Here's one of the biggest and best surprises of the test, a lightweight, compact boot that meets or beats the current fit and performance standard bearers. The new Hawx Ultra provides a shocking amount of extra room in the toe box despite a sole length that's five mm shorter than average. It skis strong, snappy, and agile. Gabriel: "Race-boot power and no slop. I'm a better skier in this boot."
