ATOMIC LIVE FIT 80 2018
ATOMIC LIVE FIT 80 2018
The Atomic Live Fit 80 makes a great boot for the beginner to solid intermediate skier that has a tall instep, medium to wide forefoot, and medium to wide leg shape. Two Live Fit Panels are located on the medial and lateral sides of the foot are made from rubber that take the 102mm last and make the Live Fit 80 feel much wider than that. By having an unrestricted foot your balance, warmth and comfort will improve. The rubber Live Fit Panels will not transfer the cold temperatures through them the same way plastic does to keep you warmer on the slopes. Two Mega Buckles are made from durable 6000 Series Aluminum, and are oversized to provide you with adequate tension, and they are very easy to open and close. If you have a foot that has never been comfortable in standard boots, the unique Atomic Live Fit 80 is the boot for you.
80 Flex Index: This boot has a flex rating of 80, which is moving out of the softer-entry level boots and into the stiffer more advanced ski boots. A boot of this flex is appropriate for a wide range of skiers, from lower intermediates looking to improve to expert skiers who want a more casual flex.
102-106mm Last: This shell width of this boot is automatically adjustable (thanks to the Live Fit System), and is perfect for recreational skiers, those with average to wide feet, and skiers that like comfort for their feet. That probably makes up 95 percent of the skiing population.
Live Fit: The Live Fit system consists of two elastic zones at the forefoot that instantly adapt to the foot width of the skier. The shell adapts between 102 and 106mm, providing a custom type fit without the hassle of heat molding and expensive shell modifications. Basically, this feature makes these boots fit almost any skier.
Mega Buckles: Instead of the standard 4 buckle system (or sometimes 3), this boot has two oversized buckles that get the same pulling power and fit, with less stuff to worry about. One buckle over the top of the foot- done, one buckle above the ankle- done... Time to start skiing.
Single Micro Exicenter canting: Single canting on the outside of the ankle that will help correct an uneven ski platform. The adjuster stays right in the center, and pivots the boot without changing the fit or flex of the boot.
Tongue Pull: A loop of fabric at the top of the tongue helps in putting on and removing the boots. Pull it forward and to the side and your foot should slide right in.
Macro adjust ladder: The tooth plate opposite the top buckles can be moved in or out for a huge range of adjustment, and to fit narrow to wide lower legs.
Replaceable Toe and Heel Pads: This is a must-have for skiers that don't live in ski in/ski out condos. When your ski tech tells you that you have to buy new boots because the soles are worn down too much, just laugh at him and tell him to order you a new set of sole plates.
Atomic ASY Sport Liner: Atomic's ASY (Asymmetrical) Sport liner is a bit softer than the highest end Atomic liner, but this is essentially the second best one. These boots are ergonomically fitted, liner can be thermomolded to your foot, with specific adjustments in ankle and forefoot areas. Also its fuzzy and warm. You should be pretty damn comfy in these.
