The Rossignol X-5 is a great boot for the beginning or advanced cross country skier that will spend most of the time on the groomed trails, but will do some light off trail skiing. An External Frame located around the heel and ankle will give you additional support as you glide through the woods. The X-5 has a Thermo Adjustable Fit that allows the liner to be heated to eliminate minor hot spots and accelerate the breaking in process. If you are a skier that will do light off trail skiing, and ski the groomed tracks you will love the Rossignol X-5! [+]
