Despite its smaller-than-average boot-sole length, the Hawx Ultra somehow manages to supply a little extra length, width, and height for the toes while maintaining category-standard narrowness elsewhere. Nice trick. It uses stiff and thin Grilamid in the cuff for a lighter weight and a snappy resilient, powerful feel. The Power shift mechanism effectivley tweaks forward lean stiffness, but most testers like it as is. Globis: “Glovelike, comfy fit with sensitive feel for the snow and an appealing look.”
