Men's All Mountain Traditionalist Ski Boots '18/'19


Atomic Hawx Ultra 130

Flex: 130 Last: 98mm

The new Atomic Hawx Ultra 130 is the lightest alpine ski boot we’ve ever made. It’s also the stiffest boot in our brand new Hawx Ultra range – bringing the legendary Hawx feel to skiers with narrower feet. It includes Memory Fit for the personalization of a custom ski boot in minutes, plus a Memory Fit 3D Platinum liner with pre-shaped heel and ankle areas for an even better first fit. The reason it’s so light is a Grilamid cuff combined with our radical new Progressive Shell that adds reinforcement in key zones but reduces wall thickness overall to cut weight by 25%. For the best combination of snow-feel and power ever felt in an all-mountain boot, Hawx Ultra also features an asymmetric Energy Backbone that provides extra strength and edge grip for super strong skiing. Add Power Shift, Cuff Alignment and our new Cantable Grip Pads and you’ve got one of the best performing, most customizable boots to date.

 

Bootfitter’s comments: Alpine boot performance at backcountry boot weight! The Hawx Ultra 130 has been hugely popular over the last two seasons, with customers loving not only the weight but also the precise 98mm last, progressive and consistent 130 flex, and lateral stability this boot offers

The boot also includes Memory Fit for the personalization of a custom ski boot in minutes, plus a Memory Fit 3D Gold liner with pre-shaped heel and ankle areas for an even better first fit. These medium-flex 110 boots are slightly softer than the 120 and 130, but still really strong – and they also feature Power Shift, Cuff Alignment and our new Cantable Grip Pads for complete customization.
