So good, there must be black magic involved.
Tele skiers always win, because when you're lunging like an '80s aerobics instructor with every turn, six inches of powder turns into full overhead. Not only do knee-droppers get more face shots, but they get to wear the Scott Voodoo 75mm Men's Telemark Boot while getting said face shots; victory's sweet, ain't it?
With a burly mountain-man flex of 130, overlapping PowerWrap construction, and a big ol' power strap just for chuckles, you can ski the Voodoo as hard as you want without powering through the front and ending up forehead-down on the snow. It has an adjustable spoiler to help you customize the 13-degree lean angle, and an asymmetrical bellows design for the proper flex. Scott also used four separate injections to create the lower shell, making a boot that's laterally stiff so you can power through turns without tipping over or twisting over your ski.
Although it's designed for hard-chargers, the Voodoo goes up almost as fast as it goes down, with a ski/walk switch that provides 46-degrees of cuff rotation (more than Scott's burliest alpine touring boot, if you care about that sort of thing), and a heat-moldable PWR Tour liner than hugs your foot whether you're on the way or down. Throw in some Wide-Open Buckles that won't re-latch themselves after you've unbuckled, saving you the humiliation of tearing up while you're trying to yank a buckled boot off your foot, and you'll shred circles around all your alpine friends.

- Q & A
The Scott Voodoo 4.5 stars.
I am 6foot 3in, 190 lbs with a 10.5 foot size and I have been riding the 2016 27.5, Voodo 7.5mm for 1 year. It is a great boot! A true all mountain and shredder it does great on the resort, and in the backcountry. It can handle high speed carving and big lines. It does great in powder, powers through chop, carves groomers and remains stable in all situation.
The 3 buckle design allows for a bomb proff boot that is still comfortable while touring and walking. It is a bit softer than than other Ã¢ÂÂraceÃ¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂresort boots on the market but, If downhill performance is you goal and you have a mix or backcountry and resort skiing this boot is a great option and why I give in 4.5 stars
If you are buying a all new setup I would suggest the NTN version. http://www.backcountry.com/scott-voodoo-ntn-telemark-boot-mens?rr=t
Please Contact me anytime if you would like to discuss this or any other products. I would be stoked to help you get on a unique setup for your skill, type and style of skiing!
Mt. Shasta 14,180Ã¢ÂÂ on with Voodoo 7.5mm
too soft for me
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I had high hopes as the old Garmont Synergy was my go to tele boot 10 years ago. Alas, the Scott model is just too soft for me. I was skeptical of the three buckle format, but ordered it up anyway based on a lot of reading.
I never skied in them as my "walk around the house" test left me feeling like they were just not gonna work for me. I really cannot believe that they are a 130 flex as advertised. felt more like a 90 or so. Now - I am a big guy (6'4" and 250 lbs; mondo size 30) and have been skiing on BD Push boots for the last ten years. 22 Designs Axls and Vices on various big stiff skis ... The Voodoo just did not "doo" it for me.
I think these would be nice touring boots for a lighter set up, but I wanted them for inbounds use.
Sent them back and got the Scarpa T-Race instead. Just skied on them for the first time today ... will review after a few days on them.
Editorial comment: I sure do wish BD hadn't bailed on tele ... I think the Push is the perfect boot. I've got too many $$$ invested in 75mm gear and the cost of entry to NTN is too high as i would need to buy new boots and replace binders on four (at least) sets of skis ......
How is this boot without a duck bill possibly compatible with 75mm bindings?
Thank you for pointing out that the photo is incorrect. This boot is the 75mm option. We also stock this boot in the NTN variant. I will request that we update the photo on this listing.
