The new generation of Freeriders! Climbing agility with no skiing compromises. The Mercury is the little brother of the new Vulcan. It also offers top skiing performance, the ability to drive modern freeride skis at any speed, the possibility to customize forward stiffness, and optimal heel retention while skiing and when landing big drops. This is combined with the walk-ability, and the lightness and patented technologies that made the TLT5 so popular among the best skiers in the world. A new technology is used on the cuff design, with the back part built in a a fiberglass reinforced TPU, while the front part is Pebax. It offers a high level of support, performance, a smoother flex (and a lower price) than the carbon fiber version. Ultra-Lock System 2.0: The new articulated cuff buckle Ultra-Lock System 2.0, which, when compared to the previous version, reduces lateral snag, unhampering the transition from Ski to Walk mode and reverse. Driving Spoiler 2.0: The rear spoiler (patent pending) slides inside the cuff, allowing the widest and smoothest cuff rotation possible. Once the Ultra-Lock system is closed, it becomes locked with the cuff, building a super-stiff downhill structure. It also alleviates friction between the cuff and inner liner, which keeps the heel in place for better walk-ability and no blisters. The new metal spoiler insert allows the user to adjust forward lean by simply removing or reassembling two fastening Torx screws.
