Salomon X-max 100/120/130 same shell?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Re-asking in a new thread in hopes the title will catch the right eye.

 

I've read comments that the X-max 120 and 100 shells are only different in that the 120 has an extra bolt, and that the 100 can even be drilled for the bolt. 

 

I've also read comments that the 130 and 120 are basically the same shell and I wonder if only the different  liner accounts for the difference in stiffness.

 

So can anyone say if these really are all the same shell?

I'm NOT a salomon dealer, but I would assume they are all the same shape at 98mm    The flex will be stiffer, but also nicer liner, buckles, etc as the price goes up.    Also the shape might be the same, but odds are they use a softer plastic in the same mold.

I guess the softness of the plastic is probably the key to the question. One or two folks have seemed to believe that the stiffness difference in 100 vs 120 is just the extra bolt (the 100 only has one bolt).  Basically what I'm wondering is if I get one, will change of liner and or bolt really make it identical to another, quality of buckle hardware, replacable sole plates, etc notwithstanding.  If your guess is right, then probably not.
