GOLDEN, Colo., Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Apex Ski Boots, the only Two Part Open Chassis + Walkable Boot design in the US market, today announces the worldwide release of its award winning XP Big Mountain Ski Boot. The XP continues the Apex Ski Boot tradition of offering unparalleled comfort, warmth and walkability in a high performance ski boot design. The XP is designed for strong and experienced skiers who are seeking Big Mountain adventure and the ultimate skiing experience. The Apex XP boot is now available through its global distribution network in seven countries and includes over 150 industry-leading retailers.
The XP has several important new features which represent continued improvement and innovation within the unique Apex Ski Boots two-part architecture. First, the XP utilizes a three buckle system and an "open toe" chassis, which allows for a 10 mm shorter boot sole length (BSL). A shorter BSL allows for more efficient energy transfer from the boot to the ski. Second, Apex introduces patent pending "Serpentine Lacing" on its removable walking boot. Serpentine lacing provides a 2:1 leverage advantage for more secure fit, creating powerful heel retention for high performance skiing. The XP is also lighter and stiffer than prior models of Apex boots.
Roger Neiley, Apex co-founder and VP of Product commented: "The new XP offers skiers the 'sweet spot' of a truly comfortable, yet super high performance boot. It's clearly a game-changing product."
In sum, the combination of the new features embedded in the XP allows for a lighter, shorter, stiffer and higher performance boot that will satisfy the most demanding skiers.
The XP was introduced at the 2016 SIA Winter Show and received the prestigious "Show Stopper Award", along with positive reviews and feedback from Apex customers and industry experts. The XP has won other numerous industry awards such as the "Bootfitter's Favorite Award" by America's Best Bootfitters, and the "Innovator Award" also by America's Best Bootfitters.
The Apex XP MSRP is $995.
