A perfect wingman for precision-minded skiers seeking piste-based ski drivers. The Redster returns largely unchanged from last season and continued to amass another trove of accolades. Testers liked how it skied and how it fit.

There were frequent mentions of the boot's uncanny ability to store and release energy from turn-to-turn and its underfoot syncopation that perfectly matched the bending ski through each carving arc. Give credit to the Redster's carbon-injected rear spine construction and grooved sole flex matrix.

Fit-wise, the Redster is snug at the heel and ankle pockets but has one of the more accommodating forefoot and toebox shapes in the Technical Frontside group. It will house many average width feet, not just super narrow pencil dogs. The Redster's quick-cook Memory Fit feature (five minutes in the oven) opens it up to skilled skiers with thicker feet looking for a performance oriented boot without major fit modification gyrations. Our Memory Fit tests showed a general evening-out of fit tension and easing of minor hot spots. Very bony prominences will, in most cases, still require boot fitter hands-on modifications.
