Atomic Hawx 120 (2010)
Atomic continues to build flex into the forefoot of the boot with interesting results. The Hawx line, of which the 120 is flagship, features shell cutaways designed to allow the foot to flex naturally and the ski to flex roundly. The feel is highly tactile; the skier is one with the ski’s sidecut. Heel hold is excellent, and the toe box is roomy. “Skis extremely well,” said Garrett.
