The new XT3 Tour from Lange has packaged all the necessities of a ski boot for the regular customer, into a lightweight touring boot that provides an unrivalled flex pattern, and Lange’s famous fit, for long days on the hill.

With ski touring becoming even more popular since the lockdowns of ski resorts all over the world (you remember those), Lange have targeted this boot at the people who are looking to continue skiing completely new areas of the mountain away from the piste markers. 

Built for the advanced/expert skier, this boot comes with a flex of 130. This is leaning to the top end flex rating for men’s ski boots, and will give an ideal ride for aggressive or heavier riders. Coming in at 99mm last, the boot sits almost directly in the middle of the width range.

The customisable grilamid shell will allow the boot to be tailored to varying foot types by your local ski boot specialist. For less isolated pains and general comfort, the Thermo-Moldable liner can also be moulded to the foot straight out of the box for a more intuitive fit that will offer high levels of insulation at a reduced weight. 

By using lightweight plastics with friction free hinges, Lange have optimised the uphill performance in this boot when bootpacking or skinning. They’ve also used their Dual Core Technology and Active Power V-Lock to ensure maximum power transmission and precision into the ski on the downhill.

Lange’s new patented V-Lock technology provides an added 11 degrees in range of movement, when in hike mode, to make your strides more efficient and save more of your energy on the uphill (so you’ll have more of it to spend on blasting turns on the way down).

As hike and ride becomes ever more popular, Lange have delivered an extremely versatile boot for skiers looking to prioritise comfort. The XT3 Tour Pro, it’s worth saying, would be more appropriate for the more advanced riders that may already have the experience and can maximise performance.

With a friction free hinge whilst touring and an easy entry shell construction for those cold mornings, this boot is guaranteed to provide maximum comfort on even the longest days. What’s more, it will do so without sacrificing the downhill performance that can sometimes happen when developing touring boots in today’s market.
