Long anticipated from the splitboarder community, the Salomon Trek S/Lab Snowboard Boot is the first fully articulated snowboard boot for the serious touring and hiking rider, that still functions as a real snowboard boot for the downhill. All the years of experience under Salomon's belt comes to fruition in the design of the Trek S/Lab, what, with the cuff technology that adjusts between Touring mode for a longer, more efficient and comfortable stride and the Riding mode that tightens and supports through zonal Boa lacing for a fit that excels in steep, technical downhill terrain.
When in Ride mode, the Hike and Ride Boa upper closure system cinches down a secure fit in seconds with the quick twist of a dial, and pairs with the Trek lacing system for independent zonal closures that give you a locked-in feel without any pressure points. You don't lose an ounce of snowboard-feel when going downhill, and the responsive flex is more than ready for gnarly steeps, cliffs, and tight trees. In Touring mode, the Boa releases quickly and the Skin Up liner closure expands its range of motion, allowing the cuff to become fully articulated for a plush uphill adventure with longer strides.
Beyond being the first boot that excels both up and downhill, Salomon gave the Trek S/Lab all the classic features that help it stand out from the crowd. An impact-absorbing Ortholite C3 footbed keeps your dogs quiet and happy as you traverse longer approaches and rip through choppy terrain, while the Full Custom Fit Pro liner uses heat-moldable foam to provide an exact fit to your foot's shape. The wide toe-box delivers superior comfort after spending all day on your feet, even when traversing or using crampons, and the Trek EC+ outsole is as lightweight as it is grippy for reliable traction in sketchy no-fall-zones.
