The key to the Hawx 120's success is I-Flex - gill-like slits at the forefoot that allow flexing of the sole to match the arc of the ski for amazing snow feel. If you've ever had a soft-flexing driver, fly rod or racquet that became an extension of your body, you know the feeling. High marks all around for its long and progressive flex range, ease of entry/exit and warm, spacious fit. Notes: all terrain all conditions cruising machine, i-flex zones at shell's forefoot allow the boot sole to flex underfoot along with bend of ski, 3-degrees of foot abduction allows for relaxed stance and steering movements, asymmetrical liner construction maintains a firm fit for medial side of foot and cushioned fit along lateral side.
