A Precision Fit Ski Boot Like No Other

If you’ve shopped for ski boots before, you’ve likely experienced fumbling with clunky buckles on the hill – gloves off, freezing hands trying to adjust from tight to loose. The truth is – sizing and the ultimate snug performance fit depends on multiple factors. Think: body temperature, weather, socks and your boot care routine. 


But BOA® and Salomon now have a solution. A solution that has revolutionised fit – no matter your foot shape or the conditions.

Here's What We Think

Unlike traditional buckles that press down on the roof of your foot, the BOA® system collaborates with Salmon’s EXOWRAP system providing a more harmonised wrap around your foot, ensuring a snug fit while securely holding your heel in place.


The EXOWRAP system is designed to maximise the BOA® Fit System’s ability to wrap your feet with precision so you feel confident in your foothold. This means no more movement that decreases stability. Both boots are available in a number of great colours for a more personalised look.

You might have seen this system used for snowboard boots and other active footwear like running shoes. And skiers across the globe have pondered whether this technology was up for the task of downhill skiing.


Salomon is one of the pinoneers in premium boot fits since 1979 and BOA® have worked closely with them and other world-leading ski boot manufacturers to develop a ski boot specific fit system that is strong enough to handle fast and furious downhill runs. 


So, whether you’re tearing down the piste or challenging the backcountry, experienced and passionate skiers are trying to find new ways to increase comfort and overall performance, and advances in technology play a huge role in getting this right. 

Fit System Components Explained

The system uses a special dial called the H+i1 Dial Platform, which enables you to tighten and loosen with micro-adjustable precision.


Instead of the too loose or too tight feeling with ordinary buckle systems, this gives you the power to adjust in small increments. The dial is easy to use and for those who get cold hands, there’s no need to remove your gloves. Adjust easily, wearing your gloves in freezing conditions.


The wrap system keeps your heel in place, increasing edge-to-edge control. Designed to handle your most exciting challenges, each lace is made from nineteen strands of stainless steel – wrapped in an additional 90 strands – that’s greater than 254 kg of tensile strength!

Customising Your S/Pro Supra

Another great aspect of this boot is almost every part of it is customisable. For a boot fitter – this is great news. 


- The custom Shell HD process lets boot fitters personalise to the boot’s lower shell or cuff in just under 10 minutes. 

- The tongue can be taken apart and customised, allowing for perfect instep height adaptation.

- Boot fitters can access every part of the boot when working on it because the toothplate, strap, buckles and oversized pivot are screwable.
