The Hawx line has been around for years but only seems to grow in testers’ esteem. It’s known for an initial fit that lazy bootfitters love, and any necessary tweaks are achieved through the fast and effective Memory Fit heat-molding process. It also sports the industry’s most effective lean-adjustment system: stand tall and relax, or crank it forward and hammer. The Prime 130 skis with a distinctive Hawx feel: energetic without ever feeling harsh. “Smooth but still responsive, with a fit that works for a lot of feet,” said Messer.
