SupperJumpsI’ve been looking for a pair of touring boots to pair with my Lange RX130 LV’s. I tried on the Atomic Hawx Ultra XTD 130’s and they might be the best fitting boots I’ve ever tried on. I’m 6’4” with long legs, so I appreciate the additional boot height (compared to my Lange RX130 LV’s). I like the fit so much that I’m considering replacing my Lange’s with the Atomic Hawx Ultra 130 S (the non-touring version) for resort use. My only concern about the Atomic Hawx Ultra 130 S is how light they are. Being 6’4” 200 lbs, something with a little more weight and suspension would be ideal... but the fit of the Atomics is just so nice. I love that they sit higher up on the leg. Are there any other boots that fit similarly to the Atomic Hawx Ultras (tall, narrow last) that I should be looking at? Or am I thinking about weight too much and I should just take the plunge on the Hawx?
animatorIf you’re gonna buy the Ultra XTD which weighs just about nothing, why are you concerned about the weight of the alpine version? Because if you’re just skiing resort there might not be enough suspension or?
