The Rossignol X6 Combi XC Ski Boots are a great choice for anyone who wants to be able to go both classic XC skiing as well as skate XC skiing without needing to own two pairs of boots. Whether you're just getting into the sport, are a recreational skier, or maybe a first time Nordic ski racer combi XC ski boots are really nice as they save you a ton of money while still providing you with the right equipment to participate in both disciplines. The sole of the boot is inspired by classic boots with a low profile sole construction for increased precision and power transfer. It also allows for a more natural feel and a very close connection to the snow. This sole is then supported by a 3D Injection High Upper Cuff that gives you the support and stability you need for skate skiing. Whether you're using the X6 Combi with combi skis or with dedicated skate and classic skis you'll be pleased with the performance it provides for both disciplines. While high level Nordic ski racers and those with lots of experience in either discipline or both may want more skate or classic specific boots, these are absolutely perfect for the more recreational skier or someone unsure whether they'll enjoy both skate and classic.
