Flexing and pressing is this Monarch's reputation. With a flex Rating of 4, progression and flexing is made easy, whether its connecting those first turns, or press'n in the park. The TLS 5 Twin Lacing System pulls the liner close in hugging and supporting ankles all in two pulls. This Monarch boot not only helps with progression but keeps those feet warm and comfy in Cloud 3 Liners. For flex'n and press'n into new mountain zones this Monarch covers a lot of terrain.
