Imagine enjoying any terrain, in any conditions, all in the same high performance boot. One day it’s fast frontsides, another day it’s knee-deep backside powder or touring untouched backcountry snow.
That’s all possible with the Ranger Free, an ultralight freeride boot that is a stable, high performance boot on fast groomed slopes, while also offering serious tour walkability.
Set the unobtrusive, integrated Hike Ski lever in the cuff to Ski mode and the Ranger Free’s ultra stable 130 Flex keeps up with full-on alpine boots. The sleek 99mm last and carbon-reinforced Grilamid shell guarantee a snug fit and secure feel at any speed.
When the best downhills are waiting on the other side of a long uphill, the Ranger Free’s excellent walkability is a skier’s best friend. Switch the integrated cuff lever to Walk mode for an excellent range of forward motion when walking or touring. For traversing exposed rocks and ice, GripWalk with a high traction Vibram® sole allows efficient onward and upward drive.
Every component of the Ranger Free has been scrutinized and trimmed down to reach an impressively light 1540 grams. Even the 3-D preformed Active Fit Zone liner is as minimalistic as possible, yet still supportive and comfortable. It can be thermoshaped to the skier’s foot for a perfect fit.
Light weight saves valuable energy on uphills or long tours. It also means excellent agility in powder, or while walking on rough terrain, or even a crowded parking lot. Every day, and all conditions, are always different in the mountains. The ultralight feel, the excellent all-around performance, and the unparalleled walkability of the Ranger Free are for passionate skiers who want to have it all.
