Sale: $299.00
Retail: $599.00

Save 50%
Head's new boot lineup, the AdaptEdge, allow the skier to change both the flex and the last width of the ski boot. A single turn of a screw changes the last width from 104mm to 102mm, and a single turn of another screw changes the flex from 90 to 100. Throw in double canting adjustments, cuff adjustment, 4 super high tech buckles, a High Performance HeatFit (HPF) liner, and a triple-injected shell...and well you have one heck of a boot. These boots offer the comfort of a recreational boot and the precise fit of a performance boot, and will grant you the ability to have your cake and eat it, too.

Adaptive Fit Last 102mm-104mm: Head's newest boot technology is called Adaptive Fit. The Adaptive Fit boots essentially have two lasts, one at 102mm and one at 104mm, and all it requires is the turn of a screw.

90/100 Flex Rating: This boot has an adjustable flex, which can be set as stiff as 100 and as soft as 90. 90-100 flex boots are best for upper intermediate to advanced skiers, or even experts who are more concerned with cruising comfort.

Tri-Injected Energy Frame Shell: Most ski boots are Bi-Injected into the mold to create two different densities of plastic. Head went ahead and did one better, tri-injection molding. This means there are three levels of plastic density instead of two, meaning the transition from the stiff/dense sole of the boot to the lighter upper-cuff of the boot is more fluid. This in turn makes your skiing smoother and the boot has a more predictable flex throughout all parts of the boot.

HeatFit/High Performance HeatFit Liner: Self molding inserts in the liner and tongue quickly adapt to the shape of your feet, just by wearing and skiing them.

Soft Walk HeelSoft Walk Heel: A rubber insert in the heel cushions while walking to get better grip and a more comfortable stride.

Macro adjust ladder (SuperMacro): The tooth plate opposite the top buckles can be moved in or out for a huge range of adjustment, and to fit narrow to wide lower legs.

35mm strap: Wider than average strap at the top of the boot to help keep the boot together and to give good performance while skiing.

Spineflex Buckles: These alloy buckles come from the Head Racing department, the Spine-Tech buckle system combines the regular fixed bridge buckle with a more curved ladder shape. This allows the buckle to be closed more tightly, as well as allows more overlap of the shell flaps, which reduces pressure points and gives a more precise and comfortable fit.

Double Canting: Two adjustment bolts, one each side of the ankle, allow for maximum adjustment for leg/knee alignment problems. The canting helps the skis stay flat on the ground while you are still bow-legged or knock-kneed.

Replaceable Toe and Heel Pads: This is a must-have for skiers that don't live in ski in/ski out condos. When your ski tech tells you that you have to buy new boots because the soles are worn down too much, just laugh at him and tell him to order you a new set of sole plates.
