Atomic’s New Hawx Ultra 130 Is Crazy Light And Easily Customizable

Jake Strassburger from Atomic introduces the brand's new Hawx Ultra boot, a 98-mm last, 130-flex bruiser of a boot that weighs in at just 1,600 grams. It utilizes Atomic's Memory Fit process, which cooks the shell and molds it to your feet in about 15 minutes – really fast for a custom-fit shell.

The boot also sports a ton of customizable adjustments, from flex to forward lean to canting and even shims you can slot under the boots sole – a process that would normally require a bootfitter to physically grind away the sole of your boot.

The Send Stops for No One: SKIBIKE

You might surprised to learn that skibiking is a thing at all.
