The Full Tilt
First Chair Ski Boots are the answer to those of you saying, “But I waaant more stiffness!” The First Chair Ski Boots deliver your stiff flex, but it’s a smooth and natural linear flex that overlap models simply can’t achieve. Enjoy the Rubbersole replaceable non-slip natural rubber sole for easy walking on pavement, ice, and slippery club floors. New for 2014 is the Widetrack Buckle system that gives you the Holy-$@#-I'm-in-the-air-better-tighten-my-boot-for-landing ease of control over tightness. The First Chair also features Full Tilt
’s highest performance Quick-Fit Pro Liner with Intuition® foam that molds 100% to your feet for powerful control, warmth, and comfort like no other.
FTS Shell - This reincarnation of the Full Tilt Original shell features a modern toe box shape and replaceable rubber sole for non-slip walking.
Forefoot Width - 99 mm
Flex Rating: 10 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - As stiff as a board and angrier than a feral badger. The power and response is amazing, also similar to a feral badger, and those things can move.
Ribbed Tongue - 100% Ribbed tongue enables smoother, more natural linear flex from your shin to your toe. The tongue bends like a flexible straw, never bottoming out while providing smooth rebound. Spread the word and ring the city bell: NO MORE SHIN BANG!
Pro Intuition® Liner - The most power transfer and responsiveness of any Intuition liner®. All adult Full Tilt boots use authentic Intuition® closed cell foam that is body heat activated to mold 100% to your feet and shell during use, or can be heat molded by a shop in minutes.
Power Wrap - An additional layer of ergonomically shaped High Density Intuition® closed cell foam is wrapped around the outside of the upper liner to provide added energy transfer and horsepower to the shell.
J Bar - A J-shaped piece of foam is added to both sides of the ankle area to dramatically increase ankle hold, keeping your feet perfectly in place for precise control.
A combination of EVA foam layers quickly conform and mold to your foot. 4mm Open Cell foam is warm and comfy, 2mm Soft Density cross linked foam in between, and 7mm High Density Closed Cell foam is firm and responsive, to boot… pun intended!
3-Piece Design - Full Tilt Boots (depending on model) are up to 2lbs lighter than other boots due to their smart and minimalist 3-piece design. This eliminates heavy overlap.
Natural Flex - Traditional boots flex with rivets through the cuff that prevent the boot from engaging in a natural flex. Full Tilt Boots get their flex from the unique 7-ribbed tongue, removing the need for rivets through the cuff, allowing for a natural flex. This was originally designed by former NASA engineers after working on space boots that needed to take the impact of jumping 10 feet in the air with 200lb suits on. Tell me that technology isn’t good enough for you.
Infinite Pivot - Unlike traditional boot designs, the rear cuff of Full Tilt boots never bottoms out. It pivots infinitely forward with your calf for less shell distortion, no shin pain and more control.
Easy On/Off - The front of the shell opens a full 90 degrees to slide your foot in and out with ease in all temperatures. It's like putting slippers on!
Widetrack Buckle - The new adjustment mechanism from Full Tilt, the widetrack buckle is engineered to increase precision and durability while maintaining that I'm-still-skiing-down-this-mountain-right-now single hand tweek of cables. New durable aluminum lever is minimalist and lightweight.
Cables - Full Tilt boots use cable wrap like shoelaces instead of traditional wire bales. Cables give even pressure and increased comfort while eliminating dead spots. Tightening your buckles does not restrict flex, unlike overlap boot designs.
Power Strap - Nylon power strap gives you what you need to get the job done.
Rubbersole - Replaceable rubber soles on the entire toe and heel dramatically increases grip when walking and hiking.
Rigid Boot Board - Firm layer in the sole of the shell maximizes responsiveness and sensitivity.
Customizable - Full Tilt boots are customizable - all parts are sold separately for unlimited personalization and repair using a standard Philips head screwdriver.
Full Tilt products can only be shipped within the U.S.
