The Atomic Hawx Ultra XTD 130 Ski Boots came out swinging last fall and set a new bar for power and precision in a superlight boot. Weighing in at 1400 grams per boot in a 26.5, the Hawx Ultra XTD beats many popular touring boots at their own weight game, and handily whips them in the stiffness category. With a 54deg range of cuff motion and walk mode and pivot hardware courtesy of the proven Backland Series, the XTD series enjoys a smooth uphill mode you'll have to experience to believe. The Hawx Ultra XTD has a moderately narrow forefoot with ample volume over the instep region, and can be heat molded using Atomic's Memory Fit process to fit most average to slightly wider than average feet. If you're looking for one boot to rule the alpine, sidecountry and touring realms of your ski kingdom, the Hawx Ultra XTD 130 Ski Boots may just be the new heir to the throne.
