Testers unanimously awarded the Raptor 110 RS W a top spot in a very competitive category. It is the most race-like of our test crop, with its solid sole construction, rigid internal bootboard and thin, dense liner construction. It fit shorter and narrower than most other narrow women's boots and with a slightly closer instep fit. Our testers liked that too. They also concurred that they had to work to get in and out of the boot but they were okay with that, too. It skis with uncanny quickness so testers said they were more than willing to put up with a little entry effort and perhaps a trip or two to the bootfitter if they were to make it their daily ride. They loved that the Raptor rewarded good skiing and an aggressive attack. It's a girl-power dominator that performs at such a high level that it earns it a pass on any minor demerits.
