Deeluxe ground control

Recommended Posts

Anyone see these new hybrid deeluxe?  I think it’s a cool idea for soft boots hybrid but was cautious due to the unclear stiff uppers against hard boot bottoms.  And $600k price.  
 

anyone try these?

Personally id say there to soft for anything but powder or mild riding. The flex is through deformation of the shell so they will break down just like how a soft boot does. As a result and them not being that stiff in the first place youll probably only get a season at most out of them before there to floppy to ride in and for a boot thats retailling at £469 its way way to much. Cool idea but to soft and to pricey.

This is super interesting to me. Looks like these came out a year ago and I never noticed. Thanks for sharing the other thread @lonbordin and you personal review @scottishsurfer
 

I have been a softbooter forever and have been trying to convert since last year. I feel like this is the type of transition gear that I need.
 

To tl;dr some of my personal history, I found myself some used hardboot gear and got started. With about 7 days under my belt, I broke my lead ankle (medial malleolus) on a green trail practicing 5 days ago. Maybe this would have been a better transition for me from softbooting than starting with full hardboots. 
 

There are a lot of lessons to learn and the curve has felt pretty steep. Better to keep learning on the slopes than on my couch.
 

I’d love to hear more about the product if anyone has taken a pair on the snow.

the boots are much less supportive than a hard boot so the injury would be probably be more due to an even more extreme flexation of the ankle
