104mm last: Comfort is key for skiers matching up to this last width. It is roomy and comfortable, making it the preferred choice for recreational skiers that demand comfort above all else. This is the boot type that most recreational skiers prefer.
70 Flex Index: This boot has a flex rating of 70, which is best suited for beginner and intermediate skiers. Softer boots will be more comfortable, but won't offer enough stability at higher speeds. Stiffer than 70 will give that stability, but start to get a little less comfortable.
Tongue Pull: A loop of fabric at the top of the tongue helps in putting on and removing the boots. Pull it forward and to the side and your foot should slide right in.
Micro-adjustable aluminum buckles: These aluminum buckles can be moved to adjust for size, so if the default position of the buckle and the teeth is too wide or too narrow, you can move it until it fits.
45mm Strap: Super wide strap found on high performance boots. The extra width spreads out the force while skiing and reduces the pressure point on the upper shin.
Replaceable Toe and Heel Pads: This is a must-have for skiers that don't live in ski in/ski out condos. When your ski tech tells you that you have to buy new boots because the soles are worn down too much, just laugh at him and tell him to order you a new set of sole plates.
My Custom Fit Liner Sport: This boot comes lined with Salomon's My Custom Fit liner (sport) edition. My Custom Fit liner is a moldable liner, that is a somewhat less stiff version of PRO edition. Good for all day comfort, lightweight, but still provides a strong custom-molded fit for aggressive skiing.
Hike and Ride Technology: A flip lever at the back spine of the boot has a toggle to switch from Ski or Walk mode. Try to keep it in ski mode while skiing, or it might feel a little funny skiing in the back-seat like its nobody's business! This does make walking around the resort looking for the bar or the kids a little more comfortable.
Alpine Touring Ready: These boots are equipped with a Hike/Ski switch on the back of the boot. Whether you need to bootpack (hiking up with your skis over your shoulder) or using skins and touring bindings (the bindings are designed to lift up at the heel, while using skins on the bases of your skis to provide traction while going uphill) these boots will provide much more range of motion in your legs, resulting in less pain and faster ascents!
