Atomic Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot Atomic Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot
Being the lightest offering in Atomic's all-new line of touring-specific boots, the Backland Carbon Light Alpine Touring Boot is for the skier looking to shave ounces from their backcountry setup, while retaining much of the same downhill performance that can be found on stiffer and heavier options in the Backland line. Geared toward the lighter-is-better, more rando-focused crowd, the Backland Carbon Light weighs a feathery 2lb 3oz (987g) per boot in a 27. 5 shell size and comes equipped with a soft tongue to further reduce weight.The shell is made from a heat-moldable Grilamid material and has a 98mm last, making it a true low-volume boot. The Memory Fit shell can be customized to accommodate wider feet and feet that require more volume in the instep. The Platinum Liner can also be customized for a more precise and comfortable fit. Unique to all Backland boots is the washable liner that can be cleaned after consecutive days on the mountain. At first glance, the most notable feature on the Backland is the simple and burly Free/Lock 2. 0 walk mode, which consists of an easily engaged and disengaged lever, that once locked in, remains fully rigid during the descent due to a metal-on-metal connection, which is all external, preventing icing and wear over time. As mentioned, the Carbon Light comes equipped with a soft tongue that can be left in when touring and skiing, or left out altogether to save weight. The addition of the soft tongue will add stiffness to the boot, which is punctuated by the carbon spine that is not only lightweight, but stiff and powerful for the descent.

Dalbello Sports Lupo 120 Ski Boot Dalbello Sports Lupo 120 Ski Boot

The Hy-Grip rubber toe and heel assist with hiking over rocks and slick surfaces, and a rockered stance eases hiking and enhances downhill performance.

Dalbello Sports Lupo Carbon T.I. Ski Boot Dalbello Sports Lupo Carbon T.I. Ski Boot
Light on weight and heavy on freeride performance, Dalbello's Lupo Carbon T. I. Ski Boot is a match made in heaven for any aggressive backcountry tourer. It's incredible that this backcountry boot can provide such a stiff flex of 130 and still allow a massive 67-degree cuff rotation in walk mode. That's because Dalbello equipped it with a removable tongue and clip at the heel that provide a natural heel motion while skinning while ensuring an aggressive performance on the downhill.Like all Dalbello's top models, the Lupo Carbon T. I. Ski Boot features a Cabrio construction that uses three separate pieces (tongue, cuff, and shell) to give the boot a smoother power transmission, a dynamic rebound, and excellent shock absorption. The shell also features Dalbello's wide Cuff Hyperband buckle that offers more comfort and less friction, while the Inverted forefoot buckle prevents breaking and bending like traditional buckles on the side usually do.Inside the boot, Dalbello inserted a thermo-moldable My Fit Light liner that conforms to your foot after a heating process and stays light and flexible enough to keep you skinning comfortably. Underfoot, the boot's Xtra Grip rubber toe and heel lugs stay solid when you're bootpacking up rocky summits, and you can interchange them with alpine DIN or touring soles for versatility in or out of the resort. Of course, the Lupo Carbon T. I. always accommodates tech bindings for those longer tours.

Dynafit TLT6 Performance CL Ski Boot Dynafit TLT6 Performance CL Ski Boot
Designed and built for big ascents and technical descents, the Dynafit TLT6 Performance CL Ski Boots are not for the faint of heart. These expert-level touring boots are built for the serious, committed, and sometimes crazy ski mountaineer. They're not only capable of skiing in technical terrain; they kind of insist on it. The Pebax shell resists extreme cold and stands up to the conditions you'll find in the wild and rugged alpine, while a carbon fiber and Pebax cuff with a driving rear spoiler deliver security and power when every turn counts.But all this strength and capability shouldn't be intimidating, because these boots come equipped with foot-loving Custom Light liners, which are anatomically shaped and moldable to every curve of your feet. Lightweight warmth gets a boost with additional felt and aluminum along the bottom of the boot to reflect heat. The newly re-designed Ultra-Lock System 2. 0 is designed for more fluid transitions with a shape that eliminates snagging. The downhill-booster tongue can be inserted before the descent to boost the stiffness of the boot, while the Ultra Lock Strap eliminates excess space between the tongue of the boot and shin bone, giving the boots the ability to drive skis with power and precision. The sole of the TLT6s is designed with mountaineering in mind with an extra durable material in the heel and toe that can be resoled, if necessary. The forward insert can be adjusted between 15 and 18 degrees with a forward lean insert, while instep buckle features a micro-adjustable design, allowing for an even more precise fit.

