2012 Black Diamond Quadrant Boot
Black Diamond’s premier 4-buckle free touring boot, the Black Diamond Quadrant Ski Boot defies convention by bringing skiing performance and stiffness previously reserved for freeride boots to the touring weight range. Designed with technical mountains like La Grave in mind, where long climbs lead to no-fall-zone skiing, this ski boot matches touring comfort and minimal weight with the power and performance to drive big, 95 mm-plus waisted skis in high-consequence terrain. Thanks to its patent-pending Pivoting Cuff Technology, the Black Diamond Quadrant Ski Boot has introduced a new level of performance in a lightweight ski boot.
