With a few additions to the 2020 Version the Women's Explore Boot is peak performance for an all-mountain boot. Salomon adjusted the power strap and shell to improve it's flex pattern, and increased the moldable liner to allow for a more custom fit when heat molding the boots. Weighing in at 1300 grams the MTN Explore is a perfect do all boot whether riding in bounds or in the backcountry.
If you are a skier looking to branch out and get more bang for your buck then the Explore in the perfect option. With full MNC compatibility the Explore will fit all alpine bindings suited with an AFD plate, but will also walk like one of the best AT boots on the market. The 2 buckle system gives you a straight forward flex pattern that won't lock up when engaging in tight turns but still have plenty of relief when hiking.
The Womens Explore is a great one boot for everything option, for ladies who skin at the resort, or for a fully dedicated backcountry boot.
