Roxa RX 1.0721 1442
Everything you want from a ski touring boot: light weight, large ankle movement and easy to change from ski to touring mode. The Roxa R1.0 is a pin binding compatible ski touring boot that is packed with useful features for skiers weather they are new to ski touring or old hands. This boot has two buckles which keeps weight down and makes it easier changing between uphill and down hill modes. The walk mode can be operated with your hands or a ski pole and is made with carbon so you know it won't break when you're far from help. The liner is light weight and breathable so your feet can regulate their heat when you're working hard.
A super light mountaineering boot with a convenient touring mode that could be good for rando race applications or low-angle woods exploration—testers found the RX 1.0 a little under-gunned for serious downhill performance.
This is a compact unit, fitting shorter than most in length and tighter than most 98mm boots in the toebox, testers agreed. Going up one size might be the key for all-day touring comfort, they said. The cuff fits low on the leg with a firm tongue against the shin. Testers said the flex was long and soft.
The light weight and hike mode range of motion were stellar—great for ascending, testers concurred. The low cuff height and collapsing flex made this a foot-steering machine with low horsepower for controlling skis. Long approaches, however, will not phase this one.
The oversized hike mode switch was easy to operate and availed a ton of range of movement—so testers approved. Low-tech fittings are standard Dynafit certified and the 45mm power strap is a pulley-style, set-and-close number.
