Black Diamond Factor MX 130
Black Diamond's new Factor MX 130 is the hard-charging men's Alpine Touring Boot you have been waiting for! This boot has a unique design that is extremely light and nimble when you are hiking up, but still proves to be stiff, strong, and durable when you are skiing down. The ski/walk mode allows you to switch up the flex when you need to hike, but when switched back to ski mode this boot features a heavy duty 130 flex and a snug fit which allows for unprecedented lateral quickness. This boot allows you to send it however hard you are comfortable with down the pillow line you worked to so hard for.
This boot also features a heat-moldable power liner and interchangeable sole blocks. This allows you to customize the boot until you are satisfied with how the boot matches your skiing style.
