WIN! Salomon ski boots worth £400
Planning on charging down the piste or pootling in the powder? If there’s one key piece of kit that can make optimise a happy experience, it’s your own pair of ski boots. Salomon make it their mission to maximise boot comfort, with no compromise on performance of course.
XPRO 90 BOOT FOR WOMEN
It doesn’t take a genius to point out that women’s calves and feet tend to be a different shape to mens’, so choose a women’s specific model such as the X Pro 90W. It has a calf adjuster, oversize pivot for better transmission and is 15% lighter than other boots on the market thanks to the chassis material and lightweight foam.
S/MAX 120 BOOT F OR MEN
Salomon’s radical new way of building their boots involves a close fit, stiff frame covered with thinner shell walls, for more sensitivity and better transmission. It makes them amongst the lightest, most powerful boots on the market, also helped by the clever seamless liner. The new Custom Shell HD moulding system is faster and more effective than ever before, resulting in a better shape and more comfort and precision.
Always make sure your boots are fitted by an experienced fitter – they will heat mould the shells and liners to your foot shape and can make adjustments around anomalies such as particularly prominent ankle bones, or a high instep. The winner of our prize will be invited into their nearest Snow & Rock store for their personalised fitting.
