    Super advanced cross-country skiing boots ELITE 2.0 for an easy way of achieving top results

    From season to season we upgrade our boot collection for cross-country skiing with useful solutions, technologies and materials. Each boot is fitted with the most up-to-date functions available on the market because this is the only way we can turn it into a perfect accessory on your path to victory. A major part of the secret behind the boots made for winners and those who are on the right way to becoming ones is their innovative and functional design.  These are top-notch boots designed by crafty hands on the basis of understanding all the laws and factors involved in winter sports. 

    Elite 2.0 boots allow precision in performing cross-country skiing technique, giving top class responsiveness and a maximum transmission of force from the boot to the ski. They make it possible to efficiently control correct stature and body balance during skiing as well as speed control at any occasion.

    All Elite 2.0 boot components are made of selected and advanced materials with the purpose of a maximum reduction of total weight. Construction and design are directed at managing all functional requirements. Optimum sole flexibility is ensured with maximum longitudinal rigidity and lateral stability of the boot. The boots provide superior traction and a high-level comfort. Materials are non-water absorbent. They adapt excellently to different types and shapes of feet. They are distinguished by extraordinary lightness while at the same time ensuring excellent functionality.

    The new Elite 2.0 series boots are intended for winners and recreational sportspersons. Our sponsored competitors reach for the top ranks on the world championship competitions; they stood on the podium more than 90 times.

    The boots that are available in Alpina stores are the same as those worn by medal winners Jakov Fak, the Swedish competitors Charlotee Kalla and Markus Hellner, the Czech competitor Gabriela Soukalova and many others. 

    If you prefer the skate skiing technique, we recommend the ESK 2.0 model; and to all those cherishing the “classic” technique the ECL 2.0 model. Both models are also available in children’s version intended for able recreational skiers and competitors in the children’s categories. The children’s versions of the model incorporate the Thinsulate material offering excellent thermal insulation properties.

    We took care of everything, now you just have to come to the snowy plains.
