Description

A warm, supportive Nordic boot made extra tough and comfortable for exploring the snow beyond the resort trails.

Nordic skiing in the backcountry requires a different kind of boot, one with far more support, durability and warmth. Good news, because the Rossignol BC X6 Touring Boot is just the tool for the job. Features like NNN BC binding compatibility and a quick-cinch ankle gaiter protect your foot from the elements, while small luxuries like the heat moldable liner makes leaving the resort even more pleasant. This is a boot for breaking trail beyond the groomers and exploring the woods, hills, and valleys.
  • Rigid external frame provides support specifically to the ankle and keeps the hook-and-loop power strap in place
  • Cordura fabric upper has a high level of durability so this boot will last for many seasons to come
  • Thinsulate insulation liner keeps your foot warm by retaining the heat that you naturally generate
  • Liner is heat moldable for ultimate comfort and the most personalized fit
  • Dual density external shell uses rigid plastic to transfer your foot movements and propulsive energy directly to the sole of the boot (and thus the ski)
  • Hook-and-loop power strap secures the fit at the ankle and provides adjustable support
  • Lock Down System wraps around the foot inside the boot to secure the heel and instep to eliminate any sloppiness or excess movement
  • NNN BC binding compatibility so you can step right into your BC bindings and lock in place securely
  • External gaiter loops and a cinch-closure cuff helps you keep snow out of your boots when you're breaking new trail in fresh snow

Is the rossingal BC 6 a over kill for backcountry that is mainly flat and lakes? That boot vs Fisher 5BC or Alpina Bc 1550? I know the latter two are lighter?

Footloose.

I wanted to like them. I thought they looked great. However, it's not a comfortable boot at all! Especially if you have narrow feet.I was more interested in why my foot was hurting than enjoying the backcountry skiing.

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..

Same problem with the Fisher laces. Too wimpy, come loose, and stretch a lot. Get some wider laces that won't stretch and you'll feel a big difference! If you need more support in the heel and arch get some decent $40 footbeds. I hate having to put all that extra cash in any boot but it's the only way to get that custom fit. I've done it in my Alpine ski boots and its worth the investment.