Dynafit Winter Guide GTX Ski Boot Dynafit Winter Guide GTX Ski Boot
Short tours are great, but the longer missions are the ones that stick with you. Sometimes it's because they're the most fun, but other times it's because you're suffering though frozen toes for days at a time, which is memorable for all the wrong reasons. Dynafit's Winter Guide GTX Ski Boot will let you enjoy long tours and cold days in comfort, though, with a Dynafit Custom Ready liner that's outfitted with a Gore-Tex Duratherm L membrane to keep your toes warm and dry when you're spending hours digging pits, sleeping at 13,000 feet, or heading out for a day of making pow turns at -15F. There's more to the Winter Guide than a warm and dry liner, though. Like any Dynafit, it can climb like a goat, with an Ultra Lock System 2. 0 ski/hike mode that toggles between a locked and open cuff with the flick of a single switch. When it's open, you have 60-degrees of super-smooth cuff rotation for easy skinning and bootpacking, and when it's closed the Driving Spoiler 2. 0 provides bomber skiing performance. The spoiler also has an insert that lets you choose between two forward lean settings, and the cuff cinches down via Dynafit's Ultra Lock power strap, which can be loosened up with a quick pull for faster transitions. The Winter Guide also features the Buckle Cable Retention System, which folds the buckles flat against the shell when they're open to prevent snags, and Dynafit's Quick Step-In tech inserts to make stepping into tech bindings a breeze, even in deeper snow.

Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot Fischer Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot
Comfortable, mobile, and reasonably skiable touring boots aren't big news anymore, but just because something's been around for a while doesn't mean it can't be improved. Heat-moldable liners are pretty much standard issue these days, but Fischer's Transalp Vacuum TS Lite Alpine Touring Boot takes things a step further with its heat-moldable shell, which allows you to dial in a personalized fit that even grinding, punching, and padding won't give you. Just heat the shell up, just like you would a liner, stick it on, buckle it up, and let it cool--the Vacu-Plast material will expand and then contract to the shape of your foot, improving fit, performance, and comfort. Coupled with the moldable lace-up liner, this gives the Transalp a level of unprecedented customization, so you can kiss hot-spots, slop, and pain goodbye for good. Of course, all the fit technology in the world won't make a good boot all on its lonesome, so Fischer made sure the rest of the Transalp was on point, too. The shell is designed to complement the position our feet tend to take (Fischer calls its ergonomic design features V-Position and On-Center Position), for increased control and comfort, and it has a ski/walk lever that offers a killer 53 degrees of fore-aft rotation for easy skinning. Three X-Lite aluminum buckles pull your foot into the shell without pinching, and a 40mm Touring power strap beefs up the relatively mild 115 flex, so the boots don't get overwhelmed if you're driving wider skis. An adjustable rear spoiler lets you play with the Transalp's 13-degree forward lean, and a grippy Vibram sole makes icy walks, rock scrambling, and parking lot detours a little bit less sketchy.

K2 Pinnacle 130 LV Alpine Touring Boot - Men's K2 Pinnacle 130 LV Alpine Touring Boot - Men's
Your days of squeezing into a skin suit and cramming your feet into a pair of plugged race boots may be long gone, but that doesn't mean you want to ski a couple of rando noodles when you venture into the backcountry. K2 understands your plight, so it built the Men's Pinnacle 130 LV Alpine Touring Boots with a stiff 130 flex, a tech- and alpine-compatible sole, and a walk mode that becomes completely rigid once you're ready to ski your line. This low volume version of the Pinnacle 130 has a narrow 97mm last, but maintains all the uphill capabilities as its 100mm last cousin.The Pinnacle 130 is unique in its ability to switch between alpine, tech, and alpine touring bindings in a single day, without having to ever switch out the soles. Integrated tech fittings let you step into your lightweight touring bindings when you're headed out on a long tour, while the included DIN-compatible soles offer consistent and reliable release values with your go-to alpine bindings when you plan on spending your day shredding the resort. The Pinnacle also stands apart from traditional touring boots thanks to its Synchro Interlock ski/walk mode, which utilizes an interlocking design instead of a bolt or hinge, reducing play between the shell and cuff once the boot is locked into ski mode. Once in walk mode, the Synchro Interlock system offers plenty of cuff rotation to access those more hard-to-access backcountry lines and long bootpacks inbounds. The Pinnacles comes with a thermo-moldable Intuition liner and are fitted with DIN compatible TPR soles; lugged Vibram soles are sold separately, and can be attached if you're planning on hiking wind-hammered ridge lines where the extra traction would be more than nice.

