- Q & A
Splitboard Mountaineering Boot
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The combination of the stiffness, ankle lockdown boa, and the semi-automatic crampon welt make this boot a splitboard mountaineers dream boot. The Semi-auto crampon welt and stiffness make it easy to do kick steps up even the iciest of couloirs without sacrificing freeride performance on the downhill.
Sturdy Boots for the Backcountry
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I gave these as a gift to my friend and he unfortunately blew his knee out so hasn't got to use them much...but they are great sturdy boots and rule for the backcountry/splitboarding. Very responsive. He said they weren't the most comfortable right off the bat and will take some time to break in. But if you are looking for a technical freeride boot built to handle technical alpine lines this is a great choice.
Bought these for my brother for Christmas. He says they're awesome!
