Strenghts:
Cruel down, color, interchangeable soles.

Weaknesses:
Heaviness, durability, cooling on / off

Summary:
Coming from Lange RX130 that I drove many years before. This boot is extremely similar in fit and how they feel like going in. It is a ski boot that gives security when standing on high speed and sloping terrain. For me, it is almost a perfect "one quiver" ski boot if you want to go half-long trips with wider skis. The problem is precisely the "one quiver" aspect. Although the boot works with its WTR soles in bindings made for it, it is not optimal, or what I would drive primarily. Alpine bindings really eat up the plastic in the heel portion. I have used the current ski boot (got a complaint last year) about 4 days in Salomon Warden binding, and gone 2 rides and the ski boots look a little too worn out. Both the heel has dents of binding, and the shell looks very scratched because of the soft plastic, and I can basically scratch the boot with the nail.
The state of play and the feeling up is quite ok for this type of ski boot, and if you primarily drive with tech-binding and wider / longer skis this is a fantastic fine boot. It is day and night when I drove my broader ride skis with these boots to my Dynafit Mercury. The ski feels completely different and so much more fun to ride down. The fit in LV, on my narrow / low feet is crazy good, and so far I have not tried any tech boot which can beat the fit and ride of Lange XT Freetour.

Strenghts:
Good performance

Weaknesses:
"Delicious" snow in snow that melts

Summary:
Works well but you get incredible wetness in Innerskon, it feels that water is pouring during lunch or after skins.

Strenghts:
The foot is perfect. Incredible power transmission. Good buckles.

Weaknesses:
the pants sneak in snow that either melts and bleeds down the feet. Or, freeze the water so you have ice cream in the pants.
Very thin inner shoe.
When you have constant wet feet you will not be freezing when it is relatively hot outside.
Once you have to take off your stomach-free and wet feet, it's an incredibly painful experience when the plastic is cut out so that it snaps into the ankle to your already sore foot.
The situation is rather sluggish.
the skull is soft so it easily becomes the marks and tears on the toy.
The outer dimension of the jacket is about 15 mm shorter than a corresponding boot of another brand, so there is a risk that you must move the ties on your old skis.

Summary:
Cruel down. If you just go down hard then they are great. But they should be used both in lift, on hike and on tour. They do not seem to have a whole day. If you go on a multi-day trip, do not forget about the drying cabinet,
