Rossignol X5 OT
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The new X5 OT (Off-Trail) by Rossignol provides increased off-trail versatility, durability and warmth thanks to Cordura lace covers and Thinsulate lining. In-track or off-trail, the free-hinge cuff with velcro powerstrap provides fuller mobility, stability and control.
The Rossignol X5 OT off-track touring boots offer comfort and warmth for recreational cross-country skiers who like to explore on and off the trail. Thinsulate(TM) polyester/thermo-moldable foam insulation supplies non-bulky warmth and comfort even when damp; after a few days of skiing the foam molds to your feet. Hinged cuffs with rip-and-stick power straps provide torsional stability and control without hindering movement. Reinforced toe boxes, midsoles and heel counters deliver increased support, stability and durability for exploring on- and off-trail. Medial and lateral webbing reinforcements integrated into the boots' lacing system securely wrap the feet and lock down heels and insteps, maximizing support and control. External cuff gaiters help keep snow from getting inside the boots. Snow and ice rolls off the durable Cordura(R) lace covers of the Rossignol X5 OT boots and helps keep feet warmer.
You might not know where you're going, but you're guaranteed to get there with the Rossignol X5 OT Boot. Deep drifts, icy crusts, windslab, and tight spaces are the snacks that the X5 feasts on, as its ultra-durable Cordura lace covers, external cuff gaiter, and PVC lower cuff keep the elements at bay no matter the terrain or conditions. Long, foot-punishing days aren't an issue, either, thanks to the X5's thermo-moldable liner and Speed Lace that combine to provide a comfortable all-day fit that's enhanced by Thinsulate insulation, and you'll be able to cover serious ground with the flexible free hinge-cuff and hook-and-loop powerstrap. Since the X5 is burlier than your average Nordic boot, it requires a special NNN BC binding that has the muscle to handle wider skis and demanding terrain.
