Salomon’s snowsports heritage is in alpine skiing, which shows in the MTN Explore touring boot. It’s evident in the way the boot skis, encouraging your progression as a skier into bigger terrain or higher speeds. Incorporating a more progressive flex than the Lab, the Explore is also lighter and walks better. The skiing is equally supportive. A lightweight, moldable Full Thermo CF 3D Liner aids in ankle articulation and downhill control. The oversized 24mm cuff pivots boosts power transfer and lateral edging stability, but also increases durability so you can count on your gear when you need it most. We’re not entirely sure if the MTN Explore is a freeride boot that went on a touring-diet, or a touring boot that went on a freeride-diet, but we do know that we like it. This is the better touring boot versus the blue Lab, yet it doesn’t disappoint in the skiing department.

  • Two lightweight aluminum buckles are positioned perfectly to stay out of the way during a technical booter and provide a level of micro-adjustability for the perfect fit.
  • Salomon's Touring Carbon Spine is stiff, reduces flex, and still lightweight.
  • 63° of fore/aft articulation makes the MTN Explore very dexterous in the weight category.
  • Surelock mechanism is a small single throw lever, hidden on the spine for clean, worry-free transitions.
  • Burly 24mm pivots are sturdy and enhance both the climbing and downhill experience.
  • Backcountry Magazine's Gear Guide Select Award in 2017.
  • America's Best Bootfitters Best of Test Award in 2016.

Question from Bill
I am on my third set of Salomon Quest 120's for my down hill adventures. Absolutely love them: fit and warmth are perfect. Can I expect the same fit (Mondo 27.5) from the Salomon Mtn Explore as I get from the Quest? Thanks in advance. Bill
Answer from Nate
Hi Bill, I believe that if you like the Quest 120, you will probably find a happy fit in the same size MTN Explore.
