The Deeluxe Summit is the posh model of the XV. The outside entirely from leather, the boot has a precious look and promises longlife durability. Additional to the fast lacing system, a Boa-system especially increases the heel support. The boot has a somewhat harder flex than the XV, this further increases the possible edge pressure.
Here are our results of the comparison test.
- Comfort: 8
- (with Thermoliner 10)
- Power transmission: 8
- Heel support: 9
- Boardfeel: 10
- Weight: 8
- Quality: 8
What we didn`t like is the abraision of the sewing. But it can be reduced to the minimum with Schuhguh (the skaters might know it) or with a certain amount of wax.
