Today power-classic, tomorrow speedy skating.
It's nice to have choices, but choices that don't mean compromise. The Salomon Pro Combi Pilot Boot kicks Nordic butt in both classic and skate skiing, whether you're in a full-fledged race or just out for a good workout with a killer view. This new version of a Salomon classic features a new flex for improved kick sensation in classic and and an adjustable heel support system for heel-hold precision. The Custom Fit lining with Sensifit features custom foam, thermomoldable foam, and Lycra to provide the ultimate fit no matter how your foot's shaped.
The removable Energyzer support frame delivers high lateral and progressive support, and works with the highly adjustable cuff and adjustable heel strap to lock in your heel. This means faster ski return that allows muscles to relax. The Salomon medium-volume 102-millimeter Sport Fit last keeps the foot in precise position for maximum foothold. Under the zip cover, you'll find the Salmon quicklace system that securely holds things in place and won't slip. The SNS Pilot outsole serves up a nice toe flex power kicking and walkable comfort.

Salomon Pro Combi Pilot Boot
Great do-it-all boot
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Not everyone is made of money, nor does everyone have room in their closet for 20 different pairs of boots for all the outdoor sports they participate in. My gear closet is on the verge of exploding with all of my winter gear packed in there, and it's nice to consolidate when possible.
These boots are a great combi boot. They skate well, and still have the maneuverability to use for classic skiing.
SNS Pilot is the perfect binding for skate skiing. The second axis is a god-send when it comes to stabilizing the ski, and you can push ahead with confidence and surefootedness.
These do weigh a little more than some of the other skate oriented boots, so after a while(especially over hills) they do start to feel a little heavy.
Of course, this is a small price to pay when your friends are digging through their closet to find a missing boot while you are already up at the nordic center doing some laps!
