Atomic burst onto the freeride touring scene last season with their Hawx XTD boots which boasted alpine like downhill performance in a lightweight uphill friendly package. Designed with inspiration from Atomic's popular Hawx line, these boots feature an overlap construction and a classic 4 buckle system that skis similar to a traditional alpine boot. For their 2020 models, they have made a number of improvements to their best selling line that promises to make a great boot even better.
The Hawx Ultra XTD 130 is the stiffest offering in the line and has the power to drive any ski. The 2020 rendition of the boot will receive Atomic's 'platinum' liner which not only holds its shape better, but provides a burlier feel with a stiffer tongue. Atomic also redesigned the buckles on the XTD to make them even more touring friendly- now you can achieve the same range of motion without completely undoing the latch. Gripwalk soles and a more conforming power strap round out the upgrades to this boot. At the end of the day, if you are looking for one boot to do it all whether it is ripping resort laps or doing a big tour in the backcountry, the XTD 130 can handle it all.

Atomic Hawx Ultra XTD 130 Touring Boots (19/20)
I had been skiing the downhill version of this boot and loved the fit (narrow, low volume foot) so wanted to try it in the touring version. Same great fit and excellent performance going down. Really like the liner in this boot as well. Super easy getting in and out of walk mode. Not a huge fan of the power strap and may change it out at some point. Just a side note, they don't come with laces. Overall, I'd say this is great boot for someone who values downhill performance in their touring boot.
