Testers said the Falcon made their skis feel sharper—a sure sign of accurate energy transfer. Salomon loads the Falcon with plenty of innovation but manages to keep the design clean. The lateral (little-toe) side of the boot is softened, making the inside ski edge more forgiving. A high-quality leather liner hugs your foot securely, and the 3D Instep Buckle customizes closure over your instep. “It feels like your feet are right on the snow, and it accelerates out of turns,” said Sheinberg.

Best For

A surprisingly wide variety of foot shapes.

Not For

Ambling into turns. It burns nitro.
