A stiff, Tech-compatible boot for big-mountain backcountry domination.
- Reinforced shell with thick walls in key stress areas cuts down weight and boosts support and stiffness
- Boot is compatible with Tech binding systems (Dynafit) so you don’t have to heave heavy, cumbersome bindings up the hill
- Close-fit, double-injected cuff conforms to your leg so the boot responds for quick turns through trees
- Boot unlocks for an easy stride on the uphill and locks in two forward-lean positions for the downhill
- T-nuts on buckles can be moved forward or back to accommodate your lower-leg diameter
- Asymmetric toe shape relieves pressure on the bone that connects to your big toe
- Height-adjustable spoiler reduces play between inner boot and shell

I'm looking to replace 5yr old Garmont Adrenalin with a similar boot that's good for both freeriding and day tours (steep rather than long). And I'd like something Dynafit Compatible this time.
Is the Axon similar to the Adrenalin in both ski and walk, or would a Dyanfit Titan or ZZeus be a better match?
do the job
I've been skiing my Axons for two years now with 20-25 days per season of touring and another dozen days a year on the hill when I'm yo-yoing around the lifts in my touring set up (dynafits).This is a rock solid ski boot and lives up to its full-on downhill boot performance advertising. Mind you, they don't quite deliver the rack and pinion steering of my Lange Comps, but I never expected them to.Here's one small problem: When in ski mode, they have two forward lean positions and if you push the boot to its max forward lean position, the middle two buckles hit each other when driving the boot through a hard turn or when hitting a bump in the terrain. This produces a loud click you can feel right through your leg. The first three days I skiied on these, I something was broken until I figured it was the buckles clicking over each other. I now simply use the first lean setting to avoid this annoyance. Poor but small design flaw.As for fit, I have a medium width foot, and these boots fit fine. I wear a 27.0 - the same mondo as my race-fit Langes. I fit my foot to the shell, taking the liner out and testing for a full finger width between my heel and the back of the shell. As with any boot, no problems with packed out liners if you fit the shell properly.These boots are fine in walk mode but I might consider a softer boot if I was doing extended long hauls. I loosen the power strap and use only the clasps on the top two buckles. And because the fit around the foot is snug, no blisters no movement, lots of flex, no complaints.Last comment, I have been toying with the idea of getting a wrap around intuition liner. The tongue on these stock liners seems to get confused around the top of my instep - more of a minor annoyance than a real problem. I might try a new liner but I would have to be feeling rich and fussy at the moment of decision.

2050g is for one boot? it'd be helpful if this was specified.
yup, I think so, as the pair runs at least 9-10lbs, and that looks right.

What's the difference between the two different liners that I have been reading about on Garmonts web site? also which one is backcountry.com selling?
We sell the 'Rapid' version of Garmont's liners. They are more featured than the 'Pad Lock' versions. Updated toe-box liners and Pebax material for the tongues are just a few of the tweaks made to the 'Rapid'.

Do you ship to Germany? - I am interested in the Garmont Axon 27,5 with the thermo formable liner.
