Salomon Kiana 2016 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The Salomon Kiana is a good mid flexing boot that can accommodate a pretty wide variety of riding styles. The Kiana has been around for a while. It has a great reputation for a reliable medium flexing ride anywhere type of boot. Most find it comfortable and feel it fits a wide variety of riders.  We are also big fans of the upgrade to their speed lacing system.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average rider’s perspective.

Salomon is sometimes can take a while to break in before it becomes comfortable.  That being said Salomon makes some of the best boots on the market. So if you are willing to take the time to break em in you could have a long-lasting responsive boot.

The 2014 Salomon Kiana hasn’t changed much from 2013 but there are a little more ankle articulation and flex retention going on.

The 2013 Salomon Kiana is where it’s at.  It has a new lacing system that is actually a speed lacing system.  Before the old lacing system offered great adjustability but might of been slower than traditional lace boots.  The new system is a pull for the upper and a pull for the lower that is more like Burton’s Speed Lacing System.

The 2012  Salomon Kiana has very few differences and it’s just a slightly refined continuation of the 2011 model.

For the 2011Salomon Kiana, we like the addition of the articulating cuffs and the tongue is more and more like a 3d molded tongue. The Kiana created good ankle articulation that helps the boot retain its original flex longer than other boots.
