The Descendant 8 from Full Tilt features the newest shell incarnation with a little more accommodating fit than the FTO shell. The Evolution Tour Pro shell has a 102mm last that best fits skiers with a medium to narrow foot shape and a medium to narrow shaft of the leg. The Pro Wrap Liner can easily be heated by a ski shop to contour to the shape of your foot for added comfort. New to the Descendant 8 is the ability to have the shell heated and molded to eliminate hot spots or pinch points. A Shock Absorbing boot board smooths out vibrations from big landings or rough terrain. The 8 Flex Tongue offers enough stiffness and power for the most aggressive skiers to enjoy this responsiveness and control. A 45 Degree Heel Lock Buckle keeps your feet locked down and secure as you charge around the entire mountain. If you want the original three piece boot, with a fit for the masses that is packed with power the Full Tilt Descendant 8 is a perfect choice.
