The Descendant 8 is the top model of the new Descendant ski boot lineup for men and doesn't compromise in terms of performance and power transmission, despite its high wearing comfort especially for slightly wider feet (102mm last). With its 8 flex tongue, the boot provides a stiff yet responsive feel for those skiers who prefer a more resistant flex pattern. The perfect, powerful all-mountain partner for all conditions, manoeuvres, and disciplines.
The minimalistic 3-piece design eliminates the need for thick heavy overlapping plastic or bolts for increased quickness and sensitivity, up to 2 lbs / 900g lighter than standard alpine boots. The FTE shell features the original 3-piece design, specially adapted for riders with wider feet. Constructed from a high-grade polymer, the removable dual-material outsoles provide added grip and stability. The ribbed tongue offers a smoother, more natural linear flex from your shin to your toe. The tongue bends like a flexible straw, never bottoming out while providing smooth rebound. No more shin bang. The boots flex is rated on a simple scale of 1-10 (10=stiffest). Change a boots flex by simply switching the tongue. (Competitors boots require permanent cutting). Unlike traditional designs, the rear cuff with Infinite Pivot never bottoms out. It pivots infinitely forward with your calf for less shell distortion and more control.
The Pro Liner’s laminate is specifically engineered to provide the most energy transfer to shell while maintaining warmth in a lightweight and custom moldable fit. All adult boot liners are built using authentic Intuition® closed cell foam. It is body heat activated to mold 100% to your feet and shells during use or can be instantly heat molded by a shop in minutes for a light, warm and super comfortable fit.
The Ladder Buckle features an intuitive, easy to remember, macro-size adjustment, plus a micro-twist for fine adjustment with a light, easy-to-handle aluminium lever.
Comfort is performance! The Full Tilt mantra rings true in many skiers ears. In 2006, Full Tilt decided to do the skiing community a huge favor and bring back the 3-piece ski boot design. Having been produced on and off since the beginning of the '80s, it was time to bring the iconic design back and to keep it alive for good! Now every skier out there has the possibility to know what pain-free skiing feels like! A real dream come true!
