As the most freestyle focussed boot in the Salomon range, the Launch delivers a progressive and playful ride making it the perfect choice for any rider who wants to turn the mountain into a playground. However, just calling it a freestyle boot would do it a massive disservice, because the Launch is a whole lot more than that. Thanks to its combination of traditional lace upper and more importantly its advanced Str8Jkt heel retention system, it delivers a level of response and control that's almost unheard of with this type of boot. What this means is that not only is the Launch great in the park, it's also perfect for those all-terrain riders who want a more playful boot but who don't want to sacrifice any control or response.
Traditional lace closure with double wrap independent eyelets on the upper allow the ultimate in custom closure. Lock the lower half down and free the upper for park mobility or lock the whole boot down for freeride control.
Distributes lace tension equally across the whole foot reducing fatigue and increasing comfort and fit.
Gold flex liners feature heat mouldable custom fit foam and Ortholite C2 insoles for the ultimate insecure, lasting comfort. Full flex pads around the calf and additional flex plan under the arch give optimal hold and a more dynamic flex.
STR8JKT ANKLE HARNESS
Lock your feet down with supreme comfort. Str8jkt features an additional in heel harness for a no heel left ride and optimal comfort. Salomon have upgrade the strap design and made it all more ergonomic so that it's easier to untighten and more comfortable to use.
HEEL GRIP Cat Tongue like material at the heel sides ensure your socks are perfectly gripped into the boots for increased heel hold.
FLIGHT OUTSOLE One of the lightest outsoles in the Salomon range. The new EVA-rubber compound Flight outsole is specifically engineered for an extremely lightweight, cushiony and low profile freestyle feel.
