Asymmetric Cuff Cut

HEAD has invented the Cuff Cut and now made it asymmetric to better fit to the anatomy of a riders foot - enabling the boot to flex more natural, resulting in minimal deformation of the shell.


Asymmetric Toe Box

A foot is thinner on the lateral toe side than on the medial side. This is why our liners come with an asymmetric toe shape – for the perfect anatomic fit.
