Full Tilt Ski Boots
Full Tilt can be traced back to a man jumping on a conference table in the late 1970s. A former employee of NASA figured how to use the design of space suit boot to make a better fitting, more comfortable and generally functionally better ski boot. He took his design to Switzerland where Raichle was headquartered. Unsure of this new prototype boot versus the standard ski boot of the time, the man put Raichle’s current boot on one foot and his prototype on the other. He hopped up on the conference table and demonstrated the way these boots flexed. And thus, the 3-Piece Boot was born.Read More
The 3-Piece Boot prototype hit the market in the winter of 1980 and quickly became not only a hit, but the new standard of ski boots. Throughout the early 1980s the 3-Piece ski boots stood unmatched in Olympic races, world cup races and freestyle competitions. Four years later, at the Olympics in Sarajevo, the 3-Piece Boot was being worn by a skier named Bill Johnson who took home the gold.
Full Tilt’s designs are unique yet proven. Instead of buckles on some of their boots, they have cables which offer a smooth, even pressure which effectively eliminates dead spots. Convertible tongues and free flexing cuffs add to their arsenal of technology and make them a must have for amateurs and pros alike.
Full Tilt has dozens of pros in the freeride, freestyle and Olympic categories like Seth Morrison, Tom Wallisch and Henrik Harlaut who have provided their input and released pro models of their own. And still that Olympian, Bill Johnson, loves riding in a Full Tilt.
The Full Tilt Ski Boots deliver the performance that the pros crave and they’ve kept this 3-Piece Boot in their arsenal because every year it’s the desired choice. Always making award-winning boots, Full Tilt Ski Boots have stood the test of time meeting the demands of skiers for over 30 years and will surely keep it up for another 30.
If there’s a motto that Full Tilt uses to help create, design and implement their ski boots, it would be: Comfort is Performance.
