The Atomic Hawx Prime 120 S GW Ski Boots are a major contender for best "all round freeride boot" for skiers of average or slightly wider foot dimensions. With last season's addition of the Mimic Platinum liner and this year's upgrade to Gripwalk sole pads, the fit and convenience margins of the Hawx Prime 120 continue to soar over the competition. Put yourself in a pair and watch your skiing soar as well.
Last: 100 mm – Designed for average width feet with average and slightly taller insteps.
Memory Fit – Advanced heat-fitting technology creates a fully personalized shell, cuff and liner in minutes. The key is Memolink, Atomic's special additive that improves the moldability and stretch of their plastics. Expansion can be up to 6mm forefoot width and up to 10mm ankle width, resulting in a permanent and complete anatomical fit in minutes. See your bootfitter for details.
Flex: 120 – A stiff flex for great power and response, suitable for fast and aggressive skiers.
True Flex – Atomic's unique True Flex additive helps PU and Grilamid shells maintain a consistent flex and feel in a wide variety of temperatures.
Mimic Platinum Liner – This is a boot that feels right from the very start. The heel, ankle, and tongue feature a layer of supportive, heat-moldable material. After being softened in the oven, this material mimics the precise shape of your foot and hardens for a perfect custom fit.
3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation – Keeps feet warm and responsive even in extremely cold and damp conditions.
Shell Materials & Design
Prolite – Instead of starting with a standard construction and cutting material away to save weight, Prolite does the opposite. It starts with the slimmest possible profile and then builds up reinforcements in key areas where strength is needed - like the Energy Backbone down each boot spine.
Energy Backbone – A reinforced, asymmetric backbone providing extra strength for powerful skiing plus enhanced lateral energy transmission for better edge grip.
Shell – True Flex Polyurethane
Cuff – Polyurethane
Forward Lean – 15˚
Power Shift – Forward lean can be quickly adjusted to 13°, 15° (default) or 17° as well as the flex index by +/- 10 flex points.
