Our Verdict

The Rossignol Alltrack 130 GW is a boot that is part of the growing trend of being compatible with multiple binding systems, including tech bindings for touring out of bounds, as well as offering stiff four buckle performance for resort skiing. While these boots have a walk mode, we do not consider them contenders against dedicated touring boots, but they are useful on shorter tours and boot pack. Their range of motion may be lacking, but the comfort and predictable performance in-bounds make them an attractive option to consider.

The Alltrack 30 has received some cosmetic updates since we last tested it, but the specs and performance remain the same. The updated color scheme is shown above.

Comfort


The Alltrack 130 has a last width of 100 millimeters. This is an average width that should fit a medium volume foot well. It seemed about spot on, though we had some issues with tightness around the midfoot before we allowed the liner to shape to our foot. We were really impressed by the quality of the liner in the Alltrack 130. Once that was done the boot felt good enough to wear all day. In this model, a step up from the Alltrack 120, we see a heat-moldable liner that is of good quality and is pre-shaped. While one of our testers who has a narrow heel complained that it was too roomy, another enjoyed the added comfort of having a boot with a generous heel pocket, an attribute harder to find without getting custom molding done.

Performance


The Rossi Alltrack 130 is a user-friendly ski boot that delivers predictable performance in most resort ski conditions. The relatively stiff boot combines four buckles with a power strap to ensure a secure fit, and the Generative Grid Design of the shell ensures good power transfer edge to edge. We felt that the forward flex was perhaps a bit soft when compared directly to other 130 rated boots in this review, especially in bumped-out conditions. Still, it is certainly stiffer than the Alltrack 120 and can handle almost anything you can throw at it while being able to drive a wide variety of ski shapes and lengths.

Materials & Durability


We have no concerns regarding the durability of the Alltrack 130. The replaceable soles will help to prolong the life of the boots if you put in a lot of miles walking around without your skis on.

Warmth


The Rossignol OptiSensor Custom T1 liners are some of the better ones we tested, and we found that along with the added insulation provided by the Thinsulate Platinum that we did not have any cold issues while wearing these boots. Some of that may be attributed to the roomier fit of the Alltrack 130 GW, as these boots do not constrict our feet in the ways that more race-inspired boots do, giving our feet a bit of extra circulation. These boots are some of the warmest in our review, but if you tend to have cold feet then you may still need to supplement with aftermarket heating products for your boots.

Features


This boot has four micro-adjustable buckles and a power strap. It comes with a GripWalk sole as well as tech fittings, which means you'll need GripWalk compatible bindings if you choose to ski these boots in the resort. The canting is adjustable, though there is only one forward lean setting, so boot shims will be needed if you like to ski farther forward. The Alltrack 130 GW has a walk mode that is intended to push this boot into the freeride category, but we felt that the range of motion was too limiting to make it useful as a ski touring boot. Its purported 50-degree range seemed excessive, and we would have estimated it at 25 degrees. This is a nice feature for getting to the lifts, booting up a sidecountry hike, or doing a short tour out at the bottom of a backside run, but we wouldn't take this out on a full day of ski touring.

Value


The Rossignol Alltrack 130 GW boots are somewhat pricey, but provide a high level of stiffness and a nice liner. We feel that these boots are a good value.

Conclusion


The Alltrack 130 GW is compatible with multiple binding types, but won't fit your old alpine binding. Make sure they will work with your bindings or prepare to replace them. They are super comfortable for all day skiing, and while they are not as stiff as some, they offer plenty of support and performance for the intermediate to advanced skier. The walk mode included is good but not great, and gives some more functionality for getting to the ski lift in the morning and going on very short hikes and tours.
