The Kyra 95 makes its third annual podium appearance this year. And while it's back relatively unchanged, this unassuming three-piece always surprises our test team; it’s capable, comfortable and versatile.

Some testers were most impressed with its universal fit appeal; the 45-degree Dynalink Rearfoot Retention buckle maintains a comfortably snug instep fit for both high and low volume feet. Testers with a wide range of calf shapes also found a happy place here. Though even without activating the Cuff Volume Expansion feature the cuff fit is generous. The toebox and forefoot is extra roomy, testers report, and especially well-suited to wider feet.

Other testers loved it for how it handles on snow—both up and down inclines. Our skinning tests showed that the Kyra toured fine (although it’s a little heavier than others) but skied down with great aplomb. On- and off-piste, the Kyra 95 demonstrated a strong-enough lateral toughness and predictably smooth transitions from turn-to-turn. “Fun and easy to ski” was the tester takeaway. It was clearly more cruiser than crusher and there’s nothing wrong with that. Though one hard core tester did say it would be perfect for her mom or grandma. We're sure they both rip.
