Default 2013 Celsius boots 60%

2013 Celsius up to 70% on The Clymb. I rode 2012's this year. I'd recommend them to friends.

I've always been curious about Celsius, but never could find much about them. I remember reading somewhere that the Opus is the poor person's SLX with a few drawbacks, but those drawbacks were never listed.

What is the fit like? What sort of foot? Would you suggest sizing up or down?

I rode the Cirrus with Speed Lace.

Fit was true. I'm a 10.5 on the US scale (27.3cm) and a 10.5 fit snug out of the box. I wouldn't recommend sizing down. They're average width in the heel and roomy in the toe box new. As they break in the toe box can be pulled tighter with the speed lace so it tightens up nicely.

Flex was a little stiff out of the box but breaks in nicely while remaining supportive.

The liner is extremely comfortable, it's thick and soft so it conforms well to the foot. Like thermo liners but without the heat molding.

The heel hold lock is the best I've ever come across. With the insertable j-bars it's god excellent heel hold.

The speed lace system is quick and effective. Pull and lock and it lasts the entire day.

The airbag has great shock absorption and the EVA insole is adequately damp. I ended up swapping it out because that's what I do with all of my boots but I would have ridden it otherwise.

They're super light. They're 6 oz lighter than my size 10 Vans Wiig's and I've held them up to my bro's DC Ceptors and they're noticeably lighter.

On my original pair one of the lace locks was defective. I contacted Celcius customer service and they were kind of dicks about replacing them. But in the end they did. But as far as the performance goes I'm extremely happy with them. And for this price it's a steal.

Damn! I`ve been thinking about getting either the Cirrus, or 32 lashed. This deal made it pretty easy to decide.
Enter check out: Does not ship out of the US.

Easy come, easy go... sort of :/

Yeah being in Canada the clymb is kinda lame, but I live an hour from the border so I ship to I depot right across the line. Got my 686 jacket for $80 that way.

Awesome boots. I ride the Cirrus model and by far the most comfortable boot I have used.

I have a pair of the Opus 9 boots that I rode twice . I loved the boot, but was not a big fan of the speedlace. They just wouldn’t stay tight. I went back to my old Burton boots for the rest of last season; however, I came across a pair of the CLS models at the beginning of this year for a good price and pulled the trigger. They broke in nicely and are very comfortable. I agree on the heel hold. Even laced up loosely, I have no problem. Extremo, what was the issue you were having? Were they staying tight? This reminds me to try and get the Opus models sold...

One of the lace locks on the outside of the boot didn't work. You know how theres a small bump that the lace snaps behind into the lock position? One of the lace lock's bumps wasn't big enough to hold it into place. Clearly it was just a defect because all of the other 7 locks worked perfectly. From what I understand they use the same lace lock system as Burton. I had read that Burton was suing Celsius over it and sent them a cease and desist order. But obviously that hasn't stopped them. Super good locking system.

And as a reference in outsole, the 10.5 Cirrus have a smaller outside profile than my size 10 Deeluxe Rough Diamonds. If I didn't just buy these I'd be buying another pair of Cirrus.

Thanks, I'll have to take a look and see if something like that was the issue with mine.

Maybe it's just on the mobile site but any site that I have to give me email and create an account before even looking at stuff is a no no. Hate sites that do that
