Built for the exercise skater, entry level skater, or high school racer, the Alpina T40 is the perfect mix of performance, comfort, and economy in a skate skiing boot. The T40 is billed at a Skate Touring boot and as such provides more warmth and comfort than most performance or race level boots while still providing the performance and ski control. The T40 uses the Rottefella NNN T3 Touring sole for increased comfort, off-ski traction and insulation from the cold snow and skis. It uses the same plastic reinforced heel-counter and tall hinged ankle cuff as Alpina’s ASK boot for superior ski control and fit. The plastic reinforced heel counter provides lateral support while the tall cuff offers the lateral support and ski control needed for skating. Thinsulate brand insulation adds warmth for all day skiing comfort. With the same an anatomical foot bed, internal lace system, and zippered cover as the Alpina ASK model, the economical T40 keeps the snow out and your foot warm and secured for performance skating.
