The F1 is anatomically dialed for a narrow- to medium-wide foot. The stock Intuition liner, when molded, fit perfectly in all the right spots. For such a lightweight boot, it performed superbly with rock-solid heel and instep hold via its Boa buckle. Yes, it’s softer than other touring boots, but the flex feels stiffer than a 95 and the lateral stiffness and Carbon Core Construction allow for smooth, predictable turns. Easy and efficient, the boot offers 62 degrees of motion while skinning. —Erme Catino
