Our test team has observed Roxa's boot lines evolve over the past decade or so and testers are impressed with the traditional overlap design of the R/Fit Pro range. Testers say it fits in alongside the top players in the All-Mountain Traditional category with a full complement of functional features like dual cuff adjustment, dual liner pull loops, GripWalk soles, a two-position instep buckle and custom moldable Ultralon liner ankle pockets. Testers liked the feel of the foot's connection to the snow through the lower shell for making quick moves through all-mountain conditions.
Testers were mixed in their opinions of how well the shell and liner fit the average foot shape, as some mentioned a tighter toebox and forefoot with a more relaxed heel and ankle pocket fit. Most were in agreement that the instep and cuff were fairly open in fit, relative the average for the medium last group. Testers with chronic ankle bone issues and thicker calves found the R/Fit Pro 120 a fantastic match for their fit needs. The liner fit improved for testers throughout their on-snow testing, indicating that the overall fit would improve with heat molding the liner.
Testers found the connection to the snow and terrain well-linked and positive underfoot when standing over the boot's powered-up sweet spot but slender legged testers found themselves seeking the upper cuff's best positioning, whereas the thick-legged felt locked-in where they needed to be for fore-aft balance and a position to attack tricky terrain with.
“Roomy 100 last. Would work for a big, heavy guy that can flex a stiff boot and has a foot that normally fits into a smallish 102 lasted boot. ” -- Jim Morris
“Lots of room in the toes. Heel and ankles held tight. Lots of room for the calf. Boot skis great. Boot's plastics respond positively to subtle movements or full-power on. Upright stance allows for quick feet and fast edge change. ” -- Mike Evans
“It became more even in fit once I was skiing and the liner warmed up. Edge power was good once you find the spot to stand on it. ” -- Mark Elling
“Roxa has come with a boot that will cosmetically fit in on the shelf. Skied well from the foot and lower shell. Extra roomy from the midfoot back, up through the cuff--good for thick ankles, heel and calf. Short edging moves are snappy. Skis on par with the players in the market. A good boot for a person with thick calves. ” -- Bob Gleason
