Returning like a hard-training middleweight, the X Pro 130 is lighter and stronger than before thanks to polyamide plastic in the lower shell. It wowed testers (as always) with its perfectly even, firm, medium-width fit profile and bankable turn-to-turn dependability. Most testers put it on, skied it, and forgot that it wasn't their own boot-it's that user-friendly and comfortable. And an upright stance makes it an off-piste dream. Blaylock: "Snug in all the right places, great in all turns and conditions. An all-day-strong kind of boot."
