Product Info

The Atomic Waymaker Carbon 130 Ski Boots are designed for the progressive all mountain skier who isn't afraid to work for the goods. A burly 130 flex with carbon reinforced areas in the cuff and shell for increased response and power transmission combine with a sweet walk mode with 35 degrees of cuff mobility to get you anywhere you want to go. Optional ISO Touring norm sole pads with Tech inserts give you the freedom to use any binding system. The Atomic Waymaker Carbon 130 is the perfect choice for hard charging backcountry skiers who want true alpine performance and the ability to tour in one package.

    Comments about Atomic Waymaker Carbon 130 Ski Boots 2014:

    I can confidently say this boot is the best fitting boot out of the box I've ever worn. As an aggressive expert who spends more bootpacking to fresh snow than touring this boot is great. I've toured in it with both an AT binding and replaced the soles and stepped into some Dynafits. The boot works great and has a larger range of motion than any other ski boot I've ever used. If I toured more frequently I would opt for the Waymaker 110 Tour, but don't get me wrong the Carbon 130 is the better choice for me as I prefer to have more performance on the ride down.

    The entire series of Waymakers fit differently than the other high-end boots Atomic has put out. It's wide enough to accommodate most feet but still has enough retention that a mid to narrow volume foot will still enjoy it. The biggest improvement in fit for me is right over the instep. It just feels like the right amount of room, where previous models have left space and me trying to figure out how to take up that room. I was worried it would be too big after a bunch of days in them but after 40 days or so all that was loose was a bit around the ankle which was quickly remedied with foam donuts. I highly recommend this boot and a lot of my friends are already on it or trying to find it. It's everything I need; a huge range of motion for hiking, all day comfort and warmth, response and power plus it's easy to get in and out of.

        Comments about Atomic Waymaker Carbon 130 Ski Boots 2014:

        The Waymaker Carbon 130 are an awesome boot! I've never had a boot that fit so well right out of the box and use without any problems. I would say that the boot is truly a 130 flex and didn't loose any stiffness after a season of use. With the walk mode, the Waymaker's are a great boot for quick tours to find the fresh snow. I love the Live Fit Zone as it allows your foot to expand naturally making the boots comfortable throughout the day with no loss in performance. All in all, Atomic produced a great boot!

        Comments about Atomic Waymaker Carbon 130 Ski Boots 2014:

        I chose this boot because it was reported to have a large instep and wider width. Most performance boots are to low in the instep for me. The LIVE FIT is nice on the "sixth toe", I normally need a punch on traditional shells. As others have stated they are not a true 130 flex more like a progressive 110-115 flex IMO. I don't mind working a boot to make things work so I am ok with this and for me they still work great to push bigger skis. I haven't used this boot for touring yet as I have lighter options, but they are so comfy I will probably get the tech soles and give it go

        If you are looking for a low or even mid volume true 130 flex boot this is not it. If you have wide feet with a high instep this could be a great boot for you. Its hard to find boots that fit this way, I hope Atomic keeps this boot around.

          This boot is a great fit for my foot. Some people may find it to be a bit wider than normal, and a taller instep, but I can honestly say its the first boot I've ever been able to wear straight out of the box. I'm a big fan!

              Not sold on the Waymaker - Skied the 130 about 40 plus days and not impressed. Skis like an intermediate sub 100 flex boot .Sorry Atomic I really was hoping they would work for a big guy free ride boot.
