For backcountry touring, the new glittertind BC has a hinged cuff for extra edge control. The PVG-free upper is lightweight, yet still supportive, and Madshus has engineered support and flex inspired by their racing boots into the upper of the boot, along with a secure heel hold for climbing. The waterproof/breatahable bootie, ThinsulateTM and the MemBrain® softshell lace cover will keep you warm, dry and comfortable during your off-trail adventures. The printed PU rand provides high abrasion-resistance with minimal weight. The TPU toe and heel caps provide durable protection during your adventures and are made using 75% reduced-solvent manufacturing techniques. Built on the NNN BC outsole, the new Glittertind BC lets you ski your own course in untracked snow.
