Salomon QST Pro 130 TR Ski Boots

Now in its second year of production, the Salomon QST Pro 130 TR is back after a successful entrance the market. This year the QST Pro 130 TR comes out of the box with Alpine Touring ISO 9523 compliant soles, although standard ISO 5535 soles are also included in the box. 360° Custom Shell technologies will allow your bootfitter to completely adapt the boot to the shape of your foot and lower leg, pushing the width from a 100mm lasted boot out to a 106mm. A custom fit liner and the Endofit tongue will give great resort performance yet still maintain comfort for long back country missions. At a weight of 1725g per boot in a 26.5 and a walk mode that unlocks a massive 40° range of motion, the QST Pro 130 TR should definitely be on your radar if you’re after a ‘cross-over’ style boot that will perform equally well on the skin track as it will inbounds.

Initial impressions in a shop-test of the QST Pro 130 TR are of a boot that fits nice and snug around the whole foot and lower leg without being overly tight. The flex feels a little soft for a true 130 rated boot however we expect this to stiffen in colder temperatures and be pretty spot on. Thanks to the the Endofit tongue, which functions somewhat similar to a separate part of the shell a.k.a 3 Piece Full Tilt boots, there is a secure fit over the instep. Even if there is pressure coming from the shell, Salomon use a plastic called Kaprolene which allows them to mold any shell to a pretty much any foot. In the case of the QST Pro 130 TR, it will expand the last width from 100mm to 106mm, or from a standard width boot to a very wide boot. Pre-molded ankle pockets deliver great ankle hold  and comfort whilst the upper cuff fits securely around a standard calf shape with the use of a cam style power strap and oversized shin buckle.

Touring in the Salomon QST Pro 130 TR will be effortless with its lightweight, standard tech inserts and great walk mode. A rockered sole with Contact Grip will make walking and scrambling over rocks much easier and much more safe.
