Our test is always sprinkled with good deals and sleepers that surprise testers with unexpected performance. The Luna 80 was both: a shocking, stunner-sleeper of a good deal. A Soft Value entry, it scored fourth highest of all boots tested and you’ll find it in most ski shops selling for less than $300. This is the little three-piece that could. Our testers couldn’t believe the agility and straight-up power that this 80-flex exhibited in all sorts of conditions and turns. They loved that it made slow speed skids, medium cruise-carves and flat-out railed screamers. An 80 flex! Testers said it slid on easy, buckled up cleanly, fit like a well-contoured wide boot (bigger than its 101mm tag would suggest) and came off like butter when it was all over. Luna means moon. That’s fitting as our test team was over it for this one.
