It’s one of those rare boots with few flaws for testers to fixate on and it’s one of the strongest and quickest boots out there. Period. It’s stiff—but appropriately so—and testers dug the snugness of the Double Power Booster strap. It’s narrow, but with wiggle room for toes. The liner feels firm, and you’ll have to be, too, if you choose this boot. It’s for bell-to-bell skiers. OK, maybe a few testers cried about the Spineflex buckles, but others love how well they wrap the shell. Notes: flex stance performance tuning allows for changes made to forward lean as well as three different flex index settings depending on how many anchors (1,2,3) are utilized in rear spine, dual cuff adjustment with elliptical cam style adjusters provide maximal stance modification; Spineflex buckles wrap curved boot shape for better closure.
