    i don't currently have one, but am looking to buy one once the season ending sales commence. it's one of the most expensive boots out there, but after only two BC trips this year i'm growing tired of my alpine boot with AT binding setup.

    Been skiing the Adrenalin all season. It's my everyday alpine boot. Unbelieveable fit, very lightweight, but extremely stiff for an AT boot, as stiff a boot as I would want. Skis well off piste or on trail, no problem on hardpack or ice. Even does well in bumps and I've figured out how to ski them in the bump course too.

    Because of the great fit, they are super warm. I have nothing bad to say about these boots, other than the price tag.

    They're worth it!

    Hi Guys,

    Anybody to compare Adrenaline to GRide model? I'm mostly on ski-tour, but thinking about heliski. Pros and contras on those models?

    cheers,

    The Adrenalin is alot stiffer than the G-ride, more like a real alpine downhill boot. The G-ride is like a noodle on ice, the Adrenalin slices and dices on ice.

    Thanks Jim,

    I am trying not to buy a cheep stuff now after some experience :)
    Would you recommend G-Fit or Padlock inner boot?
    How is about walking or climbing up with Adrenaline? It's definately heavier than for example Mega-Ride (as a pay for stability?).

    Get the G-fit...the thermoformable liners are the way to go. Also, the comfort level these liners afford make up a bit for the stiffness of the boot in walk mode for when you're touring. Weight is not an issue...these boots are very light.

    Well, that was my feeling by trying out that my tender feet cannot stand any other boot than G-fit. I gonna try Adrenaline in the shop in half-an-hour.

    Thank you for the advise, appreciated!

    Thank you. Ii'm more asking than able to answer questions. My tours are never extreme, rather decent. However I'm curently living in Austria and could probably give some touring info to those "normal" skiers/hikers/climbers who is interested in austrian and italian Alps.

    To the original topic - I tried to walk in Adrenaline boots and now I understand why they are positioned as Freeride rather than skitour boots...
