Pro Head entered two models from the same family in this category, and they put up similar results. The S11 is aimed at traditional all-mountain skiers; the unisex Mojo is for more youthful freeriders. Testers gave two thumbs up to the 11's cuff buckles, which are levered to ease closure. For an extra $25-$30, you can have the shop install Head's Full Custom System insert (see Head RS 110, Race), which expands its fit range. Entry is easy, and testers deemed the initial fit comfortable. The suspension is smooth and balanced. It lacks the power of other boots in the category, but that suits lighter skiers fine and enhances versatility. Two of our stronger male skiers, Blaylock and Schaffner, described it as "among the softer flexing boots in the category." Con Not well-suited for highest speeds and hardest snow. Top Scores Closure System 3.7, Entry/Exit 3.5, Adjustability 3.5
