Some testers took to calling it the Little Blue Pill—apt, since the RS140 has done it again and again and again without taking a break.  Topping the podium, we mean. The boot makes it ridiculously easy to ski blindingly fast, carve pure arcs across any rock hard surface and crank-off short radius turns at an auto-burst speed. Testers unanimously said the boot was up to any task, no matter what pitch or snow surface they encountered.

They put its power, stability, quickness, and balance scores at the very top of the charts. One tester called it, "Smooth and sensitive yet blindingly powerful.” Several other testers echoed that sentiment declaring it “F1 quick with horsepower to match,” all the while providing daily driver accessibility.

The shell is unchanged from past versions but the lace-up liner has been modified with a slightly thicker and denser foam and flow cork lay-up. That creates a more contained fit, filling in the gaps between shell and foot without creating excess bulk. The RS 140's front-end still resides on the relaxed side of the narrow category fit spectrum; testers noted a fair amount of toe room and forefoot freedom, especially given how shrink-wrapped the fit felt elsewhere (midfoot, ankles, heel and lower leg shaft).  The comfort and toe wiggle room belies the power and precision of the RS's on-snow game.
