Backcountry ski boots have vastly improved over the past few years. No longer do you have to settle for soft, less aggressive AT boots on the downhill or endure the pain of skinning up in stiff, bruise inducing alpine boots. Garmont's latest freeride boots deliver the downhill performance you expect together with flexibility and comfort.
Garmont has created a new internal chassis, called the PowerFrame, with a redesigned fit and better touring function. The High Overlap shell and cuff work together to deliver perfect mid-foot power transfer, while at the same time offering an unrestricted touring stride through the removal of the tongue.
The new Garmont freeride boots use a high-performance last that gives you space in the forefoot but remains snug in your mid-foot and heel to give you better edge control. The double injected lower boot shell secures your foot and links seamlessly to the outer frame to give you that extra leverage.
The Garmont boots come with quick changing soles, compatible with 3 different bindings (TECH, ISO Alpine and ISO Touring). The soles snap securely in place and are fixed with 3 pozi-drive bolts for each boot.
The magnesium Easy Ski/Walk Mechanism features three forward lean positions that can simply and precisely be adjusted via one hex bolt. The asymmetric Easy Ski/Walk Lever can be opened and closed with gloved hands.
The new Fall 2011 Garmont freeride boots, Delirium for men and Asylum for women, will retail for $799.
