The Black Diamond Factor MX 130 alpine touring boot has the turgid stiffness required for driving wide skis down steep, cliffy terrain, but when released into walk mode, the cuff pivots like an Air Jordan. The Black Diamond boots have always had great heel hold, and the new Factor has an improved forefoot fit due to the 100mm V last. It's a lot of boot for the skier with a lot of hard charging plans. New Mx Direct Connect technology provides lateral stiffness and 130 flex fore/aft stiffness Both alpine and AT Sole (tech binding compatible) blocks included plus an integrated heel shock absorber 40 degrees of pivot in walk mode 30% lower profile buckles than previous Factor boots 100 mm V-shaped last with 100% thermoformable Direct Connect liner
It's not just the hippies. Freeride skiers with their hair ablaze love the freshies, too, so Black Diamond brings you the brand-new Factor Mx 130 Men's Alpine Touring Boot, a hard-driving freeride boot that's light and nimble enough for climbing yet stiff and strong for bombing downhills. It features a ski/walk mode that gives you the freedom to carry an efficient stride when skinning or bootpacking, but it delivers a burly 130 flex and lateral stiffness for the gnarliest, high-speed descents. Because the ski boot is the most personal of ski gear, the Factor Mx offers you two customization features: a heat-moldable Power liner and interchangeable sole blocks. The liner hugs your every foot curve for maximum energy efficiency and comfort, and you can swap from DIN-compatible sole blocks for a day at the resort to AT/Tech-compatible for a dawn-patrol powder mission. The Triax Pro frame and overlap construction mean smooth yet rigid forward flex for high performance on the descent and ascent. Capable in-resort, hucking meat and stomping it, yet equipped for backcountry excursions for those sick lines calling your name, the Factor gives you that added climbing convenience without compromise.

Both an Alpine DIN-compatible sole (shown) and an AT Sole Block compatible with frameless bindings are included.
