The Impact 10 rewards skiers with a balanced stance and a light touch. Settle into the sweet spot of its sleek leather cockpit and easily lay down trenches or crud-dozing arcs. The tall shaft and embedded support chassis provide solid support. The Impact incorporates a new fit for Salomon, one that’s decidedly more voluminous than its racier Falcon cousins. The toe box is roomy but never sloppy. “Bravo,” raved Denis. “It locks on edge and will power any type of ski.”

Best For

Not For

120/110 The amazing Impact promises high-performance for any foot width. As with the X3 RC race boot (see Speed), it has a panel of heat-moldable plastic along the outside of the forefoot. A shop can quickly make it significantly roomier. On snow, it’s quick and precise, light yet strong—a natural performer in tight spots and bumps, yet solid and stable on corduroy.
