The Kita-W Hybrid is ideal for big days in any conditions, on all types of terrain. The gold standard premium all-mountain boot in our line, it’s packed with technical features, made for shredding first lift ‘til last. Kita-W Hybrid uses traditional laces. They’re beloved because of their reliability and simplicity, with precision coming from that morning ritual of getting each eyelet perfectly tightened. Our brand new Speed Hook locks in the tension in the lower part once you’ve got it exactly where you want it. On Kita-W Hybrid, we used our Internal Heel Lock technology for ultimate heelhold. A turn of the side BOA® dial tightens the internal harness in three dimensions - interior, exterior and from above, lowering both sides of the tongue downwards and preventing heel lift.
The modern design is inspired by space, polar and mountain expeditions. Most of the components are welded rather than sewn to the upper, giving it a unique seamless build that ups the waterproofing & durability to new levels. We’ve added a tough TPU shield around the front called ArmorTech, to protect your toes when billygoating. Underneath, we used our Vibram Approach outsole to improve traction on cold and icy surfaces, with two EVA inserts for dampening. The whole outsole then connects to the Exo Spine seamlessly, eliminating exposed edges at the back. With a top-of-the-line, heat moldable Wrap-style Asym Gold Liner inside, comfort and support is guaranteed out of the box, and there’s a really consistent flex for superlative performance.The Kita-W Hybrid is built to charge, hard. Durable, rugged performance is the name of the game, perfect for female riders who want to shred the whole mountain without compromise.
