Head AdaptEdge LTD (2013)
The Adapt Edge LTD, as always, wowed testers with its foot-gobbling girth and Pillsbury Doughboy flex and fit. The Adaptive Fit shell-tightening mechanism provides tremendous versatility, taking forefoot volume from 10 gallons to five with the twist of an Allen wrench. Testers called it the ultimate big-guy intermediate boot with enough power strap to encircle even the whoppingest of calves. Hard chargers noted a hint of weakness on edge, but that'll suit less aggressive skiers fine. Notes: Adaptive Fit technology lets users choose between two last widths by turning an adjustment screw in the sole. Tri-injection frame, four-buckle construction maintains a stable on-snow attitude and features like a flex adjustment, Double Power buckle levers and Double Power Booster strap bump the convenient closure factor.
