Splitboard Test Results


The Deeluxe Spark XV boardfeel is amazing, also for very nice for resort riding and the shaped collar is great. You can do longer strides and the comfort while hiking got better as well. The rubber strap at the base of the boot helps to increase the durability. The sewing is now well protected against rocks as well as against the binding rubbing on the way up.

Here are our personal results from this boot. The durability seems to be increased.

  • Comfort: 7 (with Thermoliner 9)
  • Power transmission: 7
  • Heel support: 7
  • Boardfeel: 10
  • Weight: 9
  • Quality: 7

Product description


The Deeluxe XV, a splitboard boot with backwelt for semi-automatic crampons mounting, is light and comfortable. Deeluxe offers three different thermoliners:

  • Thermo Flex Premium Liner - that can be heat-formed to your feet with new microfiber lining and an extra powerstrap
  • Thermo Flex Liner - that can be heat-formed to your feet as well
  • Peformance Flex Liner - is not heat formed but comfortable as well

Features:

  • A rubber band maximizes durability and traction when walking through rocky terrain.
  • A base protects the lacing clips from going off when touching rocks.
  • Pre-shaped XLS collar extends the shell’s range of motion to -5° for additional comfort and longer strides while skinning.

 

The Deeluxe lacing system allows you to adjust two separate lacings to your needs. The Vibram sole gives you an amazing ride feeling and when boot packing a lot of support and grip in rocky terrain.
