The Head Crux Pro Boot might be having a bit of an identity crisis. Two buckles and a power strap on a stiff and supportive upper cuff are reminiscent of an alpine boot, but the tongueless construction and wave closure on the lower sit firmly in highly efficient touring boot territory. Drawing inspiration from various corners of the ski boot world, it's a very intentional design choice by Head, and the result is a boot that combines strong downhill performance with remarkable tourability. The LYT* Dynamic Frame provides power transmission throughout the entire boot with reinforced connections between the lower shell, cuff, and ski/walk mechanism. Flipping the walk lever upwards unlocks an ample range of motion for easy skinning while the wave closure keeps your foot seated firmly in the lower. Head has utilized Pebax Rnew in the boot's shell, a light and strong bio-plastic sourced from castor seeds that retain its physical properties throughout a wide range of temperatures, for a product that is both eco-conscious and resilient to the harsh weather you may encounter on your adventures. A Vibram Durastep outsole keeps your feet firmly planted when you're booting or crossing a treacherously slick parking lot. The Crux Pro is a precise downhill tool that also provides an excellent experience on the skin track as well.

  • Alpine-like cuff with a cam-lock power strap provides excellent downhill power.
  • LYT Dynamic Frame throughout the boot gives a direct and precise feel.
  • Moldable liner with reinforced tongue and upper cuff for additional stiffness.
  • Pebax Rnew and recycled carbon fibers used in the boot are light, strong, and eco-friendly.
  • Vibram Durastep outsole prevents unintentional slippage.
  • RECCO rescue reflectors provide an additional level of discoverability in an avalanche.

* We presume LYT should be pronounced "Light", but could alternatively stand for "Lean Y-Bracket Technology", "Lil Yachty Tugboat", or any number of things.
