Deeluxe's new backcountry-specific snowboard boot, the Spark Summit, is an ISPO 2013 award winner for good reason. The boot is tailored for high performance riders who seek big, film-worthy backcountry lines. Spark Summit has a grippy Vibram outsole for excellent traction on various surfaces, and for serious ascents, it is compatible with snowshoes and crampons. The C3 Lacing/Boa combo offers a customizable fit. Spark Summit is encased in a genuine leather shell with rubber reinforcement. Its Sympatex membrane effectively regulates moisture to keep feet drier. The Thermo Flex Premium heat moldable liner with a detachable heel harness also helps keep feet comfortable and warm.
