Unchanged from last season’s debut, the MTN Lab has become the boot of choice for many backcountry skiers for its low weight and high performance. The MTN Lab’s oversized pivot, 98-millimeter last with 120 flex, and forward lean based off the X-Max series give it superb downhill capabilities, and the 1,500-gram weight and quick transition Surelock mechanism is incredibly smooth on the skin track. The stock moldable liner is best in its class, and with a few fine-tune tweaks delivers the best one-boot quiver in the industry. –Erme Catino
