Description

In 2008, Black Diamond started a revolution in skiing by introducing a freeride-inspired alpine boot with a walk mode. That innovation continues with the new Factor 130. Now with a completely new liner, this powerful boot is warmer, stiffer and better fitting than its predecessor. For skiers who simply need one boot to do it all, this flex 130 boot continues its tradition of no-boundaries, no-compromise skiing performance. The backcountry boot of choice for BD athlete Drew Stoecklein, it includes Alpine Sole Blocks, and is compatible with AT Sole Blocks with integrated tech inserts.

Skier's Choice Draft Picks

Derek Taylor

Round 5 – Boot Selection, AT/Sidecountry/Telemark, Pick 9
I haven’t bought into the ultra-light touring boot yet because most of my touring is still in the half-day range. The Factor 130 is compatible with tech bindings and has a walk mode, but performs like an alpine boot on the descent. The extra weight would be detrimental on a multi-day expedition, but doesn’t affect me on morning tours in Big Cottonwood Canyon or a hike up Teton Pass. I found the flex to be a bit softer than the stated 130, and the BOA system is a little time consuming and perhaps a bit overkill. But overall it’s a good compromise between tourability and downhill performance.
