The Magna is a wider version of the already gen- erous Hawx (and it's heat-moldable), but its fit is accurate and precisely contoured for a thicker ankle, heel, and instep. Its skiability is equal to many narrower boots'. It has more torque than quickness, but with plenty of forgiveness and shock absorption for off-piste detours. Blaylock: "Race-boot power in an all-day fit."

No wonder this boot is so popular. Testers again found it comfortable and warm, yet it still shreds. The stance angles are a bit upright- relaxed enough for autopilot cruising. And the custom-moldable shell personalizes an already no-problem fit. There's nothing not to like here, especially if you've got a meaty enough foot to fill it up. Gleason: "Predictable snap between turns. Good awareness of the ski."

Here's as universal a fit as we found. Testers felt ideally contained. The Hawx is more cruisey and predictable than it is lightning fast, but it skis with enthusiasm and stability, packing more punch than testers expect from a 100 flex, and it seemed to improve more than any other Atomic model after heat molding. Parazoo: "The shell molding is quick. Fits great and skis better."

This three-buckle hike specialist rolled skis on edge and held. The Waymaker combines the carbon-infused spine and tight rearfoot grip of the racy Redster with some comfy shell stretchi- ness at the forefoot. Its strong command center generates powerful lateral moves, and testers said it had a springy quality that promoted ac- tive skiing. Carr: "Quick, fun, and poppy."

Testers liked how it skied and how it fit, frequently praising the Redster's ability to store and release energy. It's snug at the heel and ankle pockets but has one of the more accommodating forefoot and toe-box shapes in the category. The quick-cook Memory Fit shell process opens it up to skilled skiers with thicker feet. Fisher: "The molding was incredible-took all my scores from 8s to 10s."
