The cream of the crop of the Rossignol skate-skiing boots, they offer scientific precision and deliver exceptional comfort for such a stiff boot.
What are the features of the Rossignol X-IUM Carbon Premium Skate cross-country ski boot?
With this boot, we are entering into the highest category of skate-skiing performance, and there are plenty of arguments to back this up. Firstly, Rossignol chose to call on the same technologies as the old Premium for the chassis and strap, with both of them made out of carbon. The chassis completely envelops the back of the foot and the fully symmetrical strap is directly riveted to it. These two parts perfectly ensure the steering of the ski and maintain the ankle on the lateral plane, while retaining the necessary frontal suppleness for ankle flexion. The new features are located at the level of the sole. Also made out of carbon, it is directly bonded to the chassis, does not leave any room for lateral distortion and provides direct and powerful weight transfer. The connection to the binding is now ensured by two lugs bonded to the sole that help to significantly lighten the boot. The boot has been altered and can now be put on directly using tongues. The lace cover goes up to the base of the ankle and is fastened using a very short zip. Finally, the boot is adjusted using a speed lacing system that effectively envelops the foot.
Who is the Rossignol X-IUM Carbon Premium Skate cross-country ski boot aimed at?
With its technical qualities and exceptional performance, you might have expected an uncomfortable fit, but that isn’t the case. This boot enjoys a new assembly: the first lining layer has been taken out at the level of the inner sole and thus leaves more space for the plantar arch. Precise, rigid, technical and comfortable! Experienced cross-country skiers and competitors will make this their weapon of choice, since as well as being a masterpiece of performance, in terms of price it falls well below other boots in the same range. This can be explained by its technique of sole-chassis attachment, which instead of being moulded from a block, is bonded, giving a perfectly equal performance. This new Premium is a definite success!