La Sportiva Sideral 2.0 Alpine Touring Boot La Sportiva Sideral 2.0 Alpine Touring Boot
When you require a lightweight, precise, and powerful boot for your next ski-mountaineering adventure, look no further than the Sideral 2. 0 Alpine Touring Boot from La Sportiva. The Sideral is made with a Grilamid shell that is extremely lightweight. To help maintain the lightness but improve power and skiability, La Sportiva added carbon fiber reinforcements throughout the cuff of the boot and a Pebax tongue with Vertebra Technology for a smooth, consistent, and substantial flex. Since long days in boots tend to be the norm in the mountains, a thermo-moldable EZ Thermo Tour liner mitigates any chafing or hot spots before they become a problem. To keep your feet from freezing during alternating belay pitches, La Sportiva put in a removable PU WarmSole insert that prevents the loss of heat through the bottom of the boot. When speed matters, you'll appreciate the ease of the Fast-Lock System and the QuickBuckle upper that allows you to switch from ski to walk mode with the flick of a switch. When in walk mode, these boots provide a hefty 68-degree cuff rotation, perfect for sections of more technical climbing. A LazerGrip Outsole with dual-density rubber positions climbing rubber where you need it for grip, and softer, shock-absorbing rubber under your heel and ball of your foot to allow you to go for longer.

La Sportiva Spitfire 2.0 Alpine Touring Boot La Sportiva Spitfire 2.0 Alpine Touring Boot
Look to La Sportiva's Spitfire Alpine Touring Ski Boot for your all-around ski mountaineering and speed touring pursuits. The Spitfire is surprisingly stiff on the downhill, considering how flexible and light it feels on the uphill. The shell consists of a low-profile Grilamid outer for ultralight durability, and features Vertebra Technology, which employs a carbon-reinforced polymer cuff to keep the boot stiff for the descent. The cuff also gives the Spitfire a killer 68 degree range of motion, resulting in plenty of agility while climbing on ice and rock or skinning up steep switchbacks. La Sportiva also equipped the Spitfire with a Speedfire closure system that works with the Cam Closure System's walk mode for a quick release when you switch from walk to ski mode. The QuickBuckle and EZ Cable ensure a secure fit while skiing that doesn't inhibit the boot's flexibility on the hike up. Inside the boot, you have a removable SkiMo thermo-moldable liner and WarmSole insert, which make the Spitfire one of the warmest two-buckle boots on the market. Despite a relatively wide last, a 2BT Tech Heel minimizes the volume around your heel for a precise fit, too, because nothing's worse than slopping around inside your boot when you're trying to lay down aggressive turns in mixed snow.

Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot
Fresh from our friends on Alpha Centauri (sick mountains there, check 'em out if you haven't), the Scarpa Alien Alpine Touring Boot splits the difference between full-blown rando racing boot and hardcore tourer, with a nylon/carbon shell and cuff that are plenty light enough to crush the skin track while still handling their business on steep faces and in shotgun couloirs. The Alien's most distinguishing feature is the fit. Not many boots can boast a micro-adjustable Boa closure system, but the Alien uses it to secure the foot smoothly and evenly, completely eliminating pressure points and dead spots. Your feet will also dig the HRP Intuition Liner, which is instantly comfortable and offers superb touring performance in any conditions, as well as the UFO Vibram Sole (also recently received from our space friends) which cushions shocks and provides top-notch traction in all kinds of terrain. Of course, what's most important about a lightweight, race-bred touring boot is its uphill performance. The Alien has a 2-piece construction that locks into ski mode and opens with a single A-Light buckle, providing 60 degrees of uphill-touring power and variable degrees of forward lean between 9 and 13 degrees for the way down. When you're locked in ski mode, the Alien's Propulsion Tech System ensures that the cuff remains stiff, giving you all the power and edge grip you need to handle the steep and icy sections that are part of every serious ski descent. Scarpa also gave the Alien a Quick Step-In system, which uses indicators and self-guiding notches to make it easy to step into your tech bindings, even in snowy spots.

