Lange RS 130 (2011)
Dek: 
Lange has dialed in their fit for a more comfortable, but still high performance boot.

Skis get all the hype, which is understandable considering the number of variables you have to address—rocker, dimensions, graphics that match your outfit—but boots are arguably even more important. You can turn fatty pow skis if you’re not locked in to your boots. 

One boot we’re loving, which ex-racers and agro carvers are sure to appreciate, is the Lange RS 130.  Lange has revamped the stance, so it’s less racy and more upright, which our boot testers appreciated, but it still performs like a Lange: lots of steering power and edge-to-edge control. Plus, they’ve fine-tuned the fit to create a little bit more room in the toe box.  More comfortable but just as high performance? Sounds good to us.

I had been skiing on the equivalent boot from almost a dozen years ago. The liner had packed down, and it was feeling a bit stiff. I bought these a few months ago. After six days of skiing, I can say, without doubt, these are the best ski boots I have ever owned. I thought my Shoguns had a bit of chatter at very high speeds. With these boots on, the chatter is gone. While the flex number is the same as my old Langes, there has been "grade creep". They're just a bit softer, which is actually better at shock absorption. The main thing is that they have plenty of forward lean, and a linear flex.
