    More like a real Alpine DH boot right? Very stiff.

    If you're looking for a boot more oriented to the tour than the downhill, check out Scarpa's line of AT boots. They offered a boot called the F1 that is an AT boot with bellows like tele boots. These are quite soft, not for steep and narrow decents but perfect for touring and gentle DH.

    Good point. I would like Scarpa Matrix, but my foot is too narrow for Scarpas schell form - there is too much space left around. The Garmont volume fits me the best. Looks like I need two pair of boots: Mega-ride for Skitour and probably Adrenaline for heliski or so. Alltogether is a small fortune.

    Hey thanks for the optimistic info Jim. For us here in NewEngland that have tromped around in the alpine boots without walk-mode....it sounds like just what we need. Now if they could come up with an adjustable flex in conjunction with walk-mode... (...but I don't want to think about the pricetag on those...just yet ).