The Scarpa Freedom Alpine Touring Boot is packed full of high-tech materials and well-thought features. It has a patented Carbon Core, patented Ride Power Block walk mode, Axial Power Control technologies, and it was toiled over by gram-counting geeks. But, all you need to know is that it's lighter, stiffer, and super-powerful on the downhill. The Overlap closure system delivers a gap-free fit for optimal energy transfer, which also translates to power. No doubt about it, this freeride boot is light as a metaphorical feather, friction-free on the hike up, and an absolute beast on the descent.An anatomic 101mm last gives your foot some wiggle room, which is nice for the climb, and it features Axial Power for lateral stiffness and control. The Intuition liner can be heat molded for a seamless fit and enhanced performance. This precise fit adds to the warmth this liner provides, which you'll notice during those scenery-loving breaks on the summit. The Ride Power Block allows a 27-degree range of motion on the hike and locks down securely for solid downhill performance. Vibram's Mountain Piste sole fits all alpine bindings and is interchangeable with an AT-compatible sole (optional). The Freedom and Freedom SL make up Scarpa's hard-charging freeride line.

Scarpa Freedom RS Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Freedom RS Alpine Touring Boot
Last year's Freedom SL was the biggest, baddest boot that Scarpa had ever made, so what did Scarpa go and do this year' Oh, just came up with an even burlier and beefier offering that can climb like a goat and shred like a freeride boot, so you can charge lines that used to be reserved for jump-turning weight weenies. Called the Freedom RS (Rocket Sauce' We're not sure.), the new boot is nominally an alpine touring boot, but that designation is belied by the 130 flex, carbon-reinforced Pebax Rnew shell, and race-inspired polyamide cuff that put a premium on downhill awesomeness. When you're skiing, the RS feels like a pure alpine boot, thanks in part to the reinforced race-style upper of the Intuition Cross Fit Ride RS liner, but its Ride Power Block XT Ski/Hike switch gives you 25 degree of killer cuff rotation, so you can make short work of skintracks and ridge hikes. The burliness of the Power Block gives you a rock-solid feel when you're punching big faces at high speed, and the removable spoiler and adjustable forward lean let you customize your setup to achieve maximum uphill efficiency and downhill power. Around your feet and ankles, the Cross Fit Ride liner provides heat-moldable comfort, and the four micro-adjustable buckles let you fine tune the fit for all-day comfort and skiing precision. Scarpa topped the RS off with a big ol' power strap to let you drive your skis as hard as you can handle and also made sure the grippy Vibram Mountain Plus tech soles were removable, so you can pop them off and replace them with traditional alpine soles if you're spending the week terrorizing in-bounds terrain.

What's the use in schlepping your backcountry setup to the top of gnarly chutes and untouched pillow lines if your boot can't hang on the descent' The Scarpa Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot carries to your throne as King of the Mountain while balancing weight and hard-charging performance. The burly 120 flex index and four-buckle design offer a more aggressive ride than the standard Freedom, but the SL is almost a pound lighter thanks to the stiff, light Pebax Rnew shell with Advanced Injection Technology. The boot features a Ride Power Block walk mode that delivers 27 degrees of frictionless range of motion for efficient climbing and easily locks back into ski mode for rippin' power transmission on the downhill. Long gone are the days when you had to cram your tootsies into torturous race-style boots to get the performance you need. The 101mm anatomic last provides a precise and sensitive fit for medium width feet, while the heat-moldable Intuition Speed Ride liners wrap your feet in buttery comfort usually reserved for footwear other than ski boots. The Freedom SL slips effortlessly into all AT and tech (TLT) bindings with the rugged, lugged Vibram Mountain Plus sole, but for skiers who occasionally catch a bad case of ride-the-chairlift-itis, you can swap for the Vibram Mountain Piste sole (sold separately) and click into what those resort people call "ahllll-pine biiin-dings," or however the name of that strange contraption is pronounced. Look, the Freedom SLs know you'll be spending most of your time on backcountry adventures and grinding in the skintrack, but chairlifts happen to the best of us from time to time. These boots won't judge.

