Maybe they call it Ghost because you'll think you've died and gone to heaven.
Rip big lines, stomp massive airs, and slash sweeping pow turns when you're locked down in the Salomon Ghost Max 130 Men's Boot. Its stiff and powerful 130 flex rating gives you killer downhill performance, while the TwinFrame shell technology delivers rigidity right where you need it. An Oversized Pivot puts the power on today's wide skis with pressure spread out from toe to heel and right over the edge. How does this monster boot fit? With My CustomFit Pro liner thermo-molded to your foot, in particular at the ankle and heel, this boot fits like a glove, which in turn transfers unbelievable power back to your insane skiing. The Contagrip rubber sole for sure-footedness across the plaza or on a knife-edge hike out of bounds always puts your mind at ease, and interchangeable pads give you freedom to go alpine or WTR touring. This is the hardest-charging freeski boot Salomon offers.

How is the sizing between this new ghost and the old ghost 120? If I fit into a 27 old ghost, will I fit into a 27 new ghost?

Is this a heat moldable shell like the x-max or xpro? I assume it is b/c the ghost 110 specs show a 360 moldable shell.
If so, have you heat molded and how did it change your fit?
How much did the last change? and did the instep change?
Ski better before or after molding?

This is the most comfortable/ bad ass boot I've ever put on my feet! They are perfect for every type of skiing, especially jibbing and crushing big mountain, slaying powder, and popping off kickers!!

Have a question I cant seem to get a straight answer to :
are the soles of the Ghost MAX 130 interchangeable with tech inserts compatible ones ?
yes, they are.

I've got a fairly high instep, and am wondering if anyone has had any problems with this boot having to low of an instep? Can anyone compare the instep to that of a Nordica Dobermann? Also, is there a difference between this years Ghosts, and last years? thanks
I can't help you in relation to the Ghost/Dobermann comparison, however, there are a few differences between this and last years Ghost.
-360 lower custom shell
-slightly bigger toe box (personally I didn't notice]
-altered forward lean angle
Despite what others have said, I don't think they are a true 130, more a 120 and comparable to last years Ghost.
Thanks I20b. How well do would they work with a fairly high instep, if you have any idea? Cheers.
No worries Sigurd. I have a reasonably "normal" instep height, I can get in and out of the boot reasonably well at room temperature. Haven't had a chance to try it in cold temps... The boot fits snug over my instep without having to clamp the lower buckle down really tight, no excess room, but no pressure either. Don't just take my word for it, but unless you have a ridiculously high instep I don't think you would encounter a problem that couldn't be easily resolved by a bootfitter.
I think when I2ob tries this in the cold he will agree that this a stiffer boot than the previous ghost 120.

Can these boots handle a little bit of touring?
I ski mostly inbound but plan to do some touring on a Rocker 2 + Guardian setup. I've also been looking at the Quest 120 boot but I'm not convince they can offer the same fit & downhill performance as the Ghost Thanks.
These could handle some touring on the Guardian bindings. They don't have a walk mode so they won't be the most comfortable, but they will be solid boots for the downhill.
Best Ghost in a while

I got a set of these last spring, and skied them for a month or so. They are sick. A stiff boot for those that want to a high performance freeride boot. Previous to these I was on the Quest Max 120, which I still love, but I do prefer the 2 buckle set up on these. I believe they made to tow box roomier than previous Ghosts. Look no further if you like a stiff boot with high performance comfort. Really stoked they got the Ghost back in the line up!

Is anyone able to tell me how the flex of these would compare to the old ghost 120?
this has a roomier toe box and is definitely a full 130 flex. If you're a Ghost fan you should love it.
the all black ghost 120s I thought were pretty soft for a 120. I put this at a legit 130.
