Though the subtleties of downhill performance with training heels may elude me, boot and ski performance is relatively easy to evaluate. I managed to get on four different AT boots for next season – Tecnica’s Cochise Pro Light, Dalbello’s Sherpa, next year’s addition to the groundbreaking Virus, a pair of Lange XT‘s, and one of Black Diamond’s new Free Tour boots, the Prime.

Even Lange is joining the backcountry next year with their announcement of the XT boot.
The XT has all the basic features you would expect in a randonnee boot, like a cuff that locks forward at ~20° but releases for walking comfort.
