Best Downhill boot from last year?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have a suggestion for boots from last year's models?  I'm an Intermediate/Advanced skier looking for something in the 100-120 flex range.

 

Advice greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

You want to make sure you get them fitted, first off

There are some fantastic boot fitters on this forum, and I'm sure they'll chime in.

After that, I can tell you I love my Fischer x100s

I just picked up a set of last years Fischer Progressor 120's.  Had a lot of the same features as their full race boots but seem very comfortable.  You can find them around for under $400 new (ebay)

The one that fits your foot.  It's not the answer you're looking for, but it's the right answer.

This is just a silly statement that brings no useful information to the OP.

 

Besides.......everybody knows that the green ones are more comfy, the blue ones are cooler and the black ones are the cheapest.

So far, I've tried on and been comfortable in the:

Head Vector 110s

Tecnica Dragon Slayer

Nordica Firearrow F3 (this year)

Lange RX120

 

They all seem comfortable around my foot, and I planned on getting them properly fitted.  I was just curious what the top boots were... and if there is a huge difference between those 4, and the others listed so far.

Lange Blaster Pro has 100 flex and ski/hike/walk release cable. Also fits MY wide feet and performs well for YOUR level.....performs well for MY more advanced skill set.

Previously mentioned, they still MUST fit YOUR feet!

I could be way off base here, but I'm guessing if they all feel comfortable they may not be tight enough.

"comfortable" for ski boots.  I fully understand that they should be tight and compressing on the foot.
