Product Info

Full Tilt High Five Ski Boots 2013: The Full Tilt High Five Ski Boots provides all-mountain skiers with the responsiveness they’ve always loved , this time with a roomier 102mm fit and a smooth linear flex they never had. Full Tilt has even included its highest performance Quick-Fit Pro liner with Intuition® Foam for maximum power transfer and ankle hold that also molds 100% to your feet for precise control, comfort and warmth like no other.

Product Details

Flex

Flex Rating – 7 (1 Softest – 10 Stiffest)

An all-mountain directed 5 ribbed tongue provides for a versatile, forgiving smooth natural flex. This natural flex is made with a free hinging rear cuff that never bottoms out. Full Tilt tongues are inter-changeable; making it simple enough to swap flexes on-the-fly (extra tongues sold separately). This design also provides even pressure throughout due to the cables that work just like your favorite shoelaces.

Materials

Full Tilt boots are up to 2lbs/900g lighter per pair than other boots due to a minimalistic shell that contains no overlapping plastic or bolts. The thinner plastic also increases the feel and responsiveness, making these boots much quicker than other pairs.

Liner

The Quick Fit™ Pro Liner is Full Tilt’s highest performance moldable liner.

J-Bars create powerful internal ankle hold down.

7mm High Density Intuition® Foam: this closed cell foam is made to transfer power and energy to the shell and is body heat activated to mold 100% to your feet and shell during use or can be instantly heat molded by a shop in minutes.

Powerwrap adds an additional layer of ergonomically shaped High Density Intuition® Foam to wrap around the outside of the upper liner, providing added energy transfer and horsepower to the shell.

Wide Toe: thinner foam in the front of the liner to increase toe space without sacrificing control in the rest of the liner

Stance

102mm Width Last

Full Tilt Influence shell design: influenced by the Original 3-Piece Design, but with its own roomier 102mm fit, and a price that can’t be beat.

Additional Features

Easy On and Off with tongues that open like convertibles and will never block your foot.

Active Bootboard absorbs high speed vibrations and impact.

Wrap Strap user friendly lower closure and 2 upper cables for even shin pressure.

Aluminum buckle macro ladder and micro twist adjustment.

Very excited for season and my first pair of Full Tilts. I am an advanced skier, but feel the High Five model has the right stiff flex for me (6). First chairs and Seth's have really stiff tongues. If I was jumping cliffs or skiing crazy terrain than yes.

Unfortunately, I was not able to fit into these and wound up returning them.

They do appear to have the advertised wider toe box and the lower foot fit was good. My problem was with the the upper part of the boot and I suspect others with high insteps and thick ankles and lower calfs will also have the same issues. Specifically the shell seems very small from the mid-tongue area to the the top of the boot. So much so that was nearly impossible to push the tongue down enough so that edges could clear the shell and engaging the second buckle was very difficult. The top buckle was essentially impossible to engage. Longer bails obviously could have cured this particular symptom but the boots would still be too tight. This was surprising as I did not have the same problem with the Booter, but that model is too soft and would have required a stiffer tongue.

I can see why Full Tilts get good reviews and I really wanted the High 5 to work out. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

      RAD. This is far and away the best boot I've owned, and i have owned some pretty fancy custom made, super expensive blah blah... It performs well-almost as well as the fully custom boot I had made for me, but unlike that boot, it is warm! I ski 50-60 days per year and this boot will be the best purchase i've made in a long time! I use it in the steeps and drops and it soaks the energy up well and still remains responsive enough for park/rails. Absolute essential to heat mold. Buy this boot!!

        Comments about Full Tilt High Five Ski Boots 2013:

        I'm an expert skier coming out of atomic race boots. I normally don't write reviews unless I'm blown away by something and here I am writing a review..... I have seen these boot on the shelf and on the hill but always thought that they looked flimsy and like they wouldn't give you the performance of regular boots. To start off with these boots and the full tilt booster have a very solid buckling system. The other full tilt models have a different system but these are kind of traditional in how they buckle and are very secure with lots of adjustment. The fit is second to none I was blown away on how well they fit in the store!Comfortable right of the shelf and when you get them heat molded there are no hot spots, no rubbing, nothing absolutely the best fit I have ever found. The 102mm last is not to wide the liner fills it up pretty well and when you heat mold them they fill out to your foot and fit perfectly. How they flex and ski is life changing..... the flex is very linear and is progressive so you never feel like you are going to bottom them out. Very quick edge to edge and very very light....the 7 flex on the high five feels about a 110 flex so great for free riders. The tongues are changeable so if its not stiff enough you can change them out for 50 bucks if you need to. Overall the best boots I have ever used I won't go back to regular boots after riding on these. Great power to drive skis best fit ever and super light.... love em! Last thing if you live within a days drive of the Seattle store go in!!! They have the most knowledgeable store staff I have ever met...just awesome.

          this boot is perfect for an expert skier who is too light to handle a 120 flex boot. The Intuition liner is amazing, and the boot is very simple and lightweight. Great powder boot. no shin bangs because of heat molding is perfect

                I've only worn these a couple of times so far, but I really like them. Moderately priced, comfortable for my wider foot, and the liner is fantastic. Very comfortable and warm and conforms easily to your foot and hugs your calf for additional support. I wish the toe buckle was more like the others.

                Very good boot if fitted properly! Got mine cause I have wider feet and higer instep. Forward tilt adjustment would make them perfect, but suit a more modern upright stance just fine. Thats my only gripe and its a small one. Took about 3 runs to get used to. Feel sorry for previous rater because if he bought the #6 tongues he got hosed. The #6 and #7 tongues are identical per Fult Tilt. They just changed the way the rate the influence tongues. #6 is now called#7 and #4 is now called #5. Also any footbed custom or off the shelf can be used in these boots. You need to have them fit by a proper bootfitter though. The liners need to be heated in convection oven too not just heatstacks!

                Comments about Full Tilt High Five Ski Boots 2013:

                Bought High Fives in order to help better fit high instep with some calcium buildup that tongue style boots tend to pressure/hurt. Needed the wider style so I could not go up to the top of the line models.

                Good news is the full wrap and the custom fit left it extremely close fit on the foot so its not sloppy at all in the lower foot and no excessive instep pressure...Great!

                Bad news
                1)these come with a rock hard tongue flex and I had to shell $50 more for a more flexible one (went from 7 to a 6) 2) forward lean is very low and non-adjustable on this model 3) lack of ability to install your own footbed is bad, my foot does not feel as planted to the ski as it should, 4) toe box is very tight, although i could reheat to fix that.

                Overall a good boot for the heat adjustable wrap liner style, but those other factors leave me feeling i have less control that some other boots i have tried.
