The Greek counterpart to Minerva, goddess of Wisdom, is Athena. Garmont’s Athena is their most versatile women’s-specific PowerWrap 75mm telemark boot. Like the Men’s Kenai, its easier flex and mid-height cuff were developed for women who tour as much as they frequent the resorts. Its lower cuff is designed for a woman’s lower leg shape. With its High Overlap and anatomical shape, it skis like the biggest boots, with more flexibility for deeper teles and touring. Its cuff locks securely for turns and can be unlocked to hinge freely. Four separate injections fine-tune the Athena’s superb forward flex and decisive lateral stiffness. The PowerWrap’s anatomical shell has a custom-bootfitter fit right out of the box, with “pre-punched areas for skier’s feet.
