A she tool for backcountry powder shots, the Trance is designed for the consummate female tele skier, who needs a lightweight, high performance boot that can excel as much on the up as on the down. Trance's cuff opening, rear spoiler, liner and more aggressive stance angle address the specific performance and fit needs of a woman. Built on our Triax Tour Frame Flex 90 with a MidStiff bellows, the Trance also has a Women's Efficient Fit Liner that is thermoformable for a custom fit. Compatible with three pin bindings. Features: Triax Tour Frame Technology with Pebax for a stiff yet forgiving structure Flex 90 with Mid Stiff Bellows. Mechanically integrated skiwalk mode securely toggles onoff and offers eight degrees of forward lean customization in three settings.

It is the unique combination of these three areas that makes BD's boots unrivaled in comfort and uncompromising in performance. Fit: Insulating boot boards... Strobeled, true lasted liners... Unique custom foot beds... Exclusive BOA closure system these are all integral parts to BD's boots ground up Net Shape Fit Technology, in which the boots' anatomical shell construction is based off of the net foot shape after taking into account the interior boot board, footbed and liner layers. To ensure an optimized fit and performance, BD's liners come in four boot specific styles: Power Fit, Power Fit Light, Efficient Fit, and Efficient Fit Light. Another key to the boots' exceptional overall fit and comfort is the liners' proprietary, engineered foam, which provides comfort, customizable fit and long lasting durability in a fully thermoformable, true lasted system. Anti Microbial Liner fabric is smooth for comfort and easy inout Multi density internal Achilles pad insert Zero compaction Strobel liner construction for long lasting volume True lasted construction for out of box performance fit or can be thermoformed for total customization Elastic bridge for rearward flex during touring Performance, custom foot bed is thermoformablethough we still recommend true arch support for most people Reflective foil for an excellent radiant thermal barrier Boot board is removable, customizable and insulating The shells of BD's A.T. and Freeheel Telemark boots are built using alpine overlap construction, which produces a natural progressive flex and ankle articulation to drive and steer skis, as well as absorb terrain. This true progressive flex results in an immediate transfer of power with the sensitivity to absorb and feel something an unnatural, mechanically obstructed, traditional tongue construction cannot deliver. The overlap construction also yields and unrestricted upper cuff for touring efficiency not possible with boot shells made from outdated designs and tooling. The shells are made with Pebax or engineered polyurethane and offer a stiff yet sensitive structure. BOA Closure System The Boa Lacing Boot System comprises three primary components: The Boa Lace Reel The lace cable ends are fixed to a spool within the miniature Boa Reel. When the knob is rotated, the lace is wound on to the spool as the boot tightens. The gear train in the reel develops significant mechanical advantage so a great deal of tensioning force is created with very little effort. The Lace Cable The replaceable lace is a miniature cable that is made especially for the Boa System. It has been developed and refined over several years and many thousands of days of use. It is woven of 49 individual strands of aircraft grade stainless steel and then compressed to create a very smooth surface with exceptional strength. The lace cables are cut to length with proprietary Boa equipment and the ends are welded into a small ball to keep the strands from unraveling and to provide easy feeding through the lace guides. Elongated Lace Guides The elongated lace guides distribute closure force perfectly across the eyestays of the boot creating a more even and controlled closure with fewer lace crossings than is possible with shoelaces. The guides are made of a durable and lubricious plastic which allows the lace to run through them with very little friction, allowing for a superior closure and fit. The Boa Shoe Lacing Systemcomprises three primary components: Steel Shoe Lace The replaceable Steel shoe lace was developed especially for the Boa System and tested with thousands of hours of in field use. It is made of 19 individual super high strength strands of aircraft grade stainless steel. These strands are braided together to form a long lasting, abrasion resistant, super strong lace. These strands are then wrapped in a specially formulated engineering polymer coating to provide a smooth durable and friction free surface. The Boa Lace Reel The Steel shoe lace ends are fixed to a spool within the miniature Boa Reel. When the knob is rotated, the lace is wound onto the spool as the boot tightens. Elongated Lace Guides The elongated lace guides distribute closure force perfectly across the eyestays of the shoe creating a more even and controlled closure with fewer lace crossings than is possible with shoelaces. The guides are made of a durable and lubricious plastic which allows the lace to run through them with very little friction. The performance advantages are significant: No pressure points. Because of the unique elongated lace guides and precise closure, pressure points are eliminated. You can adjust tightness minutely and instantly to dial in the perfect fit every time. On the fly adjustments like this are impossible with shoelaces. Closure is solid. It can't loosen up. As the shoe itself stretches through the course of the day, a quick half turn of the knob tightens it back up again. The convenience advantages are also significant: It is vastly easier and faster to put your shoes on and take them off. You can wear your shoes loose and comfortable for kicking around and then instantly tighten them up for super support during play. Athletes sometimes tighten them up super tight when they are on the field or court and then loosen them up on the bench for comfort. No more loose shoelace ends in the way when your shoes are on or off. Foot retention independent of shell i.e., all buckles can be loosened while skinning uphill and your foot won't slide around.
