The Gist

Lightweight and ready for exploration, the Transalp TS Pro impressed testers for its convenient entry, clean closure and pleasant initial fit.

Fit

Testers gave the Transalp consistently even fit scores, but most rated it as a medium width, not a wide. A few mentioned that the ankle pockets and instep were notably snug but the consensus was that the fit wrapped the foot and lower leg well, with no glaring hot spots. Flex feel was considered to be ideally cushioned against the shin but softer in flex than claimed.

Performance

Scores fell off a bit for edge power and stability, with testers citing some collapsing flex feel and lack of lateral transmission to the ski. However, the snug fit translated into well connected steering moves and predictable transitions turn to turn.

Cool Features

Testers liked the Ultralon padding in the liner for better comformation with full molding and the Phatt Maxx Lite powerstrap for its broad wrap across the front of cuff.
