For skiers who plan on a hefty amount of quality uphill time, Hagan developed the Core ski touring boot. This lightweight boot comes equipped with an alpine buckle forefoot, a hefty power strap upper, pin inserts, a powerful 100-flex rating and heat moldable Palau liners. All in a sub-1200 gram package. Go ahead and get your tour on with 60-degree fore/aft cuff rotation. We know you will be eagerly awaiting the descent. Rip descents with confidence and control — this boot is built with hard Core chargers in mind. The Core is remarkably stiff for its weight, significantly stiffer providing more control in downhill mode than well known boots in the same weight range.
The Core is built to succeed equally on the uphill and downhill. The Ba-X construction Grilamid shell lends to its high strength-to-weight ratio. The Ba-X Frame is a lightweight, rib-reinforced anatomically-correct shell design that achieves stellar power transmission, as energy is channeled easily through the boot to the skis’ edges. You’ve got a recipe for happy feet and happy skiers. Certified pin insets and Hagan’s rockered, rubber soles allow for efficient uphill travel via frame or pin bindings as well as easy, comfortable boot packing.
The Core is for enthusiastic and athletic backcountry travelers. It boasts a streamlined, simple and ultra-reliable design. Tour with confidence on this true featherweight champ instead of worrying about all the fidgety, fragile extraneous “features” tacked onto other boots. Features that seem gee whiz in the shops and are something to hype in marketing aren't things you want to mess with or have let you down on your tours. Be reliable, be durable, stick to the Core!
