Pro The Falcon 10/Scarlet combo perfectly ratchets down the power and precision of the Falcon Race while enhancing comfort. It has thoughtful external features, but the real technology is inside. The new Energyzer frame-embedded in the spine and anchored below the heel-provides instant energy transmission, and the liner uses three layers of tapered, heat-moldable foam for accurate wrap. Testers couldn’t recall a better out-of-the-box fit in a performance boot. “Perfectly mapped,” said Hogen. “I actually went looking for crud and bumps and zippered them like Jonny Moseley (OK-a very old Moseley).” Sheinberg added: “Best fit, best turn, great energy. You feel every bump and ripple underfoot, but it never feels harsh.” Con Leather collar on the liner cuff sometimes pinches calf. Top Scores Steering Power 4.1, Lateral Response 4.0, Rear Support 4.0
