The Salomon Men's Quest 12 All Mountain Ski Boots are high performance all-mountain boot with a 120mm Flex and 100mm last with magnesium Backbone technology combines proven Salomon skiing performance with comfort for hiking and walking.
The Quest 12 all-mountain boot offers a few different types of adjustments and technologies such as backbone release that is made with a magnesium piece linking the cuff to the shell providing solid back support and rebound and a progressive forward flex when locked. When the backbone release is unlocked for hiking the cuff releases on the back for wider opening and easier heel to toe transition. The backbone release works with Salomon's patented ride and hike technology system combining the backbone release with a specific V-cut shape on the back of the lower shell allowing for wide rear cuff opening when hiking (when the backbone release is unlocked) and true alpine forward flex when skiing (backbone locked) because the backside fits precisely into the v-cut lower shell. Other adjustments include the optional forward pressure plate that can be affixed to the inside from of the upper cuff, improving pressure distribution on the shin and adding power to forward flex as well as a reinforced racing spoiler to improve the back support of the boot.
Making all that boot technology comfortable is the custom fit pro liner that maximizes customization with 3 layers of thermoformable foam on the ankle, heel, meta, tongue and sole for perfect comfort and transmission while the very first breathable liner in a ski boot keeps your feet warm all day by helping regulate body temperature thanks to a multilayer construction inspired from apparel. Also thanks to quicklace, laces on the liner, the envelopment of your foot is perfectly homogeneous for great driving precision allowing you a good and comfortable foothold without closing the shell too hard. With a new generation of toe cushioning for riders made of a soft inserts on the shell and an over sized liner toe cushioning to ensure protection of the toes while landing big air and a shock absorbing heel cushioning shock absorbing sole system absorbing shocks when landing jumps, this boot has all you need in one sleek design.
