The 2015 XT gets even better. A stiffer upper cuff and better cuff-release mechanism provide a locked-in feel fore and aft and better stability for ripping off-piste. The lightweight liner, slightly stiffer and denser, mates better with its shell. Testers said the medium width was ideal, with no- slip grip on the foot, especially in the ankle and heel areas. Rafferty: "Surprisingly agile. Skis like an alpine boot."
