The 2022 Ascendant SC Grip Walk is a tour-ready ski boot using Full Tilt's 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' models, 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 the skier a greater range of motion for a more natural stride when you’re not skiing. This walk mode is easy to use and makes 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 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 2022 Ascendant SC also comes with industry-leading Intuition liners to create a truly personalised fit for the whole boot. This boot uses the Pro Tour Wrap liner to achieve a secure fit around the whole foot, with fewer seams to reduce the chance of experiencing discomfort. The liner also includes a lacing hole system, a 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 that will take on anything the mountain has to offer. Whether you’re clambering over icy rocks in the backcountry or carving groomers.
The Evolution Pro Tour: Offers a smooth stride and articulated purchase in any situation. Walk farther and more comfortably than ever before. Featuring a higher back cuff and lightweight Grilamid™ plastic, this construction will take you anywhere.
Pro Tour Wrap: Dominate the Up and Down - With a Tour Flex Notch, removable external J-Bars, lacing system, and power strap, the Tour Pro makes walking a blister-free experience in an enveloping, snug fit.
J-Bar: An additional j-shaped piece of foam is inserted internally on both sides of the ankle area to dramatically increase ankle hold down, to keep your feet perfectly in place for precise control.
Wide Toe: A thinner foam is used in the front of the liner to increase space without sacrificing control for people with wider feet or who prefer a little more toe room.
Shock Absorber Boot Board: Soft rubber layer in the sole of the shell absorbs vibrations and impacts for a smooth ride and smooth landings
Grip Walk Outsole: Designed for a better purchase on unstable & slippery terrain. The convex shape and ribbed tread add both comfort & grip for getting from house to hill to peak!
Mid Grip: Whether you are climbing grated stairs or scrambling on top of a mountain, a dual material or single material midgrip gives you the confidence to stay on your feet.
Ladder Buckle: The ladder buckle features an intuitive, easy to remember, macro-size adjustment, plus a micro-twist for fine adjustment with a light, easy-to-handle aluminum lever.
