Lighter and faster than the competition and even a little better price. Thats what La Sportiva set out to do with the Syborg boot when they brought the innovation from their award-winning Stratos series and slashed the price to something everyone can afford. With an incredibly easy tour to ski throw and an outstanding 75 degrees of cuff articulation, this boot is ready to run. At 800 grams per boot it is light enough for race day, but the Grilamid plastic makes it strong enough to beat the hell out of it on your training days. The Syborg is an all around amazing boot for both the series racer and the uphill fitness skier.
