Product Details

Fit

Last: 102 mmWider shell for wider and higher volume feet.

Full Tilt Evolution ShellA quantum leap in ski boot design, the FTE is a new shell born from the original DNA of the 3-piece but constructed for those with a wider footprint.

Easy On/OffTongue fully opens like a convertible, never blocking your foot. Slide your foot in and out easily with comfort in all temperatures.

Flex

Flex Rating: 8 (1 soft - 10 stiff)Powerful & responsive energy transfer, while maintaining a smooth, natural ankle motion to eliminate shinbang! You can quickly change your flex by swapping out different flex tongues.

Adjustable FlexThe 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).

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! Optimized for FT's new 45 degree cable positioning for the smoothest flex possible.

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.

Liner

Pro Intuition™ Wrap LinerThe most power transfer and responsiveness of any Intuition™ liner. For maximum customization and warmth.

100% Heat Moldable Intuition®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.

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

PowerwrapAn 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.

WarmUnlike conventional liners, Full Tilt 100% foam construction is air tight with reduced seams to retain body heat.

Shell Materials

3-Piece Shell ConstructionUp to 2 lbs / 900 g lighter than other boots due to its smart and minimalistic 3-Piece design that eliminates the need for thick, heavy overlapping plastic or bolts.

Stance

Forward Lean AdjustmentTool-less forward angle adjustment of 3 mm or 7.6 mm.

45° Heel LockThe best angle for keeping heels in place when pressuring tips and tails.

Buckles

Aluminum 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.

Power Strap

Nylon power strap gives you what you need to get the job done.

Sole

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

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

Dual Material SolesNo slipping getting in-between you and the ground. A firm rubber and a softer TPU material combat wear and keep your feet underneath you on any surface.

Replaceable SolesA removable outsole of polymer construction.
