The RX 130 embodies what savvy testers and bootfitters want in an expert-level, medium-fit boot: functional and comfortable stance geometry, anatomical shell and liner shape, even and progressive flex feel, contoured instep fit, worthwhile all-mountain application tweaks like a rubberized boot board, grippy toe and heel plates, and simple bombproof gizmos like a Cam-lok power strap (even if its end frays too easily). Testers couldn't say enough about how well this boot skied, handling whatever was thrown at it. "Runs hot, but it's not all-or-nothing. Allows modulation of input." Notes: Low-volume (LV) version of the RX 130, with 97 mm last instead of 100 mm. Polyether lower and polyurethane upper maximize strength and dampness, along with a rubberized bootboard and Ultra Grip replaceable soles for impact mitigation. 40 mm CamLock power strap, upper cuff adjustment and rear spoiler on a Control Fit liner comprise the basic features package.
