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.
99mm FTS Soul 3-Piece Shell - The same 99mm last width and geometry as the Original with a slightly roomier toe box & rubber sole.
Easy On/Off - Tongue fully opens like a convertible, never blocking your foot. Slide your foot in and out easily with comfort in all temperatures.
Flex Rating: 10 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) - Stiffest flex – Our most powerful and responsive energy transfer, while maintaining a smooth, natural ankle flex to eliminate shinbang! You can quickly change your flex by swapping out different # flex tongues.
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!
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.
Adjustable Flex - The boot's flex is rated on a simple scale of 1-10 (10=stiffest). Change a boot's flex by simply switching the tongue (additional tongues sold separately).
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.
Pro Laminate Construction - 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!
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.
Light Weight 3-Piece Shell Construction - Minimalist 3-Piece design eliminates the need for thick, heavy overlapping plastic or bolts for increased quickness & sensitivity, and it is up to 2 lbs / 900 g lighter than some alpine boots.
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 - Cable closure works like a shoelace to eliminate dead spots for a smooth even pressure flex & fit.
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.
