Description

Garmont's Axon Alpine Touring Boot provides power for the pound-counter.

Garmont's Dynafit-compatible Axon Alpine Touring Boot hikes light and skis hard. Garmont made this stiff AT boot for big mountain freeriders who can't be bothered with heavy, cumbersome bindings. Powerful enough to drive the biggest planks in the gnarliest conditions, and still light and comfortable enough for day tours, the Axon nails high performance versatility like no other ski boot. The thermo-moldable High G-fit liner provides support and customized comfort. The liner's lace-up system locks your heel down for an optimal, secure fit within the shell. The multi-injected cuff and carbon fiber-reinforced shell maintain structure and stiffness no matter how hard you charge. This provides quick and precise power transmission throughout the boot. Magnesium buckles keep the Axon Boot lightweight while the two lower buckles' Icebreaker pins destroy ice that accumulates during long tours.

Great touring boot

I am an experienced skier and use burly alpine boots in resort (currently Lange Banshee Pro). The Axons have been a great buy for me, as they preserve a stiff enough boot for skiing in the backcountry, but have been comfortable/light enough for 3-4 day ski tours. I have mid to narrow feet and use Lange boots for resort skiing, and found Garmont boots to give me a good comparable fit.

Inserts

I wore out my MR's inserts...but I was hucking cliffs at Bridger on them too. Garmont replaced the shells but warned it was a one time deal. Great for everything else!

Tech inserts

With regards to Pancho's comments about the tech inserts wearing out, i have a 5 year old pair of Megarides, which I tour on 60+ days a year and there are no signs of wear on the inserts. They work as well as the day I got them. Dynafit bindings have been on the market 12+ years and to my knowledge there has never been an issue with tech inserts on boots wearing out. I just got the Axon's and love them. They have the power to drive just about any ski and the fit is awesome.

Lowdown on all Scarpas and Garmonts

This is a heads up on all Scarpa and Garmont boot buyers: The metal rivets in the toe piece that make these boots Dynafit compatable, well, when they wear out they cannot be replaced (think two seasons). I know Black Diamond and (of course) Dynafit boots you can replace these pieces for around $30. Got this info from the horses mouth, just a huge heads up for those without mucho $$$....$30 versus $600. Your call.

Will these also work with traditional Alpine bindings? Anyone tried?

Most AT boots can't be used with regular alpine grabbers. The boots are not DIN compatible. The only way an AT boot can work with "regular" alpine bindings is with a changeable sole. The Factors have a sole that can be changed if you are looking for something comparable. The Garmont Endorphin is very similar to the Axon, yet it includes additional alpine soles for use in alpine bindings. The statement that Axon is not DIN compatible is not entirely true. AT bindings are DIN, too. They just have different specifications (ISO Alpine NORM vs. ISO Touring NORM) for reliable release. Alpine bindings require a hard plastic sole. AT bindings allow for release with rubber soles.

the straight scoop

Hey look, heres the deal, these boots are bomber! I struggled for a long time over which boots to buy. My old Denalis and Freerides are wore out. I was real hesitant to go with the Axon do to extra cost and weight, but after trying on many boots there was just no comparison. I tried the new Dynafit Zero Carbons, Spirit 4's, Denali's, Endorphines, etc. (by the way, the Endorphines are not identical to the Axons except Dynafit compatibility, they are an entirely different feeling boot) Simply put, the Axon is just bomber. Slide this thing on your foot and you'll know instantly what I'm talking about. Solid, stiff, smooth flex. Each boot is a pound heavier than my Denalis; it's barely noticeable. Besides, I made all that weight back in the Dynafit binding instead of the Freeride anyway. If your really really worried about weight the Spirit 4 is the closest thing to the Axon out of all the other boots and it less chubby. Good luck.

Axon

Awesome fit and much more performance than any other Dynafit boot that I've skied. If you're looking to drive a big ski with a Dynafit set up, this is the way to go. Liner is stiffer than other Garmont's and still thermoformable and the zeppa is nice for grinding and adjusting your stance. The zeppa also adds a little cush and warmth. No other AT boot that I've seen has one. This boots brings Dynafit to a new level of performance.
