Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
If you are dabbling into skimo racing, or just need a boot to take laps up your local resort in the morning before work, this boot is perfect. The removable tongue gives you more range of motion than any other boot on the market and the "frictionless pivot" cuff system makes for smooth and effortless tour.
I have a pair of these to supplement my Backland Carbon's - carbon's for beefier missions or where i need the stiffness, and these when i am just out for a lap. They will keep both my boots in top shape for longer and because the parts on both boots are the same - they will be great interchangeable part boots.
