The Atomic Race Skate: the first cross-country skiing boot with the Boa Lacing system

With the Boa Lacing system, the new Atomic Race Skate introduces the most effective lacing system to cross-country skiing. Because this boot sits so precisely and is so easy to use, more and more amateur racers are switching to the new lacing system.

The Boa Lacing system has impressed runners, cyclists, golfers and those in motorsports for years. In the 13/14 season, Atomic is making this technology accessible to cross-country skiers too. The Race Skate especially appeals to ambitious athletes because it combines advantages from which you can benefit in both practice sessions and challenging competitions.

The Race Skate with Boa Lacing sits very precisely and retains its comfortable fit even after hours of stress. This is made possible by integrated threads on the boot upper, which surround your foot evenly and comfortably. The Race Skate is not fixed with a bow but by a rotating wheel on the outer boot, using which you can make the boot narrower or wider. The combination of the exact fit and the carbon-reinforced SNS Pilot Racing outer sole provides optimum transfer of power to the ski.

It is not only athletes who are impressed by the Race Skate, but also experts from professional circles. The best example of this is that at the ISPO 2013, an international trade fair for sports goods, the Atomic Race Skate won the award for the "Cross-Country" category. The jury's verdict was as follows: "Atomic's Boa system is the best lacing system for cross-country skiing boots. Form follows function: the Boa system allows problem-free use in any situation, even in competition."
