As you make the transition from lift-served riding to splitboarding, you know that your board is different, your bindings are different, you have skins for climbing, but what about your boots? Sure, you can run your frontside boots in the backcountry, but have you ever thought what else is out there? And why?
Enter the Deeluxe Spark XV Splitboard Boot. Designed by the legendary Xavier de Le Rue in Europe, this is the boot for tackling big peaks, long approaches, mixed climbing, and general Type2 fun!
Not only does the boot have an adjustable walk mode (via the power strap), but it also features a lateral stiffness not seen in frontside boots. When you're skinning a sidehill, you'll immediately notice the difference in support and efficiency, as well as saving you valuable energy for those longer days.
The heel of the boot is fitted with a purpose-built welt for semi-automatic crampons, giving you piece of mind as you're booting up in bigger terrain. And the sides of the boot are affixed with Deeluxe Rock Guard to not only protect the boots from rocks, but to offer additional traction when scrambling towards the summit.
To make transitions easier, these boots feature a speedlace system, with each lace bringing a particular part of your foot into an ideal level of support and comfort.
When you're ready to fully make the move to the backcountry, put the Deeluxe Spark XV on your feet and feel the efficiency in your stride, the pep in your step, and enjoy those slash turns top to bottom!
