Even though one tester said the boot's name sounded like a cigarette her granny would smoke, we'll bet Gran wouldn't ski this boot. Unless she's a charger. Testers steered it through bump and glade and loved the grounded, damp feel of the boot. They were similarly delighted to find a walk/tour mechanism on a boot that really skied well. "Great boot for a strong skier who isn't afraid to flex the boot to work the front of the ski," said Megen Johnson. Notes: Climbmatic cuff-release feature provides simple buckle-activated swap to hike/walk mode, shell shape incorporates more room for toebox, side of 5th met head, navicular and instep, Control Fit liner utilizes anatomically shaped interior padding and cutaway instep design over top of foot, Natural Stance combines lower ramp angle with more upright cuff angle for a relaxed and tall position, Easy Entry Concept means notches in the lower shell make entry and exit easier.
