We returned to the Design House and injected a new level of performance into the Katana for 2019. A new highback redefines its flex profile—our Asym FlexChannel Highback, made from powerful glass-filled nylon, features a single diagonal flex slot. The result is heelside response that has support where you need it and has flexibility on the inside top corners for tweak and smooth flow. The combination of our supportive Ultralight Ankle Strap and PivotMount Max Technology team up to give you the ability to fine tune toeside support. Superlight and with an all-new medium flex profile, the Katana lays down technical response and advanced customization for everything from groovy freeriding, to high-speed powder slashing, to progressive park ripping.
