Test Results

The Fitwell Backcountry Boot is a Splitboard Boot made in Italy. The boot shavn't changed compared to the last seasons model. Even after around 45 days of tourng the boot seems quite new. Top!
Extremely stiff, this boot clearly brings more power to the board, resulting in better edgehold. The classic lacing has a solid feature which pinches the laces at the instep and prevents loosening reliably. The quality is top and the rubber coating around the shoe protects against abrasion of the seams by the binding. The Fitwell BC is suitable for easy attachment of semiautomatic crampons, too. The heel support is good, could possibly be further increased by adding a special fixation, however.

The Fitwell Backcountry Boot gives great grip with and without crampons and on the way up with the splitboard as well

The Fitwell Backcountry Boot is the one for mountaineering, splitboarding, snowboard and freeride.
The Backcountry boot is designed to meet the needs of snowboarders who venture far from the beaten track, whether they are faced with a challenging north face or on that perfect day with fresh snow.
This boot combines the features of modern mountaineering boots with the comfort and support of snowboard boots.

Fitwell Backcountry Boot

The stiff boot supports the uphill-performance of every splitboard, because there is less power transfered into the boot and more power straight to the board.
