The 2021/2022 Full Tilt Soul Sister 100 was tested in the women’s All-Mountain Traditional medium category by the experts at America's Best Bootfitters, powered by Masterfit.
The Soul Sister still impresses our test team, year after year, and especially so this year with the stiffness step-up to a 100-flex, which our aggressive skiing crew applauded. They all still struggle a bit with the buckles and cables that are unique to the Full Tilt experience but manage to get it sorted and get on with the business of skiing, which this boot does well.
The length fit is shorter than the average, which some testers were fine with and others mentioned wanting to try the next size up. The spiral wrapping Intuition Pro Wrap liner was well cushioned and warm, and for testers who did a full liner mold it proved highly adaptable to a variety of foot shapes. For those unfamiliar with the process, be sure to work with a bootfitter who will pre-pad bony prominences on the foot and utilize toe caps to maximize available toe length. Our testers with larger calves said that even with the more flared Women’s Cuff, the Soul Sister suits the average and more slender sisters’ calves best. There are long cables available as an aftermarket parts purchase.
Slinky, buttery, slarvy, snappy were the words testers used to describe the Soul Sister 100 on snow attitude. It’s an all mountain performer with a penchant for quick and steery moves, they said. Not that it couldn’t drive a bigger ski or handle harder surfaces, but testers say it’s not a frontside specialist.
Full Tilt’s aftermarket parts menu is a pretty slick set of features in itself—you might select a stiffer tongue or a longer cable for the calf buckle or possibly replacement cuff adjustment cam plates in case you lost them (don’t lose them!)
