Prolite: Prolite is a way of building skis and boots that turns traditional thinking on its head. Instead of starting with a standard construction and cutting material away to save weight, Prolite does the opposite. It starts with the slimmest possible profile and then it builds up reinforcements in key areas where strength is needed - like the Energy Backbone down each boot spine and ski edge.
Energy Backbone: The Energy Backbone is a reinforced, asymmetric backbone in our Hawx Ultra and Hawx Ultra XTD, providing extra strength for powerful skiing plus enhanced lateral energy transmission for better edge grip.
Frictionless Pivot: Igus polymer bushings provide a completely natural movement for effortless ascents.
Memory Fit: Atomic Memory Fit is one of the quickest heat-fitting technologies around. The key is Memolink, our special additive that improves the moldability and stretch characteristics of our plastics. Thanks to this, all three elements of the boot can adapt to the foot - shell, cuff and liner. Expansion can be up to 6mm in forefoot width and up 10mm in ankle width, resulting in a permanent and complete anatomical fit in minutes.
Boa Fit System: Dial up or down to create your perfect fit - with a smooth, uniform closure - so you can put less energy into keeping your foot secure and more into keeping control. Push in to engage, turn to tighten or loosen and pull up the dial for a quick release.
True Flex: It's common to hear that boots stiffen up when it gets cold, or become softer in warm conditions. True Flex is an exclusive Atomic shell material that means your flex and feel remains constant in a variety of temperatures. So the boot you buy in store feels the same on the mountain, you don't lose horsepower in the spring and you don't have a boot you can't flex mid-winter.
Memory Fit 3D: Memory Fit 3D is our special liner featuring pre-shaped thermoformable heel and ankle areas, which creates a snug anatomical fit around the heel and ankle for a better foot hold. So there are no pressure points when you put the boot on for the first time. Then for continuous comfort we've given the liner a 1-piece toe box that precisely follows the shape of the shell and surrounds the foot with comfortable foam. Also included are special footbeds that have the best blend of initial cushioning and proper support. And finally it's 100% Memory Fit compatible.
Free/Lock 4.0: 74-degree Range of Motion with 13-degree (Default), 15-degree, 17-degree Adjustable Forward Lean Options. Simple, Light and Bombproof.
Skywalk Rubber Sole: Allows for a more natural gait and improves grip on tricky surfaces. This sole does not conform to any existing ISO standard and must only be used with bindings that use tech fittings at both toe and heel.
Investment Cast Tech Inserts: Tech inserts on the outsole for compatibility with touring-specific bindings.
Tongue Stabilizer: Add stability in the tongue for when you are climbing up.
Removable Visor: Removable visor (screw-off) for personal style and added sun/snow coverage.
Integrated Custom Dial Fit System: The adjustable dial fit system for quick and easy adjustments is now integrated in the liner for optimized fit and durability.
Airflow Concept: The EPS4D liner built-in channels allow an even temperature and constant airflow between your head, your helmet and your goggles.
Thermo Control System (TCS): All the best temperature regulation technologies available on the market combined in one helmet.
EPS4D Technology: Salomon's patented EPS4D technology maximizes energy absorption and protects from oblique and vertical shocks.
In-Mold Construction: A lightweight PC shell fused with EPS liner to maximize protection and comfort.
Active Ventilation: Allows you to modify the amount of airflow and heat exhaust.
3D Sound System Earpads: A new, 3D perforated ear-pad construction that allows better sound transmission (audio sold separately).
Removable/Washable Liner: For better hygiene: an easy to remove, 100% washable liner.
100% UV Cut Lens: All Salomon lenses filter 100% of the sun's UV rays, for complete eye protection
Boy these things are soft, like a flaccid winger on a frosty morning. BUT the walk mode is insane and they are ~*so light*~ I cut multiple minutes off some of my uphill tours the first day I was in them. Comfortable out the box, but I’ll be having some work done and heel cups put in. I just cannot emphasize enough how soft they are... like Mitch McConnell’s neck flapper, loose & squishy (but the boots are way less gross and racist).
