One of a host of new side- and backcountry-ready boots built to handle aggressive descents, the Hurricane comes ready to step into alpine or AT bindings and includes lugged soles for ski mountaineering. The boots weigh only eight pounds, four ounces per pair but earned tester praise for their downhill power and ability to drive big skis over challenging terrain—inbounds and out. Scarpa’s PowerBlock walk/ski mechanism is exceptionally rigid in ski mode but allows plenty of ankle articulation for striding uphill. Warm, light Intuition liners provide a custom fit. The Booster strap acts like another buckle, making this rip-ready charger exceptionally responsive. [$739; scarpa.com]

The Endorphin, often attached to Marker Duke bindings, has been luring ever more alpiners into the backcountry since its debut a few years ago. It blends 130-flex support and performance with basic tourability—a comfy 103-millimeter last, a ski/walk mechanism, optional mountaineering soles, and light weight.

The top-performing women’s Krypton comes with two liner choices: ID, the foot-wrapping Intuition liner for women with warmth and fit issues; and a traditional ready-to-ski liner. As with any Krypton, the narrow fit, progressive flex, and lower hinge point define its performance.

Plake’s baby gets the most out of the cabrio construction. In walk mode, it has unusually long fore-aft flexibility for a natural stride. The Free version is quite substantial; the tech-compatible Tour a little lighter, with a 100-ish flex; the Lite, also with tech inserts, is the touring specialist.

For the aggressive big-mountain skier looking for a snug fit, the Squad Pro offers race-bred performance with a grippy, hike-ready sole. The forward lean is fairly pronounced, suiting it well to an attacking style. The liner is handsomely crafted with comfortable materials.

Part of the Dobermann race collection, the new Spitfire offers race-type fit and performance in an all-mountain flex. Consider also the HR Pro 125, which is an all-mountain version virtually indistinguishable in performance.
