News & Previews


Vibram soles have always equipped telemark and alpine skiing shoes, guaranteeing the grip necessary to practice both sports in total serenity. Starting from the finding that 30% of winter sports accidents do not happen on the slopes, but during intermediate travel due to the slippery plastic soles of ski boots, Vibram now brings its knowledge to snow sports. Whether reaching the ski lifts more safely, practicing extreme freeriding or to accessing the most beautiful slopes, Vibram technology has redefined the ideas of adherence, precision and sensitivity. More than ever, freeriding, snowboarding, telemark and alpine skiing can be practiced in total safety, thanks to Vibram.

VIBRAM® Driver X, traction at 360 degrees

Designed exclusively for Burton, the VIBRAM® Driver X sole is made of VIBRAM® Trek compound for optimum balance between grip and durability. VIBRAM® Driver X sole provides 360 degrees of traction allowing for ascension of the sketchiest boot packs and halfpipe decks with ease. The toe features a snow-cat inspired tread for uphill traction in backcountry hard pack. In the heel, the lugs’ sharp leading edges provide excellent downhill breaking. Along the binding, lugs are flat and wide for maximum stability. Broad spacing between lugs improves snow release and reduces weight. Lug shape, size and position, and compound choice were all balanced to provide the highest level of durability. For improved comfort and minimal weight, the VIBRAM® Driver X sole features an EVA midsole with deep internal flex-grooves in the forefoot and midsole that reduce foot fatigue while hiking or walking.

The new VIBRAM® SuperLight Sole in VIBRAM® Trek compound provides grip, traction, and durability at absolute minimal weight. KGB Technology cushioning midsole absorbs impact and reduces weight. Access Harness with BOA CBR for internal lacing combined with an external BOA Coiler System offers the fastest, most convenient lacing system out there. Pro Foam 3D Intuition™ Liner and micro articulating cuff keep your foot snug, comfortable, and supported on any terrain.

VIBRAM® SuperLight, grip and lightness in one solution

VIBRAM® SuperLight sole, exclusively for K2, takes the concept of lightweight performance to the next level. The X-Frame sole design, in VIBRAM® Trek compound, delivers excellent traction, stability, and durability in heel, toe, underfoot, and around the sole periphery. Backcountry, snowpark, and pipe performance is enhanced, while weight is reduced by approximately 25% thanks to optimized compound density and thicknesses.
