Beware the roomy 102-mm last-width designation. Testers said the SX will also work for well for average to narrow feet, especially those that get cold easily or tend to go numb in tighter boots. There's nothing wrong with a relaxed fit so long as the key fit zones-instep, ankle and heel-are sufficiently snug to enable control of the ski. And that's where the SX 120 shines. Testers with all different kinds of foot shapes said it skied well, partly due to its comfy grasp of the rear foot but mostly because its stance angles are spot on, even with a skinny foot in the captain's chair. Updated cosmetics give it a fresh look, but it's still fairly sedate looking-good for dads, young grandpas and those who don't want the bling but still rip their turns. Testers unanimously vouched for its on-snow game. One tester cage-matched the SX on one foot and the Lange RS 140 on the other and said that arc for arc the SX 120 matched the RS power game (albeit in soft snow).
