Got the new Pilot boots to replace an older pair of Salomons which I loved. Two shops and the Salomon people swore the Pilot boots would match both the older Profil and new Pilot bindings. THEY DO NOT! The rear Pilot bar-pin does not align with the groove on the Profil binding. A very nasty surprise 950 miles from home!!
That said, these are typical, well made Salomons. Good fit right out of the box for my big, wide feet. And they are warm!! Good solid control especially when edging around curved track. Reasonably light, responsive, and a good "foot feel" for track conditions. Recommend for everything except racing.
