The combination of the exclusive mix of materials and the Powercage structure makes the DS AX 90 GW one of the most technically advanced models in its price class. It offers the perfect combination of relaxed skiing behavior and handling, excellent performance, and direct power transfer. Advanced skiers with slightly wider feet will appreciate the easy step-in and comfortable fit, enabling them to enjoy their day on the slopes without achy feet or signs of fatigue. MyFit technology enables both the IF liner and shell to be individually adapted if necessary so as to achieve the optimum fit. State-of-the-art GripWalk profiled soles come pre-fitted to significantly improve walking comfort and grip.
Grip Walk Option - This boot is coming with the option to mount GripWalk soles as an aftermarket accessory. GripWalk soles provide better grip, great walking comfort and work perfectly with the GripWalk binding without any height adjustment (due to their Touring ISO Norm 9523).
Drive & Control - The Drive & Control technology offers more volume in the toe box and a precise wrapping heel zone. While the comfortable toe-box volume offers better fit, better blood circulation and - as a result - warm feet and toes, the wrapping heel zone stands for more control, direct powertransmission and more sensitiveness.
Canting Shim - Customize the inclination with different canting plates. » Includes 2x 2° | 4x 1.5° | 6x 1° | 8x 0.5° angled plates » Mounted between shell and sole to adjust the canting right from the bottom of the boot » Available as aftermarket kit
Locked Cuff - The locked cuff feature boosts rear support and minimizes rear cuff flex. Skiers find the boot is for more responsive, more powerful, and more precise.
Micro Buckles - Permits skiers to precisely “fine tunes” buckle closure tension for a more exact fit. With micro adjustment, you can twist the buckle to make it longer or shorter.
IF Performance - The IF Performance stands for immediate fit at the first step in and still giving the opportunity to fit 60% of the liner within 4 minutes. Its medium densitiv ultralon foam ensures great performance and a comfortable fit.
Canting (Shaft Alignment) - The pivot points allow proper flexion of the ankle, a smoother forward flex and a more natural stance. By adjusting the excentric canting screws, bootfitters/skiers can customize the best setup for every skier.
3D Grip Texture: The irregular pattern of the 3D GRIP TEXTURE gives this extra grip when walking on groomed slopes or fresh snow and positively influences the balanced stiffness of the boot. The 3D GRIP TEXTURE adds material right at the spot where it is needed to stiffen the the lower shell for an improved power transmission from boot to ski. In addition, the structure avoids scratches and improves the overall durability.
