The G1 130 Powerfit WTR returned with a more polished look and refined liner construction to earn scoring upgrades across the board. It retained its characteristic accuracy on edge and still sported a lively (if long-travel) flex feel. For as lightweight as this boot is, testers were impressed with its ability to hold skis on edge at speed through a variety of terrain variations.

Testers liked the improvement between the liner and shell interface after fully heat molding the liner so that those interior surfaces could become better mated and avoid slippage. The thermo-molding process also did wonders for the overly tight initial toebox fit (mold with toe caps) and the aggressive hold over the top of the foot (pre-pad any midfoot bumps).

Testers were left wanting a bit more from the hike mode cuff's range of motion, and they still had trouble with the hike mode switch itself which didn't lend itself to intuitive operation.
