This season the X Max series gets a top-to-bottom makeover with the new Twin Frame 2 shell that uses polyamide in the lower shell and spine to increase rigidity and rebound and decrease weight. The new X Max 130 now uses a wide Velcro strap (instead of a cinch strap) and a thinner liner for greater sensitivity and snow feel. The women’s X Max models take performance up a notch with the addition of the X Max 120 W, essentially the men’s 120 with a shorter cuff.
The most awesome aspect of all the X Max models is they have an inherently low-volume heel and ankle area and a forefoot and instep design that allows for almost immediate and permanent modification for a high and/or wide forefoot. This allows for the ideal mix of skiing power and security combined with all-day comfort. Little wonder Salomon is the preeminent alpine boot brand.
