It is matte black with orange and red buckle accents and a touch of fur on the liner. We don’t usually lead our reviews with a focus on cosmetics but the Pure Elite 120 received more comments about its sexy graphic motif than any other boot—testers loved it. They also loved its hard-charging nature. It combined strong ski command on edge at speed with a lively, spring-loaded flex. That made for quick moves and successful adventures on and off-piste.

Testers said the fit was curvy and anatomical in shape, addressing common wide spots and bony prominences well. Most also mentioned it fit more like a Medium than a true Narrow so good skiers looking for a little additional space to spread-out shouldn't be scared off by its 98mm label.

Our thicker calf testers loved the way the cuff flared to match their leg shape. It maintains a tall, supportive fit but opens up just enough to eliminate that too-common jab in the back of the leg.

Testers liked the fore-aft stance best with the thin-rear spoiler installed. It offers a slightly more aggressive forward position. They said the lateral balance was spot-on for agile, strong skiing.
