For Old Times’ Sake: Get Full Tilt Boots

Posted By: The Ski Channel on June 5, 2009 2:36 pm

Raichle Flexon Comps used to be besty’s among the skiing elite. They blew away the rear-entry competition (those red Salomons), and were a staple among freestyle skiers and budding freeriders. Loved for their slightly upright stance (which helps produce more leverage), lightweight (to ease big airs), and natural, integrated flex pattern, they were THE must-have boot of the Eighties and early Nineties. But then they sort of disappeared.

Enter Full Tilt, a relatively new team of built builders who snapped up the original Raichle molds, then used and improved them. Thanks to Full Tilt, three-piece boots are now back in action.

The company offers over a half dozen models, each with different levels of tongue stiffness (flex) and bootboard rigidity. The old Flexon graphics have also been updated, with funky colors and graphics (like camo) Freeriders are already snapping these puppies up, so check them out and pamper your dogs’ next season in old-school style.
