Description: The Vulcan offers strong performance on the descent and the capability to control modern freeride skis at any speed. You can also vary stiffness of the flex. 

Bootfitters' comments: Wow! what a Boot! Lightweight with good cuff range in hiking mode. The fit is tight, with solid heel hold, narrow through the midfoot and has just enough flare in the forefoot to accommodate a medium width foot. The flex is stiff when fully locked up and the boot skis like a dream when charging big lines at full speed. This boot suits the strong skier who wants a solid performance when descending.

Bootfitters' comments: 

The new Cochise shell shape adds improvement that means more versatility. This boot is nice and light, the hike mode is easy to access and operate and the flex uncompromised by the light weight. This boot can be used as an everyday boot and will happily ride the chair lift with the skier who is keen to ski lines that were both lift accessed as well as earned.  The liner is on the thin side, however customisable.
