Danner hit the reset button with the creation of the Tachyon, taking its typical boot design and completely overhauling it to remove extra weight — down to a mere 26 ounces — without sacrificing any of its legendary comfort or performance. The upper is completely synthetic for superior weight savings with the added benefit of an ultra-fast dry time. Speed lacing and a three-layer comfort system work together to create a snug, comfortable fit. Most boots in this weight category have a composite rubber outsole, but the Tachyon features a true rubber outsole for superior abrasion resistance and traction. New for 2014, the Tachyon received a few upgrades. The new Tachyon GTX LE boot features a polishable toe and GORE-TEX lining. MSRP $150.
