Salomon Quest Ski Boots - Women's - 2010/2011 - $233.83

The women's Salomon Quest ski boots offer you the option of hiking for your turns. Specialized ski/hike mechanism frees the upper cuff from the lower part of the boot and offers enough movement to comfortably hike to untouched stashes. When you're ready to ski, the cuffs lock directly into the lower shell to maximize power transmission on the descent. Innovative V-shaped lower shell and magnesium backbone virtually eliminate flex when backbone is engaged. Waterproof fabric along the sides of the tongues helps keep feet dry, even when hiking in deep powder. Women-specific liners feature upper cuffs that are shaped around women's calf muscles, a wider forefoot area and low volume around the ankles. Comfortable liners feature a layer of thermal-formable foam that personalizes the fit along the front of the ankle. Moisture-wicking layers of mesh, foam and insulation in liners efficiently transfer chilling sweat away from feet. Liners disperse more moisture than standard liners, helping keep feet dry and warm. Closed-cell foam under the boot boards softens hard landings. Fixed, rear spoiler enhances forward lean. Rubber soles offer excellent traction on slippery surfaces. With a flex index of 80, Salomon Quest ski boots provide a power transfer suitable for intermediate skiers. - $233.83
