Advanced and expert women seeking a close fit and almost-race throttle response�without sacrificing all creature comforts�will find this a great match. Overall it's a tight-fitting package�the ankle, in particular, is gripped to rip, Patron Pro�style�and the Spitfire's edge-power and quickness scores were very high. Yet testers found the toe box and midfoot to be relatively roomy. The stance is a mite forward of neutral, but a removable spoiler straightens it up and opens up the calf fit. "Locked me in a nice forward position, with room in the toe box." Notes: Newly modified Dobermann last offers more room over the instep and midfoot by dropping the elevation of the EDT bootboard, which is also revised to maximize edge power transmission by way of its carbon fiber core but without previous weight or arch contour. Lower cuff height here.

It’s not a women’s-specific boot, but the 100 flex and narrow shape will make it a great choice for girls who rip. Other than the softer flex and lower cuff, it’s the same as the Spitfire 120 (see Men’s Speed)—a willing all-mountain explorer with exceptional quickness. The difference: Female testers liked their Spitfire even more than the men did theirs. It’s aggressive and edgy.
