You'll see them in the park at Ouray, sending big in Cody, and anywhere the temps plummet. For good reason, too–we love the sensitivity and low weight for steep ice and mixed pitches. Nothing lets you climb better than warm, dry feet. Quick lacing for a customized fit. The same materials as our Himalayan boot, the Phantom 8000–including a redesigned and more durable Flexseal® zipper closure--so you get warmth for extreme environments, but in a svelte, sensitive iteration for objectives demanding precision climbing. The Phantom Tech draws on modern technology to create our most versatile cold-weather boot, at 20% less weight than a traditional leather mountaineering boot.
A version of the DART for those who prefer the added stability and holding power of two front points.
Horizontal structure places the foot as close to the ice as possible: increased sensitivity, more precise placements
Toe bail wire has two positions for perfect fit on all sole thicknesses and can be adjusted to fit technical boots with asymmetrical shapes
The length of the points is designed for maximum stability without having to high-step
Sharp points for great purchase in ice
Forged front point is toothed for precise placements
Two points angled forward to reinforce purchase and give support when front-pointing
Third row of toothed points are inclined backwards for back stepping or using instep
Four teeth for stability when descending while facing downhillLateral points for purchase while traversing
Front section can be replaced if the front points are worn
