"Bob Athey and I compared notes and we both agree, the best boot for splitboarding is a soft AT boot, or a telemark boot without the duckbill. The boot is great for climbing in crampons or on rock, holds your heel down well, and has a soft enough cuff that you can bend your leg sideways for bowing your board. It would be easy to add a forward lean mechanism in the cuff like on the Maestrale, or Mercury, only with 3-4 settings, or more customization of two, and of course, a walk mode. I dare say it will take some time for the field to recognize that."
