If you have a wider foot and are looking for crazy amounts of comfort, the Lange XC 90 Ski Boots are probably for you. With a forgiving flex of 90, this boot is ideal for intermediate to advanced skiers who are looking to benefit from a walk/ski mode. Lange's Power V-Lock walk/ski mode allows for ample movement in the cuff in walk mode, without sacrificing downhill performance in ski mode. This means that walking to and from the car or hiking around in the resort just got a whole lot easier.
FIT: Last: 102 mm – The first and only 102 mm mono-injection boot mold blends high-performance with an accessible fit for all-day comfort. Provides a comfortable, more forgiving forefoot width for higher volume feet while retaining a retentive heel cup.
Control Fit Technology – Lange scanned the feet of 20,000 skiers from around the world with a new, state-of-the-art 3D imaging system to develop this combination of shell last and liner execution designed to fit more feet accurately and comfortably. Using this analysis, Lange learned that most skiers benefit from a wider, asymmetrical toe box combined with a slightly narrower, more deeply articulated ankle pocket than is found in competitors' products. The combination of more room in the forefoot and more accuracy in the ankle delivers the best of both worlds: comfort and performance.
Removable Spoiler – Allows the skier to increase forward lean by 2° and adjust the volume of the cuff.
FLEX: Flex: 90 – A medium flex that accommodates intermediate to advanced skiers.
LINER: Control Fit Liner – Designed to provide accurate fit and immediate response, this liner has anatomical padding for strong, comfortable ankle and heel hold. Above the instep, Lange has included a slight pocket for increased circulation and warmth, in addition to a power wedge tongue for enhanced precision and sensitivity. The saddle stitch seams eliminate pressure points and the one-piece toe box allows for greater comfort in the toes.
SHELL MATERIALS: Polyether Shell and Polyolefin Cuff
Mono-Injection – Injection technology based on the use of a single plastic material. This results in the smoothest flex pattern for ultimate response and feedback, more consistent flex and performance in varying temperatures, and an easy-to-customize, precise fit.
STANCE: Natural Stance – This stance compliments modern ski design by providing a neutral and upright stance for more efficient power transfer on modern shaped and rockered skis. This provides less quad fatigue for better, longer ski days. 4° Ramp Angle, 12° Forward Lean (14° with spoiler) and 0° medial / lateral stance.
Twin Cuff Alignment | +/- 1.5° – Permits skiers to align the lateral inclination of the upper cuff to the skier’s leg. Outside and inside hinge cuff alignment; rotate the mechanism clockwise, or counterclockwise, to align boot cuff to desired position.
SKI/WALK MODE: Power V-Lock Ski/Walk Mode – Patented Lange technology to give the cuff maximum freedom to move backwards when in "hike" position, and to guarantee traditional Lange downhill skiability when in "ski" position.
BUCKLES: 4 Micro-Adjustable Buckles
POWER STRAP: 40 mm Velcro Power Strap
SOLE: Replaceable Polyurethane Grip Soles
Arch Pad – The arch of the shell features a high grip insert to maximize grip and traction when hiking on rocks or slippery surfaces.
