La Sportiva Spitfire
Here's what other sites are saying:
Look to La Sportiva's Spitfire Alpine Touring Ski Boot for all-around ski mountaineering and speedy touring. The Spitfire is surprisingly stiff on the downhill for how flexible and light it feels on the uphill. Its G-Shell consists of a low-profile Grilamid outer for ultralight durability, and Vertebra Technology uses a carbon reinforced polymer cuff to ensure performance while driving wide skis. A CRP Cuff gives the Spitfire an amazing 68 degree range of motion for maximum agility while climbing on ice and rock or skinning up steep switchbacks. La Sportiva also equipped the Spitfire with a Fast Lock System that works with the Cam Closure System's walk mode for a quick release when you switch from walk to ski mode. The QuickBuckle and EZ Cable ensure a secure fit while skiing that doesn't inhibit the boot's flexibility on the hike up. Inside the boot, you have a removable Palau thermo-moldable EVA liner and WarmSole insert, which make the Spitfire one of the warmest two-buckle boots on the market. Despite a wide last, A 2BT Tech Heel minimizes the volume around your heel for a precise fit.
As a crossover performer, the Dynafit Spitfire Alpine touring boots can rando-race in the morning and freeride in the afternoon. Designed for ski moutaineers who want reduced weight, but not reduced skiing performance, the Spitfire is a very solid choice. -- Compatible with all tech bindings.
