Pro Now in its fifth season, the Beast may be graying, but its fangs are still sharp. The 12 is loaded with goodies. Its elasticized powerstrap maintains constant cuff/shin contact, and its slickly designed buckles have a "lift up" feature to prevent inadvertent re-closure, plus a hinged lever that reduces the amount of force required. The two-position flex adjuster has an unmistakable effect, and the women's Olympia version sports a lower cuff and more insulation. Over the years, Nordica has demoted the Beast in its line, aiming it at less-skilled skiers. But while it's great for cruising, it's capable of much more, and testers agreed the 12 could easily keep any expert happy. "Easy on the feet and powerful enough to put the pedal down," said Schaffner. Con Built-in arch support needs to be shaved down if you use custom insoles. Top Scores Entry/Exit 4.2, Adjustability 3.6, Skiing Comfort 3.6
