The Gist

The 2018 Roxa Evo 120 I.R. is a soft love-bucket of cush with a cuff release mechanism for enhancing apres ski functions. Testers couldn't wait to start the party!

The Fit

Testers said the Evo 120 rides the wide side of the medium-width group, with a prodigiously wide toebox for exceptionally warm piggies. The tongue is cushioned against the shin, and entry and exit is top notch, testers said.

Performance

Testers liked the easy to operate hike mode switch but were unimpressed with its available range of motion. However, they still preferred its bar stool performance over the on-snow sort, claiming that the Evo 120 lacked rearward support and didn't have much of a forward flex to write home about either. There was a sweet spot to make turns from, balanced over the middle of the foot, but it took effort to find that spot and then stay there.

Cool Features

The intuition liner offers increased molding capabilities and the Rox Grip rubber cladding at mid-sole provides sure-footed travel to the ski bus when the party's over.
