Salomon S/MAX 130 Carbon
Category: Men's High Performance Alpine
The iconic French ski brand is slowly allowing some of its forward-thinkingEuropean race technology to trickle into North America, and this boot is an awesome start. The shell and liner are both heat-moldable to make fitting easy, but the stiff carbon insert in the lower shell snugly cradles the lower foot, virtually eliminating energy loss between the leg and the ski while making this boot lighter than most other race-performance options. If the S/MAX Carbon 130 is a bellwether, then we have more high-performance Salomon alpine products to look forward to in the coming years. [$975, BUY NOW]
