Forty Below® Fresh Tracks™ overboot is designed specifically for use
with Alpine Touring ski boots, telemark ski boots, snowboard boots, and
double shelled mountaineering boots. It has been patterned to enable it
to be easy to open and close over the top of the cuffs and buckles of
ski boots. A unique design in the sole, toe and heel enable these to be
used in a wide range of Alpine Touring ski bindings, crampons, and
enables the user to easily modify the overboot to co-operate with the
Dynafit ski binding in a touring/walking mode. This is done by cutting 3
small opening holes in the neoprene insulation to allow the binding
pins to go through and connect with the boot.
The body of the Fresh Tracks™ overboots uses a special nylon covered,
4.7 mm stretchy neoprene closed cell foam insulation, with 2 layers of
heat reflecting Titanium, which goes completely around and above the
boot, with no gaps in the insulation. The sole insulation is the same
material in a 2.5mm thickness, making it thin enough to be use with
Dynafit ski bindings in the touring mode. The insulation panels are
glued together, and also stitched on the inside and outside surface,
with no sewn through seams. They fit trim to the boot, and are not
bulky. The instep area has a Cordura nylon ski edge/crampon patch.
Included with the overboots is a closed cell foam insert to add
insulation to the overboot when using with crampons. This will aid in
reducing conductive heat loss through the bottom of the boot.
They fit with a wide range of crampon binding styles such as “step-in”,
“new-matic”, and “strap-on” crampon bindings, as well as wire toe ski
mountaineering bindings.The toe and heel area have small triangular
shape panels made of a slightly thinner neoprene insulation that allows
for many wire toe bails and flip lever heels to simply compress the
insulation and rest on the toe and heel groove of the boot. The toe,
heel, and lower side area of the overboots have a thin rubber paint
applied to add abrasion resistance and help protect the stitching. The
closure is in the front using a large size YKK® HEAVY DUTY zipper, with a
flap underneath to help keep snow out. One of the other great features
of Forty Below® overboots is that they are also easy to repair!
