Lange RS 130 Ski Boot - Men's Reviews

Great race boot

Posted

Pros: Fit is great, response excellent. You'll feel the ski and thus the hill. The pull up tonge make in/out easier then one expects with a race boot.

Cons: Spend the extra money to have a real proffesional fit it, too much boot/money to just let a sales person do it. A little tough getting in and out of.

Great hill and ski feel - like a direct connection to the ski. Super responsive yet comfortable but don't look to relax too much using them, you do have to stay fully engaged in the moment or they'll seemingly go off without you (not particularly untypical of this caliber boot, but a bit friskier than the Banchee 9). Might also be me needing to improve too! However they're a very "honest" boot and they have very solid, quick, positive and direct control - but with that said it's clear they are meant to be "directed" by the skier pretty much all the time.

Pros: Nice color

Cons: No replaceable heel/toe inserts,cheap strap, buckles.

Me: 6"2, 150 lbs. 58 yrs old, athletic. Advanced intermediate.Low volume foot.Used with Line Prophet 100's.Love powder sking. Like many people I was skiing in boots that were too big, so I decided to spend the big buckos to get the expertise of a boot fitter.The control is better but I can't say it's revolutionary. For the price I'm not impressed with the quality.Namely the lack of heel/toe inserts, cheap looking buckles and thin booster strap compared to Nordica. Not impressed.

Pros: Best damn boot I have ever had

Cons: No rubber soles

I had to write this review after reading one that didn't exactly "review" the quality or experience of the boot. This is the best boot i have ever owned.  Grew up racing in AK, like to ski very fast and aggressive, 90% off piste.   The new "natural stance" is something that you feel right away, 4 degrees ramp in boot board, and 12 degrees forward lean.  You can steer the ski with your entire leg/foot as opposed to the old "racer stance" boots of old that I always felt was at the top of the boot/shin.  Not as tiring either, as I am more upright all day as opposed to being "knees bent, ass out" in the lift line. The fit is amazing, it fits perfect without a lot of...
