Maggie Voisin, Mathilde Gremaud, Caroline Claire, Taylor Lundquist… the list of athletes repping Full Tilt’s Soul Sister 100 is stacked. Their popularity comes as no surprise given Full Tilt’s roots and subsequent domination in freestyle skiing.
Launched back in 2006, Full Tilt brought about the revival of skiing’s three-piece boot based on the ethos that ‘comfort is performance’. Fifteen years later, a quick scan of skier’s feet in the park pays testament to their strategy’s success.
Full Tilt Soul Sister 100 Build
The Soul Sister 100 is constructed from a shell, spine, and tongue piece. Full Tilt swear by this three-piece construction because of the benefits afforded to the boot’s flex.
Operated by an oversized cuff pivot and enhanced by the ribbed tongue, the boot’s shell flexes infinitely with your ankle joints to accommodate your lower leg’s full range of movement. In doing so, Full Tilt eliminate the shell distortion and your leg’s discomfort provoked when traditional boots are confronted with high impact. In other words, say goodbye to shin bang and hello to afterbang.
“Say goodbye to shin bang and hello to afterbang”
The beauty of Full Tilts is their adjustable flex. A 100 flex tongue instils the Soul Sister 100 with great all-mountain versatility. But if you’re anticipating thumping landing after landing in the park, switch the tongue for a 90, or alternatively, insert a 120 flex tongue if you want to shred groomers hard and fast.
The Soul Sister 100’s shell is lined with a shock absorbent board to pad out your landings. Watch the one and only Mathilde Gremaud stomp the world’s first female switch double cork 1440 in her Soul Sister 100s, and you’ll see just how much your heels can handle in these boots.
The Soul Sister 100s also come with removable Grip Walk plates to preserve the boots’ life (and of course, soul).
