2018 Rossignol Hero 65 (CLEARANCE)
This boot gets an update, with a new and improved liner, and new 3 color graphic look for 2018 to match the other Hero race boots.
The Rossignol Hero 65 is an outstanding boot for young, growing, performance skiers. It has a cool "race" inspired look, and it is not simply a "cheap as possible" constructed, little kid boot. But it is also not just a downsized adult boot. It is a true junior model that comes in sizes to fit the "tweener" who often has trouble finding the right fit and performance level as he or she transitions from entry level junior into adult. It offers a softer flex pattern, and light weight construction that is appropriate for teenagers who haven't fully developed into their full adult size and strength yet. The low volume shell fits narrower feet quite well, and has all the adjustment and performance features a good, growing skier should have. This boot in the Hero race collection is almost identical to the TMX 60 in Rossignol's line, with perhaps just a tad bit stiffer flex.
Fit is the most important issue for any skier when choosing a boot, and the biggest challenge for younger skiers is that they often have a very narrow, lower volue foot. The Hero 65 offers a true lower volume shell, with a very anatomical shape. The narrow heel section offers good hold for a narrow, low volume foot, but also flairs out into a wider, roomier toe box for all day comfort and warmth. All four buckles are micro adjustable, as they should be on any boot, to allow for fine tuning of the buckle tension for a comfotable fit as the day progresses. Also included is a Velcro power strap at the top of the liner to keep the boot in contact with the leg as it flexes, and to minimize shin pressure.
