Pros All mountain performance, adjustable flex, integrated heatingEasy to put on, innovative designAdjustable flex, comfortable, very responsiveCustomizable fit, loves carvingVery responsive, energetic, comfortable
Cons Lacks user guide for tech, charging cable is shortLow on performance, huge footprint, expensiveOverrated flex, not sturdy enough for +150L skiersWimpy power strap, too stiff in some conditionsWimpy power strap, overrated flex
Bottom Line This boot sacrifices nothing. It offers performance, comfort and warmth in a sleek looking bootApex thinks outside the box for this design, we only wished it performed betterThis great all-around ski that is a race-inspired option for intermediate to advanced skiersThe Mach1 is accurately named, it loves flying down the hill as fast as you are comfortable driving themIf you want to ski the whole mountain but prioritize finesse over speed, this is the boot for you
