Nordica – Speedachine 95 W
Nordica’s racing pedigree really shines through in the new Speedmachine boots, yet with a warm and fully customisable liner no comfort is sacrificed for the performance. Excellent lateral flex leads to great edge sensitivity, while the supportive but not overwhelming fore/aft flex helps transfer all the power you want to the ski while still cushioning impacts in bumps. The Speedmachines feature some really cool tech when it comes to fitting too, allowing you to precisely but comfortably connect your foot with the liner and shell. The cork liner can be 100% customised to your feet and moulded around any lumps or bumps, while the ‘Infrared Fit Technology’ works by heating problem parts of the shell which can then be adjusted using special suction devices without damaging or affecting the rest of the shell. If you feel the cold in your feet you’ll also love the Primaloft insulation Nordica have used in the liners to keep your toes toasty, while the ‘Weather Shield’ overlap system keeps water out even in late season slush. As a further ode to comfort, Nordica have included a soft flap over the tongue for easy entry ‘ say goodbye to the awkward boot room dance!
