An over-lapping plastic shell. An inner boot. A foot bed. Four Buckles. A few bells and whistles. Most ski boots today are very much the same now, as they were thirty years ago. Skis on the other hand, have undergone dramatic improvements and continue to evolve (as have poles, goggles, helmets, apparel….), while boots remain virtually unchanged. Technological advancements have been made in all other aspects of our lives, yet there has been no real innovation in ski boots until The Apex Ski Boot System was introduced a couple of years ago.
Apex is the first ski boot designed and built to take advantage of the modern shaped ski. The Apex Ski Boot System was developed by Denny Hanson who has extensive experience with past ski boots and technical footwear. He applied an array of new technology and ideas to ski boots, like high-modulus, lightweight carbon fiber, separate cuff controls, and unique A-Flex suspension into a component system….into the Apex Ski Boot System.
Snowboard boots have always featured a soft exterior and comfort that no ski boot could offer. Snowboarders could perform all day on the mountain, and then walk around at the end of the day in the same boots and never worry about loosening them up. Watching this scene play out over the last twenty five years inspired a boot that affords skiers the same combination of performance, comfort, and incredible warmth and walkability.
The Walkable Support Boot incorporates a heat moldable, Custom Fit Liner that promotes a natural foot position. A Boa Closure System is added for infinite adjustment that will not loosen during the day no matter how hard you ski. Apex provides all day warmth and comfort so you can focus on your ski experience.
The heart of the system, the Open Chassis allows for independent control of fit, flex, and closure. The adjustable cuff alignment provides critical edge control. The tunable A-flex suspension system allows for individual adjustment of the resistance to forward lean. The Open Chassis gives the Apex Ski Boot System its exceptional edge control, precise feel, and unique versatility, fitting a wide range of foot shapes.
