Pro The Top Fuel is the off-road counterpart of the street-legal Speedmachine 14. It's built with the tighter fit of the Dobermann Pro but has a softer flex and more vibration dampening for better versatility. Testers noticed that its translucent cherry-red plastic stiffens substantially in cold temperatures, so don't be fooled in the shop if it feels soft. Nordica adorns the boot with a bunch of flashy but practical twists, including a stretchy Booster Velcro strap and old-school bail-style buckles. Testers gave it higher marks in the performance criteria than the Speedmachine, though it's less friendly in Entry/Exit and Adjustability. "It's one of the boot world's most reliable architectures," said Hogen. "It provides power and precision in every turn, terrain, snow and stance position." Con Chews insteps raw on entry and exit.
