Skiing is seeing some stunning innovations and the Hawx is probably the most talked about boot development this season.
All Hawx models feature iFlex technology. This allows the zone around your forefoot to flex as your foot would naturally when flexing through the “range” of the boot. There have been some very positive reports of enhanced control and the boot does attempt to take a “biomechanical” to harness your body and the mechanics of skiing. Atomic claim that iFlex achieves the aim of allowing you to remain better balanced and targeted over the “sweet spot” off your skis – this is around the ball of your feet.
Available in four flexes with boots for both sexes. Certainly worth a try for something a touch different.
The manufacturer says this about the Atomic Hawx 90 W Ski boots:
Medium fitting lasts.
iFlex – Revolutionary forefoot flexing of the shell itself.
Custom moulded liner.
Flexes from 80 to 110 available.
