    I went in depth on this a few months ago. I could be convinced to sell the RX Tour (27.5).
    Any links for the sales on the 1.0 or tours?

    Sounds like they were stoked on ‘em. Based on the info I’ve seen so far, it’s an intriguing option....

    The new Transalp caught my attention too along with a G Zero but would be grateful for some other suggestions.

    Am looking for a new light ski mountaineering boot for multiple day trips. Long uphill slogfests will surely dominate so a good walk mode is key. That said it should be decently skiable with a heavier backpack too. Have a small foot (sub 100) with a really low instep. Also full Vibram sole mandatory for long access hikes to the snow line during spring time. Used an old, heavy Nordica boot (1900+ grams) before, anything of today should be better than that but still wanna go as light as reasonably possible.

    WWMD?

    The Salomon S/Lab X-Alp or the almost identical Arcteryx Procline AR Carbon (look for the latest iteration with the added tongue) are what you need. Nothing else fits as well for a low volume, low instep foot, and the walk (with lateral articulation) mode is unbeatable. Skiing is good for a boot in this class. Inexplicably theyíve been discontinued, but remnants are still available, and the used market is strong.

    Thanks, still seems available in my size and will consider it. Only deterrent I can see is the incompatibility with any other than tech binders.

    In all honesty the fitting problem always caught up with me but so far was always able to work around it by adding a suitable sole into the liner plus eventually some boot fitting.

    I only saw the wild snow article, which seemed too positive for me to trust it. And it didn't seem like the author had skied in the boot much - maybe 4 days total.

    ~1300g boot thread

    I skied a day in a prototype transalp pro thanks to some generous shop bros. Just a brief 2500í tour. The fit is interesting, felt fairly roomy in the in step, and decently wide in the midfoot. I couldnít punch the navicular since it was the shops demo, but I had significantly less problem than any other boot Iíve worn without a punch.

    I typically wear a 26 shell a tťcnica Cochise, and they only had a 27 in the transalp. That being said, I was swimming a bit length wise, and to get sufficient heel hold, I had to crank the lower cable strap so tight that it made my feet pretty sore/tired, especially skiing somewhat unsmooth hardpack.

    That being said, the flex felt quite solid for how light to boot was, but also felt that despite the lighter weight, I didnít see a ton of benefit while touring because the ROM in the walk mode only felt okay. Maybe it would have walked better if I had just undone the cuff buckle all the way, rather than setting it at my desired tension and opening it. I left the power strap loose until I skied down. I still feel like the Hoji/Radical Pro walked better, and ended up buying that boot. Specifically, I felt like the rearward range of motion of the TS Pro wasnít great, although one of the shop guys said he felt the opposite, and that it went rearward too far, and he wanted more forward ROM. So donít take my word for it.

    I should note that swapping the liner in this boot would change how it skis significantly as the lower shell does not overlap, but rather there is a gusset to keep water out. Instead, the tongue of the liner has a beefy amount of hard plastic so when you apply pressure to the front of the boot, the liner distributes a lot of that force. In this way, itís sort of a hybrid between overlap and three piece ski boots.

    This is my thought exactly. Lack of friction and ease of stride matter for most of the time you are out. Light boots are nice, but broken boots don't make you any faster.
    I think in the past, all the boots that walked well, were skimo race derived. Adding 150g wonít bother most people too terribly much, and if that can add some durability and ski performance, real world usefulness improves a lot.

    I wonder if people who think Hawx XTD and ZGTP’s walk “fine” or “great” have ever spent any time or long days in a boot that truly walks well.
    Agreed. I have the ZGTP and even with some trimming of the black spine, I still regularly bottom out the forward ROM, even with buckles fully open and the stock liner.
    I know that when that packs out, and I put a MV Tour Pro in there, it will be even more noticeable.
    I think it is a great boot, in how it balances downhill performance with light weight and decent skinning, but there is still a lot better uphill performance possible.

    Also user friendliness is a bit lacking: buckles riveted on and no sliders and catches on buckles for walk mode. This was probably done to save weight (just like the super light liner).

    So I for one, am interested in the “class of boots that walk a bit better than ZGTP, but ski better and last longer than 1kg class boots”. I think the existing title might be easier

    unfortunately for me it seems the models coming out are tending towards the wider lasts. I have high volume feet, but that volume all in the instep(quite tall), super skinny ankles and calves and not very wide forefoot.

    Very much agree. The only ask of the F1 LT imho was for an F1 that walks like the RS. The sub-1kg weight is relatively irrelevant to me (and I care about weight).
