Carbon Cuff technology
The "Carbon Cuff" is a hardwearing ergonomic structure that works as a backbone, supporting the leg and guaranteeing a perfect fit and a maximum comfort. This technology enhances the drive and edge control of the skis.
CARBON GRILAMID LFT® SHELL AND CUFF
The Carbon Grilamid LFT® (Long Fiber Technology) infuses long strand carbon fibers into Grilamid® plastic, significantly increasing strength and stiffness. The result is reduced weight with increased power and torsional rigidity, providing and amazing blend of power and precision in a lightweight backcountry package.
Speed Lock system Lite New
Lacing system, consisting of the lever “A-Light”, lightweight and durable, a Dyneema cord, two loops and two metal hooks. Thanks to this system, the cuff and the shell can be released or locked in a single movement, allowing the front opening or closing of the cuff. The new locking plate on the shell, for the connection of the lever to the shell, assures a secure and fast locking and avoids the heap of snow or ice.
Boa Closure system
The BOA CLOSURE system provides a closure and a custom fit for maximum comfort without pressure points. The hidden guides allow an easy regulation of the closure on every type of feet volume. On the Alien RS the BOA works directly on the inner boot, increasing the feeling and sensibility on your feet. The cable with its special construction and coating allow the lace to withstand the abrasion and the fatigue of thousands of hours of use.
Made from light alloy, a light yet resistant fiber. The plastic eyelet in the middle allows the Dyneema cord to easily slide.
The gaiter is built with a nylon fiber interwoven with spandex for the elasticity. The thermowelded PU film on the lower area, increase the protection and insulation on the most critic and sensitive zone. The top elastic band keeps always the upright position for walking comfort without pressure points.
EVA cushion integrated on the Carbon Cuff, offers great support and comfort on the calf area.
Allows the positioning and attachment of the boot easily and securely. The lateral grooves allow a smooth and quick insertion.
