Fresh from the engineering minds at HO, for our buddies that don't run 35' Off but love skiing, is the 2011 Basis Boot. The Basis' lean profile minimizes drag on both sides no matter how deep you're holding you edge. The EXO liner and free floating tongue are encased in a composite textile shell delivering comfort and durability. Dual lace zones provide an easy in and out experience, on the platform or in the water. With a 17cm cuff height the Basis is forgiving helping those that don't get to take sets daily and are simply looking for a comfortable ski boot.
