Touring Ski Boots
Touring boots are all about saving weight and are made of lightweight plastics, buckles and liners. The lighter the boots the more you compromise the performance.
They have a ‘walk mode’ in the spine of the boot which allows the cuff to be released for walking, giving a large range of motion. Additionally, they have a rockered, rubber sole for better grip.
They are not compatible with Alpine bindings and can only be used with bindings designed to take a lugged sole.
Touring soles usually have Dynafit inserts in the toe and heel to allow you to be able to use a pin binding which is going to save even more weight when travelling uphill.
