The Garmont Masterlite has been honored with a 2011 Red Dot Design Award for product design. One of the lightest and most innovative ski mountaineering boots in the world, breathtakingly light and nimble during the climb, yet powerful and precise on the downhill, the Masterlite utilizes an innovative spiderweb-like Pebax Webframe shell, unique "rocker" footprint, high overlap shell design, and custom buckles and hardware. The spectacular result is a one-of-a-kind alpine touring boot that shaves all unnecessary weight while maintaining superior alpine performance.
"We are very proud of this international accolade which is testimony to our passion for clean, innovative product design and recognition of our commitment to offering our customers best-in-class products designed to enhance outdoor performance," said Garmont Product Manager Paul Parker.
The Masterlite debuted in the North American market in fall 2010, responding to a growing market of avid backcountry skiers seeking maximum weight savings without sacrificing performance. The 2010-2011 Masterlite weighs in at only 1090g per boot, yet still provides the exceptional control and performance needs of demanding skiers.
