Atomic continues to build flex into the forefoot of the boot with interesting results. The Hawx line, of which the 120 is flagship, features shell cutaways designed to allow the foot to flex naturally and the ski to flex roundly. The feel is highly tactile; the skier is one with the ski’s sidecut. Heel hold is excellent, and the toe box is roomy. “Skis extremely well,” said Garrett.

Midfoot flexibility is the hallmark of the Hawx. Relief cuts in the shell walls allow it—and the skier’s foot—to flex in a way that feels natural and improves balance. The fit is generous, yet sufficiently snug in the heel, and the stance is upright, ideal for centered skiing over modern sidecuts. Overall, it’s comfortable and connected to the snow and won’t fatigue your foot.
