Atomic Hawx Ultra 110 W ski boot review, 2017/2018 women's All-Mountain Category, from our equipment experts at powered by Masterfit.

Narrows should be narrow, that's our stand, and here's what testers said about Atomic's top-scoring Hawx Ultra 110 W's initial fit: Great for the true, narrow foot. Great, narrow, firm fit. Well-defined heel pocket. Good low-volume, snug, firm fit. Locked and loaded! The team agreed there's a little bit of extra room in the Atomic Hawx Ultra 110 W's toebox and at the calf, but that was about it; evenly snug everywhere else. "Solid fit for the veteran skier who values performance over cush," said Simones.

Extremely energetic was the consensus among testers, who enjoyed how the Hawx Ultra 110 W's lively forward flex (powered by the Grilamid upper cuff) loaded and released energy with every turn. "Consistently strong from the tongue through the instep, providing a power shield to drive your turns," said Powderly. Feedback levels were high, with testers saying that they could feel every ripple in the snow beneath them, perhaps to a fault, with a few saying the Hawx Ultra 110 W's transmissive feel could get jittery at times. Power to the edge was immediate and unfaltering, they agreed.
