A mere second can separate losers from champions. For that winning edge, Alpina designed the new Elite 3.0 Skate. Lighter than its predecessors, it offers the best weight to functionality ratio of any boot currently on the market. Built firmly with full carbon cuffing and carbon active edge resting upon an anatomic footbed, this boot holds a tight grip on the foot, supporting it laterally and torsionally even on steeper terrain and through sharp turns. Latest model comes with updated logo text.
A braid angle of 45 Degrees with the lacing system relative to the longitudinal direction of the shoe improves the torsional stability of the soft part of the shoe. This ensures a tight fit between the shoe and the foot in the rotation phase of the shoe toward the inner side when skiing the skating technique. A special, anatomically designed footbed composed of three different materials assures a perfect fit and even distribution of force. The top quality 4DRY material provides water resistance and breathability, making sure that humidity is transported from the inside out, keeping the feet dry and warm.
Behind Elite 3.0 hides the lightest and most responsive cross-country ski boots in the world. For the first time in the world of nordic ski racing the circulation of air enables the foot to remain dry and keeps the power kick at maximum. They are more environmentally friendly too since they are the first boots made without the use of PVC materials and replacing them with more eco-friendly solutions. The Elite 3.0 design was developed by listening closely to top-level racers. And they already gave Alpina the best answer - Stina Nilsson, Linn Svahn, Hans Christer Holund and many others who have already won gold medals in world-class competitions in Alpina’s award-winning shoes.
