2012-2013 Lange Ski Boots

For 2012-2013 Lange boots (Buy Direct) are featuring the same award-winning fit and performance as Lange's RS race/on-trail and RX all-mountain boots, and introducing patented new technology, the new XT freeride/adventure series delivers the industry's first, truly high-performance alpine boot that climbs. Unlike current AT and "sidecountry" boots, Lange's new XT boots provide all the climbing range-of-motion you need with first-of-its-kind, powerful, dependable downhill performance.

Here's Ray Rice's take on the Lange 2012-2013 ski boot collection.

Lange Boots

  • Z/C (160)
  • Z/B (140)
  • Z/A (120)
  • Z/A Soft (110)
This manufacturer has always made World Cup ready boots. The plastic used in the race boots is critical. The best thing about Lange is they continue to use this Poly Ether and Poly Urethane throughout their following models. Their R 11 shell is available in a narrow 92mm width, with Z/C (160), Z/B (140), Z/A (120) and Z/A Soft (110) flexes.

Lange RS Series

Lange made a new mold with a lower ramp angle and more upright stance, adding more toe box room. The RS 140 is the most responsive in a 97mm width and skis great. They also have the RS 130, RS 120 SC, RS 110 and RS 110 SC all of which come in the 97mm width. The SC stands for Short Cuff designed for women and shorter calves. Kids could look at the SC for stiffer boots, but less height up the calf. They also offer the RS 130 and RS 110 in the 100 mm width.
