The testers can be tough, and a unanimously positive response to a new boot is rare. But that’s what the Elite 130 received. Testers called it light and lively and said it will put a stiff ski on a rail and guide it with assuredness through all phases of any turn. It impressed testers with a combination of neutral power (strong but not over-edged), at-the-ready maneuverability, and a snappy flex feel that outclassed the field. The liner’s custom-molding system was tested, but fit scores didn’t change drastically; the unmolded Optisensor liner is a gem and received very high marks right out of the box. The biggest change post-molding was at the ankle pockets. Testers placed the fit squarely in the middle of the narrow-boot class, with a touch more toe-box room than most. Many said the out-of-box fit was as good as that of boots that have undergone hours of custom fit work.
