The Elite 130 is ready, willing, and able to tackle all terrain and snow challenges with a lightweight but powerful feel on edge. The upright cuff quickly engages the ski tip with just the slightest of moves to the boot front. Testers felt the 130 flex index was right on target, with a firm but springy feel from turn to turn. It fits tight, as a 98-mm last should, but without pressure points or hot spots. Kipp: “Powerful to the edge, with plenty of support all around. Responds quickly to input. Fun to ski.”
