Black Diamond Quadrant
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Black Diamond's premier and most versatile alpine touring boot, the Quadrant combines lightweight skinning comfort with stiff freeride performance thanks to a 120 flex, tech binding compatibility and 40-degrees of resistance-free motion. The Quadrants thermoformable, taped-seam liner has been redesigned for 2014 with superior warmth and comfort on all-day, mid-winter tours. The rockered rubber outsole helps the boot pack go smoothly, and the four-buckle design gives you plenty of power when its time to drop.
A premier 4-buckle touring boot with a redesigned fit, the Quadrant defies convention by bringing skiing performance and stiffness previously reserved for freeride boots to the touring weight range.
Having a featherweight touring boot is awesome, but what's the point if you get to the top and find yourself paralyzed with fear because you're afraid your 32-flex tin-foil boots will collapse if you have the audacity to try and make a turn' If you're looking for a little more beef, check out Black Diamond's Quadrant Men's Alpine Touring Boot, which is light--under four pounds per boot--but boasts a burly 120 flex that'll have you ripping big lines even faster than you hiked up them. The liner's been totally redesigned to be warmer, with fully taped seams, and more efficient, with anatomic flex zones for the climb and a smooth-flexing plastic tongue for stiffness on the descent. It's also fully heat moldable, so you can kiss hot spots, pinching, and rubbing goodbye. The Quadrant skis like a burly boot, but it also climbs like a mountain goat. Black Diamond's Triax Pivot frame gives you 40 of cuff rotation for a smooth, natural stride, and the 103mm V-shaped locks gives your foot plenty of room but locks your heel ankle in place for comfortable blister-free touring. Black Diamond finished the Quadrant off with a rockered rubber sole and integrated tech fittings for easy hiking and skinning, and tossed in a beefy power strap for improved downhill performance.
