Most Villain – New Edit from Henrik Harlaut & Noah Albaladejo
“Henrik Harlaut is arguably the biggest name in skiing right now and Noah Albaladejo might well be the industry’s fastest rising star. By my count this is his third absolute banger edit in the last few months, not bad for a time of year when pros traditionally take a break. The two villains have combined for the second time this year to drop a insane edit sure to melt your face. Most Villain is inspired by music from MF Doom & Madlib’s album ‘Madvillain'”. – Adam Spensley / Newschoolers
This season, you’ll be able to visit a number of shops in Europe who are now a certified Pro Shop for Full Tilt products. What does that mean? Well – you’ll be able to check out each location and get up to date info on all the latest boots from FT from knowledgeable staff. Additionally, you’ll have access to a wide selection of parts to upgrade and customize your ski boots.
Full Tilt’s Descendant Series features the all-new Evolution Shell – a 102 width ski boot designed for comfort & performance for those who have a wider footprint while still incorporating the original DNA of the 3-piece design. From the sole up, this ski boot is something special. It features a 102mm width, rubber soles for added traction and durability with an upgraded buckle system for easy on & off.
I have really become a fan of the boots and I can completely understand why so many people choose to ride them. Landings are more comfortable and I still feel I have enough support from the tongue to do everything I would in a stiffer overlap boot. The comfort is I think the biggest factor, I could ski everything in the park the same I would in an overlap but the Descendant just offers more comfort, which if it does not come at the cost of performance I’m all for. – NS.com
