The Alltrack Pro 120 is reviewed in the so-called All-Mountain Walk category because it has a hike modality but no tech binding compatibility (found a step up in the 130 flex GW version)—don’t let that fool you! This boot is not about walking, it is all about skiing! The Alltrack Pro line up remains one of our test team’s favorites for a near-perfect combination of convenience, warmth, comfort and absolute skiing power—all wrapped up in a releasable cuff. Where many walk mode boots sacrifice performance for convenience gains, the Alltrack Pro flips that script, maintaining a downhill performance priority, and takes the creature comforts and walkability in stride as a nice bonus on the side.
As with many Rossignol boots, the Alltrack Pro 120 trends toward the roomy side of the width group but without feeling sloppy or poorly shaped. Testers say the roomy toebox and forefoot tapers back to the heel and ankle pocket nicely and the transition from the instep up through the lower leg and calf is anatomically seamless and well contoured. The liner feel is full and well-draped around the foot—an element so lacking in many boots in the All-Mountain Walk category (but this luxury comes with added weight). Entry and exit is a slam dunk, and the buckle-up is straightforward.
Smooth, AWD SUV style all-terrain utility is what testers appreciate about the Alltrack Pro. It may not be the quickest off the start or through the corners, but it might just be the easiest of the group to just put on and go skiing, slaying all in its path, with little adjustment to technique or line selection. Damp, forgiving and plenty strong, testers confirm that it goes everywhere and does everything. Our crew is not particularly impressed with the Alltrack's sidecountry acumen, citing a limited hike mode range of motion and alpine boot weight class, but for mainly area-based sorties it's right on target, they said.
The Thinsulate liner is a warm one, by all accounts, and testers like the option to swap on optional GripWalk soles for better hiking-walking grip and roll (GripWalk compatible or A.T. frame binding required). Testers like the sedate Deep Blue hue.
