Garmont Radium - Backcountry Ski Boots: Reviews

Good for Touring
You can find a lighter AT boot, but our testers felt the Radium had the best downhill performance-to-weight ratio. Credit the Radium's alpine heritage—an overlap shell—and the Pebax reinforcements in the thermomoldable liner, which add stiffness but almost no weight. Walk mode is a little clunky, but the Radium still provides secure and solid footing on rocky terrain, thanks to its lugged, Dynafit-compatible soles. 8.1 lbs; garmontusa.com
