    No matter how hard or fast you push them, the race-inspired Lange RS 130 ski boots deliver turn-on-a-dime responsiveness without hesitation.

    • Shells made from a single, uniform material ensure the power transfer of the Lange RS 130s is highly efficient, even in varying temperatures
    • Single-material shells are also much easier for boot fitters to grind and punch
    • Shells are designed to create a centered, balanced stance using a low heel lift and an upright forward lean
    • Upright, natural stance makes it easy to stay balanced on today's shaped and rockered skis, reducing fatigue and increasing efficiency of skiing technique
    • Liners comfortably conform to your feet and precisely match the internal shape of the shell to create instant responsiveness
    • Boots hold to ankles and heels thanks to specialized, anatomic padding that resists packing out
    • Reinforced wedges in tongues remove gaps between liners and shells and enhance wrap on upper leg
    • Specially designed insteps provide excellent midfoot fit, resulting in heightened responsiveness, increased circulation and warmth
    • 1-piece toe boxes and tongues eliminate seams and overlaps in the tongue attachment area, reducing pressure points at the instep and top of the toes
    • You'll ski longer without hotspots thanks to the saddle-stitched seams in remainder of liners
    • Low-profile buckles sit low on the shell and creates a strong, precise closure
    • Adjust cuff tightness with a simple rotation of the buckle catches; catches adjust 20mm, corresponding to the 3 positions of a conventional catch
    • Elastic 50mm power straps provide exceptional flex and store energy from 1 turn to the next
    • With a 130 flex index, Lange RS 130 ski boots provide the responsive power transfer preferred by aggressive experts
    • 97mm last offers exceptional anatomic accuracy and a precise fit

    Please note: Lange products can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

    Lange RS 130 Ski Boots - Men's - 2012/2013is rated5.0out of5by1.
    Rated5out of5byfromRock solid boots for good skiersI ski these boots very aggressively, favoring steeps/jump turns/bumps first, and high speeds as a close second. While I also ski a lot out west now, I'm certainly not on the same level when it comes to powder skiing. I'm 35, 5'11", 155lbs and started skiing at age 2 in eastern Canada. This boot is meant to support strong skiers. The naturally solid and tight fit means you're no longer over-tightening poorly fitting or lesser boots. There should be no more need to cut off circulation to you feet just to feel more solidly connected with your skis with these bad boys. Seriously, I used to have a boot buckling routine at the top of the hill that would have left some snowboarders waiting for me. Just kidding. I don't ski with snowboarders :) But, as stellar as these boots are, there may be some custom work required for those with certain foot/ankle shapes. The changes Lange made in recent years to the liner on these boots make them accessible to a broader range of foot sizes (Lange's sales skyrocketed). If you have a really wide foot, there's even a version with larger shell width. If you're on the border, though, you might discuss the possibility of sticking with the typical width with your boot fitter. They can do some pretty amazing things. Regardless, one thing you should probably do is get rid of the insole. Particularly if you have a pronounced arch in your foot. I picked up a pair of Superfeet insoles (the green model) and the boot fitter trimmed them up for me. Super feet also offers a custom sole, but that's several times the $40 price tags on mine. These just make the support and overall fit even better. One other thing... I initially considered the RX 130 boots, also made by Lange. It may be unfair for me to criticize them, since I only tried them on in the store at room temperature (boots stiffen in the cold). But, I found that the flex on these boots was characterized by a kind of bobbing that I feared would not give me the same kind of support/resistance. The RS 130s certainly do stiffen up, but I can say that the flex resistance has a more uniform feel at any given temperature. The RX 130 just creates unnecessary confusion. Manufacturers, bloggers, salespersons, and skiers themselves tend to over-categorize. Just know that these boots are the flagship of Lange. They're freakin' sweet!
