If you don't want to sacrifice performance or power, then the Full Tilt First Chair 8 Ski Boots will keep you charging in or out of bounds. The First Chair 8 was designed with a Flex 8 Tongue that is stiff but still responsive and doesn't feel like you have an anchor on your leg. Featuring a heat-moldable power wrap Intuition liner, and a rugged rubber sole to handle those dicey bootpacks and icy parking lots, these boots pack a punch without leaving your shins all purple and dented. As Bryce Phillips said, “the cable system distributes pressure evenly,” so you nearly forget you’re in a ski boot. The FT First Chair 8 is the ideal ski boot for all-mountain skiers that want to charge everywhere from the park to backcountry bowls.
Last: 99 mm – The original width shell that your feet love. Ideal for average to narrow width feet.
FTS (Full Tilt Soul) Shell – The FTS Shell takes the same 99 mm last width and geometry used in the original 3-piece design and incorporates a roomier toe box, allowing room for your toes to play.
3-Piece Shell Construction – Up to 2 lbs / 900 g lighter than other boots due to its smart and minimalistic 3-Piece design that eliminates the need for thick, heavy overlapping plastic or bolts.
Easy On/Off – Tongue fully opens like a convertible, never blocking your foot. Slide your foot in and out easily with comfort in all temperatures.
Flex Rating: 8 (1 soft - 10 stiff) – Powerful & responsive energy transfer, while maintaining a smooth, natural ankle motion to eliminate shinbang! You can quickly change your flex by swapping out different flex tongues.
Infinite Pivot – Unlike traditional designs, the rear cuff never bottoms out. It pivots infinitely forward with your calf for less shell distortion, no shin pain, and more control.
Ribbed Tongue – 100% ribbed tongue enables smoother, more natural linear flex from your shin to your toe. The tongue bends like a flexible straw, never bottoming out while providing smooth rebound. No more shin bang! Optimized for FT's new 45 degree cable positioning for the smoothest flex possible.
Pro Liner – 4 mm Open Cell Foam / 2 mm Intuition® RD Foam / 7 mm Intuition® HD Foam. Specifically engineered to provide the most energy transfer to shell while maintaining warmth in a light weight and custom moldable fit.
100% Heat Moldable Intuition® – All adult Full Tilt boots use authentic Intuition® closed cell foam that is body heat activated to mold 100% to your feet and shell during use, or can be heat molded by a shop in minutes.
Rubber Soles – Natural rubber soles on the toe & heel for non-slip walking & hiking that can even be replaced if they wear out.
Shock Absorber Boot Board – Soft rubber layer in the sole of the shell absorbs vibrations, impact, and shock for a smooth ride.
