    Salomon MTN Explore Ski Boot - Women's

    Designed to remain nimble on the up, comfortable during long approaches, and dependable on the descent, Salomon's Women's MTN Explore Boot is a solid offering any backcountry-roaming lady will appreciate. A performance-oriented 98-millimeter last and 90 flex is ideal for lighter, intermediate to advanced lady rippers, while the generous 63° range of motion in walk mode makes short work of bootpacks and long skintracks.

    Salomon built the shell around its Sensifit shell technology, which eliminates needless materials throughout the shell but reinforces it in key areas to maintain a progressive and responsive flex while skiing. When coupled with the lightweight carbon spine, the MTN Explore delivers big on the descent, without sacrificing an ounce of performance on the ascent. The women's-specific liner and cuff is shaped to match narrower legs and calves and is slightly shorter in height to better fit the female leg. And if that wasn't enough, Salomon made the liner heat moldable to ensure a precise and snug fit through the heel, arch, and toe box.

  • A backcountry-specific boot built for accessing remote lines
  • 90 flex is suitable for intermediate to advanced lady rippers
  • 98mm last offers a performance-oriented fit
  • 63° range of motion in walk mode for efficient ascents
  • Liner is heat moldable for a snug and precise fit
  • Carbon spine reduces weight while keeping the boot stiff
  • Lugged rubber sole crawls up icy bootpacks and rocky ridges

  • Hey it's brad from back country skiing canada calm today we're here to talk about a new ski from soft 2016 this is the solid mountain explorer 95 ski and. As the name suggests it's 95 millimeters. Under the foot and it's got 130 in the. Shovel so nice and fat for powder and some early rise and 116 in the tail that's for the 177 length ski it weighs. 1,400 grams per ski so twenty-eight hundred grams prepare and that again is the 177 length so it's a really lightweight ski ideal for ski touring it comes in a few different sizes 169 177. 184 centimeter lengths and the turn radius ranges from sixteen point five meters to eighteen point eight meters now the mountain explorer 95 is a full. Sandwich sidewall construction it uses utilizes utility rocker which is basically tip rocker up front underfoot. You've got camber and then the tail it's a relatively flat tail it's a 3d full. Wood core this reduces weight and maintain stability and control and this. Uses the cfx super fibers which is basically 60% carbon and 40% of flax. Laminate and so this increases your dampening it also uses what Solomon. Calls the g-spot technology and this is basically a combination of side cut and rocker profile in places the edge hold directly underfoot so you've got better edge hold on the groomers and also in skinning up hill it's got a built in. Skin clip in the tail here as you can. See and in the tips it's got Solomon's honeycomb. Construction this is the same construction you're gonna find on the qvc lab skis we reviewed last year over. Here and also on the q 98 that reviews. Over here and the q 105 that reviews. Over here as well in this technology basically lightens the tip and tail. Up for improved swing weight and it as well. Gives the ski no chatter virtually no. Chatter on hardpack and groomer conditions and I'd have to say Solomon's one of the few ski manufacturers this really mastered this these skis just have minimal chatter on hardpack wears other skis with this early rise they chatter all over the place and start skating out on you so I'm really a big fan of this honeycomb tip and tail design the other. Think that you need to know is that this also comes in a smaller width it comes in an 88 underfoot so that's the mountain explorer 88 ski and overall I'd say this is a really good lightweight ski for ski touring it's built for ski touring but it doesn't sacrifice anything on the downhill 90 95 underfoot. Is a good length for skiing resort and also out of bounds deeper days you might want to go a little wider but if you're more of a resort skier than the mountain explorer 88 ski would be the one for you this ski retails for $749 canadian and. It's new this year from salomon that's the salomon mountain explorer 95 skis highly recommend it for other things back country skiing blogs forums gear. Reviews competitions routes go to.

    Dynafit Beast 98 Ski - Women's

    Finding the best snow a week after the last storm requires some additional effort. When those sheltered north-facing couloirs seem like the best bet, step into the Dynafit Women's Beast 98 Ski as you get ready for the long skin into your line. The ski is built around a stout ash and poplar wood core that helps save weight during the skin up and maintains stability when you're skiing aggressively on bigger terrain. The ski's 98mm waist puts an emphasis on versatility, so it'll handle everything from windboard at the top, sheltered pow in the middle, to a little bit of the crusty stuff when the apron starts to twist to the east. The Beast isn't your typical backcountry ski, though—its Double Elipse profile consists of a full rocker profile to give the ski a predictable and playful feel as you enter and exit a turn.

