Let’s play a quick word association game. What comes to mind when we say “supreme comfort?”  Down comforter? Leather recliner? Sleep Number mattress? A pile of huggable plush toys? Asian massage? Well, mash-up all those things in a ski boot and you’ve got the new Vector Evo 130. It’s so comfortable it practically climbs onto the foot and begins to rub it with kittens!

What else? Well, it was damn hard to leave the test center to ski it. Testers seemed to want to sit around in them, maybe order a cocktail and hang by the fire. But head outside they did where they were pleased to discover that the Vector Evo still skied with Head precision. Several testers had been doubtful based on the extreme cush-factor initial fit.

The Evo slashed super smooth and predictable turns through a variety of snow conditions with no surprises. Testers did feel the boot ran a lot softer than the 130 label and was light on the rearward support. Head acknowledged our findings and said production boots should run 5-7% stiffer than the ones we tested.

The Vector Evo fits like a generous medium width—with more room than category average at the forefoot—but maintains enough linkage with the ankle, heel and calf to enable quick moves as needed. On top of this already sweet, anatomical fit, Head's new Form Fit heat-and-mold shell technology provides added shape matching.
