Lay the hammer down.
Put the hurt on on big lines, huge drops, and rough trannys with the Head Men's Hammer 130 Ski Boots. Head's all-new Hammer boot incorporates a three-piece shell design with 360-degrees of cushioning to deliver a natural flexing shell that keeps feet comfortable after a full day of sending big cliffs and well-manicured park features. Don't be lured into thinking the Hammer 130 is just your dad's old racing boot with a bunch of funky colors slapped on there, though, because this boot totes its own set of features specifically designed for skiers who'd rather spend their time spinning above the snow, rather than on it.
The Hammer 130 sits at the top of the Head's freestyle line with a super stiff 130 flex, which can be backed down to 120 through the Flex Tuning system when conditions require a little softer feel. The interchangeable tongue creates an open throat shell, which in turn results in a boot that will flex progressively during landings for a more forgiving and predictable feel. Even though the Hammer sports a hard-hitting name, it's really a big softie on the inside with plenty of cushioning along the toe, foot board, rear spoiler, and shin. All this cushioning results in one thing—more comfortable feet. The dual-injected Walkgrip sole ensures solid traction when you're hiking to the goods, while three sturdy aluminum buckles and a wide 50mm power strap come together to serve up a super stiff closure to this burly freeride boot.

Comfy yet Stiff
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I got this boot as my second pair of boots this year after finding the Lange XT 130 to be to soft and sloppy. I was pretty intrigued by this Head boot but hadn't really seen too many personal reviews of it since it is brand new this year. I decided to take a chance and man am I happy I did. First off, entry into the boot is unbelievably easy. The liner is very comfy but does not feel mushy. I swapped out the tongue for the harder option and it feels just about as stiff as my race boots. The buckles work flawlessly and hold the foot down really nice. The sole is nice and grippy when walking in parking lots or up to the peak. Skiing is these, I feel really confident. The flex feels just right, lateral stiffness is unreal, and the padded boot board makes the hard landings not so hard.

This is a little teaser about what Head was focused on when developing the Hammer and Thrasher boots which are both based on the new Triad Ergoflex shell
(1) Size 12 U.S. - what size should I order? (2) Can I ski these without custom heat/fitting?
(1) Are you a US size 12 men's or women's? If you are men's, I would say you could make the 29.5 work for sure.
(2) Although you can ski them without molding them, getting a proper mold at a boot fitter will allow you to use these to their maximum capacity.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss these further. I can also help you find a boot fitter.
If I purchase Head Hammer 130 online, how do I get fitted for the boots?
