Ski Boot Horn
Ski Boot Horn:
The Ski Boot Horn is the best solution for both stepping into your ZipFits and once your liners are laced up, stepping into your ski boot shells. We tested a number of solutions for stepping into our shells with our liners on — the Ski Boot Horn is the easiest and reduces wear and tear along the heel of your Zips.
Make your mornings easier. By using the Ski Boot Horn in conjunction with the Hot Gear Bag, booting up won’t feel like thumb wrestling a stiff piece of cold plastic. The Ski Boot Horn is roughly 10″ by 6″ and can be cut down to a preferable size if needed. The thermomoldable plastic will take shape of your ski boot so we recommend storing the Ski Boot Horn in your ski boots when not in use. A durable piece of paracord attaches to the pliable plastic with a reinforced grommet, so after you step into your boot, the Ski Boot Horn can be pulled out from the shell.
On multi-day backcountry missions, we love the Ski Boot Horn because it makes getting into cold ski boots easier and it doubles as an improvised splint or a seat for accelerated glissading! Having a small piece of semi-rigid plastic can come in handy for a number of different applications – small cutting board folks? Indeed.
The ZipFit way:
ZipFit was founded by Sven Coomer, a pivotal character in the transition from leather ski boots to the modern plastic ski boot shell. ZipFits are designed to restore the feel and function lost in the transition from handmade leather boots to factory produced plastic shells by offering a custom fit solution — liners that don’t pack out, keep feet in the proper position, and last for seasons to come. We source the highest quality materials and make our ski boot liners by hand in Montebelluna, Italy.
Sven helped pioneer foam injection liners but was frustrated with the “one-and-done” fitting process and the volatile chemicals used in foam injection. ZipFit, which stands for Zero Injection Pressure Fit, offers customers a ready, out of the bag solution that morphs to the anatomy and needs of the skier’s foot. Our liners have three ports where our proprietary cork composite (a sustainable solution with no volatile chemicals) can be added for increased heel hold, ankle comfort, or padding in the tongue.
