The original Procline Carbon boot took a novel step. It’s split-cuff design offered unique range of motion, allowing never-before-seen lateral movement for off-camber skinning and climbing. Arc’Teryx has continued to refine the design and has pushed the envelope further with the Procline AR Carbon. This boot is for those wishing to drive a bigger ski than the original could handle, but still want the range-of-motion and snug fit. The AR Carbon has an integrated Grilamid tongue to stiffen the forward flex and increase the boots downhill prowess. It scarcely affects the walk-mode and may even improve certain types of climbing. Arc’Teryx also upgraded the shell material, using Ultramid in the lower to increase the stiffness of the boot. The Procline AR Carbon is the boot that many are seeking, especially those still holding onto their TLT5s. Uninhibited climbing with stiffness, strength and power for the descent.
- Rigid, responsive Ultramid shell offers durability and sports-car performance.
- Warm, thermoformable Ultralon closed cell liner with cuff and tongue reinforcements.
- 110 Flex gives dramatically improved ski-ability versus the original Procline Carbon.
- Aluminum Cam Lock Power Strap is quick to tighten or loosen during transitions.
- Rigid tongue for increased stiffness and downhill support.
- Integrated gaiter protects from snow and wetness.
- Wider cuff buckle for increased power distribution.
- Vibram sole keeps you glued to the ridgelines.

Questions & Reviews
Has it be disconctinued entirely (by Arcteryx)? Or have you just found they don't sell since they're so specialized?
Still on the lookout for something to replace my TLT5s!
I've worn MP29 in 6 different Dynafit boots; I wear a 28.5 in the Scarpa F1. Hiking boots/bike shoes are US 11, EU 44.5-45. My best fitting hikers are leather Scarpas with PU midsoles. I wear orthotics: 1 custom, green Superfeet, black Superfeet, and Specialize BG. Several reviews, and my wife's experience say some people have to go up 1 full size; what do you think for me?
TLT5 M was a good performance fit, but after a couple of years caused an aggravated metatarsal bump on my right foot.
Mercury was an outstanding performance fit with molding the OEM liner and with a punch for the metatarsal bump.
TLT6 M was a good comfort fit. After wearing out the OEM liner and replacing it with a Palau Tourlite, I had to go to a thinner footbed to reduce pressure on the top of my foot untill the liner was more broken in.
Scarpa F1 is a good to slightly loose in the heel comfort fit.
So what are the chances of me getting a good, not loose, not overly tight fit out of the box or with a little home rice-method thermomolding in the 29/29.5 Arc'teryx Procline AR Carbon?
Will the Procline be a significantly more aggressive downhill boot than the Scarpa F1 (which I find superior to the TLT6 downhill, but inferior for skinning)?
From what I can tell it seems the Movement boot would not necessarily augment performance overall (skinning or downhill) over the F1?
Size 29 would be your size, but is it the right width. Judging from your comments, most likely a Performance fit. The Procline would be the narrowest of the bunch. Without trying on, hard to tell if a punch would be all you need to make it work. From all the feedback we have received , it would ski better then the F1, how much more...
The Movement would be very comparable to the F1.
