Pro This unisex boot may be the most straightforward design Rossignol has ever offered. Except for the vivid green color, the B-Squad looks positively old-school. But it would be a mistake to think it's old-tech. The shell uses two different plastics to improve comfort. The rear spoiler and tongue are both adjustable to customize stance and fit. The buckles are levered for easy operation. The interior is smoothly contoured and well-proportioned. And the tall rear spoiler supports the leg nicely. It's definitely an active skier's boot: If you sit back and relax, it'll get away from you. But it steers accurately, with a positive connection to the edge. "It rolls over easily and allows you to develop high edge angles," said Schaffer. "It held like Superglue on the snow." Con Difficult to put on and take off, especially when it's cold. Top Scores Lateral Response 3.3, Rear Support 3.1, Forward Flex 3.1
