What are the specifications of the Rossignol X-8 Classic ski boot?
Even if the X-8 looks very much alike its previous version, this new 2018 boot comes with a brand new sole designed by Rossignol. The manufacturer has developed a new system of bindings named Turnamic and their new boots were obviously made compatible. Speaking about compatibility, this boot works with Turnamic bindings but also with NNN and Prolink standards. This makes the whole binding industry a little more “normalised” and easier to understand. The only boots that won’t work with this new system are the ones using the SNS or SNS Pilot standards. Performance-wise, the boot sole gets thinner and becomes more flexible to enhance the roll. However, the base of the chassis is laterally stiffer and maximises control and precision. The whole system was reinforced to offer more durability. The closure system is a Speedlace Lock for quick and easy adjustments and the liner offers a generous fit for added comfort compared to the race series.
