ThirtyTwo is known for creating light snowboard boots, and now the brand will hold the record for creating Ultralight, the Lightest. Snowboard. Boot. Ever!, debuting at SIA. Nobody wants a heavy snowboard boot weighing them down, and the Ultralight is 24 percent lighter than ThirtyTwo’s lightest boot from last season. It’s also the first rubberless snowboard boot ever, and it utilizes a lightweight minimalist shell to eliminate excess weight.
The Ultralight is a great freestyle and freeride boot with an advanced articulating cuff shell construction that allows the upper section of the boot to move independently, creating consistent heel hold through the full flex range as well as smoother flex. The Ultralight features an STI Evolution FoamTM one-piece midsole/outsole, and a 3-D Molded Tongue for easier lacing, improved fit and heel hold. It also contains STI System G2TM in the heel to absorb shock and prevent heel bruises.
