Ted Ligety and Bode Miller never leave the start house without their Boosters race tight. The Booster Strap is the devise that has revolutionized carving abilities at all levels of skiing.

A full ¾ + US Ski Team athletes, as well as many foreign athletes too, use Boosters - men and women. Not bad for a non-revenue producing sponsored piece of  optional equipment. Check out the boottops of your favorite athlete for the flapping tail of the Booster Strap.

Simply put: Better fit = Better carving = Better turns = Better times.

The Booster Strap creates the better fit by using a very strong elastic member and a system to control the tension in the elastic. When attached to the highback and placed against the tongue of the inner boot and cinched to the desired level it creates a perfect bond between the leg and the boot. This is as important to a skier as tight laces are to a basketball player.

For a skier this means no delay in ski response at the start of the turn. The ski starts turning simultaneously with the skiers action to start the turn resulting a more positive initation for a more coordinated turn and a better carve.  

“The most critical part of making great turns is consistent ankle flexion throughout the turn. The Booster Strap is the only product that allows gentle, consistent pressure on the front of your boot that dramatically increases ankle flexion and your performance. I don't ski without it." - Warner Nickerson 31, is an independent American ski racer from Guilford, NH with 41 FIS victories and three US national podiums and two NCAA All American titles. Nickerson was also a member of the 2011 US world championship team.

 

Booster Straps are available at performance ski shops. For a limited time introductory pricing at www.skimetrix.com/nastar
