    Mesmerizingly smooth turns.

    Black Diamond built its Women’s Trance Telemark Ski Boot to deliver oodles of comfort during your skin to the ridge and a medium flex for a responsive-feeling ride back down. Designed with a variety of women-specific features, this touring boot resembles its y-chromosomed cousins only for its ability to slay lap after lap with equal gusto.
    • Part of Black Diamond’s Telemark Efficient Series, this boot features lightweight materials and touring-specific tech to maximize speed, efficiency, and, ultimately, the day's lap tally
    • Women-specific fit features a lower-set and more voluminous cuff, an adjustable calf spoiler, increased ramp in the boot boards, and a slightly narrower Achilles zone
    • Triax Tele Tour frame provides a forgiving flex that operates independent of tongue stiffness for increased performance and comfort on the skin track
    • A 102-millimeter last is designed to maximize toe-box comfort while providing plenty of snugness near the heel
    • A flex-rating of 100 enhances comfort while still delivering enough stiffness for proper energy transfer and precise control
    • Mechanically integrated ski/walk mode delivers unsurpassed freedom while touring
    • Efficient Fit Tele liner with Strobel base reduces weight for touring efficiency, is thermformable, and includes a Boa closure system for a precise fit and on-the-go adjustability
    • Rubber outsole provides grip in cold conditions for touring versatility
    • Item #BLD1304

    Next time I will go back to Scarpa

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I had real trouble finding a women's tele boot that I could buy in a shop, so I had to buy these on-line (without trying them on, but tried on the stiletto for size). The stiletto 26.5 fitted but the 26.5 trance was way too small. Turns out the shell size was right, but the liner was way too small because the toe of the liner angles back from the sole (unlike the shell) leaving a dead space in the toe of the shell. This means you need a bigger than necessary shell for a liner that fits your foot. So I had to ditch the liners and buy new ones. Also note that the liners are not thermomouldable (Intuition has tired to themomould it and it doesn't mould, it's just normal foam). So I did at least end up with a thermofit liner. Then the boot was not comfortable and I had to get the plastic punched out. They are also really heavy.



    Also, the front buckle is in the wrong spot. On me, when the bottom buckle is as tight as it goes it's still pretty loose.



    Another thing, and this may not affect people who don't have to walk up to snow in their boots from below the snow line (like we do in Australia) but the sole is poor. I've walked up to the snow once and the sole is breaking up already. The bit around the 3 pins is coming out in chunks.



    My old boots were men's Scarpas that were a bit big and over 10 years old. They were still good boots for Austrlia though. I should have tried harder to get Scarpas again, lighter, themofit liner, buckles proably in the right place and a much better sole (vibram) that lasts years of bushwalking on them.



    My trances were very expensive (with adjustments) and are now OK (admittedly a cool colour). I guess if you try them on and they're comfortable and the buckles can be properly tightened and you don't need to walk on the ground and you're resort skiing (so the weight is not a problem) then go for it. Otherwise my experience says stick with the people who've been doing this for ever and buy Scarpa.

    how does this boot compare to the Scarpa...

    how does this boot compare to the Scarpa T2 Eco? Does it fit a wide foot well?

    Unanswered Question

    how does this boot compare to the women's...

    how does this boot compare to the women's Scarpa T2 Eco? Also, she has a high arch and a wide foot, is there a BD boot that will work for her and is still low in the back?
