The Rossignol BC X5 Cross Country Ski Boots are Rossignol's "SUV" of backcountry touring boots. They act as a Jack or Jill of all trades and may not be the highest performing boot, but will get you from point A to B with non-nonsense performance and efficiency. They can be utilized for both on-track or off trail skiing at the cross-country centers, but can also be used in backcountry to explore deeper and further than the confines of a resort.
Tipping the scales at 1380 grams, it's a lightweight boot that can tackle nearly any task. With a combination of Thinsulate, PolarTech and a Thermo-Adjustable Lining, it's both warm and comfortable. An external lace up lining is easy to use and adjust, and provides snug support for great lateral control and proper boot, binding and ski synergy. An upper Velcro strap sinches down tight and keeps everything together, also providing additional support and control. A rigid NNBC sole provides additional support, leverage and power to your entire skiing package interface, and also gives you solid grip on uneven surfaces when walking or hiking.
Regardless of your pursuit, you now have one pair of boots that can allow you to experience so many different forms of skiing. From the cross-country center, to the backcountry, to meadow skipping, low angle logging roads, and even a casual jaunt at the local playground or park, the Rossignol BC X5 Cross Country Ski Boots will deliver for you in spades. 1380 Grams at 43 size.External 3D Composite Heel Counter.
