About this Review: This review is my honest opinion of the ski boots, which I purchased with my own money in October of 2021.
The Rossignol All Track Pro 120 is a great boot for an intermediate to expert-level skier looking for a boot that can ski in both resorts and crush the side or backcountry. It’s a medium-volume (MV) boot with a 100mm last. This boot is a great fit for skiers who want to ski hard in and out of bounds.

How they perform
What I was looking for
I was looking for a new ski boot to ski at the resort well and ski like a resort boot in the backcountry. Something stiff, but not too extremely stiff that I couldn’t move it easily and fluidly. I wanted an MV boot to accommodate my custom footbed and have enough comfy room for touring.
Why I chose this gear
Having demoed the ski boots before I purchased them, I thought these boots were a good fit for what I was looking for. I chose these because they looked cool and skied so well for a hybrid-style boot. I also considered and demoed the Atomic Hawx Ultra 120 and the K2 Mindbender 120 for those hybrid boots.
What I love about them
- Accuracy of Claimed Stiffness: These hold true to the stiffness rating of 120. These boots have a higher cuff up on the shin, so they require a little bit more emphasis when getting forward.
- Accuracy of Claimed Fit: These have a 100mm last, making them a true MV boot. The toe box is comfy and roomy, and the heel cup shaping and the liner make it snug but not too snug.
- Comfort: The new T2 liner from Rossignol makes these boots some of the more comfortable boots I have skied in. With the addition of custom footbeds, they snug right up. The shell of these Rossignol All Tracks is semi-customizable, allowing any skier to move the shell to accommodate any foot problems.
- Flex: The Rossignol boots stand fairly straight up, so the movement to get forward is tougher than some boots that have that forward lean already. From the boot room, as I tried them on to on hill, these boots and their flex rating are smooth.
- Ease of use: With the synthetic liner, these boots are very easy to get on and off. My feet almost just slide in.
- Resort: From the multiple days I have skied these boots on resort, they crush it. They can handle the pow, the groomer, and that mixed crud snow.
- Backcountry: These boots crush it in the backcountry and touring. Are these boots a little heavier than some options available for touring? Yes. But they ski downhill as strong as a resort boot.
- Walk mode: The touring mode/walk mode gives an extra 50 degrees of range-of-motion, allowing the skier to have an ease of a day with touring and hiking.
- Grip: These have GripWalk soles, making them great for grip and walking. The sole allows hiking/touring to be easier, too, as it mimics a natural walking movement.
- Durability: Having skied these boots for over 20 days and had many touring trips and ski days with them, they have held up great. The plastic hasn’t been beaten too badly from ski-to-ski contact or walking from the parking lot.
- Versatility: A great boot to ski it all. I have a boot that can do both resort days and the days I want to tour.
- Responsiveness: It's a very quick and nimble boot. These are responsive and yet comfortable.
Issues I’ve encountered
- Weight: For a hybrid boot, these are pretty chunky. They are just as heavy as a full resort boot but are comfy and shred on the downhill.
- Heel hold: As a medium-volume boot, these don’t have a heel cup tight enough for my foot. But these worked out to be good with some padding and some good boot fitting.
Favorite moment with this gear
I was asked to go on a little two-day backcountry hut trip, and I knew my new Rossignol All Track Pro 120 would be great. I knew they weren’t the lightest ski boots out there for touring, but I was young and in shape, so I told myself that wouldn’t be a problem. Sure the boots were a little heavy, but after a few minutes, I didn’t even notice them as we toured. But, when it came to hiking up and getting ready to ski down, I knew these boots would give me everything I wanted from a ski boot for their downhill ability. They crushed the downhill. Meanwhile, my friends with touring boots didn’t have as much boot to ski with, making their skiing less fun on the downhill descent.
Value for the money vs. other options
Ski boots aren’t a cheap date, but the Rossignol All Track Pro 120 is worth it if someone is looking for a ski boot that can ski resort and backcountry with no problems. Some other boots to consider are the Atomic Hawx Ultra 120 and the K2 Mindbender 120, both great options for a hybrid boot but dependent on personal fit and ease of use.
In conclusion, the Rossignol All Track Pro 120 LT is a boot that skis like a full alpine resort boot. With control, stability, and drive, I have been skiing on these for two years, and it is my daily driver boot. This boot can really do it all.
