Element 120 IR
$700 Last: 99mm Flex: 120 1550g
The Element 120 is the top dog in Roxa’s freeski line. Lightweight with optimal structural integrity in a cabrio design, the feel and performance of this boot is solid all around. True to most cabrio designs, it has a great heel hold and a comfy forefoot. The instep is a little on the lower side, but the biggest drawback of this boot might be its shelf appeal. The sublimated graphic came out muddled, as they often do, and the actual feel of the buckles and boot overall left me wanting more. But, when the Element 120 is on and the stiffness is set to ‘rad,’ this boot skis like a high-end piece of equipment. There is room for Roxa to improve as a boot company, but they are well on their way to being a top player.
