Salomon X Pro 130 2015 Review by A Better Ski

Ski boots are one of the hardest pieces of equipment to review simply because fit and performance are going to vary greatly from person to person. We try and point out how fit and performance are out of the box, but just because it’s comfortable for me, doesn’t mean it is for you. So one of the most important factors for boot reviews becomes how customizable the boot is. That’s what really sets the Salomon X Pro 130 for me. The Salomon X Pro 130 has a fully customizable liner, shell, flex, and last. Out of the box, the liner is comfortable. I felt like I had a lot of room in the toe box, and for the most part heel hold was really good. The Salomon X Pro 130 does have a race liner that has more padding in the heel and ankle to provide better hold. This boot felt much better than any of the other wide lasted boots I have used. Since I have a bigger foot (and normally like a 104 last), the Salomon X Pro 130 is actually relatively tight. Those on the smaller end of the spectrum (100 last), may find the boot to have a slightly roomy fit and I wouldn’t be surprised if the foot would move a bit when flexing the boot. Molding the boot shell to your foot would definitely help alleviate any of these issues. I love how customizable this boot is, and when done correctly it can conform to your foot to provide a very solid fit. The flex can be adjusted from 120-130, but I do feel that it’s not quite as stiff as the number would suggest. The boot also has a relatively neutral stance, and I did find it to be relatively powerful. Sure it’s not a super stiff racing boot, but the Salomon X Pro 130 is still pretty stiff and powerful for a very customizable all-mountain type boot. I think the biggest thing to love about this boot is just how customizable it is, while still being a very good performing boot.
