The Gist

So many numbers, letters and punctuation it’s a wonder our testers remembered the name of the boot they were testing.  What they definitely remembered was how well it skied. Super performance for the thicker foot and calf at an unbeatable price, the Ten.2 85 W C.A. was a top volume and value combo.

Fit

Open in the toebox, forefoot, instep and calf, right where skiers with wide last feet are looking for extra room to maneuver. Yet it remains snug enough for performance skiing at the heel and ankle pockets. Testers liked the additional room available at the boot top provided by the calf adjustment mechanism.

Performance

When a boot fits like an extra wide slipper, high performance isn't typically the first association one makes. But testers though this 85 flex held up just fine on high speed groomers and crud bashing missions. Several noted that the fore-aft stance is a little more forward than most other wides, so it teams best with a flatter-ramped binding. That will prevent an accidental over-flexed set up and the resulting burning quads. Talk to your bootfitter about this if you are unsure about the proper marriage.

Cool Features

Pretty basic but pretty effective. Three buckles, a 45mm Velcro power strap and a Merino wool liner.
