Ski-mountaneering boot that weighs only 3.2 Kg (size 42 French scale). Buckles have macrometric adjustment and two positions separated 15 mm each other (only the upper buckle). Also they have a lever with 2 positions: walk and ski. You can rotate the eccentric stud located on the external side of the cuff with the appropiate hexagonal key. Rotating towards the + sign increases the canting. The degree of inclination may vary between +1 / -1º with respect to the standard lateral inclination. The liner is designed for maximum warmth and features a lace closure system and a non-slip sole for walking. Close the upper part of it by tightening the velcro strap.

Prices are those in Spain.

Good boot, weighs a little, very comfortable and hard enough. I've already had no problems with it. I used to hire these boots but I've recently bought them. So I can use them on many ranges, with cold and not so. The upper buckle can be rotated to enlarge its leg but I think this custom could loose the buckle itself.

I have used these boots for relatively long tours, alpine skiing, and a little climbing. For climbing, they are fairly heavy and stiff (like all ski boots I've used) although they are lighter than others. They work well for steep snow and ice, but for rock or anything requiring walking they are too stiff.

For touring they work quite well and I've never had problems wearing them all day. They are very nice for skiing. Comfortable and plenty of control.

Shit boot. I have always gotten severe bone skin inflammations of my shins because of the hard crease where the tongue/flap of the interior shoe snaps. So I can use the shoe only with another interior shoe (from my alpine ski shoes). I know other people who have the same big problems which I have. The exterior shoe is good.
