Easy on the uphill, hard on the downhill.

The XT 130 LV Freetour Ski Boot is Lange's stiffest backcountry boot for skiers who appreciate the serene beauty of the backcountry but still desire a hard-charging ride down the mountain. Its 130 flex has the feel that advanced skiers looking for resort-crushing stiffness want. The 2.0 Ski/Hike mode uses a solid metal-on-metal locking mechanism that won't wear down with use and reduces play between the cuff and shell once locked into ski mode.

Lange equipped the XT 130 with an Ultralon liner that's thermo-moldable for a comfortable and customized fit. The XT 130 is available in different lasts to accommodate various foot sizes, and this 97mm option is ideal for those with narrower feet that want a snug and responsive fit from their boot. Underfoot, this boot features an Ultra Grip Walk to Ride rockered sole that eases hiking, enhances traction, and accommodates touring and WTR bindings. Metal inserts accommodate pin-style tech bindings for those longer tours.

Like a hybrid dream

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These boots are perfect if you're looking for a single boot to use for both resort and backcountry skiing. These feature an excellent range of motion for a hybrid boot allowing you to earn your turns without hating life. Throw a custom insole in these and you'll be loving em.

Could be amazing, Horrible durability.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These boots ski well and for me, having a relatively low volume and narrow foot fit very well. Out of the box fit and I've been looking for a boot like this for some time. Stiff and great downhill performance. This boot falls more in the heavy touring category and the wall mode is decent. It's doesn't have a ton of range but it's perfectly acceptable. I'd have a ton more great things to say about this boot but the durability is pathetic.

Check out the pictures. This is from 6 days all in a ski area with NO TOURING OR HIKING AT ALL... I don't even know if I can give this boot two stars. It's such a shame because the boot is so great in almost every other way and fills such a great gap in the market. But I've never seen a boot wear this fast, and it's infuriating just having spent $800 on them.

How can anyone ever actually use this boot for touring with plastic this malleable? I've owned lots of ski boots with lots of different plastic from ultralight touring boots to stiff downhill boots and I've never seen something like this. I don't know if I'll ever buy Lange again.

Could be amazing, Horrible durability.

That is very disconcerting... but what were you kicking?? that's all from impact it appears. what bindings were you running? I want to want this boot

Unanswered Question

Do these boots come with/are they compatible with interchangeable ISO 5355 alpine soles? Or is my only option to buy WTR compatible bindings if I want to ski these boots on alpine bindings?

Hot Lap Nirvana

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The future of ski touring is here for those who go beyond the “wiggle” to carve deep flowing trenches across the epic canvas of a big mountain. The Lange XT130 Free Tour is a fantastic boot for aggressive skiing and cutting steep skin tracks.

This is a rare touring boot that provides the same precise and balanced connection to the ski through the entire foot as an alpine boot. Additionally, it has the flex progression and rebound of an alpine boot. These features allow you to get low and drive a fat ski with the precision of a surgeon’s scalpel across steep and variable terrain; leaving a masterpiece solo track that others will admire, but not dare dollar sign.

That same balance and fit allows you to get all the grip from your skins on the ascent. A generous range of motion forward AND rear is suitable for long approaches. I have logged numerous full days on this boot without the slightest discomfort.

Buckles are easy and quick to use with gloves on. The Ski / Walk mode is more robust than a hammer and has not once slipped on me.

The liner packs in quickly, but there is plenty of adjustment available to keep the fit snug. My feet got a little chilly skiing waist deep cold smoke in the single digits, but warmed up just fine on the ascent for me to enjoy several laps of Eric Claptoning my way through the white room all afternoon. Note, however the liner is made to seamlessly accept a heated footbed. It also is reinforced for precise control on the down, and is designed to flex around the heel for comfort on the up.

Walk to Ride din plate limits this boots ability to climb rocky faces, but it accepts crampons without a problem. You may not want to drive your truck to dawn patrol in these boots, but you can set/climb a booter with confidence.

As a bonus this boot brings enough lime for an entire case of Coronas at the summit of your favorite sunset line.

My foot is a mondo 27, 101 wide, with a high arch, and high volume bridge and calf. The size 26.5 100mm (Not the LV 97mm listed here) version of this boot fit me perfectly out of the box. No hot spots, arch, ankle, calf, and heel feel great.

I am 5’8”, 170lbs, put my ass to grass in every turn, and find this boot to be a soft 130; but perfectly capable of driving a 112 underfoot ski through deep heavy pow, across hardpack, and variable hard-soft wind slab.

No problems whatsoever engaging my Dynafit Radical 2.0 in cold powder or wet soft snow.

I swapped to these boots from Scarpa Maestrale RS mid-season, and logged more tours than I can count on my fingers and toes through hardpack, heavy pow, suncrust, refrozen hash, corn, and beautiful cold smoke (IN APRIL!!!). The boots have proven durable thus far, and for the first time in a decade of touring my feet and legs are happy with my footwear on the up and down!

Excellent boot!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Go small on the size. I'm 11.5 in street shoes and am in the 27.5 low volume version (my feet measure 104mm but the 97mm last works). Nice even pressure across whole foot and calf - this is the best fitting boot for me with my big calves.

Flex is super progressive. The boot is obviously a bit heavy compared to other dedicated AT boots, but not that bad. The stiffness feel comparable to my old rossi scratch alpine boots.

Some people complain about the liner, while think it is great, much like my circa 2007 Intuition Liner. I got the superfeet carbon inserts and they improve the grip these boots have on my heel remarkably.

My other boot was the Salomon MTN Lab, I MUCH prefer the XT130 lv freetour - feels way more solid on the foot, way less play, and the walk mode is ok for max half day uphill. I wouldn't do 3 day tours in these things, but for sidecountry and the average day tour they are no worse than my old scarpa denali as long as I undo the top buckles and power strap when in walk mode.

On the downhill these things leave most other tour capable boots in the dust. I have them paired with Dynafit Hokkaido skis and Beast 16 bindings.

If it fits your foot, you won't regret this boot. The perfect 75% downhill 25% uphill boot!

Hi Tomasz, thanks for the review. My eye caught that you have MTN Lab, which i also do and i have put on a good 10 days over on them. Although my feet don't hurt after getting them fitted, they are also not the most comfortable boots. I don;t think i can actually tour in them for like half day but i also haven't tried. I am probably no more than a medium volume fit. I wear 10.5 street and 26.5 mondo for good snug fit skiing boot.

Have you tried the Tecnica Cochise 120? I am trying to make up mind b/;w Lange xt 130 freetour and cochise 120.

Will these work with a downhill binding?

Hard Chargers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Lange has finally hit on a niche that others have been trying to nail down for some time now. The Freetour 130 lacks a bit for comfort on long tours but makes up for it on the descent. The Ultralon liner is exceptional! This is what Intuation liners used to be made of before selling out and going with a chinese foam. I'd suggest this liner with a custom footbed and you'll be shredding on and off the resort. While its not my everyday boot I find I'm reaching for it more and more.
-Cheers and keep charging

Made the switch from a Scarpa Maestralle RS to these. The only con is the range of motion in walk mode is a little decreased. The power and fit are incredible... like a gorilla holding my heel. Only recommendation would be to look into an intuition liner down the road.
