Articulating Cuff – The new shell construction creates a high-performing, smooth-flex boot that is easier to lace and has a significantly lower volume than standard construction. Also, it has a smooth, seamless inside without any sharp edges that could result in pressure points. On top of that, there is less shell distortion, resulting in a consistent heel hold through the full flex range.
Thermo-formed 3D tongue with seamless construction for an even, smooth flex
Quick-Strike Velcro allows a snug fit at the cuff and adds a third zone of stability.
Extended sneaker-like fit with snowboard boot stability structure
Open cell PU foam cuff top to reduce pressure on the calf
Dynalite™ – The all-NEW Dynalite™ liners are designed to cling to the foot, even out pressure points and absorb the shock of impact by dispersing the energy throughout the body. The Dynalite™ liner is thirty-seven percent lighter than a regular liner, thus more comfortable for a longer period of time as it provides the optimum amount of compression. Dynalite™ is highly engineered foam with a consistent cell wall structure, uniform cell size and consistent cell shape, which allows it to recover to its original shape over 3 times better than conventional foam.
Asymmetrical Memory Foam C-Pads – Adjusts to the shape of the ankle, provides optimum heel fit and shield the ankle bone from unwanted pressure
