Big power for big-girl rippers is what testers said about the revised NXT N1 W. Wide-lasted for high volume feet and wide at the boot top for muscular calves, this roomy ripper didn't fail to fire up our aggressive testers who said it's just right for real skiers who typically can't find performance in wide rides. The stance is upright and the cuff is tall on the leg and stiff in flex—some, shall we say, more gentle women called it "blocky" and had a hard time getting out over the boot, but our crud bashing trench warriors loved the stout feel against the shin and beat the hell out of whatever terrain came between them and the bottom.

The liner is plush and well padded, and this year re-designed to incorporate the same sort of chipped cork in resin packs at the ankle pockets first introduced in the medium width NRGy and Belle lines. The fit at the ankles is anatomical but firm and quickly settles into a comfortable grip there, even without a full heat-mold, which is an option that can be redone indefinitely if need be.
