Product Info

Salomon Quest 12 Alpine Touring Ski Boots 2011: Most skiers look at a mountain and end up going down it. You however, with the help of the Salomon Quest 12 Alpine Touring Ski Boots, hike right up and over the mountain. Built with the ability to change on the fly from a stiff downhill boot to a wa hiking boot, they are your ticket into the backcountry.

Product Details

Materials

The backbone walk/ride lever uses a magnesium metal to improve power and transmission when engaged. The boot sole uses a contragrip traction sole for improved traction when walking and better durability which will keep you from buying a new pair every other year.

Flex and Fit

The flex rating is 120, so when they are not in walk-mode the Quest boots are stiff and responsive. The 101mm forefoot width provides quite a bit of room in the toe box. Salomon has used their pro model CustomFit boot liners which mold to your feet and feature Biovent technology to keep your feet warm and dry all day.

Cuff Shape

With the Salomon Quest 12 Alpine Touring Ski Boots there is a cuff release system that allows you to change from walk mode to downhill in seconds. When the boot is in ride mode the forward pressure plate pushes your knee forward giving you more control over your ski and makes you a better rider.

Important Note

evo does not recommend using the Salomon Quest 12 Alpine Touring Ski Boots with Dynafit bindings.

    Great boot! Feels true to size (I have a wide foot). Very comfortable and warm. The walk mode is great for hiking and walking back to the car.

    Comments about Salomon Quest 12 Alpine Touring Ski Boots 2011:

    These boots are extremely lightweight and highly adjustable. I have a high arch and usually wear a size 8.0 street shoe (42 European). The 25.5 was a tad snug, but the 26.5 was too big. Too bad they don't come in a 26.0. While relatively easy to put on, they were difficult to get off, probably due to the sizing being a tad too small. I probably would have rated them a "5" but for the sizing issue.

    Walk/ski latch on the back of the boot is nice, though I found myself frequently skiing in the walk mode for greater range of motion. The absence of a true top buckle (uses a "power strap" instead) made the top of the boot around the calf not feel tight enough.

    Toes got a bit cold in 20 degree weather, but could have been a result of the snug fit cutting off circulation (wore thicker socks that day). You definitely want to wear these boots extensively around the house before hitting the mountain to get a comfortable fit out of the heat reactive liner.

      Comments about Salomon Quest 12 Alpine Touring Ski Boots 2011:

      I've had alot of Salomon boots. Skied the CS Pro last year. I was looking for a good hiking boot I could ski in all year as well. I have a narrow ankle and a wide forefoot. With just a tiny stretch in the sixth toe area this boot fits like a glove. The lace up liner, and the big 55mm strap make this boot fit perfect. It also has a big block of shock absorbing rubber under the rear of the foot board for big landings. I can't say enough about this boot. It's really comfortable hiking as well as skiing. It's just great!!!
