This boot is the basis for all the Rossignol racing boots, and it wasn’t that long ago that it was the World Cup boot. Its advantage is that it offers impressive skate-skiing quality while preserving a forgiving feel that is not found in boots with a chassis entirely made from carbon.
What are the features of the Rossignol X-IUM WC Skate cross-country ski boot?
With this model, we are entering into the category of the carbon models, boots made to optimise control of the ski and minimise energy loss in weight transfers. There are two lateral carbon edges on either side of the heel as well as an asymmetrical carbon cuff, which is also for stabilising the ankles laterally. The fact that it is asymmetrical is an important factor, since this offers much greater tolerance than a fully symmetrical cuff. The lace cover goes up to above the ankle and, with the help of the thermo-mouldable fit, protects the boot from external humidity. The boot is adjusted using a separate double speed-lacing system. The X-celerator sole is thin and rigid and, combined with the inner carbon sole, gives optimum control of the ski and more effective kicks. With its combination of exceptional skiability qualities and technology that preserves tolerance, this boot has one of the best price to quality ratios on the market.
Who is the Rossignol X-IUM WC Skate cross-country ski boot aimed at?
From regular skiers looking to progress, to experts, this boot is able to adapt to a huge range of skiers. Precise enough for competitions, it nevertheless has the advantage of having tolerance and allows skiers at a less advanced level to enjoy a thoroughly satisfying control of the ski. It has already enjoyed great success for the last two seasons due to being perfectly placed both in terms of design and price to meet the requirements of many cross-country skiers. Long-distance racing enthusiasts will find their match in this boot, as will cross-country skiers at a less advanced level who wish to progress technically.
