The Ascendant Approach Michelin Grip Walk is a tour-ready ski boot using Full Tilts traditional 3 piece shell design. The Ascendant has a host of new technology starting with its construction, Full Tilt now uses a TPU/Grillamid shell to reduce weight and to increase durability for freeride skiing. Similar to the previous seasons model, the Ascendent has a wider 102mm last width, which makes it ideal for those with higher volume feet or wanting a bit more space around the toes.
The ribbed tongue allows for a smooth progressive flex for improved control and that eliminates uncomfortable pressure spots. This model comes with a stiff 120 flex tongue which makes it perfect for those looking for response and performance in the most technical terrain. However, the tongue is interchangeable and can be easily swapped out for softer flexes at any time or completely removed for uphill touring sections for less weight and greater movement, an internal gaiter keeps the boot sealed.
This particular shell utilises the new Tour Cuff, which incorporates a walk mode. This simple lever operated mechanism unlocks the cuff, allowing skier a greater range of motion for a more natural stride when you’re not skiing. This walk mode is easy to use and make these boots great for backcountry boot packing, hiking features in the park, strolling around town in search of street spots. Simply flip the lever up when you want to walk, then flip it down when you want to shred. Gripwalk outsoles which have been made by Michelin Tires are made out of a high grade polymer and a midgrip in the centre of the sole will keep your feet steady on unstable snow, ice, rock, or even the slippery sun terrace at your favourite après bar.
The Ascendant Approach also comes with the industry-leading Intuition liners to create a truly personalised fit to the whole boot. This boot uses an original tongue liner design which helps to increase room around the toes but provides better grip across instep, reducing heel life and boosting responsiveness. The liner also includes a lacing hole system, removable external J-bar around the heel and a detachable cuff spoiler. These combined features help to find that perfect balance of a good fit and comfort.
All this, combined with Full Tilt’s highly customisable design, makes for a high performance ski boot which will take on anything the mountain has to offer. Whether you’re clambering over icy rocks in the back country or carving groomers.
