Blending lightning fast speed on the skintrack with precise responsiveness on the descent, the all-new 2018 women's Atomic Hawx Ultra XTD 90 W backcountry touring boot was designed for female AT skiers who love to get up to get down! Atomic took the hard-charging downhill capabilities of its Hawx line and threw in the uphill prowess of the Backland fleet to create a boss-lady of a backcountry boot with the XTD 90 W. This 90 W model has a slightly softer plastic construction and standard liner, specially tuned for women skiers of medium/low build and strength.
Weighing just under two pounds per boots, this all-terrain boot is lightweight, yet incredibly durable thanks to the Grilamid construction and Atomic's Progressive Shell, which strategically places thicker walls in areas that need to be stronger and slimmer everywhere else. The Free/Lock 2.0 system uses one simple switch to swap modes, and the 54-degree cuff rotation will have you strolling up the skinner like you're wearing your favorite hiking boots. Skywalk WTR soles help give you traction and security when you're kicking your way up a firm bootpack, and the Frictionless Pivot ensures a smooth, natural feel through every stride on your arduous approach.
Walking uphill is nice, but what about that aforementioned downhill rippage? When you're ready to drop into that line you put your blood, sweat, and tears into, crank down the 35mm power strap and enjoy the powerful feel of Atomic's reinforced Energy Backbone and solid 90 flex as you carve your way down that pinner chute. The 98mm last width provides a more precise fit than most other 'boxy' AT boots out there.
- Last Width: 98 mm. A precise, performance-oriented fit
- Flex: 90. Moderate flex for a mostly performance-oriented blend of comfort and responsiveness
- Memory Fit: Advanced heat-fitting technology creates a fully personalized shell, cuff, and liner in minutes.
