Pro More freeskier than racer, the 110 earned high marks for Versatility and Entry/Exit. Some testers wondered if it wouldn't fit better in the AME category. Head incorporates clever custom-fit options. Take the power strap: A D-ring cinch-cleat and a stretch panel offer unparalleled snugness. You'll think a boa is wrapping the cuff to your shin. And the Full Custom Frame-a cradlelike insert that reduces forefoot volume by 3 mm and secures the midfoot and heel-tailors the fit for different foot shapes. Heavier, more aggressive testers worried it was too forgiving for true race performance, but even they enjoyed the RS's ability to go anywhere without, as one put it, "harshing my mellow." In Rich's words: "You don't have to overpower the boot to get it to work." Con Can be overpowered by larger or more forceful skiers. Top Scores Entry/Exit 3.5, Adjustability 3.5, Closure System 3.1
