Head 2008 RAPTOR 120 RS ski boots 25.0 / US 7.0
The Head Raptor 120 RS is a race boot built in the same concept as Bode Millers World Cup model, but it is made for us mere mortals. The Raptor 120 RS is made for the advanced to expert level skier who is looking to do one thing: make powerful turns. Strong club racers or masters level racers who want a more forgiving fit would enjoy the Raptor 120 RS. It offers Heads technical features like flex stance performance tuning, double canting, rear support tuning, and a FIS approved sole thickness (for those racers). Flex rating: 110-130.
The Raptor 120 fit is low to medium. The Head catalog describes the forefoot width as RS. To me that feels somewhere close to 100mm. The instep felt to me at best, medium. The heel was narrow to medium. Head non-race stock boots in the past have been built on the generous side of volume. This new design, although not a plug fit, decreases volume for a close fit.
