New technical boot for winter alpinism ideal for every type of climbing: ice, mixed, classical mountaineering, ice excursionism. Thanks to its six layer insulating structure, it guarantees excellent heat retention which has been tested even in extreme conditions on Himalayan summits, even if an internal shoe is not used as part of the structure. The watertight gaiter with transversal closure wraps around the foot to ensure the creation of an extra barrier against the cold. It distinguishes itself for its light weight being less than 1000 grams and is not bulky. Underfoot: insulating IBI-Thermo. New exclusive sole with the innovative technology Impact Brake System which absorbs impact, helps during traction and holds back whilst braking.
