Garmont alpine boots combine superior fit and peroformance in every category. The G_1 was Garmont’ s proving ground, our full-race Formula One machine where we could test and perfect the technologies in the most demanding situations. The G_1 is the state-of-the-art alpine racing boot that combines the highest skiing performance with a custom anatomical fit. Remarkable comfort has been achieved in its close race fit by using Garmont’s a.d.d. design. The G_1’s stiff, performance shell carefully follows the anatomy of the foot as though it’s vacuum-fit or shrink-wrapped around the foot’s natural asymmetry and irregularities. These irregularities, normally punched and stretched by an expert boot fitter, have been built into the G_1 last. Garmont’s innovative Freeride fit was evolved from the full-race G_1 testing ground and its innovative last The Freeride Fit is anatomically correct, closefitting and responsive, with all-day comfort. Out of the box they have that a “custom bootfitter” fit. The Shaman, Astral, G_1 130, and G_2 boast the Freeride Fit.

The Shaman, Astral, G_1 130, G_1 150, and G_2 have innovative details that set them apart from other power freeride, race, and performance alpine boots. They are superior in both comfort and performance, two benefits that rarely travel together.

Garmont’s patented Shock Damper shell has flex ribs in the instep that provide a subtle longitudinal flex that allow it to absorb shock and vibration, resulting in better ski flex and edge hold, with less vibration and chatter.

2

Profile acts Shellas Unique High a double cuff that ties the lower shell and cuff together as one. This high-profile shape improves forward response and offers unprecedented rearward support.

3

Garmont’s superior last is heart of boots: Garmont shells were developed around the foot, not modified to fit the foot as is the case with other low-volume race boots. These shells have already been to the bootfitter, their unique a.d.d. designs shaped to provide: - More room for the first metatarsal - Room for “6th toe” - Room for the navicular bone - Asymmetric malleoli that match the body’s natural asymmetry - A deep, supportive heel cup with space for common heel spurs.

High Profile Cuff maximizes Riveting4 the shell’s High Profile shape by securing the cuff and shell together as one solid, responsive structure. The Contour Cuffis shaped to follow the form of the inner leg to increase contact and eliminate play between the leg and cuff. The result is the quickest response possible with the most leverage and support.

The effective rubber Snow Dam prevents snow from entering lower shell.

6

The Overlap Gutter is a subtle channel that follows the edge of the inner overlap that acts as a channel to funnel water that may enter the lower shell in very wet conditions.

This chart is only a guideline. Foot length is only one of many factors used to determine boot size. Measure foot length with a Brannock device and shell fit. You may need to adjust up or down according to variations in foot volume, skier preference, and intended use. Garmont shells break on the half size - in other words - 27 and 27.5 are in the same size shell. 28 is the next largest shell.
