Nordica makes more boot than this (the World Cup 160 and 150), but we don't care who you are: You don't need it. Compared to its plug-boot cousins, the sleek, sculpted, shiny-black 130 Pro, a triumph of form following function, is 3 mm wider in the forefoot. But more important, it's just soft enough that you can actually flex it at speeds under 50 mph, its liner delivers a level of comfort not found elsewhere in this category, and you can take it off without hiring help. But even among the true race boots, the 130 Pro holds its own. And the minor sacrifice in power makes it an ideal freeskiing boot. Testers say: "Great lateral response, immediately and throughout the turn."
