Men's Technical Frontside 17/18 Models


Salomon XMAX 120

Fit: Narrow
Flex: 120

The XMAX 120 is geared towards high performance, technical skiers looking for a stable, responsive ride. The 120 flex packs plenty of power, but offers slightly more forgiveness than a 130 flex. The 98mm shell, featuring Salomon’s Custom Shell technology, offers precision and adjustability.

Bootfitter’s comments: Salomon’s XMAX series have long been bestsellers in the category of technical boots. Packed with race technology, but offering a customisable shell, and a surprisingly accommodating forefoot, which add a little bit more comfort and versatility than a pure race boot. The XMAX 120 should be on the radar of all serious skiers who want a high performance boot they can wear in comfort all day!
