Hey Chris, theoretically you can do nearly anything on race skis, it just depends what your priorities are. If you are mostly using this setup for spring skiing/mountaineering and doing a race every once in a while, I would recommend going with something in the 70mm or 80mm range to give you more versatility. What do imagine spending the most time doing using this setup?
Hey Chris, compared to the Alien RS, this boot will have a shorter cuff height, shorter BSL, and softer flex. It will have the Alien 1.1 lower and a plastic cuff. More of an entry level race boot, whereas the Alien RS has slightly more beef for “race plus” lightweight touring.
