One of a host of new side- and backcountry-ready boots built to handle aggressive descents, the Hurricane comes ready to step into alpine or AT bindings and includes lugged soles for ski mountaineering. The boots weigh only eight pounds, four ounces per pair but earned tester praise for their downhill power and ability to drive big skis over challenging terrain—inbounds and out. Scarpa’s PowerBlock walk/ski mechanism is exceptionally rigid in ski mode but allows plenty of ankle articulation for striding uphill. Warm, light Intuition liners provide a custom fit. The Booster strap acts like another buckle, making this rip-ready charger exceptionally responsive. [$739; scarpa.com]

A race-bred, narrow-width offering is no longer missing from Dalbello’s line. The Scorpion, also available in freeride versions, employs a contemporary upright stance. It’s shaped to allow a little extra room in the trouble spots that usually require customization.

The Vector is built for all-day comfort—warm, roomy in the forefoot, easy to get off and on—but it knows where the edge of the ski is and how to get you there. Testers like the Spineflex buckles: The catches are flexible, like vertebrae, for improved shell-wrap.

In general, the RX is slightly wider than the RS, with a 100-millimeter forefoot width, compared to 97 in the RS. (Exceptions: Lange makes a 97-millimeter RX Pro 130 and a 100-millimeter RS 110 Wide.) With the new stance, testers found it skis more from the heel than the forefoot, but they had no trouble adjusting.
