Testers say the Rossignol Hi-Speed Pro 130 Carbon MV GW is consistent in fit and performance--it's a no-surprises, bankable boot sitting square in the middle of the Hi-Speed range, between the narrow Elite and the wide HV. Testers say that this three-model line up is ideally spaced, or differentiated, from each other fit-wise but virtually identical in how they each ski. Testers say the idea of "pick-your-width" boot shopping is exemplified in the Hi-Speed line, as there is no performance trade-off for increased width or warmth.

The Hi-Speed Pro sets a standard for medium width fit for many of the test team, who praised the boot as virtually flawless in fit for the average foot and leg. They like the balance the liner strikes between its soft address of the foot with more firmly structured and sculpted pockets for the ankle bones and heel. Testers had virtually no fit issues that would require a bootfitter's help, other than one tester who thought it ran a touch looser than he liked--in this situation a shift to the narrow Elite would be exactly what the doctor ordered.

Testers say this is a legit 130-flex that offers an evenly distributed pressure against the shin and a flex feel that doesn't collapse, even under a serious pounding from a large driver. Stance-wise, testers also found no fault, enjoying the position the boot placed them in for front-to-back and side-to-side movements. Quickness, power and balance scores were all 4.63's, further supporting testers' assessment of the boot's reliable on-snow attitude.

Features were simple but useful: liner pull loops, GripWalk soles, cuff adjustment, Velcro power strap. Testers liked the subtle but stylish Rossi striped pull loops and power strap graphic.

So few complaints from our crew on this one--what's not to like about that?

Kudos

  • “Snug and responsive.” -- Jim Morris
  • “A benchmark for medium width performance and fit--a little on the roomy side of the medium fit spectrum but no fit irregularities. It's super even in fit tension and super predictable on snow. It's easy on, easy off with simple buckles and an awesome stance. It skis great with no problems--home run, again.” -- Mark Elling
  • “A generous medium fit throughout with notably good shaping in the heel and ankle area. I like the feel and consistency of the liner. Easily piloted in any turn shape. Felt consistent in a wide spectrum of skiing from low-end to dynamic. All the boxes have been checked, I see nothing but good things. Solid, wide spectrum skiability, and highly anatomical fit.” -- Marc Stewart
  • “There is no difference between Rossi Hi-Speed models on snow. It just has a more-relaxed fit than the narrow Elite. This skis as good or better than anything on the wall. A perfect medium volume boot. ” -- Kevin Gabriel
  • “Very comfy and easy to enter. Steers high on the cuff, which has the knee more involved in the edge changeover. I like the higher cuff feel.” -- Jim Schaffner
  • “Very strong from edge to edge but agile, too. Very stiff--good for a powerful skier. Hi-Speed Pro is a rally car. Put it on and go rip! ” -- Pat Sullivan

Caveats

  • “Felt a bit loose in between turns, during transition--could feel toes clenching to grab on before setting edge. ” -- Stacy Crumpler
