If you want a simple backcountry touring boot that walks and skis well, check out the Hagan Core. Loaded with marketing acronyms (below), the Core boots aren’t loaded with complexity. A micro-adjustable lower buckle uses a wire to get the effect of multiple buckles locking your heel and forefoot in place. An infinitely adjustable upper Velcro booster strap acts as the top buckle. A..
The Ultralight liners from Palau are designed for skimo racing boots and other high performance applications. With an overlap design, they hug your calves while keeping the snow off your socks. The highly-rated EVA foam is thermo-moldable and adapts to your ankle movement. They are secured at the top with an elastic strap. The Palau ultralights are designed to be compatible with Al..
Palau liners are made with 100% highly rated EVA foam. The thermo-moldable foam is closed-cell which maximizes thermal retention. Palau make their liners with a dense cut of the foam that retains its shape after a heat mold or some skiing. That is why they were chosen as the liner supplier for Dynafit, La Sportiva, and other well-known boot brands. Now you can get replacement liner..
Deciphering Palau’s designation “Powertrack 10” is straightforward. The number 10 indicates the generous 10mm thickness. The “Power” comes from the mid-density EVA foam that is designed to boost your boot’s skiing performance. “Track” is short for “skintrack”, meaning the liners are pre-approved for uphill travel. The liners are so comfy you’ll want to ski 8 days per week, keeping ..
Palau took their All Track collection to the next level by offering a new “power” liner in a slimmer package. Working off the mighty Powertrack 10, they shaved the liner down to 8mm to allow its use in tighter-fitting and more articulate boots. Using a medium density heat-moldable EVA foam, Palau made the Power LT a precise fitting liner to boost the performance of any boot. Whethe..
Closed-cell EVA foam is known for its ability to hold a mold. That means after having your liners heat molded, it won’t start to return to a former shape and crowd your feet. The foam is also warmer than some other liner materials and is very dense which helps in high-performance skiing. All Intuition liners are made with specially formulated close-cell EVA foam, which is why they ..
If Febreeze is no longer a match for your liners, it may be time for a replacement. It’s also time if you’ve ripped out the tongue, completely worn them through at the rivets, or packed them out beyond recognition. Look for replacement Dynafit liners here, all of which are thermo-moldable (TF) so may even fit other boots.

Racing and touring is hard on liners. Sweat builds up; articulation causes chaffing. Replace your SCARPA boot liners with a fresh pair, listed below by model.
Alien 1.0 - Intuition Light liner is as snug as a sock. In fact, you have to put it on before putting on the shell. Moldable, but thin so you won’t get too much extra room.

Seal up your race boots with gaiters from Crazy Idea. The CI gaiters keep snow off your liners, which is especially nice when you’re using race boots for adventure skiing. The gaiters are locked in place with stirrups and stretch-woven fabric. There are cutout areas for Dynafit UltraLock, Alien, and Syborg boot buckle systems. This means you don’t have to futz with your pants when ..
The extra-terrestrial design of the SCARPA Alien / Alien 1.0 boots has one major consequence of shaving all those grams: the liner is exposed to the elements. Remedies include wearing skin-tight suits with stirrups, using this handy gaiter, or only skiing in the summer. The simple waterproof membrane slides over your boot and helps keep out that annoyingly soft "powder" snow that n..
Here lies some common hardware that can be useful in keeping your alpine touring ski boots in working order.
Chicago Rivets - Sold individually, these rivets screw together so you don't need a press to fix riveted buckles and other parts. The flush heads are gentle on plastic and carbon fiber. Use with Vibratite to keep the rivets from unscrewing. Three lengths available: 3/16",..
Light ski boots tend to be made with thinner plastic and liners. That means you have less material insulating you from the cold. Instead of going heavier for warmth, just slip on some hip boot gloves. These neoprene insulators have simple elastic Velcro straps that securely wrap around a ski boot to add warmth. They block the wind and trap air which acts as insulation. The Boot Glo..
The only drawback to the Speed Nose on the Dynafit TLT7 boots is that it doesn’t support crampons with automatic toe bails (the simple wire that wraps around the toe welt). The solution is to get a semi-automatic crampon, or modify your auto with this adapter. Remove the simple wire bail and replace it with this gizmo that fits into the toe fittings and securely wraps over the top ..

Cuff pivot points are a typical wear point on alpine touring ski boots. Constant motion around the pivots causes friction that can slowly erode the surrounding material. This eventually leads to some play around the pivots, which can make skiing less precise. B&D Ski Gear has come through with a solution to this problem in the form of metal-on-metal pivots that are hard enough ..
A Fit Kit consists of a pair of Intuition socks and flexible toe caps. Put the caps over your toes and insole, and then slide the whole setup into the socks. They are now ready to mold and will give your toes some space to breathe, which is key when skinning uphill. This DIY kit can be used at home if you’re brave enough to heat your own liners, either in an oven or with a bag of h..
