The new lace cover is extra elastic and comfortably hugs the instep and calf. The Sealed Zipper, which limits the intrusion of water into the boot, opens to reveal the raised inner liner. This is constructed of a breathable mesh and provides added security and warmth, which really prove valuable over longer ski sessions. During development of this new component, special focus was given to comfort, with tangible results: the skier immediately feels secure and comfortable when stepping into this soft material, which couldn’t be easier, thanks to the Easy Entry Loops. The flat laces with the extra small and easy-to-use Speed Lock System ensure the boot has no uncomfortable pressure points, and that feet of any shape have a secure heel hold. The new Auto Heel Fit Strap allows the heel hold to be individually customized. This is the way to successfully enable a powerful, direct push-off to achieve high speeds on groomed tracks.
