Lightweight, sturdy, and ready for miles of snowy trekking.
- Two ratchet buckles and a heel strap lock your hiking or winter boot into the EVA-padded harness so you can take thousands of comfortable and secure steps over a blissfully silent backcountry trail
- Freeflex Pivot system rotates on an axle so the shoe stays level with the snow and then swings back into position as you take a step
- The Ultra-Lightec deck flexes freely to improve shock absorption; decking retains its flex in temperatures down to minus 40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit)
- The Bent Tail provides a smoother stride, drags less, and makes backward steps easier
- Backcountry 3D-molded harness matches your foot’s shape and includes EVA padding to improve cushioning on hardpack
- Carbon steel toe crampon bites into the snow and ice with several multidirectional points
- Heel riser boosts your heel’s resting height so the shoe stays flush with the snow and so your calf doesn’t fatigue on steep ascents

Have had these for 2 winters now and I have not had any issues with the decking breaking like other reviews and if I did I would just return to backcountry.com. These shoes are light, have great traction in all snow conditions and the heel lift is nice for steep hikes. The only issue I've had is that my boot slides foward no matter how tight I buckle them. I wear a pair of size 12 sorels when using them and when my boot slides foward my toe then hits the decking with every step.
Good thing there a warranty because they break in a week
I received these for christmas and used then about 6 time. the plastic broke in the back where it wrap around the frame, on both! Then I went to the store to get the warranty. I was astonished that the same model in the sotre were broken at the same place, did the store put them back in order to resell them to someone else or they were already broken, I don't know. But I know that I broken both in under a month, I wouldn't recommand this product to anyone because of that.
I shall be able to put on them on snowboard...
I shall be able to put on them on snowboard boot size 13?
Might be a bit tight getting them on. I have size 10.5 feet with some fairly big boots ( north face slot winter boots), and it can be a challenge getting the toe to fit in properly. A good bet for you before you buy is visit an outdoor outfitter with your boots and try one on. It does not really need to be the same shoes, most binding are pretty much the same now
