Free to ride, free to feast.
Break the boundary-chains in the Lange XT 110 Ski Boot, with walk mode, grippy sole, a width made for comfort, and muscly power. The 110 flex is freeride-caliber stiff yet forgiving enough for all-day endurance, which is essential, since there's no such thing as lunch when there are untracked goods to gobble.
- Polyurethane shell and polyolefin HP cuff for light weight and high-octane performance
- 110 flex is plenty stiff but forgiving for a pain-free ride; mono-injection provides a smooth, consistent flex, regardless of temperatures
- 100mm width prevents foot-crunch
- Lightweight, laced, true-lasted Control Fit liner provides precise, energy-efficient, ultra-comfy fit; saddle-stitched seams eliminate hot spots
- Power Wedge tongue wraps the leg for a sensitive and powerful response
- One-piece toe box, instep pocket, and anatomical padding provide optimal comfort and security
- Natural stance complements the more upright modern ski design, with a 4-degree ramp angle and 12-degree (14-degree with spoiler) forward lean
- Canting adjustment of plus or minus 1.5 degrees for fine tunes
- Extruded aluminum buckles are low-profile, for speed and security
- 40mm power strap gives you added power-transfer and comfortable security
- Hike-ski mode is an easy-access pull-tab that allows you to hoof it to the goods in comfort
- Power V-Lock allows excellent range of motion on the climb and engages with the lower shell to support your ripping descent
- Max Grip sole and Ultra Grip arch increase traction on exposed and rocky hikes for safe, secure footing

HUGE design flaw

So far this season, I have had 10 good hard ski days on this boot both in Canada and Switzerland - with another 20+ days planned. It has been down to -27degC, boot-packed, instructed in and walked a fair distance. I love the way this boot feels and rides. I have had them professionally fitted/ alignment tweaked etc etc..
HOWEVER...there is one HUGE problem with this boot. It lets in snow through the area of the plastic overlap underneath the forefoot buckles. After only 2 - 2 1/2hrs of skiing, even in the mildest of temps (-1degC) my feet are like blocks of ice. The liners are seriously damp, even on the underside so much so that the underneath of my cork footbeds got damp. At -27DegC, the outside of the liner was frozen solid, which resulted in minor frostbite.. I initially thought that it was due to my feet sweating, but i have ruled that one out with the use of foot antiperspirant - bone dry feet + socks and still wet liners. Removing the liner reveals snow inside the shell. I have tried boot gloves, but snow still gets forced underneath and eventually inside the boot . The problem appears to be with the overlap design?approx 1mm at the toe, extending to a whopping 5mm where the cuff joins the lower shell. My kids boots have a better snow protection design. In all other aspects, these boots rock, but i would NOT recommend this boot to anyone. It shows that this is their 1st attempt at a free-ride/ alpine touring boot. I am trading these in for the new Salomon QuestMax 120. Duct Tape and silicone sealant are not the answer for an $650 pair of boots?
PLEASE NOTE - i did not purchase these boots from Backcountry. I feel compelled to pass on my findings..

These boots look cool and ski well. They give me power and let me ski how I like. They are good for aggressive skiers who are on the lighter side. The two downsides are that I really don't notice the hike mode and the other is that I occasionally get poked by something near my ankle, but it goes away after I re-buckle them.