  • Versatile backcountry ski ideal for powder-seeking tours
  • Midfat 98mm waist makes the most of variable conditions
  • Full rocker profile has a floaty and predictable feel
  • Full sidewall construction is durable and stable
  • Ride Tip helps reduce chatter when conditions turn firm
  • Carbon and fiberglass laminates increase torsional rigidity

  • Hi this is hub with back country calm out. Enjoying a beautiful spring day and the Wasatch mountains here near our home base in park city utah I'm standing here with the beast 16 binding we alluded to this a little bit earlier in the year that we are going to be one of the few actually the only online retailer in. North america that's going to be allowed to carry this binding we're gonna have. Roughly a hundred pairs for the fall winter 13-14 season it's a very limited. Release there's 2,500 worldwide 850 in north america and a hundred of those are gonna be here at back country calm i want. To go through a few of the technical aspects of the beast binding because it's obviously quite a bit different than a lot of the dena fit products that you've seen in the past first thing I'd like to kind of mention is obviously you can tell it still has the tech inserts that we've come to know and love from the dena fit brand which allows you great freedom of motion when you're hiking uphill there's nothing there's no resistance points as you're climbing also you're climbing more off the ball of your foot as opposed to having a pivot point that's a little further in the front which feels like more of a natural walk motion so as with a lot of. The other dena fit bindings this button is going to allow you to enter the binding by simply pressing down on it the teeth will open up and then you'll allow you to sit into the tech inserts in the front of your boot now when you're actually going into walk mode this throw would go forward which. Prevents the toe piece from actually pivoting now when you do go into ski mode and you put your throw back in place here you will actually have the binding that's gonna pivot laterally in the front which is something completely new for dena fit and it's going to allow you a lot better release in terms. Of lateral release as well as vertical release from the binding now on the heel. Of the binding obviously this looks quite a bit bigger than anything that we've seen from dena fit in the past and as i mentioned before the dena fit. Binding even though it's quite a bit burly are looking it still is keeping the weight you know shaved down at night 35 grams is still a really lightweight binding for the amount of safety. Protection and performance that you're going to get out of this piece now the first thing that obviously you're going to notice is the pins have changed from a round pin they've had in the past with all the dena fit tech bindings to an oval eyes pin now the oval eyes pin is going to have more surface area so it has greater contact with the boot and with greater contact with the boot you'll be able to transfer the energy a lot easier to the ski and it's going to give you a lot more lateral rigidity on the downhill now when you're actually going to go you know if i was going to step into this binding and go into ski mode all i would simply do is step in you'd be locked in and ready to go now when we're gonna go into tour mode you would engage the front of the binding and then all you do is pull this first throw down and it's going to lock out. Both the brake and put in your primary climbing post for your uphill mode now. You have a secondary climbing post which. Actually will flip over and you can easily flip it over with a pole and it locks into place on top of the secondary climbing post it's easier to just you can pop it out with your pole get it back in place like that the other things that you're going to notice right off the bat is the increased size of the. Spring in the rear of the binding now this does have a release value of 16 as I've mentioned before which is not dim standard because no tech bindings at this point are actually din released standard but what is known as its release value so it's going to be very comfortable to that if you're familiar with a din setting the other thing is obviously it does have two points of adjustment here for your din which is going to adjust the upper spring and then as well as your lateral release which is going to be adjusted from the rear of the binding now when you want to go out get your skins off and everything you're done at the top all you do is pop this right out-of-place click it back step in and you're ready to go now the. Other really important factor here is the elasticity of the entire binding in the past a concern has been the people you know if they were coming off a large air or really compressing on the tail coming out at a high speed turn but the pins can actually move a little bit in the back of the boot which generally speaking is not a problem with this new rear piece and front pivoting a toe piece it. Actually has an elasticity to the entire binding that will keep the pins at a constant pressure with the rear of your boot so you never have to worry about pre releasing from this binding this is the beast 16 binding we're really excited to be the exclusive online retailer for dena fit in north america to offer this to the consumer if you. Have any more questions about the binding about the process of mounting the boots and bindings and skis together feel free to call our gear heads, and they can answer any questions that you may have on this any dena fit product or any other product that we have a back country comm.

