The race-ready Salomon RS Carbon skate boots offer high-performance features and a comfortable fit so you can enjoy day after day of fast-paced skiing.

  • Light and responsive SNS® Pilot®2 Carbon Pro outsoles feature 2 connection points with SNS Pilot skate bindings (sold separately) for excellent control while skiing
  • Front connection points are placed 10mm back from the front of the boots for a natural kick and good energy transfer
  • Supportive Energyzer cuffs enhance lateral support and help position your lower legs properly before and after kick
  • Proper leg positioning allows your lower legs and feet to relax, reducing leg and foot fatigue while also lifting the tips of the skis for less drag and quick ski return
  • Carbon 3D boot chassis provides high torsional rigidity while keeping the boots light; torsionally rigid boots off good support and control
  • Boot liners feature comfort foam, thermal-formable foam and Lycra° spandex for a great feel; thermal-formable foam molds to the shape of your feet for a custom fit
  • Salomon Quicklace Kevlar® laces pull snug with a single tug; lace covers with diagonal zippers keep snow out
  • Rear straps can be adjusted for better heel hold
  • RS Carbon boots feature a 102mm forefoot width and medium volume for great foothold, comfort and fit; boots have a slightly more generous fit than other race boots

Salomon RS Carbon Skate Boots - Men'sis rated4.5out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat BootsI love these boots. They've given me a new appreciation for skate skiing.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat performance skate bootThis is the first skate ski boot I've owned but I've rented several different boots so I have some comparison. I'm very happy with the fit of the boots; they are overall quite snug but with enough room in the fore foot and mid foot area to not cause cramping or pinching. They are very well padded without feeling too soft. They are slightly too high volume in the heel for me but I've got skinny heels. I had to size down more than I thought I would, a full size lower than my street shoe, so try on before buying if possible. The speed lace system is actually very good at holding your foot in securely but you wouldn't necessarily think so on first glance. For an intermediate skier I've found them to give me plenty of support and power even when pushing hard on firmer snow. One annoying thing I found is that part of the plastic heel support can rub against the zipper slider and make a little clicking noise when it's zipped up all the way but if you just slide it down a little bit there's no contact. One other thing to mention is that the plastic tread on the bottom of the boot seems to be quite soft as I noticed a decent amount of wear after walking only a few hundred feet on pavement. Just walk carefully and try to walk mostly on snow.
