In the new touring ski boot from Atomic, iglidur® plain bearings of the iglidur® J type in a white GLW collar bushing ensure the necessary mobility. In addition to the weight savings important for ski touring enthusiasts, the typical advantages of iglidur® are: no wear, no abrasion, no lubrication, no maintenance.
ASKIMO, the Austrian Ski Mountaineering Organisation for Competitions wrote: "The mobility (without stiffening flap) is simply a dream, hardly any friction is noticeable, the radius of action (according to ATOMIC 74°) is very high. A secret behind this are the maintenance-free and lubrication-free igus® bearings from racing bikes used in the main joints at the ankles. These virtually clearance-free bearings have a positive side effect: the black carbon mass made of knocked out joints - known from many carbon shoes - should be a thing of the past."
