Boreal Nelion Mountaineering Boot



no ratings


Nelion is a traditional mountain boot reinvented for the 21st century to take advantage of the latest advances in advanced modern synthetic materials. The result is an alpine mountaineering boot which has a winning combination of extremely low weight, high comfort and superb durability.

Nelion is ideally suited to summer alpine or lower altitude winter mountaineering in less severe temperatures. The upper is made from synthetic microfiber with an injected PVC overlay for extra lateral support and protection, and features our unique Dry-Line® lining which is fully waterproof and has an unrivalled ability to transport moisture vapour away from the foot. Nelion is slightly more flexible than B3 category boots, making it more comfortable for walking and trekking over extended distances. 
The underfoot comfort of the Nelion is further enhanced by a midsole with a soft cushioned EVA top surface for improved underfoot cushioning and thermal insulation.

The high quality sole unit platform features a Vibram® New Mulaz rubber outsole with extra cushioning under the heel area and built-in system for improved torsional control.
Nelion is compatible with semi-automatic crampons and is suitable for less technical winter climbing and glacial travel as well as being great for scrambling, mountain walking and general summer alpinism.
