Rigby, ID (June 12, 2006)-Whether you live to bust up fresh powder all day long, pound out a 300 mile day or just ride casually through winter’s beauty, you’ll do it with warm and dry feet in Klim’s new Adrenaline Boot. The Adrenaline Boot is the only boot on the market with a GORE-TEX membrane and W.L. Gore and Associates’ famous “Guaranteed to Keep You Dry” promise.
“Our research shows that about 90 percent of competitive boots are neither waterproof nor breathable,” explained Klim President Justin Summers. “But the real soaker for snowmobilers is perspiration and even those boots that are waterproof won’t let that escape.” The Adrenaline Boot’s GORE-TEX membrane and multi-layer perforated construction meets Gore’s stringent standards for breathability. That means when sledders get moving and their feet start to sweat-more than a pint of sweat a day-the Adrenaline Boot will draw that moisture out to the world, keeping socks as warm and dry as when the ride started!
“We built the Adrenaline Boot for serious snowmobilers because we designed them for ourselves,” said Summers. Consumers will find a tough, abrasion-resistant composite outsole with a Kicker Toe to protect the boots from wear caused by traction strips and tunnel bolts. “Our new polyurethane midsole resists packing out better than competitive EVA midsoles,” he added. “We put our Adrenaline Boots on some of the most aggressive, gear-abusing riders we know for thousands of miles to prove out their durability. These boots are made to thrive in the harsh usage serious snowmobilers put their gear through.”
The new Adrenaline Boot features 600 grams of 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation. This offers excellent warmth protection without adding bulk. “The Thinsulate material we use in the Adrenaline Boot is one of the thinnest and toughest insulations on the market. It takes a beating and retains its loft without retaining moisture,” said Summers.
Riders will appreciate Klim’s attention to ankle support and flexibility. “One of our goals for the Adrenaline Boot was to design it so that people can actually walk in them,” said Summers. “We started with a molded composite skeleton for lateral stability and then worked on the right cutout shape to allow good forward flexibility at the ankle. Owners will be very happy with the walkability of the Adrenaline Boot.”
Klim brought the first snowmobile-specific GORE-TEX jackets and pants to the market and has now brought the first Gore-Tex boot to snowmobiling. “We have a very strong working partnership with the team at Gore,” noted Summers. “That relationship has allowed us to stay a step ahead of our competition and offer snowmobilers the best, most technically advanced riding garments in the world.”
