Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I only gave these boots a 4 star rating because of one small problem. The lacing retainers slip slightly, and I have to tie a slip knot above them to keep them snug enough for me. Not a problem after securing the laces in this way, and a snap to undo... Boots have performed very well in conditions down to 2 degrees above zero. Boots are warm, comfortable, and coupled with good BC bindings offer awesome control of my skis. (Rossignol BC 70's)... I highly recommend them to anyone looking for good combo equipment..

BC 70

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After taking up xc skiing after 12 years of not getting out on skis, I decided to upgrade my equip. BC 70's were my choice after agonizing on my decision. First of all, I had been very unimpressed with (no wax) skis.. In the past due to their lack of glide. No longer a problem. These skis glide with the best of them, and waxing the tips and tails only makes them better. Lateral stability is awesome, and metal edges on untracked snow, or on track with groomed trails is once again awesome. Control is a given on all types of track conditions, from icy to new powder. My girlfriend started skiing this year and the control she has with this equip, has greatly accelerated her control and improvement. Every day other people, (after watching my turns) have come up to me and asked what type of skis I have. They are impressed with the control I have while they are struggling to ski on tough conditions. We have logged over 125 miles so far this year, and could NOT be happier with our choices of BC equipment. She and I are skiing together on trails from beginner to expert thanks to the performance of this ski, and BC boots, and bindings. I would recommend this equipment to anyone looking for a good, versatile, combo ski...
