Out of Box Flex – 7 ( 1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Custom Flex – This construction enables riders to adjust the support and responsiveness of their boots. And to further secure a rider's feet, this design also features ankle lacing.
Dupont® Surlyn Highback – The highback contributes to the durability and stability of the boot. Combined with additional reinforcements, the highback also aids in dictating its stiffness.
Extra Long Stride (XLS) – This system offers enhanced comfort and longer strides while skinning. Loosening a powerstrap connected to an exoskeleton at the rear of the boot extends the boot's range of motion an additional 8°, resulting in strides that are 20 to 30cm longer.
Thermo Flex – This liner is heat-formed to your foot. It is placed in a special oven that is heated between 90°-110°C. While cooling, the liner is fitted to your foot and will retain its form. Consequently, Deeluxe recommends you have your liners professionally molded to guarantee the perfect fit.
Powerstrap – By securing the calf in place, the Powerstrap adds additional support to a boot's lacing system.
C3 Lacing – Two separate lacing systems allow you to customize the fit and flex of the heel, forefoot, and shaft zones.
Vibram® East Ridge Outsole – Reduced footprint and enhanced cushioning.
Remedy Outsole – This beefy sole has a streamlined silhouette. In addition to reducing weight, this allows crampons to more closely hug the sole. A fade-out profile also minimizes toe and heel drag. Spikes in the toe area offer unrivaled traction while sharp edges aid in traversing. And thanks to a self-cleaning design, the tread is quick to shed snow and ice.
Plastic Backwelt – Features a grooved heel for rocking semiautomatic crampons.
Rubber Rand – Maximizes durability and traction when navigating rocky terrain.
D-Tex Membrane – This waterproof and breathable membrane ensures your feet stay warm and dry.
Waterproof Construction – Precise stitching and a sandwich construction ensure water can't penetrate the boot's shell.
TPS Shield – Available as an accessory, the TPS Shield strengthens a boot's tongue, providing a stiffer flex and additional support.
