This season, the brand that keeps the soul of three-piece ski boots alive swapped its single-number flex rating for standard flex indicators. Full Tilt also released a true 130-flex tongue—built using a proprietary combination of TPU and Grilamid—in the First Chair 130. In combination with a new Intuition liner, GripWalk soles, and that incomparable feel that only Full Tilt boots provide, the First Chair 130 gives cause for anyone who thinks FT only builds “soft” boots to reconsider.
