CAST boot conversion allows you to keep rocking the alpine boots you know and love, while adding tech compatibility for super efficient touring. We even throw on custom rubber tread lifters for better grip and protection. This means you won't have to replace your boots just cause the soles start wearing thin. ISO 5355 norm for alpine bindings is maintained so they will test and function properly in your alpine bindings.
Boot Conversions have a 3 day turn around time at our shop plus shipping. Make sure you get them in before the snow starts flying so you won't be stuck without them.
The boot conversion consists of a set of stainless steel tech inserts that are bolted and epoxied to the boot soles. The inserts are then covered by replaceable lifters. Our boot conversion process is designed around standard race boot canting, techniques. As such works best on solid soled alpine boots, however CAST laboratories has developed procedures that allow for the conversion of boots that already have replaceable soles as well.
If you are unsure whether your specific boot will work or whether we have the correct soles in stock send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Our conversion will work with the new Salomon/Atomic Shift MNC. We strongly recommend not using our boot conversion with the Marker Kingpin. Our inserts are not designed to be skied downhill, just used for the uphill part.
