I rode my Proto HDX / Contact Pros setup last Monday at Stubai Glacier in Austria and it felt great. Def really happy with the contact pros and yea I def feel they can go anywhere. Nice response, nice and light, I really love Unions straps the toe strap is awesome and the heel cup adjustability. Plus Unions lifetime warranty on plastics may be very useful. Only complaint is I wish they'd have used a tougher paint on the ratchets as the white is coming off a tad bit, powder coating them would've been a better choice than whatever paint they used in the ratchets
