Even though modern ski boots have become high-tech products with many fascinating functional solutions, many people are unhappy about these bulky and stiff hardshells on their feet when it comes to general comfort – especially when walking or standing once the skis are taken off. The DAHU boot is a hybrid between a plastic ski boot and a soft winter boot. The soft boot can be used for all kinds of winter activities, and once it is inserted into the exoskeleton, the DAHU becomes a ski boot meeting all requirements of the ski industry, delivering full performance on the slope. All parts and functions as well as the interface connection are very well designed and crafter – and easy to operate. The jury agreed that DAHU deserves to be the Overall Winner with this very sophisticated and fully developed product that has the potential to revolutionize the ski boot market.
