Skiers, you’re getting your <3 today, first with the how to and now with this peek at a Lange AT boot for 2010.
Found some info on the 2010 Lange Super Blaster. Looks pretty solid, but as it was on a German site I couldn’t really make out what they were saying using my limited German skills and Google translator. Here’s a sample translation “To the best compromise between comfort and sportiness to find the developers of scanned feet long by several hundred people”. Huh? I can haz touring boot?
It’s got a walk mode, that much I know, but the rest of the details are sketch. As it’s Lange I’m certain it will be a top-notch boot. Two things seem odd to me though:
1) “Gecko-sole” – not sure why they didn’t go with Vibram??
2) Lack of Dynafit/tech fitting means the hardcore guys are out of luck with this one.
Seems like a minimal good first effort, will be interesting to see if the market responds positively, allowing them to put a bit more time and effort into developing more alpine touring focused boots.
