The Syborg Alpine Touring Boot from La Sportiva is the footwear of choice for skimo racers and serious fitness skiers alike. This boot features a lightweight and durable Grilamid shell combined with a carbon fiber and Grilamid cuff. When matched with the Pebax tongue, it makes for an extremely lightweight boot that crushes the uphill while still maintaining a nimble, yet powerful, downhill ability. An EZ Thermo Race Liner can be molded for that perfect fit, and the LazerGrip2 rubber soles ensure you don't lose traction on the top of a wind scoured ridge or while rappelling into your latest couloir project. The Syborg keeps things simple with just two buckles and an optional power strap, letting you go from walk to ski at the flip of a switch. In walk mode you enjoy the freedom of 75 degrees of cuff rotation, anymore and you'd have to be double jointed to use them. With an adjustable forward lean of 14 , 16 , 18 , or 20 degrees, it's easy to dial in the stance that works for you.
