Atomic’s new Tracker 110 W switches from downhill mode to sidecountry-friendly tour mode at the flip of a switch thanks to the Powercontrol release mechanism on the boot’s spine. Rubber “ridge walker” soles make walking and hiking on icy surfaces safer and a lateral insert adapts and expands to fit the troublesome sixth toe area. The boot design favors gravity, however, with a narrow-fitting 98 mm last, carabiner buckle, thick strap and race boot geometry.
