Full Tilt Boots First Chair 8 Ski Boot Awards

When neither performance nor power can be compromised, the Full Tilt First Chair 8 steps up to the challenge on piste or out of bounds. We've built this performance ski boot on the FTS chassis, and our Flex 8 Tongue provides a stiff-yet-responsive feel without being cumbersome. As Bryce Phillips told us, “the cable system distributes pressure evenly,” so you nearly forget you’re in a ski boot. You’re dedicated to your craft – let the First Chair 8 take you to the next level.

“These are the lightest boot I have ever used – it makes a big difference when you are hiking urban or powder, you can go the extra mile and make a good day even better!”
Will Wesson
