Balancing the needs of skate and classic boots is no easy task, but through careful material and feature selection we’ve created the Race Speed Universal – a boot that’s comfortable both while skating as well as in the track. A flexible forefoot to prevent pain during classic striding, an ankle cuff to provide lateral support during skating, and the Madshus performance outsole all add up to make the Race Speed Universal an excellent choice regardless of your skiing technique. The Race Speed Universal is also a good option for skiers who prefer more control than a typical classic boot provides: the ankle cuff will boost your confidence on steep and twisty descents.
Lace eyelet loops anchor far below the boot’s visible lacing, securely wrapping the whole foot, laterally and medially, with balanced tension, providing improved heel hold and a better overall fit.
In keeping with our commitment to protecting our climate, Madshus RED, Champion, Race Performance, and selected Backcountry and Junior boots are designed with a totally PVC-Free construction.
Madshus boots feature waterproof and breathable softshell lace covers, ensuring warm, dry and comfortable feet.
