You need a ski boot ready to do both, and this is it. Prolite Construction, the Legendary Hawx Feel and all mountain capability, with the touring ability of Backland thanks to the Free/Lock 4.0 ski-to-walk mechanism and Frictionless Pivot. This XTD 120 model has a slightly softer plastic construction than the top XTD 130 model and a 3D Gold liner – with our Touring Flex Zone for uphill. The word “Tech” in the name means it has tech inserts for the uphill. All mountains, one boot!
