Great boots that blur the line between free-ride and light-is-right. I'd call them 'free-touring' boots. Stiff and ski very well. Plenty of power to drive big skis at high speed. Despite only having two buckles, the fit is precise. Unlike other 'light' boots, the cuff is tall enough, even in small sizes, to distribute force well on the tibia and not cause a pressure point at the top, just like a good alpine boot. The fit is narrow, definitely a true 98mm last, as claimed. THANK YOU! Buckles are easy to use, as are the power strap and the walk mode. Transitions are fast. Just a couple small gripes: The liner is very thin and not very warm. Sometimes during kick-turns the cuff lock switch gets caught and locks on me, making the next kick turn REALLY hard if you don't notice it. Probably poor technique but maybe could be looked at for next year. The heal pocket could be a bit more snug but if you're looking for a true narrow last, powerful, and lightweight boot, this is it.
relatively light weight
great narrow fit and power
liner- it's not warm
walk mode- occasionally locks out on it's own
heel pocket is a bit roomy relative to last
