BOOTS THAT FIT

BOOTS THAT FIT

No matter how you ski, you’ll have a better day in boots that fit. Your boots are your accelerator and your steering wheel, the connection between you and your skis. This connection should be intuitive and comfortable.

We set out to make a boot that enhances that connection, a boot that provides performance through comfort. From the new, narrow-fit Hawx Ultra up to the wide-fit Hawx Magna, there is a solution for every foot type. There’s a reason they’re the best-selling ski boot series in the world - unrivaled fit, comfort, and performance.

Find your perfect boot

The right ski boot should fit comfortably, providing a firm hold to the foot while reliably transmitting power and steering impulses from the skier to the ski. The wrong boot can spoil the fun of skiing. It causes pressure points and often enough results in cold feet. This is as important for beginners as it is for advanced skiers and experts. Quite frankly, putting some extra thought in choosing the right ski boot is worth the effort.

 

Finding the right size

The most important criteria is a proper fit and that starts with the right size. So how do I find out, what size is right for me? In a specialist shop, the length and width of the foot is measured using a gauge (by the way, you should do this every time you buy a new ski boot, because the size and shape of the feet can change over time).

Beware of the width

For an excellent fit the width of the ski boot is equally important. A boot that is too narrow hurts. A boot that is too wide leaves room for movement and hardly provides a foothold. So how tight should the fit of a ski boot be? How much comfort can be expected? An Atomic dealer can make an initial recommendation for the suitable ski boots on the basis of the measured foot length and width. Accordingly, not only the correct length of the shell or ski boot is chosen, but also its width. A forefoot width of less than 98 mm is considered narrow, shells with a width of around 100 mm are considered medium, 102mm and above as wide.

SKI BOOT TYPES AND FLEX INDEX

Once the right boot size has been determined, skiing style and ability come into play. Ski boots differ in the construction of the liner, the functionality and the rigidity of the shell. For shell rigidity all brands use the so-called Flex Index which describes the sti¬ffness of the shell with regard to the forward inclination of the shaft. When choosing the flex and the style of skiing, the skier‘s strength and his anatomy play a decisive role.

 

A custom fit has never been easier

All-day comfort, thermal warmth and intuitive performance have always been the hallmark of a proper fitting ski boot. Even if Atomic ski boots provide a great fit right out of the box, there are billions of different foot sizes and shapes in the world, so the perfect fit is not always automatic. This is where custom boot fitting can make all the difference. By utilizing state-of-the-art shapable plastics, heat moldable liners and revolutionary foam injection technologies, the ultimate in custom fit, comfort and performance can be achieved - regardless of foot size or shape.
