Bridging the gap between on-trail and backcountry touring, the Rossignol X5 OT (Off Track) boots offer comfort and warmth for recreational cross-country skiers who like to explore.
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 binding that has the muscle to handle wider skis and demanding terrain.
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.
