I was saddened to hear that K2 will be absorbing FT. Naturally, I am looking to get some new boots before the ship sails.
I'm looking for a boot that will allow my wide ass foot to ski resort a majority of the time but allow a few backcountry missions per season. I've got a pair of bentchetler 120's ill be mounting w Shifts, pending my boot/bsl decision.
Open to purchasing the pro wrap liner for additional resort performance? The 10 flex tounge was satisfactory in my FC 10's.
My QUESTION is, will the FT Ascendant SC's be a boot that skis like a resort boot? I see that they are marketed as a touring boot that "doesn't sacrifice performance on the downhill", has anyone ridden these that can chime in on their resort-ability?
Also, I've had boots with a "walk" function in the past which just ended up being bs. How is the walk function on these boots?
Quick stats: 200 lb 6' riding the 2017 First Chair 10's (this boot is too narrow and it took many visits to the bootfitter to make them work). Riding Mammoth with a few trips elsewhere planned this season (Whistler & UT & ??). Riding K2 poachers w Domains, K2 Pon2oons for the +2' days, and the Chetlers with shifts soon, as mentioned above.
