Northwave Men's 2012/2013 Legend SL Snowboard Boots
Our Team’s favourite, it’s our best selling all-mountain boot capable of providing ultimate support for all-mountain domination and giving all the power and energy you will need to stomp landings and ride the hill like a furious spate. The THERMO-WELDED technology allows the LEGEND SL to have an upper without stitches, thus being lighter and totally waterproof. It also enables a perfect combination of different materials with progressive stiffness. The SUPER LACE closure and the 540° heel hold system assures an incredible and precise foot hold and control. If you love superior quality, the LEGEND is perfect for you!! THAT’S IT, THAT’S ALL!!
It is a Speed Lacing System that allows the closure of two different boot areas, the quarter part and the collar part, in order to allow you to select the perfect feeling on each part and improve comfort and a foot stability. Your boot will be closed in few seconds and will stay tight and performing for all the time you need.
The boot laces are passing through a pre-curved lace loop which helps the lace minimizing their friction. When the laces are pulled to close the boot, they are at the same time pulling the webbings where the lace loops are linked. In this way the webbings shrink around the ankle increasing heel stability. They can do this operation in a perfect way thanks to the fact that the webbing is passing through a hole from the side of the boot directing the pressure of closure all over the ankle area. The more the lace is pulled the more power will be transferred in the ankle area increasing the heel retention performance and foot stability.
This outsole guarantees comfort and high performance with maximum weight reduction. Innovative technology designed by HYPERSHOCK allows you to find strong holding traction even on the most slippery ice. The crossbow system helps you absorb the impact when hitting the biggest booters.
Lining material in Thermo-Fit Foam with target fit zones that can catalyze instantly with a heater or over time from natural body heat. - Toe area without seems for a better comfort on the feet. - Durable webbing stitched on the liner helps heel retention and foot stability distributing power of transmission all over the liner surface. - Metal eye loops for a perfect sliding of laces to improve liner closure. - Comfortable EVA footbed with side supports for a better thermal insulation and for shock absorption. - Inner pocket to store your liner laces after closure. - Available also in woman version with a specific woman last and shaped cut in the calf area.
The new Thermowelded Piping is totally new and unique in snowboard boot production. This technology brings Northwave distinct advantages both in terms of enabling us to integrate different materials and maintain an ‘element beating’ seamless outsole. This is particularly important in the ankle zone where there is no interruption of the upper boot technology bringing you, the rider, progressive support from the heel to the calf. The visible cross differentiates the three zones: below the cross the support is strong, to the side the support decreases and above the cross it becomes lighter still.
