I recall early boots had some hard plastic components, but I guess I dismissed them as not really in the same realm as these.

 

Odd to me that there's more demand (?) for a carving hybrid than a BC hybrid.

I highly doubt that there is more demand. But this had to be a fairly easier and cheaper project to do for them. They just combined the lowers of their existing hardboots with their softboot uppers. Guessing they didn't even need new molds for the lower part.

Kind of speechless with that Deeluxe boot. Can't see any point in it. But maybe its the ol' "if you find a product stupid, you are not the target audience"

That Deluxe boot looks like it would be fun to try. I read somebody say that they felt that full hard boots was too much response, so maybe that boot would reduce the responsiveness just enough. 

Could feel weird once the upper softens up though.

Comfort, softer medial and lateral  flex allowing the use of lower binding angles than with regular hardboots, direct connection and responsiveness of the plastic lowers and plate bindings, and probably compatible with Intec heels for real step-in use without the need to bend over to get in or out of the bindings.

Made it from Paradise lot to Camp Muir yesterday on the Venture Paragon split. Beautiful day and snow up top was quite nice, not much suncups or runnels. Got a bit sticky lower down even with the fresh wax.

Much less coverage than last year around this time, soon will be a bit of a hike to get to snow from the lot and I find it very hard to convince myself when I can't skin up from the car...

Has anyone else had issues with Union Expedition FC heel ladders? Took mine out touring yesterday and they constantly fall down/collapse!

Ladders can only “fall” when not strapped around your boot, in which case it doesn’t matter anyway, so I might not be understanding the issue?
