The updated version of the Sideral boot provides 2.0 times the refinement. La Sportiva borrowed its slick Pegasus buckles from the Spectre to refine the lower buckle closure. A new lower-shell mold has a refined shape, allowing more feet to fit in. Sportive also added new S3 Inserts™ that refine the compatibility. Now you can step into frame bindings, tech bindings, and even the Trab TR2 binding with the same boot. The Sideral 2.0 keeps the most functional parts of the previous version, including the LazerGrip soles, Fast Lock closure system, and lightweight Tour liners. The blend of old and new make for an even better all-around ski mountaineering and touring boot that is light enough to race in recreationally. The Sideral 2.0 is made in Italy, a country shaped like a boot which thusly knows how to make good ones.
- Vertebra Technology™ provides a stiff link from the cuff to lower shell for good performance.
- Cam Closure System™ is a one-motion ski/walk transition protected from snow by a window.
- LazerGrip™ by Davos soles have excellent traction and hardened rubber in high-wear areas.
- WarmSoles™ are removable polyurethane inserts that insulate your feet from the snow.
- Compatible with tech (aka Dynafit), frame (aka step-in), and TR2 (aka cool) bindings.
- Grilamid® lower shell and PA12 nylon upper are a good combo of lightweight performance.
- Pegasus buckles let you fine-tune the lower shell fit to get you heel seated securely.
- Forward lean is adjustable between three positions so you can adapt the boot to your style.
- EZ Thermo™ touring liners are lightweight and can be molded with heat or just some skiing.
- New lower shell mold has less rocker so as to fit more feet and crampons.

Questions & Reviews
How is the "flex" on this boot?
Would it be a good boot for regular alpine skiing on a groomed trail, cutting turns on hard snow surface?
I'm touring in a Salomon MTN Explore right now and am pretty frustrated with them, as the forward range of motion is poor (my shins bonk the front of the boot, even with heel lifters engaged, while skinning up moderately steep slopes) and the walk/ski mode lever CONSTANTLY flips back into ski mode while I am touring. Trying to make sure these won't put me in a similar situation, where I'm constantly having to reach down and unlock my boots!
Could you explain which boots are competitors with others? e.g. is the TLT6 performance directly compared with the Sidereal 2.0, etc...? What does the Spectre compare with. It seems like Dynafit, La Sportive and Scarpa should all have a few categories that they compete in. Just wondering which boots go up against what....
