Before using the Stratos³ Cube boots in a World Cup race, be sure to weigh them and make sure they are over the 500g (17.64 oz) minimum weight mandated for shells plus dry inners by the International Ski Mountaineering Federation. The smaller sizes with the bikini liner will be cutting it close. Using a KarbonKevlar composite found in top of the line Formula 1 race cars, the Stratos Cube boots are a more durable shell than full carbon fiber boots at an even more shocking weight. If cutting corners to save some money isn't your thing, you might want to check out the latest creation from the La Sportiva team.

  • 100% KarbonKevlar cuff and shell, an ultralight abrasion resistant composite.
  • Patented CavoBike lever is a unique Ergal hinge system that provides stiffness and simple transitions.
  • Special Bikini Cube liner weighs just 80g (2.8oz) and Velcros snugly around your foot and calf.
  • Unique closure buckle has three macro settings with a dynamic cable for micro-regulation.
  • Optional rear spoiler included (+20g) to add a bit of stack height in the rear.
  • 5 forward lean positions from 5° to 19° lock into a receiving notch that doesn't contact the composite material.
  • Special bushing system prevents abrasion between cuff and shell during rotation.
  • Crampon compatible with an adjustable ring in the rear to get an exact fit.
  • Thin Vibram sole uses an anti-abrasion compound in the toe and heel for extra durability.
  • Zippered gaiter with adjustable inner straps protect your liners and socks from water while being easy to get in and out of.
  • Removeable Warm Sole sock liner adds some insulation while allowing for volume customization.

Question from Joey D
 
Can the lower shells of the stratos be fitted? I'm guessing not, but am still curious.

Hey Joey, full carbon boots aren't workable in the same way as plastic ones. I'm not going to say impossible but it's certainly a big challenge.
