Product Info

The Lange XT 130 LV Ski Boots are the first no-compromise high-performance boots that climb. Natural Stance, mono-injected shells and Control Fit are combined with ultra-durable grip soles and arches, lightweight components, and Power V-Lock shell technology. The unique new, patented Power V-Lock provides excellent climbing range-of-motion. But, unlike all other AT and “sidecountry” boots, XT's feature a structurally superior, performance lower shell. The Power V-Lock integrates into the lower shell for powerful downhill high-performance skiing. Want a walk mode without giving up downhill performance? Now's your chance.

Lange man, you can't beat em. Boot fits like a glove, if you can say that, and man can you push it. I have some old Volkl Bridges that are real mean skis made of ultra adamantium or something and I get to push them to the limit in these. I throw the 165lb's of myself in turns and the boots are like let's do it. If you're looking for a boot that will laugh at your attempt to flex it out, this is it. I feel like Iron Man. Wish I could wear them to work.

Lange like woah!

I have rather narrow feet and most "low volume" footwear fits nicely. These are slightly more narrow than most. Also they are terribly unwarm and quite heavy. The liners have shoe laces which are less easy to adjust than other methods. Mostly disappointed... I got them on a good sale, but would likely not buy them again.

I have Black Diamond touring boots which are slightly less stiff (110), but are sooo much more comfortable. For someone like me, with narrow feet, BD boots are a little wide but I ski better with 'em just b/c they are lighter, easier to adjust and warmer. I just got these new Langes b/c I needed a downhill boot for inbounds skiing.

I ski hugely variable conditions with them and have about 15 days on them so far this year.

      Comments about Lange XT 130 LV Ski Boots 2014:

      I demoed a pair in Valdez blast winter and got into a steep chute. All was going good until I caught a tip on some bristle cone pine like tree and was sent for an evergreen header. It all happened so fast it made me laugh. Then I realized I had to click out of my skis and climb this pine to the surface of the snow. It was at that point I understood the wisdom of Lange for adding that aggressive insole. It took a lot of effort but I got out of that predicament and got my skis out to. Not so sure my old boots would have performed as well. Plus, by walking like a normal person friends have ceased calling me Lurch. What price is worth a persons safety? Granted the area is known for unmarked hazards, but theses give you better odds you'll be there for last run.

        Comments about Lange XT 130 LV Ski Boots 2014:

        I have not yet skied these boots, only tried them on. I read some mixed reviews on these boots and here is my take. I own a pair of rossignol experience 130s which are supposed to be very similar to the Lange RX 130 (I think they are a bit softer flex though than langes). I read a lot of people comments who said an xt boot without rivets can not be as stiff as a boot with rivets. To me, the xt 130 is just as stiff as my rossignols which have a riveted spine. I tried one on each foot, clipped into my skis at home and flexed them forward and could not tell any difference. They did seem softer flexing than the Lange RX 130s but they are still plenty stiff. As far as I can tell, you won't lose much if any performance on these boots compared to a riveted spine like the rx 130 or Rossi 130. I should also note though that the walk mode does not necessarily provide a huge range of motion compared to other at boots. This boot really seems appropriate for people like me who will do 90% of their skiing in bounds and do a short hike here and there for some end of the day powder stashes.

        The liner does not retain warmth well, and will pack out after a season. Otherwise this is a great boot.

          The boots provide instant performance right from the box. You will get total control the moment you put the boots on. The cuff buckles are very useful and allow a lot of flexibility.

          The buckles are difficult to grab with gloves on. Also the liner is a little weird because you need to lace them up.

          Only complaint: The buckles are difficult to loosen with gloves on.

                I bought these boots for my son, he really likes them he has a really wide flat foot. Shell size is perfect. I will ask him how they ski after he uses them a bit more. I would just like to thank EVO for their customer service the first pair they sent was delivered and left on my front porch and someone took them. I called EVO and said I had not received them and that someone had probably stole them. I told them they where a Christmas present for my son. They shipped me a new pair and I got them on Christmas Eve. I buy a lot of equipment on line and this is the best service yet. Thanks EVO for saving my Christmas.

                They fit great right out of the box, snug in all the places they should be. Due to being new, they were difficult to put on, but after two days of skiing St Anton right after a nice dump, they really got comfy quick. Virtually instantaneous translation of motion to the skis, I love them.

                  I bought these because I was looking for a perfect all mountain boot with a high performance fit. The boot is perfect if you have narrow feet. The walk/hike/ski mode is pretty awesome to get to the upper bowls that don't have lift access.
                  I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a stiff boot.

                  I have rather narrow feet and most "low volume" footwear fits nicely. These are slightly more narrow than most. Also they are terribly unwarm and quite heavy.
