In contrast to the Hoji Pro Tour, the Hoji Free is also compatible with alpine ski bindings with its forward lean and modified heel. With its increased rigidity, thanks to a unique Grilamid material with fibreglass, and its progressive flex of 130, the Hoji Free possesses all of the characteristics to deliver the best power transfer and top downhill performance. With a last width of 102 mm, three micro-adjustable buckles and the Ultra Lock Strap, the foot sits ideally positioned. In downhill mode, the Hoji Free locks out at a forward lean of 17 degrees thanks to a spoiler at the cuff and thus offers a comfortable, yet still athletic and controlled ski position – be it to press, carve or slash. An optional 11 degrees can be achieved by the removal of the spoiler. On the ascent, free tourers also get extra benefits: The V-shaped tongue and a cuff rotation of 55 degrees means maximum freedom of movement, flexibility and comfort. This enables a natural, energy-saving walking motion even on very steep terrain. With its light weight of just 1,550 grams, a few extra metres of extra vertical vert won’t be an issue for the Hoji Free since you’ll still have enough strength left to enjoy a well-earned descent. One special feature of the Hoji Free is the new thermo-mouldable Hoji Free Liner by footbed, boot-fitting and foot specialty brand Sidas. This will be exclusively available in the coming season in the DYNAFIT Hoji Free. This liner can be custom-moulded to fit your foot and offers the best-possible climbing performance as well as on the descent. It is impressive with its lightness and comfort, and it positions and firmly cradles the foot with precision and security. These characteristics make the liner the first choice for the Hoji Free and underscores the unique selling point on the market of this free touring boot. To ensure ski tourers can approach the perfect line over rocks and icy flanks, the Hoji Free comes equipped with the POMOCA Free Sole. This sole has impressive grip and optimal hold when walking out of the binding and at the same time is especially sturdy and long-lasting. Thanks to the toe lug the ski touring boot is compatible with fully automatic crampons. Last but not least, the Hoji Free is also equipped with the proven Quick Step-In insert for easier entry into the frameless tech binding even on rougher terrain. The Hoji Free, just like other models in the Hoji family, is made completely in Italy. Ski hard & walk easy – one move to switch.