The Scarpa Women's Freedom SL Alpine Touring Boot is Queen of the Mountain in the Scarpa freeride line. It's the burliest, with a 120 flex index, but almost a pound lighter than the standard Freedom. The SL also uses a lighter Intuition liner and more aggressive sole. Compared to Scarpa's touring boots, the Freedom SL is more versatile (added alpine capability) and is stiffer and more powerful, but it does weigh more than the Maestrale or F1. It has a Ride Power Block that delivers frictionless motion for efficient climbing and locks in back support for power transmission on the downhill. For the woman who needs a boot that can charge off the lift in alpine bindings or slip efficiently into the backcountry with tech (TLT) bindings, the Freedom SL has few equals.Rather than rebadge the men's version with a little pink and a soft flex, Scarpa's engineers made the last a little smaller and the cuff a little lower to match the shape and size of a woman's foot and calf. The Pebax Rnew shell overlaps for a gap-less fit. Its Carbon Core technology wraps it around a bomber carbon frame for lightweight and allover stiffness for precision control. The Intuition FR Speed liner boot is molded with the shell for a seamless fit and powerful performance, key in making the distinction between a competent alpine/AT boot and one that kills it. The 101mm anatomic last features Axial Power Control for lateral stiffness and sensitivity.The interchangeable Vibram sole gives you lugged tenacity when hiking over scree or down-climbing into a rocky chute--the boot comes with the Rockered Mountain Plus sole for AT and tech bindings, but the Mountain Piste sole is available separately for those who rip on alpine bindings, too. You'll feel the advantage in an instant and respond with a peaceful mind. After all, you don't want to charge down a finger chute with already-frayed nerves.

Scarpa Maestrale Alpine Touring Boot Scarpa Maestrale Alpine Touring Boot
Scarpa's Maestrale 1. 0 Alpine Touring Boot is the best-selling AT boot of all time, and it's back for this winter plus some attitude and minus a few ounces. It's been trimmed down to just over three pounds, but kept the 39 of cuff rotation, 100 flex rating, and 101mm last that made it such a capable, comfortable boot on the ascent as well as the descent. The most significant upgrade is the new Mirage Pro ski/walk mode, which uses two locking pins for bombproof stability on the way down and makes for easier switching between climbing and descending modes. Scarpa's also hooked the Maestrale up with a stiff, powerful Evo V-Frame cuff and a heat-moldable Intuiation Pro Flex G liner that'll give you seasons of serious comfort and warmth after a quick trip to the bootfitter. A smooth, consistent, and progressive flex is seriously important if you're going to chow down on big-time terrain, so the Maestrale's been designed with Scarpa's exclusive Axial Alpine closure: the stiff Pebax tongue hinges at the toe of the boot and actually pivots to the side, making it easy to get the boot on and off and giving you total control of the boot's volume all the way through the forefoot. You won't have to sweat pinched or sloppy feet, as each buckle pulls the tongue in instead of clamping it shut more tightly, letting the tongue flex naturally and predictably. The buckles themselves are made of lightweight magnesium, and the top one features a Tour-Lock clasp that keeps the bale securely in the ladder, even when unbuckled, for easy re-buckling when you're ready to shred. There is a Fitting Indicator System to help line up the Dynafit Quick Step-In tech fittings with your bindings, and a Vibram Cayman rubber sole to take the pucker factor out of traversing exposed rock and ice; yeah, the Maestrale has it all.

Scott Superguide Carbon GTX Alpine Touring Boot Scott Superguide Carbon GTX Alpine Touring Boot
You and your Scott Superguide Carbon Ski Boots have a bright future filled with powder-filled tours and big, backcountry descents. Scott designed the Superguide for the skier that would rather ski boilerplate in the backcountry, rather than shell out three bills to stand in lift lines for nearly an hour just to ski elbow-to-elbow with tourists and park rats. The Superguide is a dedicated backcountry boot with a stiff flex, excellent cuff rotation, and a Gore-Tex liner to keep your feet dry, no matter what.Scott has been producing some serious backcountry boots ever since the company acquired Garmont a few years back, but with a Gore-Tex liner, carbon inlays, and an aggressive 125 flex, the Superguide is anything but a rehash of old Garmont Designs. Skiing in the backcountry means you'll be spending about 90 percent of your time going up, so the 60-degree cuff rotation will be a welcome companion when you're setting an efficient skintrack. When wind-scoured ridgelines make skinning sketchy, and somewhat impossible, the aggressively lugged Vibram sole will come into play to give you the traction needed to gain the summit safely. And when it's time to rip skins and point your skis down, lock the three Ergal buckles down, secure the power strap, and step into your tech bindings with confidence thanks to the Dynafit-certified tech inserts.
