Full Tilt en­ters the hy­brid game with the As­cen­dant, a three-buckle, three-piece shell now avail­able in a walk mode and tech fit­tings. It’s com­pa­ra­ble to the Dalbello Lupo, though doesn’t have the same down­hill power. The in­com­pa­ra­ble stock In­tu­ition liner and Gril­amid shell can be heat-molded for a pre­cise fit, and the tongue is re­mov­able for more ef­fi­cient tour­ing. The user­friendly walk mode pro­vides 40 de­grees of mo­tion; 60 de­grees with­out the tongue. Ski­a­bil­ity is com­pro­mised, how­ever, as there ap­pears to be some give due to the walk mech­a­nism. But it re­mains a great op­tion for Full Tilt fans who want one boot to do ev­ery­thing, al­beit in a less ag­gres­sive pack­age.
