The X Max is a frontside powerhouse that matches strong fit with an agile, active flex and lightweight feel underfoot to create a nice blend of edge grip and quickness that technical skiers will appreciate. Testers loved the muscular way it moves to the edge. It’s strong laterally, and the tallish cuff provides tons of leverage. Jackson: “Stellar athletic stance and comfort. Awesome on snow. So solid.”
