With ankle and heel pockets more deeply sculpted in both the shell and liner this season, the Pursuit has a better-distributed fit and more accurate feel on edge. Meanwhile, new upper shell and liner tongue constructions provide an improved, even flex feel that doesn't crumble under even the most serious pounding. Testers had to question the 110 flex rating, as the Pursuit held up to aggressive skiing as well as boots that were supposedly much stiffer. Bonus horsepower in a well-priced boot. "Very clean feel. Liner and shell gibed nicely." Notes: New Sensor3 shell and liner constructions create more anatomical space for the ankle and heel and produce a more comfortable and even-flexing feel on the shin. New notches in the shell overlap improve entry and exit and the hour-glass shaped bootboard allows the medial and lateral sides of the forefoot to engage the floor of the boot directly for immediate edge feel.
