Product Info

The Full Tilt Descendant 8 Ski Boots could probably be called the "Ascendant 8" - it is essentially the same boot as the 10-flex Ascendant with a softer 8 flex tongue and no tech fittings. It still sports the relaxed 102 mm Evolution last, has the same shell and walk mode system, but substitutes in a Pro Intuition wrap liner instead of the lighter-weight touring liner found in the Ascendant. The "8" flex is arguably Full Tilt s best all-mountain flex, with a bit more give for those backcountry exploration days and deep snowpacks.

Product Details

Fit

Last: 102 mmRelaxed last for wider and higher volume feet and all-day comfort.

Evolution ShellThe Full Tilt Evolution Shell adds much needed depth to the Full Tilt line. Designed for those with a wider foot, the Evolution shell incorporates a higher volume fit and a 102mm last.

MoldableUtilizing the QuickFit™ System, all Full Tilt boots – shells included – can be molded to the exact needs of your foot. Not all feet are the same; Full Tilt prides itself on creating boots that allow a personalized, 1-to-1 fit experience.

Easy On/OffThe front of the shell opens a full 90º to slide your foot in and out with ease in all temperatures. Like putting on slippers!

Flex

Flex: 8Full Tilt's most popular freeride flex is suitable for strong and fast skiers.

Ribbed Tongue100% 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. No more shin bang!

Adjustable FlexThe boot’s flex is rated on a simple scale of 4-12 (12=stiffest). Change a boot’s flex by simply switching the tongue.

Liner

Pro Liner | Responsive PowerThe Pro Liner’s laminate is specifically engineered to provide the most energy transfer to the shell while maintaining warmth in a custom moldable fit.

Foam (Listed From Foot to Shell)4mm Open Cell: Ensures warmth and comfort straight out of the box. / 2mm Intuition™ MD: Medium density and hardness for a solid balance of comfort and performance. / 7mm Intuition™ HD Foam: High density and firm for a responsive and efficient transfer of energy.

Power WrapAn additional layer of ergonomically shaped EVA is wrapped around the outside of the upper liner to increase energy transfer and horsepower to the shell.

J-BarsAn additional j-shaped piece of foam is inserted internally on both sides of the ankle area to dramatically increase ankle hold down, to keep your feet perfectly in place for precise control.

Shell Materials & Design

Shell and CuffThermo Plastic Urethane

TongueGrilamid

Infinite PivotUnlike traditional designs, the rear cuff never bottoms out. It pivots infinitely forward with your calf for less shell distortion, no shin pain and more control.

Ski/Walk Mode

Walk ModeFor hot laps on the skin track or dancing until last call in the bar. Flip the lever up to ascend with ease. And when it’s time to send it, flip the lever down, lock the cuff in place, and push into the fluid, progressive flex you’ve come to expect from Full Tilt.

Buckles

Ladder BucklesThe ladder buckle features an intuitive, easy to remember, macro-size adjustment, plus a micro-twist for fine adjustment with a light, easy-to-handle aluminum lever.

45° Heel LockKeep heels where they belong. Placing the middle buckle at an optimal 45 degree angle creates a solid lock for the heel to stay put when pressuring the tips and tails of the skis.

Power Strap

Cinch Power Strap

Bootboard & Footbed

Shock Absorber Boot BoardSoft rubber layer in the sole of the shell absorbs vibrations, impact and shock for a smooth ride.

Sole

GripWalk Outsoles EquippedDesigned for better purchase on unstable & slippery terrain. The convex shape and ribbed tread add both comfort & grip for getting from house to hill to peak!

Mid-GripWhether you are climbing grated stairs or scrambling on top of a mountain, a dual material or single material mid-grip gives you the confidence to stay on your feet.
