Pros Excellent downhill performance, light weight, proven styleLight, free-pivot cuff, appropriate stiffness and flexExcellent downhill performance, durable, warm, reliable, familiarStiff, comfy fit, Intuition linerExcellent downhill performance, lightweight, innovative
Cons Moderate insulation, hard to get in and out ofCold, finicky transitionsVery limited uphill and foot-travel performance, heavyHeavy, high friction cuff pivotClaimed easy transitions leave you in a tour mode that is significantly compromised., binding and crampon compatibility limited
Bottom Line For only the most specialized of needs (super wide feet, high speed climbers, big-cliff-huckers) will it be overwhelmed; this is an excellent ski boot that quietly entered the market and crushes the competitionFor all-around skiing with a light and fast preference, this is a great choiceExcellent for short climbing sessions interspersed with largely mechanized access backcountry skiingFor “crossover” use, choose the right binding, bigger skis, and, if it fits, it can be used for both occasional short human powered runs and inbounds skiingPerhaps the most innovative AT ski boot in eight years; the downhill performance leaps ahead but some of the other innovations are “solutions without problems” that complicate real world use
