I see Telemark Pyrennes are listing three new boots from Garmont :

Astral - A womens boot looks like a version of the Shaman
Megastar - a new version of the womens Megaride, dynafit compatible
Shaman - 4.9kg, changeable soles, flex index 130 based on their new G1 racing boot apparently.

The shaman and Astral have “Cizeta Free-Ride” inner which is new I think. Not sure what it is.

I see “Shaman” now wins the prize for the most over-used product name, Movement replaced the Chaman ski with the Shaman and Icelantic have a Shaman ski as well. Maybe I’ll rename our cat Shaman as well if it’s next seasons “black” grin

The Shaman is a beefy boot, similar to the Scarpa Hurricane


which there is some info on here:

Although weight is going to be an issue for hardcore tourers I think this is the kind of boot I would have liked when I was doing a lot of piste/off piste and running around a ski resort. The new liners look interesting too.

The Astral looks very, very interesting grin

ise I like the look of the flex ribs underneath, supposedly a Shock Dampener. Maybe it will help with the chattering feedback from the ski when using the Fritschi Diamir Freeride Plus?