    Scarpa Gea Alpine Touring Boot - Women's

    Scarpa's Gea Alpine Touring Boot is already a best-seller due to its proven design at an affordable price, and while some ski companies simply change the color of ski boots each season, Scarpa made the Women's Gea Alpine Touring Boot better than ever for the new season. This year, the Gea is remarkably lighter, comfier, and more secure than ever before. A 100 flex and 101mm last make it a great option for skiers taking their first tour into the backcountry, but it'll also serve lighter veterans who value comfort over precision.

    Scarpa updated the Gea with a Grilamid construction to ensure long-lasting stiffness and durability without much weight—it's not as stiff or light as carbon, but that's how Scarpa kept the price down on this boot. The tongue is still flexible Pebax to ensure a smooth, progressive forward flex during the descent. Other updates include a thermo-moldable Intuition liner that boot-fitters can heat up to mold to your foot's exact shape for even more comfort, and the Vibram rubber sole has a new tread pattern specifically designed for rocky summits. The Speedlock Plus ski/walk mode is also new for this season and is designed to reduce play between the shell and cuff for a more rigid feel while you ski.

  • Scarpa's best-selling ski boot for backcountry skiing
  • 100 flex is forgiving yet responsive in pow and on hardpack
  • 101mm last ensures comfort for long days in the backcountry
  • Speedlock Plus ski/walk mode is friction free and rock solid

    La Sportiva Sparkle 2.0 Alpine Touring Boot - Women's

    Sure, you don't have much trouble smoking everyone in your group on daily dawn patrols and all-day backcountry missions, but if your boot can't stand up to your aggressive skiing style, what use does it serve? For women who like ripping the descent as hard as they charge up the skintrack, the La Sportiva Sparkle 2.0 provides the optimal balance of lightweight functionality and expert downhill performance.

    The reshaped shell now accommodates a far wider variety of feet and has a beefed up flex. Four Pegasus buckles with an optional power strap allow you to dial in your fit so you can capitalize on every ounce of that stiff flex in techy couloirs and wide-open powder fields. 60-degree cuff rotation and a comfortable EZ Thermo heat-moldable liner keep feet moving comfortably on long days, and the three preset forward lean positions can be selected according to your preference. The bottom line is that this boot is perhaps the stiffest, most responsive boot in the lightest, fastest package you can get—oh, and by the way, your friends might appreciate a head start on both ends.

  • Send skimo missions with these stiff and light women's boots
  • Grilamid tongue with Vertebra tech provides 115 flex

