Salomon XWave 10/Rush 9 (2007)

Pro Chocolate or vanilla? The Falcon/Scarlet (see above) and the XWave/Rush finished with similarly high scores; the choice is a matter of taste. Testers who are fit and aggressive liked the Falcon's hair-trigger response and vacuum-packed fit. Those who are a little more laid back favored the ゚ber-comfy XWave/Rush, feeling the tradeoff in power was acceptable. Like the Falcon/Scarlet, the XWave/Rush shell is softened on the lateral (outside) wall in a way that makes it less precise, so the inside ski feathers more easily. The 3-D instep buckle does a great job of personalizing fit, and the liner earned high marks for comfort. "This one could put us out of business," joked master bootfitter Denis. Wax found it "highly sensitive, without the onerous fit of a race boot." Con Cuff rises high on leg. Short skiers could have stance issues. Top Scores Closure System 4.0, Forward Flex 3.9, Skiing Comfort 3.9
