For decades, winter boots were solely known as "Ski-Doo boots," after they first appeared in the Bombardier catalog in 1966. Snowmobilers and non-snowmobilers alike bought Ski-Doo snowmobile boots because of their unsurpassed waterproofness and warmth.
This fall, BRP is launching an entirely new line of Ski-Doo snowmobiling boots, keeping in mind what made the original "Ski-Doo boots" great. Each of the five models is 100 percent new, designed by BRP not just to set the standard for waterproofness, breathability and warmth, but for being perfectly suited to snowmobiling.
The new line includes:
- Absolute 0 boots
- Helium boots
- Holeshot boots
- Trail boots
- Kids & Teen Holeshot boots
For more active, energy-intensive riding, Ski-Doo suggests its Helium boot. It features a Sympatex membrane that is totally windproof, waterproof and 120 percent more breathable than the best-known membrane. Thinsulate insulation earns the Helium boots a comfort rating to minus 75 degrees F. BRP designed the boot to flex for mountain and racing-type riders and incorporated features they need like a tough rubber toe cap, molded rubber ankle protection and a twin-lock EZ-lace system.
There are two models available: a grey version with black and light grey accents; and a charcoal grey version with bold yellow highlights and Ski-Doo logos. Both retail for US$179.99/Can$214.99.
The entire Ski-Doo 2011 boot collection can be purchased at authorized Ski-Doo dealers
as well as online at store.ski-doo.com.