  • Hey it's brad from back country skiing canada calm and today we're going to talk about the last sport team of specter 2.0 alpine touring boot this. Replaces the original spectrum boot which we reviewed a few years back that can be found over here this is still the. Lightest 4 buckle boots on the market it weighs in at 1400 45 grams or about. Three pounds three ounces that's four half pair size 27 and a half sizing. Comes in from 25 all the way to 35 sorry 31.5 in half sizes the boot is a little. But stiffer this year it's got a 115 flex rating which is about five percent stiffer than previous version the shell. Is made of grille made and the cuff is p back so that's what makes this boot so light again it's four buckles so it's a pretty light boot considering it's a four buckle boot it's also now compatible with alpine bindings tech. Bindings and tr2 bindings so that's a new feature as well what is the same on. This boot is the low profile Pegasus. Buckles really simple easy cam device to use they don't pop out when you're using the boot takes a little bit of getting used to using them because they are so innovative but once you get used to using them they're pretty easy to use. On a day-to-day basis thermo moldable. Easy liner is the same as well and also the 60-degree cuff rotation so a really huge range of motion in walk mode and. What i love about the less marked eva's in the original version in this version is you don't have to unbuckle the boot to get that range of motion i keep the boot totally buckled up i might open this one up just to get the blood flow again but in fully buckled mode you can. Get that sixty degrees which is pretty incredible the sole on the 2.0 is a. Vibrant sole it's got the harder the. Harder sole in the yellow locations and the softer soul in the black location so that you can grip on a rock better and not wear down the tip and toe what is. New is well in the 2.0 version is a roomier toe box the last sport team has always had a really roomy toe box this time it's even roomier I've had to put an insert in to take up some of that room because it was just so much room for me but nice feature because you can. Wheel the toes keep them warm the pivot point as well it used to be removable with an allen key now it's built-in it's fixed which is great because i did lose the pivot point once at a lodge which was not the most opportune time so now that's a solid feature which is great color scheme is. New as well I'm digging it i think it's. A great color scheme for the boot nice and vibrant and lots of fun to wear it's also 5% stiffer as i said before. And you can definitely feel that when. Ski touring and it's a nice feature price on this is 779 canadian 679 us so. It's a pretty reasonably priced boot considering it's such a lightweight boot and it's got all these great features and yet it still skis the hill so I've. Ski turret in this the previous version the last 14 is spectre original promote. Two and a half three years i think now on the version 2.0 and it's a I'd say better than the last version they've they've improved some features but you can tour in this you can ski the hill and it kind of does it also it's one of my favorite boots that I've ever toured in or skied in period the women's. Version is the sparkle and it's got a nice color colorway as well if you're. Looking for a really light boot and you. Don't want to compromise anything on the down you want a good fit you want huge. Flex range you want a lightweight boot and optimal performance then I'd highly recommend the last sportive spectre and the last 14 of spectre 2.0 which is the new version so highly recommend this boot check it out if you're in the market for an 80 boot that you also wanna ski the resort and occasionally for more bug reviews go to. Backcountry ski in canada calm and everything else back country you'll find it there as well thanks.

    K2 Talkback 88 Ski - Women's

    As the middle child in K2's women's backcountry-specific ski lineup, the Talkback 88 Ski has the versatility to tackle long alpine missions or quick spring laps with equal zeal. Its narrower 88-millimeter waist won't weight you down on the skintrack, and, when paired with the rockered tip and tail, offers up just the right amount of flotation in softer snow. Since every backcountry adventure isn't always powder-filled, underfoot camber gives this ski a reliable edge hold on any firmer snow you may encounter.

    K2 shaved some weight of the Talkback 88 this season, yet managed to maintain excellent downhill performance when it comes time to strip skins. A Titanal spine and carbon reinforcement is to thank for this ski's impressive power and stability, while the paulownia wood core is responsible for its efficiently light weight on steep ascents. K2 completed the Talkback with snow-shedding topsheets to ensure that you aren't weighted down by piles of powder as you head back up the skinner for lap four of the day.

  • Lightweight touring ski to crush steep ascents and style steep lines
  • 88mm waist for quick ascents and fun, nimble descents
  • Rockered tip and tail add float in softer snow
  • Underfoot camber reliably holds an edge on unexpected ice patches
  • Titanal spine and carbon reinforcement delivers power and stability
  • Paulownia wood core is efficient on ascents and strong on descents
  • Hydrophobic topsheets dump snow when you're skinning

    Arc'teryx Procline Lite Boot - Women's

    With the ability to climb like a mountaineering boot and navigate technical ski mountaineering descents, the Arc'teryx Women's Procline Lite Boot is a true alpine workhorse that will move up granite-strewn ridges and glacial ice with ease and remain rigid when you're laying turns down a hanging snow field or narrow couloir. It's clear at first glance that the Procline isn't your standard AT boot—its split cuff, uniquely shaped shell, and integrated boot gaiter all indicate that this boot loves to ascend. In fact, the Procline brings a whole new level of uphill performance to the table with 360 degrees of cuff mobility (75 degrees fore and aft and 35 degrees laterally) to deliver an unsurpassed feel while skinning, bootpacking, or climbing sections of vertical rock and ice. And if that wasn't enough, the Procline gets an extra bit of help on the up thanks to a lugged Vibram sole and reinforced toe cap to protect the shell from shrapnel when front pointing.

