This year's Rossi race boot features subtle improvements. It still shares the fundamentals that make its sister brand, Lange, so successful. The 2005, which we skied in a medium flex (different components can be used to either stiffen or soften it), is as precise as they come, defined by the quickness of its tight heel-hold. Its redesigned sole is no longer a solid block, but arched under the foot in a way that softens it, introducing an almost imperceptible give that allows it to work better with the flex of the ski and plate to which it's attached. The result: smooth, round arcs and improved edge-hold. Testers say: "You'll feel at home and centered from the moment you click in."
