The Gist

Super light and agile—testers said the RX 1.0 W is a great mountaineering boot for long approaches and hut missions with easy-going downhills.

Fit

Testers called it a roomy-narrow, with a hot-spot over the top of the foot that relaxed with some wear time. The tongue is well-cushioned against the leg and combined with a very soft flex feel for long-travel ankle flexion.

Performace

The stance is upright and the fore-aft power is subdued, testers said. They found it able in quick lateral moves but lacking in support both fore and aft when things got underway at speed or in demanding terrain. The touring mode range of motion is vast and smooth, they said, great for the up.

Cool Features

The Quick Carbon hike-ski mode switch is over-sized and easy to operate with gloves on, which testers enjoyed. The two-buckle closure is simple but still took some fiddling with the Velcro pulley-buckle at the top to get closure cinched down just right.