    The construction of the Procline consists of a Grilamid shell more akin to a traditional AT boot to give the boot the solid downhill performance necessary for skiing and a split Grilamid cuff to save weight and enhance climbing mobility. Where the Procline really sets itself apart, though, is with its integrated corder gaiter, which is durable and waterproof to ensure reliable coverage in high alpine environs. Beneath the attached gaiter is a heat-moldable EVA liner with optional lace closure to ensure a precise and comfortable fit. The buckle system of the Procline consists of two aluminum latches and a cam-locking power strap that can be quickly secured without having to deal with traditional hook-and-loop straps during transitions.

  • A women's-specific boot for ski mountaineering
  • Split cuff delivers 360 degrees of articulation
  • Attached corder gaiter resists wear and is waterproof
  • Procline Lite liner is heat moldable for a precise fit
  • Two adjustable buckles lie flat to reduce catching on pants
  • Cam-locking power strap ensures a quick and secure fit
  • Lugged Vibram sole climbs well on rock and packed snow
  • Rubber toe cap enhances durability when front pointing
  • Item #ARC00LO
  • When you're touring and you flick this it's amazing the range of motion obviously that you have without undoing. That top class so it's very precise for. Where you want to put your foot but feels really freaked she's good i guess if you can do this if you want and you loosen it rights up when you're throwing to it makes it even easier the side. To side motion business and kind of see. Here it's on an angle makes it better yeah i like that i just. Kind of want to see if snow entry is any. Issue with this it's a mountaineering boot so times are gonna happen when you do get off your skis obviously and start. Postholing up there's something nasty and big i don't know if he'll be full walk mode like this or not but likely so. You can see i mean that keeps a lot of the snow out which is really nice that tall boots all gator and then. There's that cuff area so without doing. Anything to it i just clamp that yep. Clamps i don't think i can feel it but it's in. There it's definitely in there so i. Don't know yeah but other than that i. Mean boots sure does skin nice that's very comfortable and free feeling and. Light and on off-camber type stuff it. Sure allows you to keep a full skin contact if you choose so yeah so far so. Good okay so now it's time for the book. Review inside instead of in the rain so. There it is size 27 and there's our weight pretty. Simple little scale one boot 1.3 6. Kilograms so super light obviously. Especially when you're looking at something that is as strong as skiing boot as it is so that's nice so good weight on the boot now, and we look at the liners you'll see there are two liners that this boot is using this. Is the support liner the support liner. Are they're stronger liner it's nice just. A good flex motion in the back of flexes. Going in the back so you can get lots of easily easy angulation with this boot is. The cuff of the boot certainly allows it, so we don't want the liner to restrict that different densities of foam nice. And stiff through the top and the tongue so lots of support through their nice moldable down through the bottom which is great and then obviously our character being a mountaineering company they're thinking about using liners like this if you have to be drawing your liners you're wearing them alone not in a boot you can see you've got a rubber. Bottom to that boot which is going to. Give you a lot better traction if necessary but just durability as well so. Into the actual boot itself the plastics this is where all the magic is in this boot a few things that i really. Like i love how dry this boot is with this. Zipper that does up from the front of the boot it keeps this entire structure. Quite watertight as you can see that you. Tough and that gator around the top it's going to keep a lot of snow out so when you have that boot opened and you are in tour mode and a lot of other boots you. Collect a lot of snow through here through buckles and into the boot so you have a lot of water entry into this whole boot system that's not the case with this. Which is really nice to see it's in front of the boot as you can see has the rubber rand to it that's a thermoformed. Rand it's not going to pull away from that gives you much better durability. And some add its stickiness if you are. Climbing and using this boot from a mountaineering standpoint to have a hard. Plastic toe that can skate off is not a. Good scenario so having this is going to make a big difference for people its ultimate comfort when they are climbing and not using it with their skis and you. Can see it's a very burly soul the soul that's on there is not one of these super lightweight soles that's going to. Disintegrate in one season of use that's. A full proper vibrational go it's a. Mountaineering sole great to see that. Obviously works with pins it's what it's made for it's the only way it's going to work but from a standpoint of moving in. The mountains it's great to have that security on your feet so all in all i. Have to say that our caraxes nu pro kline. Boot walks as i would expect it to walk. And skis much better so i think it's. Going to be it's its definitely worthy of carrying the arc'teryx name hope you enjoy it.
