Testers were surprised by how well this softie skied all around the mountain, and they  liked its easy-going medium-fit attitude as well. With a adequately functioning tour-mode enhanced by the cabrio's long forward travel range, they said the X-Ride was comfortable for the up and the down. While testers said that it performed with better-than-listed power (for an 80 flex), they still noted it would be a boot best utilized by lighter and less aggressive backcountry skiers.

The ratchet style instep buckle worked well for restraining the heel, keeping it in its pocket, and testers felt the intuition liner was pre-molded enough to fit right off the rack, though noted that a cook job would only enhance the internal shape.
