It’s time to pop some bottles of champagne over at the ThirtyTwo headquarters because ISPO recently announced that the Ultralight 2 was selected as the Gold Winner in the action segment and boots freestyle category.
“It’s great to see a brand really pushing the limits of what’s imaginable in snowboard boots,” said Tom Wilson-North, ISPO Award Jury Panel Member. “The Ultralight got the Award because of the modern design and best-in-class liner, and of course for its featherweight, which will do a lot to reduce riding fatigue. Snowboard boots don’t need to be heavy.”
The ThirtyTwo Ultralight was the first rubberless snowboard boot, and the Ultralight 2’s Evolution outsole and minimalist design makes it the lightest boot yet. The Ultralight 2 has an articulating cuff shell construction that allows the upper section of the boot to move independently creating consistent heel hold through the full flex range, one-to-one lasting, a performance backstay, a 3D molded tongue and internal lacing system.
