I'm debating between the Salomon X-adv 6 vs X-adv 8 boot to use on a madshus eon for out the back door touring in local ravines. (none of the NNN-BC boots available were comfortable unfortunately)
Anyone have any experience with them? I'm not finding a huge number of reviews online.
I realize no system boot will have the stiffness to power downhill turns, but a bit of rigidity wouldn't be bad for very short runs.
I tried both at a local store and found the X-adv 6 way more comfortable, but they didn't have the 8's in the exact same size available (could get it online though). Any major differences between the two besides the gaitor? If they're both fairly equivallent in terms of control, I'd just opt for the 6's given the known comfort and lower price.
