The 70 flex index allows you to ski comfortably on most piste terrain (varied, ski run, Skicross). The HP anatomical footbed is designed to provide a comfortable run in a variety of settings. The FlexWalkingSole and SoftWalk + Grip system allow you to walk naturally in these boots. This ski boot differs from the lower cost i-Type 8 boot in that it has a 70 flex index instead of 60, Heatfit (which offers a snug fit by conforming to your foot) and fleece lining. However, this boot lacks the higher cost i-Type 12's 80 flex index, SuperHeat3 Front Entry and ISO 5355 Vibram Pads, which offer more protection to the feet. The Head i-Type 10 ski boot comes in a black/red color.
