If you're the type of skier who doesn't mind moving a little more weight up the skin track for more power on the descent, grab the Salomon Quest Max BC 120 Alpine Touring Boot. This do-it-all boot comes in a 120 flex for resort-crushing stiffness that you can take to the backcountry. In order to lighten up the Quest Max BC, Salomon used Pebax on the lower shell, which is lighter version of polyurethane, then they lightened up the heat-moldable liner for even more savings, and utilized three aluminum buckles to strike a balance between rigidity and weight. Compatible with tech bindings and standard alpine bindings, the Quest Max BC comes fitted with AT soles, but Salomon also included DIN soles if you need them to pull double duty between your touring and resort setups. The extended rubber sole wraps around the edges of the sole to protect the shell of the boot from scuffs and scrapes while hiking. The 50mm power strap offers hard-charging power, and the Backbone+ technology only adds to the power of these burly AT boots. However, the driving force behind these boots is the 24mm oversized pivot, which is designed to increase the power transmission of the boot and help lay wider skis on edge.
For demanding freeriders who put a premium on downhill performance, Salomon's Quest Max BC 120 delivers light weight, exceptional rearward support and lateral transmission, and 44 range of motion for easier backcountry convenience. The boot combines technologies like poyolefine cuff to reduce weight and UV protection along side micro buckles for improved comfort and fit.
Strong and burly, the Salomon Quest Max BC 120 is the no-compromises boot for the dedicated alpine skier looking to expand their range into the backcountry. A freeride orientated boot with a great fit and flex, the Quest Max BC can drive the biggest skis at high speed inbounds or out. With the addition of the sole package, the Quest Max BC 120 can be setup to work in alpine bindings, frame style alpine touring bindings (Marker, Fritschi), or tech bindings (Dynafit). The Quest Max BC 120 has a heat moldable liner as well as a revolutionary heat moldable shell that can accommodate a wide range of foot shapes.
