What are the lightest ski boots?

By brands and models, please.

Hey, it's supposed to be winter in the NE this weekend!
post #2 of 6

pretty general question which won't get much response without some clarification

 

what are you looking for? an alpine boot or a touring boot, the most important thing as i am sure you know is fit, so a boot which is 100 grams or so lighter but does't fit you is not a great way to start the hunt.... it also depends on size... in 26.5 most alpine boots weigh in at around just north of 2 kg per boot, touring boots 1-1.5 kg  there is an alpine boot released by atomic for next season which weighs in at 1.6kg which is pretty light as alpine boots go...BUT if it doesn't fit it doesn't matter!

There's also the Dodge boot.. Again.. if it doesn't fit... and this one is $1300.00

 

 

Advertised at 1600 grams (3.5 pounds)

Good points. Looking for an Alpine boot. Fit is more important than weight, for sure.

 

I chickened out on the Apex boots. Right now I'm in the Full Tilt Booter which (to me) is fairly light that I wear when teaching kids because I usually walk more than ski. I have Heads that I wear to ski-ski.

 

So, I was curious to know which manufacturer/s and model/s are lighter than others. 

 

Thanks!

all alpine boots are about the same weight and only different by a few grams.   if weight is the goal (rather then fit) get a scale and start measuring some.

 

also look at a tech binding and tech/touring boots.
